Product Description

From the patristic period until today, John's Gospel has served as a major source for the church's knowledge, doctrine, and worship of the triune God. Among all New Testament documents the Fourth Gospel provides not only the most raw material for the doctrine of the Trinity, but also the most highly developed patterns of reflection on this material---particularly patterns that seek to account in some way for the distinct personhood and divinity of Father, Son and Spirit without compromising the unity of God.

While there have been recent, fine studies on aspects of John's doctrine of God, it is surprising that none summarizes and synthasizes what John has to say about God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In order to fill this gap, Kvstenberger and Swain offer a fresh examination of John's trinitarian vision.

Part One situates John's trinitarian teaching within the context of Second Temple Jewish monotheism. Part Two examines the Gospel narrative in order to trace the characterization of God as Father, Son and Spirit, followed by a brief synthesis. Part Three deals more fully with major trinitarian themes in the Fourth Gospel, including its account of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and mission. A final chapter discusses the significance of John's Gospel for the church's doctrine of the Trinity, and a brief conclusion summarizes some practical implications.

    [This is an excerpt of my full review available on my blog: http://mydigitalseminary.com/father-son-and-spirit/]

    Köstenberger has a commentary on John and a work on John's theology, but Father, Son and Spirit still has its place. For a concise work on Trinitarian studies in John from a Biblical theological approach, this is a highly recommended work. This also is a fantastic book to see the how the doctrine of the Trinity is tethered to Biblical studies. Father, Son and Spirit would serve any interested student or teacher, or even be helpful in a class environment. It is a natural addition to the already excellent New Studies in Biblical Theology series.

    //Many thanks to Christine Bradley and IVP UK for a review copy of this book in return for a fair review. All words reflect my own opinion.//
