Overview

Commenting on First John, Martin Luther made this eloquent and true statement: "This is an outstanding Epistle. It can buoy up afflicted hearts. Furthermore, it has John's style and manner of expression, so beautifully and gently does it picture Christ to us."

Modern critical studies have often presented the Gospel and Epistles of John as the capstone of the development of theological and ethical thought within the New Testament because these writings reach exalted heights through simple language and style. But they are not without ambiguity and obscurity. Because they were written so long ago, situations familiar to the author and readers of that time may be unknown to modern people. Much of what the author and readers in the past shared went unstated in the writings.

This careful and thoughtful book unlocks the door to the theological and ethical treasures contained in the Epistle of John. It is an invitation to a journey of discovery, from the well known and familiar to the less familiar but rewarding.
