In distinction from those who would locate the Christianity of John
in a broad Hellenistic context, Marie-Emile Boismard finds Old
Testament motifs to be determinative, especially John's emphasis on
the prophet-like-Moses and divine Wisdom.
Moses or Jesus is an intellectual odyssey. The reputation
of this small book will be far out of proportion to its size.
It is a model of lucid scholarship.
R. Alan Culpepper
Boismard is one of the premier Johannine scholars of
this century. It may fall to us to mine this rich and
provocative work on Christology to color and support the history we detect
[in the Gospel of John].
Raymond E. Brown, S.S.
