Like the other New Testament Gospels, the Gospel of John repeatedly appeals to Scripture (Old Testament). Preferring allusions and echoes alongside more explicit quotations, however, the Gospel of John weaves Scripture as an authoritative source concerning its story of Jesus. Yet, this is the same Gospel that is often regarded as antagonistic toward the Jews, especially the Jewish religious leaders, depicted within it. Bringing together voices of scholars from around the world, this volume introduces and updates readers on the question of Johns employment of Scripture and possible implications surrounding its usage for the Gospel audiences both ancient and contemporary.
