Befriending the Beloved Disciple: A Jewish Reading of the Gospel of John by Adele Reinhartz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Adele Reinhartz engages in five different "readings" of the fourth Gospel. Each approach views the Beloved Disciple differently: as mentor, opponent, collegue and as "other". In the course of each of these readings she elucidates the three narrative levels that interpenetrate the Gospel: the historical, the cosmological and the ecclesiological. In the latter she deals at length with the so-called expulsion theory, the dominant scholarly notion that the Johannine community, which included believers of Jewish, Gentile and Samaritan origins, engaged in a prolonged and violent controversy with the local Jewish community, culminating in a "traumatic expulsion from the synagogue."
