Book: Jesus in John's Gospel

Jesus in Johns Gospel by Victor C Pfitzner
The portrait of Jesus in John's Gospel is unique. The gospel's language and imagery are simple, yet its message has layers of meaning not immediately apparent to modern readers. This book helps us to appreciate the dramatic quality of John's Gospel, its world of thought, it's confession to Jesus as God's special emissary. As the witness of a faith-community John's Gospel tells us less who Jesus was than who he is now - the one from above who draws us into God's very life - and invites us to meditate on this gift while worshipping the Giver.
