Obiettivi didattici:
 
The course is meant to systematically present the concept of sin as reflected in the Gospel of John and the First Epistle of John.
Contenuti delle lezioni:
 
The topic, the Johannine understating of sin, will be introduced by a short overview of the ancient Jewish understanding of sin as reflected in the canonical writings of the Old Testament and the extra-canonical Jewish literature of the Second Temple Period. Discussing the Fourth Gospel, the focus will be on all texts in which the vocabulary of sin occurs, and the presentation will adopt the following thematic structure: (1) The remission of sin (1:29; 20:23); (2) Sin and the Johannine signs (5:14; 9:2-3.34); (3) Jesus’ sinlessness and the Johannine irony (8:46; 9:16.24.31); (4) The sinfulness of Jesus’ opponents (8:21.24.34; 9:41; 15:22-25; 19:10-12); and (5) Sin and the Paraclete (16:8-9). Analyzing the First Epistle of John, first the rhetorical structure of the entire text will be discussed. Subsequently, four passages will be analyzed in detail as they deal explicitly with the reality of sin: 1:7–2:12; 3:4-10; 4:8-10; 5:15-18.
