The Gospel of John has become so familiar and seems so simple that it is easy to overlook its special challenges, says the author of this helpful guide.

Interpreting the Gospel of John presents an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan for exegeting the Fourth Gospel. It leads beginners through the maze of academic discussion concerning origins, authorship, and interpretation. Textual, cultural, and literary considerations are explained, and leading commentaries on the Gospel of John are rated according to scholarship and reliability. The final section of the volume focuses on preaching and teaching from John.

Interpreting the Gospel of John is part of the Guides to New Testament Exegesis series, covering various genres of New Testament literature.
