In The Fourth Gospel and the Scriptures, new insights from 4QXII manuscripts and the Minor Prophets Scroll help unlock the mystery of John's unique form of scriptural citation. Focusing on 19:37, Bynum argues convincingly that John's citation from Zechariah is both accurate and historically reliable. Carefully considering the biblical textual milieu of the era brings to light John's concern for fidelity to the prominent Hebrew text of his day, and for the correctness of the Septuagint form of the citation. From this analysis new light is shed on the critical role the citation plays in the Johannine Passion Narrative, and its meaning within the theological development of the Fourth Gospel.

"...eine diskussionswerdige Studie [...], die neues Licht auf die johanneische Schriftrezeption wirft." - Michael Labahn, in: Theologische Literaturzeitung 138 (2013), 6

"Overall, Bynum's study is well researched and convincingly argued. The discussion of different solutions to the problem of the textual form of both Zec 12:10 and its quote in John 19:37 encompasses a truly impressive plethora of scholarly opinions. The book is also a good example of a refined exercise in textual criticism and inner-biblical exegesis. Bynum has produced a fine and enriching study that will prove valuable to any scholar or advanced student interested in the current state of studies on the Johannine utilization of the Jewish Scriptures. The volume is recommended for research libraries."
- Adam Kubis, John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, The Biblical Annals 7/3 (2017).
