Endorsements ()

Product Description

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.

As with all volumes published in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, John seeks to reach a broad audience with scholarly research from an evangelical perspective. Each volume in the BECNT series interacts with the best contemporary scholarship, offering up–to–date, accurate, and authoritative analysis of the Greek text through rigorous exegesis and exposition. Central themes are developed throughout, and each exegetical unit is related to the overall message of the biblical book. Pastors and seminarians especially appreciate the combination of broad overview and in–depth analysis found in BECNT volumes.
