Description

John's Gospel is a sublime masterpiece that has occupied theologians and mystics for centuries. It has been described as 'a book in which a child may paddle but an elephant can swim deep.'

At the same time, it is still a story - the story of Jesus' deeds and words, his signs and teaching, and how these led to his arrest, death and resurrection.

This commentary follows the flow of John's narrative, showing how it is patterned and devised, to help the reader grow in understanding and also in faith.

About the series:

The People's Bible Commentary covers the whole Bible with an approach that presents scholarly insights in straightforward terms, aiming to instruct the head but also to warm the heart, and pointing to how the truths received can be applied personally. It is a valuable resource for all who regularly preach scripture, for those wanting to venture deeper into personal Bible reading, and for study group leaders.
