Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book on the legacy of John contains the table of contents, list of figures and abbreviations used in the book. The book investigates the early, second-century reception of the Fourth Gospel. This is an era when its fortunes are surrounded by silence and mystery. It was assumed, until quite recently, that Gnostic and other so-called heterodox groups were the first ones to appreciate this gospel, and hence the mainstream Christians avoided using it until Irenaeus rescued it for the church.

Keywords: Fourth Gospel; John
