The Johannine Corpus in the Early Church

Charles E. Hill

  • Ground-breaking - destroys the common stereotype of the Fourth Gospel as a 'maverick' Gospel which was almost too dangerous (i.e. too gnostic) for general Christian consumption.
  • The most thorough study of the subject ever, uncovering forgotten and misinterpreted texts and illuminating a large amount of historical material
  • Interacts critically with and demonstrates the failure of the dominant scholarly analysis of its subject
  • Lays the foundation for a more historically grounded study of the Johannine literature and the history of the New Testament canon.
