The volume contains contributions by P. Hoffmann (Q 6,39.40 and Luke); R. Hoppe (Lk 5,1-11); B.J. Koet - W.E.S. North (Lk 10,38-42 and Jn 11,1-12,8); A. Denaux (Lk 24,29); T. Nicklas (Jn 4,43-54); F. Tolmie (Jn 13,21-30); J.A. Du Rand (Jn 13,31-14,31); G.J. Steyn (Jesus as Lord in Jn); M. Theobald (Augustine on Lk 5,1-11 and Jn 21,1-14); M.J.J. Menken (1 Jn 3,12); J.-M.
