Mimesis is a fundamental and pervasive human concept, but has attracted little
attention from Johannine scholarship. This is unsurprising, since Johannine ethics,
of which mimesis is a part, has only recently become a fruitful area of research.
Bennema contends that scholars have not yet identified the centre of Johannine
ethics, admittedly due to the fact that mimesis is not immediately evident in the
Johannine text because the usual terminology for mimesis is missing.

This volume is the first organized study on the concept of mimesis in the Johannine
literature. The aim of the study is to establish that mimesis is a genuine Johannine
concept, to explain its particulars and to show that mimesis is integral to Johannine
ethics. Bennema argues that Johannine mimesis is a cognitive, creative process that
shapes the believer's identity and behaviour within the context of the divine family.
Besides being instrumental in people's moral transformation, mimesis is also a vital
mechanism for mediating the divine reality to people.
