This book is a wide-ranging study of Johannine exegesis in the sixteenth century, centered on the John commentary of Wolfgang Musculus (1497-1563), an influential leader of the Protestant Reformation. Farmer compares Musculus's exegesis of the Johannine miracle stories not only with that of other sixteenth-century commentators but also with ancient and medieval commentaries.

Review quote

Craig Farmer has written a fine admirable beginning guide to the thought of Musculus and a skillful example of the method known as history of exegesis....His work is careful and well-documented...Farmer's book succeeds in expanding both knowledge of the early modern history of Christian exegesis of the Gospel of John and knowledge of Musculus' place in that endeavor. * Erasmus of Rotterdam Society Yearbook *
