Item description for Peter in The Gospel of John: The Making of an Authentic Disciple (Academia Biblica) by Bradford B. Blaine, Jr....
In this narrative-critical study Bradford B. Blaine Jr. argues, against conventional scholarship, that John's Gospel presents Peter and the Beloved Disciple not as competitors but as colleagues who together serve as composite halves of the ideal Johannine Christian, with Peter representing praxis and John representing faith. Not only does Peter carry out activities fundamental to Johannine discipleship during Jesus' earthly ministry, which include believing in Jesus, following him, and publicly confessing him, but he also demonstrates post-Easter missionary skills and is invested by the risen Jesus with pastoral responsibilities. Finally, in dying a martyr's death, Peter glorifies God. Peter, in fact, is depicted in this Gospel as an inspirational founding member of the Johannine community.
