Abstract

VAN DER WATT, Jan  and  KOK, Kobus. The reaction of Jesus and his disciples to violence in the Gospel of John. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2008, vol.64, n.4, pp. 1813-1835. ISSN 0259-9422.

This article is the second of two articles in which violence in the Gospel of John is discussed. It is argued that Jesus' disciples used techniques of vilification in the Gospel, inter alia as way of dealing with the violence they experience at the hands of their opponents. Closer investigation reveals that they use vilification against their opponents as a pragmatic device for missionary purposes.
