Each of the orthodox Johannophobia paradigm’s three planks identified at the beginning of the study is now shown to be completely insecure. Orthodox Johannophobia and its correlative, gnostic Johannophilia, have been exposed as little better than scholarly myths, which now must be replaced with expositions more historically responsible. Such expositions should acknowledge the profound influence the Fourth Gospel had on the mainstream Church through most of the second century and that the story of its reception cannot be accurately told without recognizing the common perception of John as a member of a larger authorial corpus.
