God Dwells with Us
Full Product Description
In the years after the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple, the Johannine community looked to the symbol of the Temple as a key means of expressing its new faith in Jesus. During his lifetime he was the living presence of Israel's God dwelling in history. In the absence of the historical Jesus, the believing community—past, present, and future—continue to be a locus for the divine indwelling and so can truly be called a living Temple.
God Dwells with Us offers a new and consistent perspective on the symbol of the Temple which clarifies the christology of the Fourth Gospel. It establishes a new plot for this gospel—the destroying and raising of the Temple; and shows how this occurs within the text. The chapters provide a new approach to its structure. It is unique in its treatment of John 14:2 where it establishes that the new Temple is the household of believers on earth. It also presents a new interpretation of the Johannine Crucifixion and the scene with Jesus' mother and the Beloved Disciple.
Chapters are "God's Dwelling Place in Israel," "The Temple of His Body: 2:13-15," "The Supplanter: 4:1-45," "The Tabernacling Presence of God: 7:1-8:59," "The Consecrated One: 10:22-42," "My Father's House 14:1-31," and "Raising the New Temple: 18:1-19:42."
