Reading the Tapestry

A Literary-Rhetorical Analysis of the Johannine Resurrection Narrative (John 20-21)


Larry Darnell George

Reading the Tapestry proposes a literary-rhetorical, temporal process of reading the fourth Gospel’s resurrection narrative (John 20-21) from the perspective of the implied reader in the text, according to the strategies of the implied author. Informed by narrative criticism and reader response criticism, Larry Darnell George unpacks the narrative and rhetorical devices of the three episodes and twelve scenes and argues that the entire resurrection narrative represents a finely woven tapestry, a coherent unified narrative text on its own terms and as it now stands.
