"Werner Kelber's The Oral and the Written Gospel substantially
challenged predominant paradigms for understanding early Jesus
traditions and the formation of written Gospels. Since that
publication, a more precise and complex picture of first-century
media culture has emerged. Yet while issues of orality, aurality,
performance, and mnemonics are now well voiced in Synoptic Studies,
Johannine scholars remain largely unaware of such issues and their
implications. The highly respected contributors to this book seek
to fill this lacuna by exploring various applications of orality,
literacy, memory, and performance theories to the Johannine
Literature in hopes of opening new avenues for future discussion.
Part 1 surveys the scope of the field by introducing the major
themes of ancient media studies and noting their applicability to
the Fourth Gospel and the Johannine Epistles. Part 2 analyzes major
themes in the Johannine Literature from a media perspective, while
Part 3 features case studies of specific texts. Two responses by
Gail O'Day and Barry Schwartz complete the volume. "
