This new third edition of William Kelly's outstanding 1898 work includes all of E.E.Whitfield's 1908 second edition notes plus revised indexes and additional appendices. What are the exact words of the original Greek text of the Gospel of John? What do they mean? What is its purpose? What is its significance for us today? William Kelly (1821-1906) examines these questions in a commentary combining scholarly exegesis and analysis with devotional intensity. Edward Elihu Whitfield's additional notes address, in an equally robust manner, theologians' criticisms of the Gospel of John itself during the ten years after Mr Kelly's book was first written. "Mr Kelly's careful expositions are outstandingly weighty in the true spiritual sense. Let any reader give careful attention to his Exposition of the Gospel of John and this point must be agreed. Here is profound and profitable exploration of Scripture, yet still leaving the awareness that there are exhaustless depths yet untapped. Such ministry gains rather than loses from its system and orderliness, which is no more nor less than that of Scripture itself. Here is real living contact with the Word of God" (Colin Curry, Scripture Truth).

He was a major figure in the nineteenth century return to basic biblical teaching usually known as the Brethren movement.
