Description

John is known as 'the disciple whom Jesus loved'. He was under our Saviour's teaching and care for three years. He leaned against Christ's chest at the last supper and witnessed the crucifixion. Who better then to write about the love of Jesus than the one who had such first-hand experience of it? In these three letters, John is passing on the impact of these experiences to people he loves, tenderly encouraging them to see past their failings and focus on the promises available in Christ.
John Hannah opens up the letters of John to show the simple message of freedom from guilt contained within.

Reviews

I am delighted to recommend this commentary on the Johannine epistles. It is beloved message from the beloved disciple expounded by a beloved professor. Highly recommended.

Denny Burk, Professor of Biblical Studies, Boyce College, Louisville, Kentucky


Hannah carefully explains the text and skillfully applies its message to our contemporary world. If you want to see afresh the beauty of Christ and grow in your love for him and his people, this book is for you.

Matthew Harmon, Professor of New Testament Studies at Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana


The book works systematically through John's letters. The exposition is punctuated by a series of parentheses - 40 in all - many of which are like mini applicatory sermons. This illustrates the author's paramount concern for relevance to the Christian life. It is clear that the book was written in a prayerful spirit; frequently the author tells us of his prayer for himself and his readers in the light of his exposition. Overall, the book stimulates comfort and hope. This is apt and chimes in with the apostle's own intention in writing. As the author says in the epilogue, there is 'a majestic sweetness' to John's letters 'that leaves the reader amazed and humbled'. What flows through the book, making it a profitable read, is the author's obvious desire that we should all respond with prayerful amazement and humble prayer.

Jonathan Bayes, Thirsk


As with all commentaries in the Focus on the Bible series, the introductory matters are largely kept to a minimum and while there is no verse by verse exposition, the section by section approach is still a worthwhile technique. This commentary is also up-to-date and is applicable not only to the laymen but to the pastor as well. That is why I recommend this text to any laymen as a wonderful devotional and to the pastor as a great introduction to the epistles with a lot of application helpful for sermon preparation.
