Qumran and the Origins of Johannine Language and Symbolism

  • By Elizabeth W. Mburu
This work sets out to demonstrate that the sectarian Qumran document The Rule of the Community, provides linguistic clues which illuminate our understanding of how the author of the Fourth Gospel used truth terminology and expected it to be understood.
