Black’s New Testament Commentary series presents a reliable and enlightening exposition of the New Testament for the modern reader. Basing their remarks on their own unique translations, authors introduce the historical, literary, and theological backgrounds to their assignments, and then lead the reader on a pericope-by-pericope exposition of the book. Each volume in the series includes the following: an insightful introduction to the important historical, literary, and theological issues; key terms and phrases from the translation highlighted in the commentary discussion; explanations of special Greek or foreign terms; references to important primary and secondary literature; and a Scripture index.

"Andrew Lincoln's work is marked by close attention to the primary text in closely reasoned conversation with the rest of Scripture and other ancient writings that throw light on 'the Spiritual Gospel.' Lincoln's creative contribution lies in his reading of John as a profound adaptation of Synoptic traditions. Bearing the erudition, theological acuity, graceful style, and mature judgment we have come to admire in its author, this commentary is an altogether welcome addition to a distinguished series."
--C. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary
"There may be many commentaries on the Fourth Gospel on the shelves of scholars, but this one will quickly earn a place open on the desk of both scholars and preachers."
--Graham H. Twelftree, Regent University
"Lincoln both draws on a wide range of Johannine scholarship and bravely forges new paths at times, respecting consensus but seeking to break new ground. . . . This work is a significant one. Although its format is aimed more for students than for scholars, the distinctive elements in its approach and the arguments advanced for them will also make this commentary important for scholarly consideration."
--Craig S. Keener, Review of Biblical Literature
Andrew T. Lincoln is Portland Professor of New Testament at Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Higher Education in England.
