This commentary on John helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. It shows readers how to bring the ancient message of John into a modern context, and it explains not only what the book of John meant to its original readers but also how it can speak powerfully today.
About the NIV Application Commentary Series
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable - but the job is only half done!
The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our present-day context. It explains not only what what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
