The Sheep of the Fold

£29.99

Product description

Studying the Gospels must incorporate a detailed understanding of their audience and origins in early Christianity. Edward W. Klink III challenges a scholarly consensus concerning the original audience behind the Gospel of John, and provides a more appropriate model for how it should be read. The last generation of gospel scholarship has considered the reconstruction and analysis of the audience behind the gospels as paradigmatic. The key hermeneutical template for reading the gospels has been the quest for the community that each gospel represents. This scholarly consensus regarding the audience of the gospels has been reconsidered. Using as a test case one of the most entrenched gospels, Edward Klink explores the evidence for the audience behind the Gospel of John. This study challenges the prevailing gospel paradigm by examining the community construct and its functional potential in early Christianity, the appropriation of a gospel text and J. L. Martyn's two-level reading of John, and the implied reader located within the narrative. The study concludes by proposing a more appropriate audience model for reading John, as well as some implications for the function of the gospel in early Christianity.

Condition: Pristine.
