Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Recognizing the Stranger contains the table of contents, the recognitions and the abbreviations. The book is the first monographic study of recognition scenes and motifs in the Gospel of John. It offers a reconstruction of the conventions of the genre and argues that it is one of the most recurrent and significant literary forms in the Gospel. When portraying Jesus as the divine stranger from heaven, the Gospel employs and transforms the formal and ideological structures of the type-scene in order to show how Jesus? true identity can be recognized behind the half-mask of his human appearance.

Keywords: Gospel of John; Jesus; recognition scenes
