Product Description

The Gospel of John [NICNT] is a detailed, elegantly written commentary (indicating an increased attention to the literary quality NICNT vols.) on the modern church's most revered gospel. J. Ramsey Michaels gives primary attention to the "Gospel of Belief" motif in its present form rather than to the sources or traditions that many believe lay behind it.

Michaels examines the Gospel's literary character and construction, as well as its theological significance and message for the Christian community in its own time, through the ages, and for today.

Michaels' The Gospel of John [NICNT] is unique in that it marks the culmination of 50 years of classroom teaching on the NT, and seventeen years of writing and research for this volume alone. It is excellence and commitment at a level rarely achieved in biblical exposition. Nevertheless it remains accessible, yet scholarly commentary, and is a "must" have for every pastor, scholar, and student.

Endorsements

Gordon D. Fee
-Editor, New International Commentary on the New Testament
Here is a substantial, truly original exposition of extraordinary insight and helpfulness to pastor and scholar alike, which should have a considerable life span after both the author and editor have gone to their eternal reward.

Andrew T. Lincoln
-University of Gloucestershire
This is a commentary for which it was well worth waiting. The fruit of a lifetime's engagement with John's Gospel, it manages to be both conservative and original. Above all, it does superbly what the best commentaries do--immerse readers in the text itself. Michaels takes us with him deep into this Gospel's story of Jesus, expertly probing the narrative, asking questions about it that we may not have thought of, and pointing out details, nuances, and connections we may have missed, all the while ensuring we do not avoid the text's larger, sometimes uncomfortable, truth claims. Readers will emerge invigorated, enlightened, and inspired...The excellence of Michaels' substantial and intriguing close reading makes his commentary one to which readers will return again and again for continuing stimulus in their own study of John.

Craig Keener
-Palmer Theological Seminary
A senior Johannine scholar here weaves together fresh thinking on John's Gospel with his years of engagement with the Gospel and its earlier scholarly interpreters. This new commentary is attentive to the details of the text, to structural clues, and to the cohesiveness of John's narrative as a whole; while clearly sensitive to the Greek text, it is written to be intelligible for English readers.

Rodney A. Whitacre
-Trinity School for Ministry
J. Ramsey Michaels has produced a masterful commentary, the fruit of well over half a century of careful study of John's Gospel. He draws upon a wealth of resources, ancient and modern, as he engages both the larger historical, literary, and theological dimensions of the text, as well as fine details of grammar and textual variants. His analysis is marked by many original insights that are grounded in careful attention to the text itself, and his clear, engaging style makes this commentary a page-turner.

    THE GOSPEL OF JOHN by J. Ramsay Michaels

    This is a massive work (1094 pages) on John, which replaces Leon Morris' work in The New International Commentary on the New Testament series. As I have been doing some study in the Gospel of John, I added it to my library. I must say that after using it, I am not impressed with Michaels work. While he is conservative in the approach to John, I am disappointed in the commentary. I found the following:

    *I was surprised that he acts mostly with older scholars (Bultman and Barrett); little with Carson and Keener, and with Kostenberger at all. I was expecting more. To me this dates the work before it came out.

    *He is not afraid of controversy; in fact he opens in Gospel with such with his view of the Prelude. Some of this is interesting, but does not outweigh the rest of the work.

    He downgrades the idea of John the Apostle being the author. His conclusion is we cannot know who wrote it.

    *He has some unusual interpretations. An example of a fanciful connection is found in John 19:30 where he connects Jesus laying his head and giving up the spirit to Matthew 8:20 where Jesus had no place to lay his head (page 964).

    *He seems to be brief on theological issues, and does not cover others, like John's use of the Old Testament.

    Overall, I found he did not add much to what I found in other works.

    I would not recommend this work. To me the cost benefit is not there. The cost is great and for me the benefit are little. In my humble opinion it certainly does not measure up to the work it replaces by Leon Morris. Carson, Keener, Kostenberger, and Beasley-Murray are much better choices.

    An excellent commentary on John

    This volume maintains the balance between readability and scholarship. Those who wish a more thorough Greek study should try the NIGTC entry. The author's depth and and insight into the text are excellent. While it is a large volume, it is not so because of verbosity, but from sheer volume of information.

    I love to read commentaries and this is the most readable commentary on John that I have read in a while (maybe since Morris' initial commentary in the series). The author brings you to the depths of John's thoughts and leaves you something to ponder: "the light has come into the world and permeates the darkness." Whether that darkness is found in the lives of those 2000 years ago or our darkness today.

    His writing style is easy to read and knowledge of Greek is added value but not needed to get the main idea of the text. His use of other commentaries and academic material is also good. He addresses commentaries that agree with his position as well as those who do not. He also sends you to other commentaries for bibliographies that are more extensive.

    I highly recommend this commentary for the student, pastor or someone who wants to feel the heart of John.

    It is too early for a detailed comment, but thus far I am impressed by the comments & find them instructive for preaching.
