[W]hat the reader finds is a fresh argument based upon rhetorical analysis that builds upon Reinhartz’s previous work and is likely to persuade many to her position that anti-Judaism is part of the constitutive fabric of the Gospel. . . . I approached reading this work as both a compliant reader, insofar as I have great respect for Adele Reinhartz’s work, and a resistant reader, insofar as I was not ready to let go of the hope that John’s anti-Jewish tenor could be defused. I must, however, concede that Reinhartz’s analysis of Johannine rhetoric and her propulsion theory makes sense, not just of bits and pieces of the Gospel, but of the entire fabric of it. I can find no loose threads with which to unravel it. The task at hand now is to acknowledge this anti-Judaism forthrightly when I study, preach, and teach from this Gospel.
