A PHILOSOPHICAL AND HISTORICAL INTEPRETATION OF THE CONCEPT LOGOS IN JOHN 1:1 FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF ORALITY AND LITERACY

Gavin P Hendricks

Abstract


 

The article will address the philosophical and historical interpretive interest of the concept logos in the Johannine narrative from the perspective of orality and literacy research in the New Testament. The Logos in the Gospel of John serves as a forceful intellectual and ideological stimulus in the context of the Johannine community. The article will employ a multi-disciplinary approach in reading the concept logos logo-centrically (orally) rather than graphocentrically (textcentrically) from the per-spective of orality-literacy which unfolds a new dimension for oral and written hermeneutics in the light of the reading of Logos in Jn 1:1.
