(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Beloved Disciple in Conflict?

Ismo Dunderberg (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the main positions in recent discussions related to the relationship between John and Thomas. It shows that the two gospels do share a number of theological convictions, which make their comparison a meaningful task. The fact that they represent different literary genres should be carefully taken into account in analyzing them. In principle, it is possible that Thomas’ relationship to John varies from one saying to another.
