This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. Some commentaries are primarily linguistic, others are mostly theological, and some are mainly homiletical. This one is basically explanatory, or expository. It is not linguistically technical but deals with linguistics when that seems helpful to proper interpretation. It is not theologically expansive but focuses on the major doctrines in each text and how they relate to the whole of Scripture. It is not primarily homiletical, although each unit of thought is generally treated as one chapter, with a clear outline and logical flow of thought. Most truths are illustrated and applied with other Scripture.
John 12–21 completes The MacArthur New Testament Commentary's coverage of this important book of the New Testament. This is a verse-by-verse and phrase-by-phrase treatment where the cultural and theological contexts of each passage are brought to bear on the interpretation of the text. Where relevant, the Old Testament is used to explain the passage, and controversy is never avoided. The fact that the new believer is often directed to study the gospel of John, and the mature believer never forsakes its study, gives this book special value.
