A critical analysis of the historicity of the Gospel of John

Since it began in 2002, the John, Jesus, and History Project has assessed critically the modern disparaging of John's historicity and has found this bias wanting. In this third volume, an international group of experts demonstrate over two dozen ways in which John contributes to an enhanced historical understanding of Jesus and his ministry.


  • An introductory essay on the state of the research in Jesus and Johannine studies
  • Close examination of Johannine-Synoptic similarities and differences and their implications
  • An overview of the contributions and implications for historical-Jesus research
