C. K. Barrett’s The Gospel According to St. John: An Introduction With Commentary and Notes on the Greek Text, long recognized as a major contribution to biblical and theological studies, has become the standard work in the field. His comprehensive introduction to the Gospel deals not only with questions of date and authorship, but also with its theology and its place in developing Christian thought and institutional life. This is followed by a detailed commentary that explains John’s language and provides a thorough exegesis of his text.

“That the dead referred to in this verse are not the physically dead is confirmed by the fact that they are not (like those of v. 28) said to be in the tombs; the aorist participle ἀκούσαντες suggests those who at the time of writing have been vivified by the word of Christ.” (Page 262)

“John intends that the whole of his gospel shall be read in the light of this verse. The deeds and words of Jesus are the deeds and words of God; if this be not true the book is blasphemous.” (Page 156)

“It is of fundamental importance to John that Jesus did in fact live and die and rise from the dead; but he uses the material in his gospel so that men may recognize their relation to God in Jesus, rather than to convey interesting information about him. He means to write both history and theology—theological history.” (Page 5)

“but ἐν ἐμοί shows that his primary thought was of apostate Christians.” (Page 473)

“The meaning of ἐκ τοῦ ἐμοῦ is determined by the use of ἀναγγελεῖ and by the contents of the preceding verses. It is the truth not simply of the teaching but of the mission and being of Christ which the Spirit declares to the world, as he puts into effect Christ’s judgement of the world.” (Page 490)
