Abstract:

"Using various narrative approaches and methodologies, an international team of forty-four Johannine scholars in this volume offers sixty-four essays related to individual characters and group characters in the Gospel of John. With essays that present fresh perspectives on characters who play a major role in the Gospel -- Peter, Nicodemus, the Samaritan woman, Thomas, and many others -- as well as original studies of characters who have never before been the focus of narrative analysis -- the men of the Samaritan Woman, the boy with the loaves and fishes, Barabbas, and more -- this book sheds new light on how complex and nuanced many of these characters are, even as they stand in the shadow of Jesus. Readers of this volume will be challenged to consider the Gospel of John anew."--
