Patheos: Philip Jenkins on the Endings of John’s Gospel

May 3, 2015
Philip Jenkins, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of History in Baylor's Institute for Studies of Religion, examines two accounts in the Gospel of John about Jesus’ appearance after his Resurrection: one in which he comes to the disciples in a locked room, and another in which he joins them at the Sea of Galilee. The writer of the first account no doubt intended the first as a conclusion, but almost certainly, a later editor or compiler added the narrative of the seaside encounter — probably based on earlier texts, Jenkins writes. "If there was one thing early Christians believed with absolute conviction, it was that Jesus was raised . . . Whatever materials the editor of John had to hand, he could not bear to part with either narrative." (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, covers ISR faculty and research.)
