In Mapping Metaphorical Discourse in the Fourth Gospel, Beth M. Stovell examines the metaphor of Jesus as king throughout the Fourth Gospel using an interdisciplinary metaphor theory incorporating cognitive and systemic functional linguistic approaches with literary approaches. Stovell argues that the theme ofJesus as king provides one of the unifying themes of John's overall message. Examining the place of the Old Testament metaphors of Messiah, 'eternal life/life of the age,' shepherd, and exaltation in the conceptual metaphorical network of John's Gospel, Stovell asserts that John's Gospel describes the just character of Jesus' kingship, the subversion of power implicit in his crucified form of kingship, and the necessity of response to Jesus as king and his reign.Table of ContentsIntroductionWaterskiing across Metaphor's Surface: a Linguistic and Literary Metaphor Theory- Metaphor Theory: A Brief History, Definition of Terms, and a New Proposal- Linguistics- Literary Theory- Steps for the ModelGod Is King: Metaphors of Kingship in The Hebrew Bible- Past Scholarship- Kingship in the Hebrew Bible- ConclusionsThe Anointed King: Messiah and Kingship in John 1- Assessing the Conceptual Domains of King and Prophet- Discourse Analysis of John 1- Metaphorical Blending Analysis: Messiah and Its Related Metaphors in John 1- 'Messiah' in John 11 and John 20- Conclusion: Rhetorical and Theological Purpose of the Use ofThe Eternal King: Metaphors of Eternal Life and Kingship in John 3- Past Scholarship of John 3- Discourse Analysis of John 3:1-21- Metaphorical Blending Analysis: The Eternal King in John 3:1-21 211- Rhetorical and Theological Implications of the Eternal KingThe Shepherd King: Metaphors of Pastoralism and Kingship in John 9-10- Past Scholarship of John 9-10- Discourse Analysis of John 9-10- Metaphorical Blending Analysis: Light of the World and Shepherd-King in John 9?10- Rhetorical and Theological Implications of the Shepherd KingBlessed Be the King of Israel: the Triumphal Entry and Kingship in John 12- Discourse Analysis of John 12- Metaphorical Blending Analysis: Kingship and Contested Authority in John 12- Rhetorical and Theological Implications of Jesus' Kingship in John 12The Crucified and Exalted King: Contested Kingship in John 18-19Who Is this King of Glory?: Implications of Kingship Metaphors in John's GospelSummaryFurther Research Based on This StudyAppendicesBibliography
