Identity, Mission and Community : A Study of the Johannine Resurrection Narrative

The book explores the aspects of identity, mission and community in the Johannine resurrection narrative. Identity is defined in terms of Family of God, which is distinct from the divine family (the Father, the Son and the Spirit) and the earthly family. The Family of God, made possible through the work of the Father, the Son and the Spirit, transcends earthly categories and identities. It ushers a new set of relationships for the community where God becomes the Father of those who belong to the Son. Further, the Family of God also defines mission as witnessing to the shared relationship in the divine family to the world.
