Gospel of John: New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT)
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.

J. Ramsey Michaels assumes that the John who authored the book is someone very close to Jesus and, therefore, that the gospel is a testimony to events that actually happened in the life of Jesus. Yet Michaels does not ignore the literary character of the gospel of John or its theological contribution to the larger Christian community from its own time to the present day. Through a detailed verse-by-verse commentary, Michaels reveals how the gospel of the disciple whom Jesus loved is a unified composition, intertwined with the synoptics, yet drawing on material none of them cover.
-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.

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.

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.
