Focuses on John's rhetoric. It begins with a discussion of indirect accusation and gives examples of its use in the ancient world. The chapter next demonstrates how John constructs a dualistic narrative world and then peoples it with characters that can be compared or contrasted with one another. The chapter includes a discussion about John's use of homology and irony to reinforce the dualism of his narrative world. A discussion about the persuasive power of indirect language concludes the chapter.

Keywords:   dualism, homology, indirect accusation, indirect language, irony, narrative world, rhetoric
