A Literary Reading of John 5

Text as Construction

Series:

Francisco Lozada, Jr.

A Literary Reading of John 5 is a distinctive and critical study of John 5 from a literary and ideological perspective. This scholarly monograph employs a text-as- construction reading strategy that examines both the role of the implied reader within the narrative context of John 5 and the impact of John 5 on the implied reader. It argues that John 5 can be read as a reconstructed coherent and meaningful text centered on the conflict of belief and unbelief, which through the device of a failed anagnorisis can lead to an ideology of superiority for the implied reader.
