Like his previous studies on Mark's Gospel (1982) and Matthew's Gospel and The History of Biblical Interpretation, this study by Sean P. Kealy, C.S.Sp. of John's Gospel is much more than a mere list of annotated entries. The aim of these lively entries is to situate Johannean scholarship with the main trends of biblical scholarship from the first century up to the present while reaching out to the main corners of the Christian traditions. It is based on the firm belief that a solid knowledge of the whole Johannean tradition and its afterlife is vital for an adequate grasp of this key text.
