Contexts of John: A Review

The present volume on contexts of John’s Gospel includes papers originally read at a New Testament symposium in Oberwaiz near Bayreuth, Germany, in November 2001 plus several additional contributions. The occasion for this gathering was the publication of the “Neue Wettstein,” a compendium with parallel texts to John‟s Gospel from the Greco-Roman world as well as Hellenistic Jewish traditions, in an effort to combine the work on Greco-Roman backgrounds in Halle with the research on ancient Judaism in Munich. Serious students of John‟s Gospel who are able to read German (all the essays are in German; doctoral students, take note!) will certainly want to digest the various contributions to this volume.
