VAN DER WATT, Jan G.. Johannine research in Africa, part 1: An anlytical survey. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.2, pp.1-14. ISSN 2305-0853. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/IDS.V49I2.1928.
This article is the first of two parts that contribute to the history of African biblical research. Africa's theological 'awakening', following the colonial period, includes the discipline of New Testament studies. In this article the contributions of theologians working in Africa on the field of Johannine studies are surveyed and evaluated. In certain areas theologians from Africa performed very well, whilst other areas should receive more attention.
