Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Johann Sebastian Bach's St John Passion (BWV 245): A Theological Commentary contains the table of contents, list of tables and figures, list of abbreviations, foreword, and acknowledgements. St John's account of the trial and death of Jesus contains some of the densest, as well as the most vivid, writing in his already astonishing Gospel. Roman historians have long agreed that the detailed presentation of the to-and-fro between Jesus, Pontius Pilate and the Judaean leaders and crowds carries strong historical verisimilitude: this is, more or less, how such Roman trials would have been. John's Gospel has often been seen as the very heart of an authentic Christian spirituality.

Keywords: authentic Christian spirituality; Judaean leaders; Roman historians
