Debating the Johannine Community with Paul Anderson

In the weeks since the publication of my article, “Did the Johannine Community Exist?” Paul Anderson (George Fox University) published a response article at the Bible and Interpretation blog. I was invited to write a response, in turn.

Both pieces are live:

Anderson’s response to “Did the Johanniune Community Exist?”
(“On Biblical Forgeries and Imagined Communities—A Critical Analysis of Recent Criticism”)

Méndez’ response to Anderson.
(“The Elusive Contexts of the Johannine Literature”)
