Interpreting the Gospel of John presents and easy–to–follow, step–by–step plan for exegeting the fourth Gospel. It leads beginners through a maze of academic discussion concerning origins, authorship, and interpretation. Recent assessments are noted in an attempt to form an evangelical consensus—a “new look.” Textual, cultural, and literary considerations are explained. Leading commentaries on the Gospel of John are rated according to scholarship and reliability.
One section of this practical volume focuses on preaching and teaching from the Gospel of John. Burge notes that even the best study techniques are only tools for mining spiritual truths.
Interpreting the Gospel of John is part of Baker’s Guides to New Testament Exegesis series, covering the various genres of New Testament literature.
