Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This important new work explores in depth the relationship between the mission of Jesus and of the disciples as presented in the Gospel of John, and explores the implications of these findings for the contemporary church. Based on a comprehensive semantic field of study that integrates biblical studies, theology, and missiology, this volume represents the first time such an approach has been used for the study of mission in John. Andreas K stenberger begins by surveying the state of research on mission in the Fourth Gospel, then covers foundational linguistic, definitional, and literary matters. The succeeding two chapters contain the actual study of the missions of Jesus and of the disciples. In discussing the disciples' mission, special attention is given to the question of how later generations of disciples should be related to Jesus' original followers. The volume concludes with a chapter on the implications of K stenberger's findings for the Fourth Gospel's purpose and for the mission of the contemporary church. K stenberger engages recent missiological constructs based on the Fourth Gospel, most notably the so-called "incarnational model" of mission, and concludes that this model is seriously flawed and should be replaced by a "representational model" that views Jesus' followers as his representatives, who do not share in the theologically unique aspects of his incarnation.
