This tried and true classroom favorite by respected New Testament scholar Gary Burge has been praised for its usefulness. The expanded second edition has been revised throughout to take account of current scholarship and introduces software tools that have become available since the original edition was published. Combining original insight with how-to guidance, this textbook helps students interpret the Gospel of John and apply it in teaching and preaching.
“This new edition of Gary Burge’s introduction to the Gospel of John is no mere reprint but a detailed updating of a standard textbook for beginning students that will provide them with information and tools for their study, all placed in the context of preparation for a preaching ministry. It has the important merits of simplicity and conciseness and in its new form will continue to be a first resource for students. I cordially commend it.” – I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen

Praise for the First Edition
“The book combines expert scholarship with skillful and attractive methods of communication. It is exactly what students of the Fourth Gospel need both to provide them with the scholarly information and to guide and stimulate their own exploration of the Gospel and the many issues it raises. A splendid contribution.” – Richard Bauckham, University of St. Andrews
