The goal of fallen man is self-deification, to be as God (Gen. 3:5), whereas the goal of redeemed man is to be God's covenant man. Christ's perfect humanity is our standard, not his deity. We cannot have Christ as our God if we will not have him as our true man, as our federal head. In the first Adam, we are born into sin and death; in the last Adam, we are born into justice or righteousness and life. Jesus is the true bread of life, come down from heaven. His flesh, his true humanity, is our bread of life; this he gives for the life of the world. We are in him no longer the sinful and death-bound sons of fallen Adam, but the just and life-bound people of the last Adam. Christ gives us his flesh, his glorious humanity, so that we are remade into people of righteousness and eternal life.

To feed on Christ is to know him as the true man and our only hope for life. We become members of him and serve his purpose, to bring every area of life and thought into captivity to him. In this commentary, renowned theologian Rousas John Rushdoony maps out the Gospel of John starting from the obvious parallel to the book of Genesis ("In the beginning was the Word") and takes the reader through the glorious conclusion of Christ's death and resurrection.

He earned degrees from the University of California, received theological training at the Pacific School of Religion, and received an honorary Doctorate from Valley Christian University for his book The Philosophy of the Christian Curriculum.

Rushdoony was an ordained minister and served as pastor at two California churches. He served for almost nine years as a missionary to the Shoshone and Paiute Indians in a remote area of Nevada. It was during this time as a missionary that Rushdoony began writing. The Institutes of Biblical Law and Commentary on the Pentateuch are just a few of the titles that Rushdoony has penned.

He served as the editor of The Chalcedon Report, the monthly magazine of the Chalcedon Foundation.
