There is unanimity among Johannine scholars that one distinctive characteristic of the Fourth Gospel is the fact that the evangelist presents Jesus as caught in long-drawn our juridical confrontations between himself and the Jews. The author examines the two Sabbath conflict narratives and takes a fresh look at the Johannine juridical metaphor and sheds new light on the meaning of the narratives.
