(p.449) 8 The Evidence for a Johannine Corpus
The Johannine Corpus in the Early Church

Charles E. Hill (Contributor Webpage)

The five members of the Johannine corpus have been regarded as having taken quite distinct paths towards acceptance in the Church. In the second century, however, writers commonly used two, three, or more of the ‘Johannine’ writings as products of the same author, sometimes inter textually to interpret each other. This chapter examines the consciousness of a Johannine literary corpus in the second century and explores the possibility that there existed at one time a physical Johannine corpus, an edition of these writings in codex form. The ‘breakup’ of the Johannine corpus is then chronicled in the fluctuating fortunes of three of its members (2 and 3 John, and the Apocalypse) up to the time of the canon lists of the fourth and fifth centuries.
