Tricia Gates Brown employs the methodology of socio-scientific biblical criticism to investigate the pneumatology of John and 1 John. She argues that the meaning of spirit in John and 1 John is best understood using the anthropological model of brokerage. The model of patronage and its relevance to the socio-cultural world of John's gospel is also discussed. Spirit in the Writings of John examines the development in pneumatology between John and 1 John and analyses what this suggests about the socio-cultural context of the Johannine community. There is a discussion of the meaning of the term paracletos in literature antedating John, and the dominant view that the word was a formal forensic term is challenged. This is volume 253 in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series.
-Publisher

Employing the methodology of social-scientific biblical criticism, the author investigates the pneumatology of John and 1 John. All of the spirit passages in John receive attention, and the pneumatology of 1 John is studied with a view to the development between the two writings, and to what it suggests about the sociocultural context of the Johannine community. The author asserts that the spirit in John is characterized as a broker, and that this understanding figures prominently in the theology of the Fourth Evangelist, as well as in the debate reflected in 1 John.
