Subversive Wisdom makes the case that in the Gospel of John, Jesus walks and talks like Lady Wisdom of the Hebrew Scriptures. In John, Jesus is Wisdom incarnate, speaking and demonstrating the subversive wisdom of the way of the cross; he is a sort of trickster, confusing and frustrating his enemies, acting in ways counter to convention, and driving out the ruler of this world through the upside-down logic that comes from above.

Subversive Wisdom explores literary themes in the Gospel of John such as Jesus as Torah, the heavenly perspective of the narrator and Jesus, political terminology used throughout the Gospel, and the New Exodus.
