About the Author

Dean Furlong is a research fellow with the Centre for Contextual Biblical Interpretation (CCBI).


This is an excellent examination of the historical sources regarding the John who wrote the Gospel, and the various traditions concerning his identity, his death, and his place amongst the Evangelists. This will no doubt become a standard reference point for many years to come.
*Fr John Behr, St Vladimir’s Seminary, New York, and Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam*
