The Gospel of John
A Verse-by-Verse Exposition
“Exactly the sort of work [written] for ordinary Christians who want to know their Bible better,” said D.A. Carson of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
John wrote his Gospel so “that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, believing, you may have life in his name.” For nearly 2,000 years the Gospel’s “straight, unequivocal words about sin and salvation somehow go home,” Bruce quotes, “and carry conviction to the most abandoned, while its direct invitation wins a response that nothing else does.”
This outstanding commentary is easy to read, informative, and intended for the general reader interested in serious Bible study. The translation used is Bruce’s own. He sets passages in their historical and cultural context, compares them with the other three Gospel accounts, and opens the meaning of the verses. The book has won such praises as “scholarly, concise, and practical”; “the best overall commentary on the Gospel of John”; and “clear-headed and consistently informative.” Walter Elwell, former professor of Bible and Theology at Wheaton College, said Professor Bruce’s commentary “draws out the rich depths of this marvelous Gospel.”
