John, the son of Zebedee : the life of a legend by R. Alan Culpepper( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Culpepper reveals images of John that suggest the power of historical tradition and legend. The resulting study is one of the most important sources of information about the development of Johannine legends, as well as one of the most successful efforts to overcome barriers that have traditionally separated New Testament exegesis from the study of the history of Christianity

"This book is a collection of essays on John 6 illustrating various current approaches to biblical interpretation. To understand this chapter, one must deal with most of the issues that confront serious readers of the Fourth Gospel. Historical issues and questions regarding the composition of the Gospel, the nature of the Johannine community, the literary design of the Gospel and its theology, all come to focus in a unique way in John 6. The essays in this volume are written by ten of the leading Johannine scholars in America, Australia, Europe and Scandinavia. The collection, therefore, provides an overview of current Johannine scholarship and a showcase for the various methodologies now being used in Gospel studies."--BOOK JACKET
Mark by R. Alan Culpepper( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark has been at the center of debate about the nature of the Gospels and their relationships to one another. The history of Markan scholarship therefore offers a good overview of basic issues in the study of the Gospels. It also provides an orientation to different perspectives on the basic introductory questions: who wrote the Gospel, when, where, and why? Mark highlights Markan themes and makes numerous cross-references between related passages. The Gospel, moreover, remains one of the pillars of the Christian faith and tradition, one that is endlessly fascinating, inspiring, and pivotal for our understanding of Jesus

Communities in dispute : current scholarship on the Johannine epistles by R. Alan Culpepper( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays on the Johannine Epistles draws together the best work of an international constellation of Johannine experts making new inroads into the situation, composition, and theological content of 1,2, and 3 John. The essays not only address communities in dispute in the early church, but they also further modern discussions among contemporary scholars as to how to understand and interpret these writings today. The volume includes fresh contributions on the relationship between the Gospel and Letters of John, Johannine ethics, the concept of the antichrist, the role of the elder, and a more accurate translation of a well-known verse in 1 John.

John and Judaism : a contested relationship in context( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gospel of John was written during the period of the emergence of Christianity and its separation from Judaism and bears witness to their contested relationship. This volume contains cutting-edge essays written by an international group of scholars who interpret for students and general readers what the book tells us about first-century Judaism, the separation of the church from Judaism, and how John's anti-Jewish references are being interpreted today"--
Eternity as a sunrise : the life of Hugo H. Culpepper by R. Alan Culpepper( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Prologue of the Gospel of John : its literary, theological, and philosophical contexts : papers read at the Colloquium Ioanneum 2013 by Colloquium Iohanneum( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A key to understanding the Gospel of John is, in many respects, its prologue; yet questions regarding its origin and background, its structure, use of Greek philosophical terms, and indeed its relationship to the rest of the gospel still remain open. The papers in this volume address each of these questions and were presented at the first meeting of the Colloquium Ioanneum, a group of distinguished international Johannine scholars broadly representing different nationalities, religious traditions and approaches to the gospel. The first part offers differing assessments of the background, literary, and theological elements of the prologue, while the second examines presuppositions, methods, and perspectives involved in philosophical interpretation of the Gospel of John.--Publisher's description
Taking it personally : autobiographical biblical criticism( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening of John's narrative (John 1:19-2:22) : historical, literary, and theological readings from the Colloquium Ioanneum 2015 in Ephesus by R. Alan Culpepper( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume provide significant insights into both the Gospel and current Johannine scholarship. The beginning of John's narrative presents interpreters with tantalizing issues. The elusive narrator introduces the witness of the Baptist, then leaves the scene. What is the function of the Isaianic quotation? What is the role of purification in John, the identity of the unnamed disciple, the meaning of the title, "the lamb of God," the "greater things" Jesus promises the disciples will see, the role of the ascending and descending angels, or Jesus' curt response to his mother? These essays also illustrate how, while the Gospel creatively develops and recasts traditional material, it also calls for its readers to actively engage in dialogue with the text." --
