Throughout Christian history, the Gospel of John’s distinctive way of presenting the life, works, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus have earned it labels such as “the spiritual Gospel” and “the maverick Gospel.” It has been seen as the most theological of the four canonical Gospels. In this volume, leading biblical scholar Richard Bauckham illuminates main theological themes of the Gospel of John, providing insightful analysis of key texts.
Gospel of Glory will serve New Testament scholars and theologians as a reexamination of the Fourth Gospel by a master of their guild.
“Written in an accessible way, these essays will introduce Bauckham to those who do not know his work as they continue his stimulating contribution to the conversation about the elusive but engaging Gospel of John.” – Harold W. Attridge, Yale Divinity School
“These studies on the Gospel of John combine close attention to the details of the text with an open sympathy for its themes and emphases. They are models of theological exegesis.” – Larry W. Hurtado, University of Edinburgh
“No one interested in Johannine theology can afford to ignore this important collection of essays.” – Andreas J. Kӧstenberger, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Bauckham awakens readers to nuances in Johannine language and concepts of which habit has left us unmindful and makes visible the allusions to prophetic texts veiled by Johannine narrative art.” – Jo-Ann A. Brant, Goshen College
“From this point forward, no complete discussion of John and the Synoptics or Johannine sacramentalism (as well as the other subjects) can neglect this thorough, critical work.” – Gary M. Burge, Wheaton College and Graduate School
“I read Gospel of Glory with great pleasure….The first chapter alone (‘individualism’ in John’s Gospel) is worth the price of the book.” – J. Ramsey Michaels, Missouri State University
“From individual to community, from glory to the cross, from sacraments to dualism, from the call of the disciples to their later witness, Gospel of Glory breaks new ground….Readers of John’s Gospel–and of the others–will want to read this book!” – Paul N. Anderson, George Fox University
