Overview

Warned that mature scholars who began full-scale John commentaries have usually died before they finished them, Keener (New Testament, Eastern Seminary) decided to start young, and did indeed outlive his endeavor. He admits that the Fourth Gospel is a text, and so provides attention to literary and similar issues, but says his main contribution to the scholarship is the social data he presents and his overall awareness of the social and historical context. He analyzes the book section by section. The two volumes are paged and indexed together. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
