Abstract:

Like the other New Testament books, the Gospel of John repeatedly appeals to Scripture (Old Testament). Preferring allusions and "echoes" alongside more explicit quotations, the Gospel of John weaves Scripture as an authoritative source concerning its story of Jesus. Yet this is the same Gospel that is often regarded as antagonistic toward "the Jews," especially the Jewish religious leaders, depicted within it. The volume introduces and updates readers on the question of John's employment of Scripture and possible implications surrounding its usage for the Gospel's audiences both ancient and contemporary. With essays from an international collection of both experienced and newer scholarly voice, "Abiding Worlds" offers chapters that focus on key texts, (e.g., Isaiah 40 in John 1:23; Jesus' harsh words to the Jews in John 7-8; Jesus's quotation of Psalm 69 in John 2) and others that pursue a more comprehensive analysis of John's use of Scripture throughout the entire Gospel.
