Post Colonialism, Jeff?
- Thank you, friends, for addressing matters of tone as well as content.
Obviously, these are complex and involved issues, and all thoughtful and
informed views are welcome.
A question for Jeff Staley, here: How does one best perform post-colonial
exegesis on John? Or, put conversely, how can one perform anything but
post-colonial exegesis on John, especially in the light of its critique of
colonial and imperial Rome (consider, for instance, Cassidy's important
book, _John's Gospel in New Perspective_)?
Inquiring minds want to know.
