About John Eadie

John Eadie (1810–1876) was an active member of the Succession Church, an influential nineteenth century Scottish Presbyterian denomination, which was later renamed the United Presbyterian Church.

In 1835, Eadie became a minister at the Cambridge Street Church is Glasgow. In addition to his pastoral duties, Eadie became a professor of biblical literature and hermeneutics at the United Presbyterian Divinity Hall, and he received his D.D. from St. Andrews in 1850. During his industrious career at the Divinity Hall, Eadie penned the five New Testament commentaries for which he is best known. His writings contributed to the growing interest in biblical criticism and hermeneutics.
