Publisher's Description

Accessible, comprehensive, and up-to-date, Interpreting the Gospel and Letters of John is an ideal text for students new to the discipline of biblical studies. Sherri Brown and Francis J. Moloney present a broad overview of the story of Christianity arising out of its Jewish foundations and proceed to guide readers expertly through the contents of the Gospel and Letters of John.

Maintaining that Johannine literature is best understood against the background of the Old Testament covenant metaphor, Brown and Moloney focus on the central role of covenant in the narrative of John's Gospel and highlight the Evangelist's use of fulfillment language. Helpful sidebars, maps, questions for review, and further-reading lists are placed throughout the text, making this volume well suited for classroom use.

Editorial Reviews

William Loader
— Murdoch University, Western Australia
"Combining the skills of the teacher and the excellence of sound scholarship, Sherri Brown and Francis Moloney have produced a fine resource to guide students on their journey into the wisdom and world of John. Brown and Moloney’s big-picture approach embraces Israel’s story, Rome’s world, and the church’s beginnings as a framework for a careful reading of the biblical texts. This is an introduction filled with innovation and insight, a delight for learner and teacher alike."

Ruben Zimmermann
— Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz, Germany
"In this exceptional textbook Brown and Moloney accomplish a herculean task. They offer not only a full commentary and close reading of the Johannine Literature (Gospel and Letters!) but also combine this fine work with introductions to foundational methodologies for biblical interpretation, the history of Israel and early Christianity, and the Bible as Sacred Scripture. In this way, they masterfully open up the world in, behind, and in front of the text. Concluding each chapter with key terms, questions for review, and a bibliography for further reading, the authors have provided an outstanding tool for the classroom and beyond."
