The Gospel of John is a genuine literary masterpiece. In the first instance it is simple, accessible, clear, and easily applicable. In the second instance, it is enigmatic in its wording, its oddly timed historical references, and its controversial interpretation of events with an obvious theological agenda, namely, to convince you to believe and follow Jesus Christ.
In John [NIVAC] seasoned Johannine scholar Gary Burge unpacks the Gospel of John revealing a message that is as powerful, compelling, and transforming today as it was when John wrote the book. Indeed, Burge tends to follow John's lead by telling John's story after him while always pointing towards the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ.
About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.
Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.
Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
