In his comprehensive survey, Understanding The Fourth Gospel John Ashton divides the history of modern Johannine scholarship into three epochs: Before Bultmann, Bultmann, and After Bultmann. The reference is, of course, to the towering commentary on John by Rudolf Bultmann. In Ashton's view, which many would share, J. Louis Martyn's History and Theology in the Fourth Gospel "for all its brevity is probably the most important single work on the Gospel since Bultmann's commentary".
J. Louis Martyn is Edward Robinson Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He is the author of "The Gospel of John in Christian History" and "Theological Issues in the Letters of Paul".
