A prominent Scripture scholar opens the riches of the gospel of John, revealing the profound spiritual vision offered to every reader. This book invites the reader to accept the invitation of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel to dwell in my word in order to know the liberating truth that He is and that He offers.
-Publisher

This book invites the reader to accept the invitation of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel to "Dwell in my word" in order to know the liberating truth that he is and that he offers. Intended not only for scholars specializing in the Gospel of John but also for educated lay believers seeking to nourish their faith, the book supplies the necessary background material to make this highly symbolic and theologically rich text accessible to the serious reader. Against this background it offers an interpretation based on the interdisciplinary exegetical approach leading into the unique johannine spirituality, of a number of the most engaging symbolic narratives in the Fourth Gospel. Each of these narratives presents Jesus interacting with individuals with whom the reader is invited to identify in order to encounter Jesus in and through the text as his contemporaries encountered him in his earthly life. The purpose of the book parallels that of the Gospel itself, which claims that "these things were written that you may believe...and that believing you may have life in his name."
