      Good questions, Jeffery! I hope people will respond to them.

      Who is it who's writing this story? The leader of a
      small sectarian group at odds not only with the empire
      but even with others of his own religion and who
      believes that the destruction of a 'temple' will
      fulfill God's plan? One who believes that everyone has
      a hand in that temple's destruction?

      Does Johannine irony and the emphasis upon love
      prevent Johannine sectarianism from turning to
      violence?

      Jeff Staley


      As for John's Gospel, is Johannine irony merely
      self-serving anyway?
