ABOUT THIS BOOK

New and challenging readings of biblical characters



This volume of collected essays introduces the concept of interfigurality, the interrelations and interdependence between characters in the Gospel of John and in the Synoptic Gospels and the Hebrew Bible.The essays are informed by a narrative-critical reader-response, (post)feminist hermeneutics and an autobiographical approach to biblical texts. This volume encourages transformative encounters between present-day readers and the ancient biblical texts.



Features:


  • Previously unpublished conference papers and published essays

  • A new perspective on the relation between New Testament and Hebrew Bible

  • Foreword by Fernando F. Segovia
