Details

In this volume, Gary Derickson explores how John communicates his pastoral concerns in his three epistles. Interacting with the most recent scholarship, Derickson focuses on John’s message and concerns rather than following the common theory of a Johannine school and secessionist polemic. He distinguishes pastoral and polemical elements within John’s message and recognizes John’s own assessment of his readers’ faith. By encouraging his readers to express God’s love through being actively involved in each other’s lives, John shows that he is not concerned with how we possess eternal life but with how we express it as we relate to God.

The 44-volume Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series incorporates the latest in biblical scholarship and is written from an evangelical perspective. It combines historical, literary, and theological explanations with ideas for applying the Bible to everyday life.
