“In order to understand the motive and tone of the Epistles, it is requisite to have some clear idea of the circumstances, local, moral, and intellectual, in the midst of which they were written,” states Alfred Plummer in the introduction. This volume contains Plummer’s fascinating biography of John in his last years, evoking the atmosphere and politics at work when John penned these epistles. Before giving insightful notes on the Greek texts of 1, 2, and 3 John, Plummer provides in-depth commentary for all three books.

Praise for the Series
We could not point out better handbooks for the student of the Greek.
One of the most popular and useful literary enterprises of the nineteenth century.
The value of the work as an aid to biblical study, not merely in schools, but among people of all classes who are desirous to have intelligent knowledge of the Scriptures, cannot easily be over-estimated.
The books are scholarly without being pretentious, and information is so given as to be easily understood.
