Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Departure and Consolation: The Johannine Farewell Discourses in Light of Greco-Roman Literature contains the table of contents, acknowledgments and a list of abbreviations. Consensus is rare in New Testament interpretation, but not impossible. Much current Johannine study reflects a common opinion regarding the origins and historical context of the Gospel of John. Current trends place the Gospel of John against the backdrop of the Dead Sea Scrolls and other contemporary Judaisms, rather than against the broader Greco-Roman world. The effort to multiply generic associations beyond the testament is intimately connected to the theme of presence in absence.

Keywords: Greco-Roman world; Johannine farewell discourse
