Product Description

In this volume, Andres Lincoln's introduction is a series of crystal clear essays giving balanced approachesto key Johannine issues. For example, he gives a lucid analysis of the place of Jesus in the narrative of this ancient biography; he brings common sense and clarity to the issue of authorship and the identify of the Beloved disciple; there is a penetrating analysis of the Christology of the Fourth Gospel that touches on much that is theologically significant in the gospel. Also, Lincoln deals forthrightly and sensitively with the Gospel's frequent apparent hostility to the Jews. Readers along the whole theological spectrum will benefit from themasterly and realistic discussion of historicity and truth. Relying on his own translation the commentary focuses on the theological dimension of the final author's message to the particular first-century CE readers. However, never far from view are the historical and social factors that are important in any adequate explanation of this text. Also, the commentary bears the fruit of having been written over a time in which Lincoln came to be persuaded that John knew the synoptics.

    The Black's New Testament Commentary series has been fairly under the radar and hasn't gained a huge audience. This is a shame, as the volumes serve as a good intro/mid-level commentary series. It's possible that the dated covers have something to do with this, but this is just a guess.

    The Gospel of John has been very popular in the scholarly world, there have been numerous new works and revisions of old work in recent history and there seems to be no end in sight. Lincoln does a fine job in his treatment of the text for the general audience. Two things that I especially like about this work - he provides his own translation of the Gospel and by and large he is working with the text and not commentaries on the text. Each pericope is handled at an appropriate length - I feel as though Lincoln discusses each passage in a thorough manner while not getting bogged down by idiosyncrasies related to grammar and syntax. Overall it is highly readable and flows quite nicely. For those without knowledge of Greek who want a clear commentary on the final version of the text, this would certainly suffice.
