Untitled Document [] Befriending the Beloved Disciple. New York; London: Continuum, 2001. Reinhartz adopts four different reading strategies to deal with the anti-Jewish statements that the BD puts in Jesus' mouth. She comes at it as a compliant reader, a resistant reader, a sympathetic reader and an engaged reader.

Befriending the beloved disciple : a Jewish … "This beautifully written and, at times, very personal study is a delight to read. Reinhartz brings both the text and the Beloved Disciple vividly to life (often in ways which Christian readers will find uncomfortable), and the book will prove essential reading for anyone desiring to deepen his or her relationship with both the Beloved Disciple and his gospel."
