Now in paperback, this unique commentary on Titus, 1-2 Timothy, and 1-3 John probes each letter's social setting and the rhetorical strategies of the author. Ben Witherington shares how several of these "letters" are much better understood as homilies and also provides special sections to bridge the gap between the text and the everyday life of the reader.
Marianne Meye Thompson provides an introductory discussion and passage-by-passage commentary of 1-3 John. With the help of the scholarly background material, Thompson allows the text to speak to a contemporary church still caught in controversy. Now in paper.
The three letters of John were addressed to first-century Christians, but their teaching seems especially relevant today. David Jackman focuses on the paired themes of truth and love, mind and heart, World and Spirit--offering John's message of encouragement to a new generation.
Offering spiritual and intellectual sustenance to contemporary readers, this commentary edited by Gerald Bray highlights what the early church fathers found in James, the Peters, John and Jude--sound counsel for the faithful in the cosmic struggle between good and evil.
In this magisterial synthesis, Paul A. Rainbow presents the most complete account of the theology of the Johannine corpus available today. Both critical and comprehensive, this volume includes all the books of the New Testament ascribed to John: the Gospel, the three epistles and the book of Revelation.
