A thorough analysis of both critical and conservative scholarship relative to the historical reliability of the Gospel of John. Many scholars, like the members of the Jesus Seminar, largely dismiss this Gospel as unreliable. Many critical scholars like Maurice Casey vigorously attack more traditional studies, trying to demonsrate that there is precious little historical accuracy in John. Blomberg accurately presents the viewpoints and evidence of such scholars, while also presenting solid evidence for the historical reliability of the Gospel of John. He points out that many critical scholars continue simply to ignore most conservative scholarship.

An introduction frames the pathway into the discussion, taking up critical issues. In his commentary examining the text of the Fourth Gospel, Blomberg asks two essential questions. First, using the recently nuanced criteria of authenticity, :What positive evidence do we have that the actions or words of the characters in John's narrative are indeed historical?" Second, "Is there anything in the text?that is implausible within the historical context to which it is attributed, particularly if we assume the general historical trustworthiness of the Synoptics?" The result is a seminal work for our day, one that affirms the historical reliability of John's Gospel with intelligence and sure-footed care.NOTES: Purchased from CBD.
