How does the phrase contribute? What role does it play in the portrayal of Jesus as the dominant character of the Gospel in Johannine irony? There is a greater interaction between different forms of saying than has generally been acknowledged, and Ball draws out a number of implications of his findings for other areas of Johannine study.
