Given all that has been written about the Gospel of John over the past 20 centuries, can anything more possibly be said about it? Yes, says Jerome Neyrey—by reading this "maverick Gospel" in terms of ancient rhetoric and cultural anthropology.
By interpreting the text in these two fresh ways, Neyrey distinctively illuminates the Gospel of John, casting new light on its theological message and on such topics as Jesus practice of secrecy, foot-washing as transformation ritual, and the Jewish background of Jesus equality with God. Neyrey’s scholarly study will certainly educate—and at times provoke—attentive readers.
