Item description for Your Father The Devil? / P.b.m. (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) by Stephen Motyer...
'This elegantly-written book breaks fresh ground' Graham Stanton
Publishers Description Is John's Gospel antisemitic? In John 8:44 Jesus tells the Jews, 'You are of your father the Devil', a charge used throughout the centuries by antisemites to fuel hatred of the Jews. And it is no one-off statement: throughout the Gospel, 'the Jews' appear as Jesus' sharpest opponents, ultimately seeking his execution.Who then are the Jews in John?'s Gospel? Defending John against the charge of antisemitism, Motyer argues that, far from demonising the Jews, the Gospel seeks to present Jesus as Good News for Jews in a late first century setting.
