New in the Eerdmans Classic Biblical Commentaries collection. In this classic commentary on the Gospel of John, first published in 1983, F. F. Bruce leads readers through the rich and complex words of John the Evangelist with a careful verse-by-verse exposition of the Gospel’s original text, its historical context, and its ongoing relevance for the Christian life. Drawing on more than thirty years of study, Bruce introduces the volume with discussions of the Gospel’s authorship, its significance for the early church, and its message. The commentary proper is based on Bruce’s own translation of the Greek text, and the bibliography and notes point to resources for further study.
