Summary
In contrast to most early Christian texts, which feature Jesus's name, the Gospel of John emphasizes the name of the Father alongside Jesus's name. Joshua J. F. Coutts argues that John was attracted to the category of God's name because of its significance in Isaiah, and because the accusation against early Christians that they had blasphemed God's name sensitized him to the topic.
