Details

Why is the Johannine literature—Gospel of John, 1–3 John, and Revelation—so different from the other books in the New Testament? What does the style of these books tell us about Jesus and his message to the church? Dr. Ben Witherington III—one the world’s top evangelical scholars—walks through one-third of the New Testament and covers several genres so you will encounter these familiar books with fresh eyes. He examines these books not only as a group, but also individually with an emphasis on the social and historical context of each one.

Dr. Witherington packed the last three decades of his research on Johannine literature into this course, designed specifically for Mobile Ed. Read the Johannine literature as you never have before—through the lens of Jewish wisdom literature—and deepen your understanding of God’s Word.
