Full text not available from this repository.


The resurrection of Jesus plays a central and yet disputed role in the narrative and theology of John's Gospel. In this collection of essays, leading Johannine scholars take up key questions concerning the significance of Jesus' resurrection and its implications. Included are studies of the relationship of Jesus' resurrection to his ministry of signs, his crucifixion, and the faith of later generations. The embodied quality of the resurrection and its importance for understanding Johannine eschatology and life within the Christian community is given special attention. Literary studies explore the interplay between the farewell discourses and the resurrection narratives, the problematic role of John 21 within the Gospel as a whole, and the way the theme of "recognition" informs the interpretation of the Gospel's message. Careful attention is given to the theme of Jesus' ascension and the commission to forgive and retain sins. Together, these essays give a rich sense of the many facets of Jesus' resurrection and its importance for the study of John's Gospel. They also make a substantial contribution to the ongoing discussion of this central theme in Christian theology.
