The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic
Bargain Book Copy
Also available as Scratch & Dent for $5.39 USD
Bestselling and controversial bishop John Shelby Spong reveals the subversive, mystical teachings of the writer of the Gospel of John and how his teachings are more relevant now, in our post-Christian world, than ever before. Contrary to what is most often believed, the book of John is written against the background of a three year Jewish liturgical lectionary of the first century synagogue and written by a Jewish mystic who did not think of God as an external being who invaded the world in Jesus. Because of this, the fourth Gospel develops a very different and relatively modern Christology about heightened consciousness, inner being, and an immanent sense of God.
