Reviews

"Both the specialist and the less informed student will find here a careful and faithful reading that traces the actual contours of the narrative while not ignoring historical considerations, literary context, patristic traditions, and contemporary scholarly debate. Professor Thompson's main concern is to 'illumine the witness' of the evangelist and so to train the lens thoroughly on that witness's 'understanding of Jesus--who he was, what he did, and what that means.' This she does, with grace and erudition."
--Edith M. Humphrey, William F. Orr Professor of New Testament, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary


"In this exceptional commentary, Thompson wears her deep scholarship lightly. We are given a clear and fresh vision of John's portrayal of Jesus and its enduring significance for today. Here is real insight."
--Walter Moberly, Professor of Theology and Biblical Interpretation, Durham University


"Thompson has written a richly rewarding theological commentary that reads the Fourth Gospel first and foremost as a story of Jesus. No one is better qualified today to write such a commentary, and Thompson's work does not disappoint. Both pastor and scholar will be greatly rewarded by giving this work their attention."
--Nijay K. Gupta, George Fox Evangelical Seminary


"Without neglecting the cultural contexts of this most 'spiritual' Gospel, Thompson demonstrates the depth of the Gospel's scriptural roots and, in conversation with interpreters ancient and modern, the breadth and height of its theological claims. This expert engagement with the Gospel narrative is a much-needed contribution to its contemporary interpretation. It will now be my go-to commentary on John."
--Michael J. Gorman, Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology, St. Mary's Seminary & University
