Studies on John and Gender

A Decade of Scholarship


Andreas J. Köstenberger

Studies on John and Gender: A Decade of Scholarship gathers together fifteen of Andreas J. Köstenberger’s essays from 1991 to 2000 on two major topics, John’s Gospel and gender roles in the church. Part 1 «Studies on John» features an introduction to John’s Gospel, a chapter chronicling early doubts of the Fourth Gospel’s apostolic authorship, and a comparison of the anointing pericopae in John and the Synoptics as well as treatments of Jesus as rabbi, his «signs,» the «greater works» of the believer, and the two Johannine verbs for sending. Missiological insights from John’s Gospel conclude part 1. Part 2 «Studies on Gender» provides discussions of the alleged apostolic origins of priestly celibacy, the mystery of Christ and the church, a critique of hermeneutical fallacies, a survey of 1 Tim 2:9-15 and specialized studies of 1 Tim 2:12 and 15, and an essay on women in the Pauline mission.
