A LOVE SUPREME: A HISTORY OF THE JOHANNINE TRADITION
A CALLAHAN
Callahan suggests that scholars have wrongly placed the sequence and therefore the importance of the works collectively known as the Johannine tradition—the Gospel of John and the Johannine Epistles. His proposal includes literary, theological, and historical analysis as he argues for the reevaluation of a significant part of the biblical canon.
"The Johannine Epistles … are the literary beginnings of a process that ultimately bears fruit in a narrative representation of Jesus. In the Epistles of John and the Gospel of John, we learn that the greatest love is to live for one’s friends. Love is how one lives, not how one dies, and one may only die in love as one lives in love. No one has greater love than to put one’s life at the disposal of those one loves."

—from the Prologue
