How can one explain that the Gospel According to John is both a great piece of literature and a text fraught with anomalies and contradictions throughout? What is the meaning of the fact that it was written in different stages, as these oddities prove? Why is the fourth Evangelist sometimes perceived as the "father of anti-Semitism"? In the fourth gospel, is Jesus addressing the people of his century, or is it the Evangelist two or three generations later speaking to his people at the very moment when Christianity is born out of Judaism and branches off from it? What body was lowered from the cross after the death of Jesus? The tortured body of a martyred man, his blood let like the sacrificial Easter lamb? A mystical body, the embodiment of God in the flesh, who through his death and resurrection atoned for the sins of all mankind? Or the body of a text?
