Among the Gospels, John's is unique. It has a structure with long conversations and extended debates, and much of its content is not found elsewhere. Jesus' relationship to the Father and his teaching on the Holy Spirit are given special prominence. Ultimately, faith, believing in Jesus, is at the centre- with signs highlighted to provoke faith, and stories of those who responded to Jesus as examples of faith. Colin Kruse ably shows how the Fourth Gospel weaves its themes of belief and unbelief into its rich Christology.

The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.

Editorial Reviews

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."
"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable."

    This review was written for John: Tyndale New Testament Commentary [TNTC].
    Just like were placing a beloved sports figure, replace a legendary volume in a scholarly Commentary series is no easy task. Needless to say Colin G. Kruse had his work cut out for him to replace R.V. G. Taskers commentary on the Gospel of John for the spectacular Tyndale New Testament Commentary series. R.V. G. Tasker was the standard for introductory commentaries for the Gospel of John and Kruses commentary replaces a legend with one of equal caliber.

    Kruse who has written other commentaries on Johannine books is a distinguished scholar and is no stranger to commentaries in the New Testaments, and his academic credentials shine in this studious commentary. The Tyndale New Testament commentary is a great introduction commentary for pastors and laymen alike and requires no knowledge of the Biblical Greek language. Yet this commentary is part of a growing trend of added girth in the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series. Weighing in at just under 470 pages this commentary is almost the length of a mid-range commentary. Yet the accessibility of this commentary makes it a wonderful introduction to the gospel of John. I own and have read many commentaries on the gospel of John and this new commentary is one of the greatest additions to that lineage. Furthermore this commentary shows great potential in giving phenomenal application combined with superior exegesis.

    John, begins with the typical study into the introductory matters of this book of the Bible, yet while introductions are common, is atypical for Kruse is so through with his research and interaction with recent scholarship. In a day where these matters are either glossed over to get to the exegesis of the text or are so cumbersome that they become useless, Kruse found a good balance in being thorough, communicating depth and attention to recent scholarship, without losing the message of the text.

    With reference to the commentary sections on John, Kruse, expertly navigates the text showing the original context of passage while applying it directly to the modern day reader. He also uses a pastoral tone in many of his comments yet never sacrifices his scholastic approach. The outlines that he provides are also of great use for a pastor looking to preach though the Gospel of John.

    In recommending, John, to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, with one caveat. By this I mean I recommend this work to Pastors, Bible Teachers, Bible College Students, and to a limited extent educated Laymen looking to teach a Sunday school class, there is enough scholarly weight to this work to understand a particular issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text. There are many commentaries about the Gospel of John available at this moment but, Kruse, of the TNTC series is a giant leap above the rest.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    An excellent choice for the general, non-technical reader to deepen understanding of the Gospel of John. Just what I was looking for and more!
