Abstract and Keywords

The recent study of the Gospel and Epistles of John has aptly noted the extent to which Israel’s Scriptures consistently inform the foundation upon which especially the Gospel was written. So pervasive is Scripture’s influence on the Gospel that its narrated sequence of events is wedded to a series of Jewish festivals founded upon Scripture whose focus is the centre of Israel’s faith and life that was the city of Jerusalem and its Temple. Therefore, the Gospel’s thoroughgoing interest in Temple, festivals, and Scripture has fittingly attracted the attention of a steadily increasing number of scholars, whose work has shed important light on the literary and theological nature of both the Gospel and the Epistles. This chapter offers a brief description of some of the most important recent research that showcases latest developments in the study of Temple, festivals, and Scripture in the Gospel and Epistles of John.

Keywords: Israel, Jerusalem, Temple, festival, Scripture, use of scripture
