Description
Summary:Surveying Jesus's ethnic incarnation -- Ethnicity and labeling -- Naming narratives -- Labeling an ethnic Jesus -- Ethnic assessments in the Gospel of John.
"In Jesus the Samaritan: Ethnic Labelling in the Gospel of John, Stewart Penwell examines how ethnic labels function in the Gospel of John. After a review of the discourse history between "the Jews" and "the Samaritans," the dual ethnic labelling in John 4:9 and 8:48 are examined and, in each instance, members from "the Jews" and "the Samaritans" label Jesus as a member of each other's group for deviating from what were deemed acceptable practices as a member of "the Jews." The intra-textual links between John 4 and 8 reveal that the function of Jesus's dual ethnic labelling is to establish a new pattern of practices and categories for the "children of God" (1:12; 11:52) who are a trans-ethnic group united in fictive kinship and embedded within the Judean ethnic group's cultural traditions"--
