These antichrists had erroneous ideas about Jesus Christ, ideas that also affected their Christian lifestyle.

The culmination of a lifetime of work on the Gospel of John, William Loader’s Jesus in John’s Gospel explores the Fourth Gospel as a whole, focusing on ways in which attention to the structure of Christology in John allows for greater understanding of Johannine themes and helps resolve long-standing interpretive impasses.
