Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on one particular text: John 17:12. In spite of the fact that the verse has come in for relatively little attention by scholars, there are five proposals regarding the text which are detailed in the chapter. The first proposal focuses on the term 'son of perdition' and argues that the phrase is derived from similar usage in the Old Testament (OT). A second proposal has been made by Freed who claimed that the text is to be read in connection with 6:70-71 and 18:9. The third proposal is that the text is to be read in connection with Prov 24:22a. A fourth proposal was made by J. Danielou in 1974. A fifth, and by far the most common, opinion is that 17:12 refers to John 13:18 which, in turn, refers to Psalm 41:10.

Keywords: John 17:12; past proposals; Prov 24:22a; son of perdition
