I liked Kostenberger as my 3 commentary on John after Carson and Morris because it seemed like he was very familiar with the works of many other commentators there were lots of citations Also, there were times in which Kostenberger would contradict both Carson and Morris who tended to take the same view a lot of times , so he was a good reality check for me to make sure I considered other interpretations If I had to recommend just one commentary on John, I might recommend Kostenberger, I liked Kostenberger as my 3 commentary on John after Carson and Morris because it seemed like he was very familiar with the works of many other commentators there were lots of citations Also, there were times in which Kostenberger would contradict both Carson and Morris who tended to take the same view a lot of times , so he was a good reality check for me to make sure I considered other interpretations If I had to recommend just one commentary on John, I might recommend Kostenberger, depending on the situation Carson is the best, but Kostenberger is simpler andsuccinct Morris would be too long and detailed for many people to handle Over the past year I ve been working my way through Kostenberger s commentary on John There are certainly many commentaries on John that one could recommend Carson, Morris, Keener However, I find Kostenberger s work to be one of my favorites I have three reasons for this First, Kostenberger writes with clarity and concision Second, while he deals with heavy theological textual issues he never misses the forest for the trees This makes the commentary very valuable for pastors and Bible Over the past year I ve been working my way through Kostenberger s commentary on John There are certainly many commentaries on John that one could recommend Carson, Morris, Keener However, I find Kostenberger s work to be one of my favorites I have three reasons for this First, Kostenberger writes with clarity and concision Second, while he deals with heavy theological textual issues he never misses the forest for the trees This makes the commentary very valuable for pastors and Bible teachers Third, Kostenberger possesses an excellent knowledge of the field of Johaninie studies and this shines forth in his commentary.If you re teaching preaching through John, I would recommend this work along with Kostenberger s excellent A Theology of John s Gospel and Letters |DOWNLOAD EPUB ♊ John ☨ Andreas J KOstenberger s new commentary on the Gospel of John draws on extensive research and engages the best of contemporary scholarship, yet provides a readable study that will be beneficial to students, pastors, and scholarsAfter considering the historical context of the letter as well as its relation to other New Testament writings, KOstenberger turns to his exegetical work An introduction to each exegetical unit is provided along with the author s own translation of the Greek text In the course of his verse by verse comments, KOstenberger incorporates references to other ancient writings that help explain the book s theological, cultural, and social context Where appropriate, he draws upon the work of other commentators and provides extensive notes for further reading and research
