Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the Ίουδα̂ιοι by addressing three questions. The first question asks who they are, the second what role or function they fulfill, the third why the evangelist rewards them with such hostility. On the pages of Novum Testamentum, two important articles by Malcolm Lowe on the identity of Ίουδα̂ιοι appeared. The one that focused primarily on the Fourth Gospel provides the starting point in this chapter's reflections. The chapter concludes that while the allegorical and symbolic function of the term ‘Ίουδα̂ιοι’ is unaffected by these findings, it raises the possibility that previously suggested identifications were not quite right.

Keywords: Lowe; Ίουδα̂ιοι; identity of Ίουδα̂ιοι; function of Ίουδα̂ιοι; Novum Testamentum
