Believers Church Bible Commentary: John


Herald Press 2013

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The gospel of John’s “from above” orientation transforms our human “from below” assumptions and habits. It draws us into union with God and into unity with one another. It communicates who Jesus is, in both intimate and profound dimensions. The book of John shapes Christian identity, invigorates worship, and implants eternal hope. “John’s gospel defies description,” marvels Willard Swartley. “It soars like the eagle, links heaven and earth, and both comforts and convicts the human heart. Its Christology is rich, with a plethora of titles for Jesus-even the divine eternal I am.”

Though commentaries on John abound, this volume follows the unique Believers Church Bible Commentary Series format, providing sections on the text in biblical context and the text in the life of the church. According to Swartley, this format serves well the interests of seminary students and pastors especially.

In the Logos edition, this BCBC commentary is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
