Merrill Tenney, one of the original team members for the translation of the New American Standard Bible, gives us a brilliant guidebook to the study of the Gospel of John. Tenney's thoughtful analysis of the text includes linguistics studies, sentence diagrams, detailed outlines, historical accounts, maps, and charts of the chronology and geography of John's Gospel. A unique volume, it delves deeply into the structure of John, also providing verse-by-verse exegesis that will be useful to pastors, teachers, biblical scholars, and all wanting a holistic understanding of the book of John.
Tenney's John: The Gospel of Belief is a fantastic tool for the further study of John. Easily searchable in Logos, cross-references are also available with a quick mouse-over. This timeless volume is an integral part of your digital library.
John: The Gospel of Belief was originally a part of the New International Commentary Series on the Old and New Testament under the series' original name: The New London Commentary on the New Testament.
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.
