Item Description...
Beginning with New Testament reports of John as fisherman and extending through the most recent Johannine scholarship, Culpepper gathers stories from church fathers, the apocryphal acts of John, medieval sources, Victorian poets, and nineteenth- and twentieth-century historians of earliest Christianity about the exploits and the death of this apostle. Culpepper's sweeping study examines a multitude of sources, many of which are widely dispersed and not previously available in English.

Culpepper reveals images of John that suggest the power of historical tradition and legend. The resulting study is one of the most important sources of information about the development of Johannine legends, as well as one of the most successful efforts to overcome barriers that have traditionally separated New Testament exegesis from the study of the history of Christianity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great Overview of Johannine Tradition  May 27, 2006
I don't know what that last retard read, but it was not this book about John the Son of Zebedee by R. Alan Culpepper. He surveys the biblical, post-apostolic (apocryphal) and patristic traditions, and finishes with a survey of modern Johannine scholarship.
It is not a read for those looking for a devotional, but it is not a dissertation either.
Check it out!
 
Too difficult  Feb 11, 2004
This book is written exclusively for the academia and experts. It's a killer. I tried and tried but so many names and references and data and bibliography that when I finished it -yes, I did- I wasn't sure of one single thing about John's life. What was myth, what was true and what is hypothesis.
A waste of time.
