Johannine literature offers some of the most beautiful, majestic, and profound theology in the entire Bible. Within its pages can be found the highest Christology, the capstone of eschatology, and the heartbreaking struggles of a community committed to Christ. However, it does not always get the attention it deserves in New Testament studies.
This festschrift seeks to remedy that by drawing together some of the most respected biblical scholars, who bring their expertise to bear on various aspects of the Gospel of John, Revelation, and the Johannine Epistles. Their contributions have been collected in honor and celebration of the career of Benny C. Aker—a preeminent Pentecostal scholar, teacher, and mentor.
