Part one discusses issues related to the historical and ideological context in which the Fourth Gospel was produced. Part two explores the possibility of oral and written sources that the Fourth Evangelist may have utilized. Part three compares the Fourth Gospel with early non-canonical literature to identify various ways in which Jesus traditions were appropriated by early Christians. 382 Pages.
