John and Philosophy: a brand new examining of the Fourth Gospel deals a Stoic interpreting of the Fourth Gospel, in particular its cosmology, epistemology, and ethics. it really works throughout the gospel in narrative series supplying a 'philosophical narrative reading'. In each one element of the gospel Troels Engberg-Pedersen increases discusses philosophical questions. He compares John with Paul (in philosophy) and Mark (in narrative) to supply a brand new interpreting of the transmitted textual content of
the Fourth Gospel. of those profiles, the narrative one is strongly motivated by means of the literary severe paradigm. furthermore, via attending conscientiously to a few narratological gains, one could come to determine that the transmitted textual content in reality hangs jointly even more coherently than scholarship has been
willing to work out. the opposite profile is particularly philosophical. Scholarship has been good acutely aware that the Fourth Gospel has what one could name a philosophical size. Engberg-Pedersen exhibits that in the course of the Gospel modern Stoicism, works greater to light up the textual content. This relates to the elemental cosmology (and cosmogony) that's mirrored within the textual content, to the epistemology that underlies a significant subject matter in it relating to sorts of trust in Jesus, to the ethics that is
introduced really overdue within the textual content whilst Jesus describes how the disciples may still stay as soon as he has himself long past clear of them, and more.
