Thomas Nelson John, Second Edition: Word Biblical Commentary [WBC]

In this revised volume on John, Dr. Beasley-Murray firmly confronts the historical and theological concerns raised by the Fourth Gospel and brings and independent mind to the complex issues of faith and history. His main interest lies in revealing John's presentation of John's concentration on the passion and victory of the incarnate Word and as such the commentary focuses on John's primary themes, the cross, and the resurrection. A substantial supplement to the Introduction has been added in this revision to acquaint readers with recent scholarly work on John.

This commentary gave me information that I found in no other commentary. And believe me, I looked at several. I appreciate Dr. Beasley-Murray's study and writing. He gives a detailed account of the text as well as how he believes some of the problem areas may be resolved. I love the technical aspect and have had no problems with his interpretations. I trust this commentary set above all others. This particular one would be a great asset on any student of the Bible's shelf.

I have many sets of commentaries and none come close to Word Commentaries. They are technical and not an easy read, but the bounty yielded from their contents is invaluable to the expositor of the biblical text.

I own 10 of the volumes and they are great. Most of the time people who don't like them really don't know how to use them. It helps to know a bit of Greek and Hebrew, as the word studies are invaluable. The bibliographies alone are worth the price of admission, perse. NICNT/OT is right up there as well. Get whatever is on sale between the two. For a great academically and detail oriented commentary, these are awesome.

Very disappointed in this commentary. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't purchase it. You may get some use out of it but I haven't in my 6 month intense study of John.

Good but not great. Its highpoint is the exposition of the final chapters of the gospel dealing with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ Jesus.
