Product Description

The degree to which the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series fulfills its stated goal, "to help the non-technical reader to understand his Bible better" has been shown uniformly excellent throughout the series. Despite being non-technical commentaries, Tyndale Commentaries are nevertheless exegetical and discuss the major issues that scholars are concerned with in ordinary language.

John's affection for the recipients of his letter is clear: "They are his 'dear children', his "dear friends"," as John Stott points out. He continues, "[John] longs to protect them from both error and evil, and to see them firmly established in faith, love and holiness. He has no new doctrine for them. On the contrary, he appeals to them to remember what they already know, have, and are..Whenever innovators trouble the church, and ridicule whatever is old or traditional, we need to hear and heed John's exhortation, to continue in what we have learnt and received, and to let it continue is us."

Publisher's Description

"John evidently loves the people committed to his care," says John Stott in the preface to this commentary on 1, 2 and 3 John. "They are his 'dear children,' his 'dear friends.' He longs to protect them from both error and evil and to see them firmly established in faith, love and holiness. He has no new doctrine for them. On the contrary, he appeals to them to remember what they already know, have and are. He warns them against deviating from this and urges them to remain loyal to it. Whenever innovators trouble the church, and ridicule whatever is old or traditional, we need to hear and heed John's exhortation, to continue in what we have learned and received, and to let it continue in us." 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. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world." -- Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary

"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." -- Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes." -- D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries." -- Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary

"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable." -- Christianity Today
