(p. v) Preface

The idea of a volume on ‘Johannine Studies’ in the prestigious series of Oxford Handbooks was first suggested to Judith Lieu by Tom Perridge in 2011. That such a volume would be valuable for general interested readers, for students, and for more advanced scholars seemed obvious, especially given the rapid changes in the field in recent decades. Inevitably, other commitments delayed any active response, and thanks are due to Tom for his long patience and support. Martinus de Boer soon agreed to co-edit the volume, encouraged by impending retirement, and it is unlikely that the project would have reached completion without the collaboration of two editors. Nearly all of the scholars initially approached swiftly agreed to contribute, and thanks are due to all contributors for their ready responsiveness to the editorial process. We are grateful to the production team at Oxford University Press for their helpfulness throughout the process.
