The authors of this two-volume New Beacon Bible Commentary have presented succinctly the best that contemporary New Testament scholarship has to offer on this Gospel. Exploring genre, literary devices, authorship, and other features, this commentary delves deeply into the development, meaning, and application of this unique book. Volume 1 encompasses John 1-12, the prologue and the Book of Signs. The New Beacon Bible Commentary is an engaging, indispensable reference tool to aid individuals in every walk of life in the study and meditation of God's Word.
