page 450 note 1 On the question of patterns of Christology see Fuller, R. H., The Foundations of Mew Testament Christology (London: Lutterworth, 1965) pp. 243–248.
page 450 note 2 cf. Hamerton-Kelly, R. G., Pre-exislence, Wisdom, and the Son of Man (Cambridge: CUP 1973) pp. 224–228 following Dodd. Also see below.
page 451 note 1 See Bultmann, R., Theology of the New Testament (London: SCM, 1955) II, pp. 42–44, but also Käsemann, E., The Testament of Jesus (London: SCM, 1968), pp. 12, 17.
page 453 note 1 Käsemann, , Testament, pp. 26, 70; cf. 66, 73. Käsemann finds here a naïve or unreflected docetism, but this is linked with his view that the gospel was edited by a redactor subsequently. But on the question of composition see Kümmel, W. G., Introduction to the New Testament (London: SCM, rev. ed. 1975), pp. 306–317.
page 454 note 1 Higgins, A. J. B., Jesus and the Son of Man (London: Lutterworth, 1964), pp. 163–164. But the word play was also possible in Greek: Meeks, W. A., ‘The Man from heaven in Johannine Sectarianism’, J.B.L. 91 (1972), p. 62.
page 454 note 2 So Bultmann, , Theology II, pp. 53, 57, also in The Gospel of John (Oxford: Blackwell, 1971), pp. 580–586.
page 455 note 1 For the view that the explicit future eschatology is due to the redactor see Bultmann, , Theology II, pp. 37–39 and Käsemann, , Testament, p. 14, cf. pp. 72–3. Against these see Brown, R. E., The Gospel according to John (London: Chapman, 1971), pp. cxvi–cxxi and Kümmel, , Introduction (1975), pp. 209–210.
page 457 note 1 On this see Barrett, C. K., The Gospel according to St. John (London: SPCK, 1956), pp. 146–147.
page 457 note 2 ‘Son of Man’ is the correct reading at 9.35. On the question of preference see Martyn, J. L., History and Theology in the Fourth Gospel (New York: Harper, 1968), pp. 120–127.

page 464 note 1 On this question see Bultmann, John, 225 n. 3. On the ‘I am’ sayings in general see Brown, John, I 533–8, Conzelmann, H., An Outline of the Theology of the New Testament (London: SCM, 1969) 349–352.
