Product Description

In this commentary on the Gospel of John, New Testament scholar Dr. Andreas Kostenberger presents comprehensive and up-to-date analysis through his detailed study, a thorough introduction to John and the topics relevant to its interpretation, and verse-by-verse exposition followed by technical additional notes. In the commentary proper, he introduces and translates each exegetical unit. Kostenberger interacts with the best recent scholarship and presents his conclusions in an accessible manner. When dealing with particularly problematic sections, he considers the full range of suggested interpretations drawn from a broad spectrum of commentators before offering his own understanding.

Publisher's Description

Andreas J. Köstenberger's new commentary on the Gospel of John draws on extensive research and engages the best of contemporary scholarship, yet provides a readable study that will be beneficial to students, pastors, and scholars.

After considering the historical context of the letter as well as its relation to other New Testament writings, Köstenberger turns to his exegetical work. An introduction to each exegetical unit is provided along with the author's own translation of the Greek text. In the course of his verse-by-verse comments, Köstenberger incorporates references to other ancient writings that help explain the book's theological, cultural, and social context. Where appropriate, he draws upon the work of other commentators and provides extensive notes for further reading and research.

    I've read the commentary through John four and am not sure if I will continue using it. I am reading Carson (PNT), Morris (NICNT) and Morris' "Reflections on the Gospel of John" (Great if you can get it)as well as a few others. My experience with this particular work is that it is a summary of other authors (especially Morris and Carson). If you are looking for a compilation of other scholars, then this is a handy resource. If you are looking for fresh eyes on the text, I think you will be disappointed.

    I must admit that I was looking forward to this commentary on the strength of Kostenberger's previous scholarly output. I am mildly disappointed with the results. Although he is excellent on many points, I feel at times as if this was a rushed work, not really given the attention that the author is capable of bringing to bear on the text. I would really like to see a thorough revision in the future, perhaps when the professor's schedule is not so full. This could (and should) have been a signal contribution to an excellent series.

    A very well written commentary on this Gospel; but is not as detailed as other academic commentaries on John. Kostenberger has provided the reader with vital information; but in a concise way. He deals with most of the textual issues that are raised; but when it comes to explaining the text in details he falls short. He fails to comment on the Pericope de Adulterer (7:53-8:11) and only gives a brief summary. The exegesis is complimented with footnotes and additional notes which are very helpful. I recommend this commentary as a secondary one on the Gospel of John as there are a lot of helpful notes.
