John 2:12 comprises little more than a scene setting and plays no evident role in John's overall narrative. Thus it is surprising to find it in a text whose "author" knows that space is limited (John 21:25) and so narrates things serving a soteriological purpose (John 20:30-31). This paper compares John 2:12 to other similar brief independent "scenes" in the gospel, and identifies their literary character as "vestigial scenes": these are scene settings, which for some reason are not dramatized. The paper concludes by exploring reasonable options for explaining their presence in the text.
