Craig Keener's monumental and authoritative commentary on John's gospel, containing over 20,000 ancient extra-biblical references, making it the most thorough and thoroughly documented John commentary in print, is now available in paperback.
Kenner, arguably the leading expert in the socio-historical study of the New Testament, brings all of his research and acumen to bear in this irreplaceable commentary. Essential for research, this commentary is both an exhaustive resource, as well as an excellent starting place for younger students who wish to become acquainted with the gospel, and studies on it. Highly recommended.
Keener's commentary explores the Jewish and Greco-Roman settings of John more deeply than previous works, paying special attention to social-historical and rhetorical features of the Gospel. It cites about 4,000 different secondary sources and uses over 20,000 references from ancient literature.
