Abstract

VAN DER WATT, Jan G. C.H. Dodd's framework for understanding the Gospel according to John: An evaluation. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

During the previous century Dodd was one of the most significant and influential interpreters of the Gospel of John. His views on the symbolic nature of the Gospel formed the basis of his hermeneutical program for understanding the Gospel. He understood the Johannine symbols in the light of what he regarded as the relevant background material. Theologically he interprets the symbols within a Platonic-like structure, arguing that the symbols in John function as hermeneutical bridges between the background material and the theological formation of the Gospel of John. In subsequent literary studies this approach was and still is questioned.
