Beginning with an introduction that surveys methodological approaches used in the study of how scriptural allusions, quotations, and references function in John, these specially commissioned chapters are grouped into four categories that represent the breadth of current interpretive interests.

The parts are as follows: (1) historical-critical approaches, (2) rhetorical and linguistic approaches, (3) social memory approaches, and (4) literary approaches. Each study contains not only recent research on the function of scripture in John, but also an explanation of the approach that is taken, making the collection an ideal resource for both scholars and students who are interested in the complexities of interpretation in John's context as well as ours. This volume is the fourth in a set of volumes within the Library of New Testament Studies entitled Biblical Interpretation in Early Christian Gospels, which together explore current approaches to the study of scripture in the Gospels.
