Chapter Summary

This chapter presents concluding remarks for the book The Temporal Mechanics of the Fourth Gospel, which posits an innovative approach to discerning the temporal mechanics of the Fourth Gospel. Modern chronology, based on an absolute time-line, was cutting edge science in the 17th century, and the appropriation of this concept of time for an analysis of the temporal mechanics of the Fourth Gospel would have seemed as unusual to some readers in that time period as the idea of applying the temporality of the modern physics conception of time will seem to some readers in this age. In the end, the book recognizes that the concept of an absolute chronology has been of immeasurable benefit to the study of narrative, historiography, and Gospel, just as other conceptions of time-such as the modern physics paradigm-may also be of benefit one day.

Keywords:Fourth Gospel; modern chronology; modern physics conception of time; temporal mechanics
