Signs in John: A Review

This book is a slightly revised version of the author’s doctoral dissertation written under Graham Stanton at Cambridge University. Its purpose is to provide an integrated presentation of the Johannine “signs” as they function within the final form of the Gospel, in contrast to previous studies that focused on source-critical issues such as the alleged Johannine “signs source.” The author seeks to move, first, from the text to the audience by analyzing the context of the “signs narratives” in the Gospel; and, second, from the audience to the text by way of a socio-historical investigation of the presumed audience of the Fourth Gospel.
