Fredrik Wagener united in the present work shows analysis and ethical reading of John's Gospel. He is to provide for a comprehensive repertoire of tools with which both lay and professionals can explore biblical stories, but also other narratives. Exemplary applications, illustrations and tables make this part a practical instrument. The heart of the book provides a detailed exegetical part to the four named in the subtitle characters. All scenes in which they occur are analyzed and interpreted in terms of moral statements, rules, action impulses or ethical reflection suggestions.The figures appear characterized as models or examples of deterrence, as identification tenders or symbolic reflection media. Thus, a further horizon of the ethical content of John's Gospel is presented.
