As he meticulously examines the Fourth Gospel, Beutler pays special attention to the influence of Old Testament and Early Jewish traditions, to the overall structure of the Gospel of John, and to evidence suggesting a later stratum of contextualized "re-readings" in the composition of the Gospel. Bold, literary, and theological, this volume represents a landmark work of German biblical scholarship.
George Fox University
"Displaying notably solid judgment and lucid insight, the lifetime Johannine study of one of Europes leading New Testament scholars is now available to the English-speaking world in this clear and accessible form. By interpreting the Fourth Gospels synchronicity of tradition within a diachronicity of situation, Johannes Beutler not only illumines our understandings of Johns message for its original audiences; he also unveils its meanings helpfully for readers today. A must-read for Johns interpreters!"
University of Leuven
"An important characteristic of Johannes Beutlers commentary on John is its coherent focus on the biblical roots of Johannine theology, explicitly and implicitly opposing (potentially) anti-Jewish interpretations of John. . . . This commentary will prove to be an important companion of many who desire to enter into dialogue with the Gospel of John in research, teaching, catechesis, proclamation, and particularly preaching. We are greatly indebted to Beutler for sharing with us the ripe fruit of his more than forty years of Johannine research."
Francis J. Moloney (from the foreword)
"Everyone interested in the Gospel of Johnfrom the student to the pastor to the professional biblical scholar and theologianhas been rendered a great service by the publication of this translation. Uncomplicated, excellently documented, and written with a lightness of touch, Johannes Beutlers commentary on the Gospel of John will provide a wonderful window for all English-only readers. They can now gaze through it into the exciting world of the best of European Johannine scholarship."
