"'No serious student of Johannine literature can afford to overlook it' D. Moody Smith, George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament, Duke University 'John Painter brings to Quest for the Messiah insights drawn from more than twenty years' study of and participation in international discussion of the Gospel. The result is a balanced integration of recent approaches, an attempt at a coherent but a static or monochrome interpretation. [...] [This] book must be welcomed for its contribution to the literary analysis and to the integrated study of the Gospel' Judith Lieu, The Expository Times 'I recommend Quest for the Messiah to all who are seriously interested in Johannine scholarship, the history of the Johannine community, the early Church's developing understanding of the person and role of Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ, and the perennial significance of the Fourth Gospel. That all these issues have been faced within the one study is an indication of its richness.' Pacifica 6, Feb 1993 (Francis J. Moloney, Salesian College, Chadstone, Victoria 3148)"
