In this study, Sajan George Perepparambil argues that the best method to interpret John 14,6 is to do so with John himself or to think it through in the context of his Gospel. He provides a new perspective on the text by interpreting it in its conceptual, literary, and historical contexts.
The Christological exclusivism of John 14,6 has made it a tough row for scholars to hoe and gain yield from in theological discussions. Sajan George Perepparambil argues that this text is not a problem to be solved, but rather a mystery to be understood, best done by interpreting it with John himself or by thinking it through in the context of John's Gospel itself. Using intra-textual connections to pinpoint the intertextuality of the text and interpreting it in its conceptual, literary, and historical contexts, the author provides a new perspective with particular consideration of the way motif.
