Chapter Summary

Fundamental to this concept of "implication" is the recognition that all human relations are grounded upon - embedded in - moral responsibilities. The study of the New Testament can be an attempt to test such conclusions against inherited texts and against one's sense of "self". The hermeneutic strategy of the Fourth Gospel stems directly, organically, from its historical situation. After establishing the rigorous interpretive demands supplied in the prologue, John begins to teach how to read his gospel by presenting what, for our purposes, might best be termed reader models. To speak in broadly generalized Hegelian terminology, the Fourth Gospel is an example of the confrontation of antithetical phases of history that begins a dialectical process the outcome of which is a specific creative synthesis in human consciousness expressed as a unique message of revelation.
