Beginning with New Testament reports of John as fisherman and extending through the most recent Johannine scholarship, Culpepper gathers stories from church fathers, the apocryphal acts of John, medieval sources, Victorian poets, and nineteenth-and twentieth-century historians of earliest Christianity about the exploits and the death of this apostle. Culpepper's sweeping study examines a multitude of sources, many of which are widely dispersed and not previously available in English.

Culpepper reveals images of John that suggest the power of historical tradition and legend. The resulting study is one of the most important sources of information about the development of Johannine legends, as well as one of the most successful efforts to overcome barriers that have traditionally separated New Testament exegesis from the study of the history of Christianity.
-Publisher.

Fisherman, disciple, saint, and icon. Culpepper provides a comprehensive view of the traditions surrounding this powerful biblical figure, from the first-century church fathers through later developments in medieval art and the Victorian poets to the 20th-century research of John A.T. Robinson, Stephen Smalley, Raymond Brown, and others.
-Publisher

This examination is not a biography of the man but an investigation of the legends that grew around him. Beginning with New Testament reports of John as fisherman and extending through the most recent Johannine scholarship, Culpepper gathers stories from church fathers, the apocryphal acts of John, medieval sources, Victorian poets, and 19th- and 20th-century historians about the exploits and the death of the apostle.
