Through a "rhetoric of distance," argues Carter, John's Gospel seeks to make normative for Jesus-believers a distanced relationship to Roman imperial power and resists those who would be more open to and involved in societal participation." "Carter suggests that the Gospel's consideration as a work of imperial negotiation must not be limited to an ahistorical, binary construct - an "us against them" mentality of Christians against Rome. More importantly, Carter proposes that even among Jesus-believers there were differences over what sorts of imperial negotiation were considered appropriate. This volume is an important contribution for those who seek to understand a nascent Christianity within the imperial context in which it was birthed."--BOOK JACKET." ;
