In I, II, III John: A Handbook on the Greek Text, Martin Culy provides a basic lexical, analytical, and syntactical analysis of the Greek text of 1, 2, and 3 John—information often presumed by technical commentaries and omitted by popular ones. But more than just an analytic key, I, II, III John reflects the latest advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. The volume also contains recommendations for further reading and an up-to-date bibliography.

This volume is perfect for students, pastors, scholars, or laity seeking a deeper understanding of the Greek biblical text. What’s more, with Logos, every word is essentially a link! Scripture references are linked directly to the Bibles in your library—both the original language texts and English translations. Double-clicking any word automatically opens your lexicons to the relevant entry, making words instantly accessible. With Logos, you can quickly move from the table of contents to your desired content and search entire volumes and collections by topic, title, or Scripture reference.

Top Highlights

“According to Louw and Nida (24.14), θεάομαι differs from ὁράω (used above) in that it carries the nuance of ‘continuity and attention, often with the implication that what is observed is something unusual.’” (Page 4)

“The voice should probably be viewed as a true middle, indicating that the subject is ‘the center of emphasis, the receiver of sensory perception’” (Page 4)

“The resumptive relative clause that follows (1:3) strongly suggests that verse 2 is parenthetical” (Page 5)

“In the Fourth Gospel, the fact that ‘Jesus is not actually named until the end of the Prologue (1:17), he does not come onto the stage until 1:29, and he does not speak until 1:38 … helps build both interest and tension’ (Culy 2010, 96). The same is true here. The writer’s coyness in not directly naming the incarnate Jesus as the topic draws the reader into his discourse that follows.” (Pages 1–2)

“‘the command forms are central … [and] the book moves from mitigated (almost disguised) commands to overt commands at the structures which we call the peaks of the book’” (Page xix)
