About the Authors
  • This 2007 commentary differs from most others in that it does not attempt to repeat all the critical materials which can be found in the larger, major series. Rather it brings to the interpretation of John, materials more literary and rhetorical in nature. It presents full paragraphs on passages, key terms and major motifs. One might say that the 'big picture' is more important here than exacting detail. Readers will be invited into the gospel by noting its typical literary patterns (chiasms, topic statements and development, patterns of double-meaning words), rhetorical commonplaces and discourse (e.g., 'the 'noble' shepherd'; forensic trials: accusations, defense, verdict and sentence). In particular this commentary brings readers into the cultural world of the gospel by presenting materials such as honor and shame, challenge and riposte, gossip, secrecy, and sectarian character of the group. This is a very accessible reading of John.

    • Full attention to the literary craft of the author
    • Informative and in-depth interpretation by means of 'Closer Look' sections
    • Accessible for students, clergy, and curious laity alike

    Reviews & endorsements

    'One particularly gratifying feature of this commentary is its ability to offer good connections with many decades of established and respected Johannine scholarship, while at the same time making effective recourse to disciplines that have been increasingly brought to bear within biblical studies over more recent years.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament
