In this commentary Kanagaraj examines how John projects the church as God's "new covenant community", which is characterised by two virtues: love and obedience. Impossible to exhibit under the old covenant based on Moses' law, these qualities became possible by the initiative grace and faithfulness of God revealed in Jesus and demonstrated by the power of the Spirit. God's new community is an inclusive and progressive community because its witness to Jesus in a world that hates and persecutes it has the power to bring in all people so that they may become one flock under one shepherd. Kanagaraj argues that the idea of founding and nurturing a new community was in God's heart even before the time of creation and not just at the time of incarnation.

About the Author:

Jey J. Kanagaraj is Professor of New Testament who served a number of years at the Union Biblical Seminary, Pune, India, and who was the Principal of Bethel Bible Institute near Salem, India. He is theauthor of ‘“Mysticism” in the Gospel of John: An Inquiry into its Background’ (1998), and of another commentary on John’s Gospel written to the Indian context (2005). In addition, he has edited two books and published numerous articles.

Review:

This is not yet another commentary on the Gospel of John; rather it comes from an experienced teacher-scholar who has spent many years in studying its contexts and text and in seeking to make this Gospel understandable to informed students as well as to any interested lay reader. [...] Every interested person will find this book beneficial and edifying. Therefore, I recommend it warmly. (Daniel Jeyaraj, Liverpool Hope University Theological Book Review, Vol. 25, No.2, 2013)
