This paper will seek to read the prologue of the Fourth Gospel and its possible pre-Gospel forms in the light of Jewish eschatological expectations of its day and of the Fourth Gospel as a whole. It will do so also in the light of similar motifs appropriated elsewhere among Jewish followers of Jesus. It will address questions such as the extent to which protological use of Wisdom mythology influenced eschatology and how belief that Wisdom manifested itself in Torah and in persons as its agents provided precedent for believers' claims about Jesus in John.
