ABOUT THIS BOOK
A window into early Judaism and Christianity
The Gospel of John was written during the period of the emergence of Christianity and its separation from Judaism and bears witness to their contested relationship. This volume contains eighteen cutting-edge essays written by an international group of scholars who interpret for students and general readers what the book tells us about first-century Judaism, the separation of the church from Judaism, and how John's anti-Jewish references are being interpreted today.
- A debate over the process that led to the separation of the church from Judaism, and John's place in that process
- A review of recent interpretations of John's anti-Jewish references
- An assessment of the current status of Jewish Christian relations
