The Gospel of John Main Page
wow... this looks pretty cool. Really looking forward to meeting folks that are also interested in christian origins and early christianity via this mechanism. Just getting a handle on how to use the over all ccel mechanism, but it seems pretty cool.
Began re-reading GJohn the other night to get into the mood for this group. I have spent more time on the synoptics than GJohn, so i have not spent as much time with it as the others. It's is really interesting as I was reading it last night to see jesus really as a super heroic character, compared to what I am used to in the synoptics. I also notice much more how the writer is addressing a number of issues in the church at the time.
I'm trying to get a handle, like with all christian documents on the texts date. Currently I am thinking perhaps around 160-200ce, perhaps sometime in the time frame of someone like Irenaeus.
