In The Adaptable Jesus of the Fourth Gospel, Jason S. Sturdevant argues that the Gospel of John portrays Jesus as an adaptable teacher, who accommodates to different people in various ways to a singular end, to bring each to faith. In the same way, the Logos accommodates to humanity via the incarnation. Adaptability serves as both an interpersonal and universal category.Early Christian interpretations of John, especially that of John Chrysostom, describe the Jesus of John by echoing characterizations of the ideal Greco-Roman pedagogue, adapting to his diverse students. By looking to such interpretations, as well as illumination from the milieu of the Fourth Evangelist, Jason S. Sturdevant provides a new lens through which to understand the characterization of the Johannine Jesus.Table of ContentsIntroduction: Adaptability and the Fourth GospelChapter One: Adaptability in the World of the Fourth Gospel: Presuppositions and PrinciplesChapter Two: Descent and Adaptability: the Pedagogy of the Logos in Philo and the Fourth GospelChapter Three: Adapting to Extremes: Variation and Progression in John 3-4Chapter Four: With Words and Tears: the Sisters of Bethany in John 11:1-12:8Chapter Five: Receiving the Resurrected Jesus: Mary And Thomas In John 20Chapter Six: The Shepherd and the Witness: Jesus with Peter and the Beloved DiscipleConclusionBibliography
