ABOUT THIS BOOK

Essential classroom resource for New Testament courses


In this book, a group of international scholars go in detail to explain how the author of the Gospel of John uses a variety of narrative strategies to best tell his story. More than a commentary, this book offers a glimpse at the way an ancient author created and used narrative features such as genre, character, style, persuasion, and even time and space to shape a dramatic story of the life of Jesus.


Features:



  • An introduction to the Fourth Gospel through its narrative features and dynamics

  • Fifteen features of story design that comprise the Gospel of John

  • Short, targeted essays about how John works that can be used as starting points for the study of other Gospels/texts
