The poem retains the meaning of conventional versions of the Johannine story of Jesus, while offering suitable texts for musical settings of the entire gospel or any passage of particular interest. The text does not include any of the false and sinful condemnations of Jews which have historically contributed to the practice of eliminationist anti-semitism.
