Product Overview

Was the Gospel of John written in critical response to the Gospel of Thomas, an early collection of Jesus's sayings? Or was it directed to the Christians among whom Thomas originated? Ismo Dunderberg challenges these views, arguing that the two gospels, which have many ideas in common, emerged independently of each other at about the same time (70-100 C.E.). He also offers a thorough discussion of the identity and functions of the enigmatic Beloved Disciple in the Gospel of John, proposing that it is impossible to identify this figure with Thomas or with any other disciple and suggesting that it was in fact created in order to authenticate the contents of the Fourth Gospel.
