Der Johannesevangelist platziert die Begegnung zwischen dem ,,Zweifler" Thomas und dem Auferstandenen (Joh 20,24–29) unmittelbar vor die metatextuelle Schlusssequenz seines Buches (Joh 20,30–31) und weist so dem Zweifel und seiner Überwindung beträchtliche Aufmerksamkeit zu. Vor dem Hintergrund der verzweigten Auslegungsgeschichte der Thomasepisode geht der Aufsatz der Frage nach, ob Thomas gemäß der Erzähllogik des impliziten Autors tatsächlich ,,seinen Finger in die Wunde tat". Er kommt gegen die überwältigende Mehrheit der gegenwärtigen Johannesexegese, aber im Einklang mit der spätantiken und mittelalterlichen Auslegung zu einer positiven Antwort. Davon ausgehend werden grundlegende Einsichten zur johanneischen Theologie formuliert.

More about this publication?
  • The journal is concerned with early Christianity as a historical phenomenon. Thereby, Early Christianity aims to overcome certain limitations which have hindered the development of the discipline, including the concept of the "New Testament" itself. The journal, then, is taken to cover not only the first Christian century but also the second.

    This journal will not, however, give any special prominence to reception-history or to the second century. The total phenomenon called "early Christianity" comprises a kaleidoscopic range of individual phenomena, including communal structures, social norms, discursive practices, points of conflict, material remains, and much else – far more than just the production and reception of texts. This journal will strive to reflect this multiplicity of contexts, in the expectation of new light on our subject-matter from a variety of angles.
