Ecce Homo! Irony in the Christology of the Fourth Evangelist

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an essay on the irony in the Christology of the Fourth Evangelist. This irony is found in the Book of John, which presented an image of a battered and bleeding Jesus crowned with thorns followed by a description of the unearthly Lord who greeted his disciples after the resurrection. This chapter analyses this looking at verse five of chapter 17 in the royal prayer where Jesus asked the Father to glorify him with the glory that he had before the world was made.
