Hailed as perhaps “the best commentary on any book of the Bible by an evangelical in recent decades” by Christianity Today when it was first published in 1971, Leon Morris’ Gospel According to John has become one of the enduring standard commentaries on John’s Gospel.
Recognizing the central importance of the Fourth Gospel in any series on the New Testament, Morris devoted more than 10 years to preparing this volume. Written with considerable acumen and a thorough knowledge of the previous scholarly work on the Johannine text, The Gospel According to John is one of the largest and most comprehensive commentaries ever to come out of the evangelical community.
This revised edition includes significant modifications and additions made in the light of more recent writings on John’s Gospel. While maintaining substantially the same stance as in his original work, Morris here references important secondary sources and studies that have appeared over the last two decades. The commentary is now also based on the New International Version.

- In-depth discussion of textual and critical matters
- Introduction to the authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology of John
Praise for the Print Edition
Preachers will find Morris’ exegetical hints helpful inasmuch as they will lead to greater accuracy in expounding the text. The text of the exposition can be read with profit by the average layperson. In the footnotes students of the Word will find the most amazing and delightful array of material. It is a pleasure to recommend this perceptive and valuable treatment.
—Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
Scholarly yet eminently readable and useful to anyone who is studying the Fourth Gospel seriously.
A masterpiece of scholarship and readability.
Certainly this is the best extended treatment of the Fourth Gospel.
