This study is a section-by-section commentary on the chapters of John's Gospel in which Jesus prepares his disciples for the changed relation that will prevail when he is gone.
Jesus and His Own gives attention to the literary, structural, and theological features of this Johannine text. Daniel B. Stevick argues that no place in the New Testament says more about the interior life of the church - a community that through Christ, lives in close communion with God, under the Spirit, and in tension with the world. These New Testament pages articulate the deepest realities of the church's life - realities that are essential for the church's understanding of itself.
