The Incarnate Word
"This is an important contribution to our understanding of the Christology of the Fourth Gospel. It addresses an unresolved issue in the interpretation of the gospel and does so creatively and with admirable scholarship. The author has a gift for defining the issues, isolating the essential questions, and approaching them analytically. Moreover, she writes clearly and argues her case with cogency. I recommend this book with enthusiasm to anyone who might want to go to the heart of Johannine thought." " Robert Kysar "A tour de force. Marianne Meye Thompson takes on Ernst Kdsemann's oft-quoted conclusion that the Fourth Gospel depicts Jesus as 'God striding on the earth' and that its Christology is 'naively Docetic.' Her meticulous analysis of the humanity of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel offers fresh and balanced perspectives on the role of the signs and the Gospel's treatment of Jesus' death. From now on scholars will be unable to cite Kdsemann without responding to Thompson." " R. Alan Culpepper
Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel
Craig Koester's respected study uses the symbolic language of the Gospel of John as a focus to explore "the Gospel's literary dimensions, social and historical context, and theological import." This edition is fully revised and updated and includes a number of new sections on such topics as Judas and the knowledge of God. Fresh treatments are given on a number of issues, including the Gospel's Christology. This new edition offers both new insights and proven worth for students and scholars alike.
Jesus Emotions in the Fourth Gospel
This book seeks to discuss John's references to Jesus' emotions in the light of the current debate regarding Johannine Christology. The Fourth Gospel refers to Jesus' love, joy, and zeal. At times it also portrays him as troubled, deeply moved, and in tears. Do these expressions of emotion underscore Jesus' humanity or his divinity? The study is set against the background of the emotions of God as found in earlier Jewish literature, as well as against that of the emotions of Jesus in the Synoptics and the remainder of the New Testament. Voorwinde argues that the covenant provides the most consistent perspective for viewing both the emotions of Yahweh in the Old Testament and the emotions of Jesus in the Gospels. The Johannine Jesus is found to fulfil the hitherto incompatible roles of covenant Lord and covenant sacrifice. Rather than being expressive only of his humanity Jesus' emotions are also found to underscore his divinity. This is due to the unique genius of this Gospel with its paradoxical presentation of Jesus whose divinity is manifested most eloquently in his weakness, suffering, and death. Only his tears at the grave of Lazarus can be explained as a human emotion pure and simple. All the other emotions, because of their strong connections to the cross, highlight both Jesus' humanity and divinity, albeit for various reasons and in highly nuanced ways. JSNTS 284>
Thomas Love as Strong as Death
Thomas appears only four times in John's Gospel, yet despite this he is crucially important in understanding the function of the Johannine message. Dennis Sylva provides the first major study which examines the paradox that Thomas is both opposed to a dominant theme in the Fourth Gospel - the eternal life that is a gift to Jesus' followers - and yet is in support of Jesus himself. Thomas appears to have a foot on both sides of the Johannine dualistic divide. He seems to be existentially at home on one side and yet ideologically at home on the other. No other character in John's Gospel so tenaciously hold on to companionship with Jesus while just as resolutely distancing himself from Jesus' central teaching. Thomas breaks down the barriers between the disciples (those who walk in the light) and the world (those who walk in the darkness) that John takes pains to establish. Sylva's new work demonstrates the importance of Thomas in fully understanding the message of the Fourth Gospel.
