The publisher notes that in this commentary on John’s Gospel, a respected Scripture expositor makes clear the flow of the text, engages a small but representative part of the massive secondary literature on John, shows how the Fourth Gospel contributes to biblical and systematic theology, and offers a consistent exposition of John as an evangelistic Gospel. The comprehensive introduction treats such matters as the authenticity, authorship, purpose, and structure of the Gospel.
As with all volumes in the Pillar series, Carson’s commentary on John makes clear the flow and meaning of the text. Using secondary scholarship judiciously, Carson skillfully links exegesis of the text with critical issues in biblical and systematic theology. Throughout, Carson remains focused on John’s gospel message and underscores that commitment at every turn.
