Let me introduce myself I am a South African and a Trainee ministerin the
Methodist Church, I have a particular interest in the Johannine literature.
I joined this group because i have a genuine interest in being at the
cutting edge of studying the Johanine books, I have done some studies but
feel that I need to do more before I am able to participate fully in the
I was wondering if any of you guys had articles that you could mail me that
will help bring me up to speed.
I would love to buy soem of the commentaries that have been referred to but
they are not available and I earn only Us$ 180 per month.
I study with a group of minister who come from very poor backgrounds and I
will. share any resources with them as well.
If any of you have an interest in the South African situation, I would be
glad to help. I am at the coal face in many areas particularly aids. Hardly
a week goes by with out me burying young people.
Perhaps someone in the group has looked at the Johannine response to
something like the Aids Pandemic
