Aposynagōgos and the Historical Jesus in John: Rethinking the Historicity of the Johannine Expulsion Passages (Biblical Interpretation Series)

Jonathan Bernier


In Aposynagogos and the ancient Jesus in John, Jonathan Bernier makes use of the critical-realist hermeneutics constructed by way of Bernard Lonergan and Ben F. Meyer to survey ancient facts suitable to the Johannine expulsion passages (John 9:22, 12:42, 16:2). He evaluates the key modern interpretative traditions concerning those passages, particularly that they describe no longer occasions of Jesus' lifetime yet particularly the implementation of the Birkat ha-Minim within the first first-century, or that they describe no longer ancient occasions in any respect yet serve in basic terms to build Johannine identification. opposed to either traditions Bernier argues that those passages plausibly describe occasions which may have occurred in the course of Jesus' lifetime.
