New Exodus in John

  • By Kyungu Ra
Product Description
This book explores Christ's identity and his works in the Gospel of John in the light of the New Exodus eschatological Passover. It especially examines the relationship between the Passover and the firstborn who was substituted by the paschal lamb. The idea of the firstborn (especially his death) is reflected in some of the major Christological titles. These include: Only Son, Beloved Son, Davidic Messianic King, Deutero-Isaianic suffering Servant of the Lord and Son of Man. It is also found in major themes reflected in the narratives of John 1-4. Above all, John's Gospel introduces the Logos as the Only Son of God and Son of Man. This probably alludes to the idea of the firstborn and the Son of Man figure who fulfils the calling of the Deutero-Isaianic suffering Servant of the Lord. He achieves the restoration of Israel from exile and the salvation of the gentiles as the sons of God. Hence, the Paschal-New Exodus motif is an important prism for interpreting the Gospel of John and Johannine Christology.
