9780814659526: God Dwells with Us: Temple Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel (Scripture)

The image of the Temple speaks of a building, of a place of God's heavenly presence, and yet the experience of many Christians has been of God's indwelling in the human heart. In God Dwells with Us, Mary Coloe crosses the centuries through John's Gospel text and plunges into the experience of the Johannine community. Here, readers receive a sense of God's indwelling as promised by Jesus, and how it relates to the symbol of the Temple in the gospel narrative.

In the years after the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple, the Johannine community looked to the symbol of the Temple as a key means of expressing its new faith in Jesus. During his lifetime he was the living presence of Israel's God dwelling in history. In the absence of the historical Jesus, the believing community - past, present, and future - continue to be a locus for the divine indwelling and so can truly be called a living Temple.

God Dwells with Us offers a new and consistent perspective on the symbol of the Temple which clarifies the christology of the Fourth Gospel. It establishes a new plot for this gospel - the destroying and raising of the Temple; and shows how this occurs within the text. The chapters provide a new approach to its structure. It is unique in its treatment of John14:2 where it establishes that the new Temple is the household of believers on earth. It also presents a new interpretation of the Johannine Crucifixion and the scene with Jesus' mother and the Beloved Disciple.

Chapters are God's Dwelling Place in Israel," "The Temple of His Body: 2:13-15," "The Supplanter: 4:1-45,""The Tabernacling Presence of God: 7:1-8:59," "The Consecrated One: 10:22-42," "My Father's House 14:1-31," and "Raising the New Temple: 18:1-19:42."

About the Author:

Mary L. Coloe, PBVM, is associate professor of theology at Australian Catholic University, specializing in the Gospel of John. Her books include God Dwells with Us: Temple Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel and Dwelling in the Household of God: Johannine Ecclesiology and Spirituality (both from Liturgical Press).

Review:

This is an insightful and persuasive study that will interest specialists in the gospel of John and everyone concerned about Jewish-Christian relations in the earliest decades of the Christian movement.Religious Studies Review

This perceptive study takes readers into the heart of John's gospel by focusing on a cluster of its major symbols. Sanctuary images offer engaging perspectives on Christ's incarnation, death and resurrection, and on life within the Christian community. Drawing together the gospel's varied symbols for God's dwelling place, this book shows how the ancient scriptures point to God's abiding presence.Craig R. Koester, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota

Dr. Coloe has written a much-needed and welcome study of the temple theme in the Fourth Gospel. Her work is meticulous and comprehensive, exploring the symbolism with sensitivity to its narrative and theological framework. At times, it is challenging and provocative, inspiring the reader with new insights into the temple imagery of this Gospel. The result is an illuminating study of a neglected and critical aspect of Johannine theology.Dorothy Lee, Queens College, Australia

. . . a lucid exposition of a major New Testament theme and an excellent illustration of how narrative works as theology. No library supporting Gospel study should be without it.Theological Studies
