Re: [John_Lit] John 5
- Interesting to hear the John 5:1-6 application to contemporary Israel.
Please avoid that type of reading, Rog.
However, on the possibility that the porticoes are a symbol of Torah, the
best (and most authoritative) voice on that has been C. H. Dodd, "The
Interpretation of the Fourth Gospel." I am at home, and do not have the book
with me ... but it has to be about pp. 320 ff. Just find his section (second
part of the book) which "reads" through the narrative.
Hope that is of some help.
