Overview

The Gift of a Lifetime Presented Verse by Verse

The discovery of a commentary written (but never published) by Dr. Roy Beaman Th.D., longtime seminary professor and New Testament scholar, brings his unique biblical insights to light. Roy Beaman combined the talents of a linguist, a New Testament scholar, and a biblical archaeologist.

His commentary on the Gospel of John was developed for almost four decades and taught repeatedly in churches and in seminary classrooms. Though the manuscript was never published, printed copies were distributed through the years. Beaman’s Commentary on the Gospel of John is the compilation of two of those manuscripts.

Edited and revised by Michael R. Spradlin, Ph.D., President Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary, this 308-page commentary on the Gospel of John will serve the scholar seeking deeper information and the believer seeking devotional insights.
