Item description for Identity Matters: John, the Jews and Jewishness (Supplements to Novum Testamentum, Vol. 118) by Raimo Hakola...

This book challenges current scholarly consensus concerning Johns references to the Jews in two ways. First, the author suggests that Johns portrayal of the Jews cannot be understood as a response to the violent policy of Johns opponents. Second, the author claims that Johns portrayal of Jewishness is much more ambivalent than is often claimed today.

The first part of the book offers a detailed criticism on the so called two-level reading strategy which claims that Johns references to the Jews emerge from the conflict with rabbinic Judaism. The second part examines in detail Johns relationship to some basic markers of Jewishness.

The book contributes to the ongoing discussion of anti-Judaism in John and efforts to understand Johns historical setting.

Readership: New Testament and Johannine scholars, rabbinic scholars, undergraduate students, all those interested in early Christianity, early Jewish-Christian relations and modern Jewish-Christian dialogue.
