This booklet presents a good contribution to the hermeneutical challenge on the center of present exegetical debate, the prestige of exegesis, addressing such questions as: Does exegesis have a theological personality? may still it have one? If it does have one, would it then lose its medical personality? therefore one arrives on the major query: how can one conceive of an exegesis that's whilst severe and theological? How can religion be the root of exegesis from the start? may religion relatively be the "Fount of Exegesis"?

(5:1), Tabernacles (7:2), the commitment (10:22-23) and Passover (11:55). Inasmuch as this scheme brings chronological layout to chapters 2-12, and inasmuch as those self same chapters additionally chronicle the approaching arrival of Jesus' 'hour' (2:4; 12:23), an overarching objective for the feasts emerges; specifically, to serve the motif of Jesus' 'hour' via marking the flow of time towards its arrival.
