Abstract:

Was Jesus ever married? Yes, indeed, says Addison Hodges Hart -- but not in the way that recent sensationalist writers have claimed. In this book Hart opens an illuminating window into John's gospel as he explores its rich, poetic imagery, particularly the metaphorical significance of "the woman." Inspired by the writings of early church fathers and medieval theologians, Hart presents the gospel of John as an incarnational, sacramental text and shows that it is primarily a revelation of salvation, deeply mystical and intended to lead its readers into a living relationship with the one who is the bridegroom of his people.
