Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Identity Matters: John, the Jews and Jewishness contains a table of contents, and acknowledgments. In the synoptics, Jesus meets a wide variety of groups in Jewish society, including the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the scribes, priests and chief priests, the elders, tax collectors, sinners and the common crowd. Some of these groups also appear in John, but those who speak with Jesus are generally called 'the Jews'. The conflict between Jesus and those called the Jews is more consistent and hostile than the conflict between Jesus and his opponents in the synoptics.

Keywords: Jewish society; Pharisees
