Praise for the Print Edition

Tenney's analytic study of Christ's Deity has prepared me well by teaching me how to use the Gospel of John to point out that the seven signs are proof of Christ's Deity in action;The I am statements;the five witnesses who declared Him as The Son of God. I would recommend Tenney's book as an introductory to the Gospel of John. . . . and also as a tool to prove Christ's Deity.

“A strange phrase introduces this episode: ‘He must needs pass through Samaria.’ The word ‘must’ implies logical necessity rather than personal obligation. It is the term one would use in saying, ‘A triangle must have three sides.’” (Page 91)

“First, it was a love that could not be quenched by evil.” (Page 198)

“The first element of this lofty love was sacrifice.” (Page 229)

“It was the last and greatest of Jesus’ public miracles as recorded by John, and brought the final demonstration of His mastery of human problems and a convincing proof of His claim to be the resurrection and the life.” (Page 169)

“Third, the love of Christ transcended the barriers of social class.” (Page 198)
