In this major new commentary on the Gospel of John, Andreas Köstenberger presents comprehensive and up-to-date analysis. His detailed study of one of the most important books in the New Testament is sure to become a standard resource for preachers, students, and scholars.
A well-respected New Testament scholar, Köstenberger begins with a thorough introduction to John and the topics relevant to its interpretation. He discusses the book's authorship, date of writing, theological emphasis, and relation to other New Testament writings.
In the commentary proper, each exegetical unit is introduced and translated by the author. A full verse-by-verse exposition is followed by additional notes of a more technical nature. Throughout the commentary, Köstenberger interacts with the best recent scholarship and presents his conclusions in an accessible manner. When dealing with particularly problematic sections, he considers the full range of suggested interpretations drawn from a broad spectrum of commentators before offering his own understanding.

"Kostenberger has quickly established himself as a competent, conservative scholar and interpreter of John who now brings his formidable skills to the task of writing a commentary. His work is an important addition to our conversations, especially on Johannine theology, and merits careful attention."
