His Witness is True

John and His Interpreters


Thomas Sister More

A contribution to the much neglected field of the history of biblical interpretation, «His Witness is True»: John and His Interpreters concentrates on John 19:32-35 and I John 5:6-8. It identifies the various traditions of interpretation which began in the Patristic Age and have persisted to the present day. The book also describes interpretations which are peculiar to a given historical period. Moreover, it discusses both the long standing points of view and the more time confined comments as reflections of the theological interests of Church figures down through the centuries. In this way, «His Witness is True» is of value in the study of the history of theology as well as in the history of biblical interpretation.
