How I feel studying the Fourth Gospel

It must be with more than his usual trepidation that the exegete picks his way over this particularly dangerous spot of the mined terrain of the Fourth Gospel; the casualties have been heavy here, and there is much uncertainty…1

I’m preparing my phd proposal so I am neck deep in the Gospel of John… for it to be such a curious and dangerous Gospel, there sure are a lot of writings available about it.
