This volume collects essays by R. Alan Culpepper on the historical setting, narrative devices, and theology of the Gospel of John. It provides an introduction to the Gospel and exploration of key texts and major issues, including John's vision for the church, anti-Judaism, relationship to 1 John, irony, imagery, creation ethics, evil, and eschatology.
The essays in this volume, which span four decades, represent sustained reflection on the historical setting, narrative devices, and theology of the Gospel of John. Methodologically, the essays develop a narrative-critical approach to the Gospel, producing insights that have implications for historical and theological issues. Thematically, many of the essays explore the Gospel's ecclesiology, especially its vision for the church and its mission. As a collection, this volume provides an introduction to the Fourth Gospel, analyses of major issues (including John's anti-Judaism, relationship to 1 John, irony, imagery, creation ethics, evil, and eschatology), and in-depth exploration of key texts, especially John 1:1–18, 2:20; 4:35–38; 5:1–18; 5:21–30; 10:1–18; 12:12–15; 13:1–20; 19:16–30; 20:19–23; and chapter 21.
