Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament: John


Baker Academic 2011

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Gospel of John, full of striking language and symbolism, is familiar to many as a sourcebook of favorite quotations. It is far more difficult to read this complex and subtle Gospel as a coherent whole on its own terms. In this volume, Jo-Ann A. Bryant, an expert on John’s dramatic rhetoric, helps students and pastors do just that.

Praise for the Print Edition

This marvelous commentary is packed with substantive information and fresh insights. Brant draws on current literary approaches and an array of useful sources from antiquity to illumine John’s Gospel. She likewise makes the complexities of the Greek text intelligible for English readers. . . . As with other volumes in the Paideia series, this one is masterfully designed to provide optimum access for readers.

Craig S. Keener, professor of New Testament, Palmer Seminary

Brant skillfully mines the Greco-Roman literary, rhetorical, and social world of the Fourth Gospel and writes with brevity that moves the reader briskly along from one fresh insight to the next. The result is paideia—a wonderfully formative experience!

R. Alan Culpepper, dean, McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University
