1, 2 & 3 John: Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC)

This product is not currently available to purchase.

1, 2 & 3 John

In 1, 2 & 3 John, Gary Derickson explores how John communicates his pastoral concerns in his three epistles. Interacting with the most recent scholarship, Derickson focuses on John’s message and concerns rather than following the common theory of a Johannine school and secessionist polemic. He distinguishes pastoral and polemical elements within John’s message and recognizes John’s own assessment of his readers’ faith. By encouraging his readers to express God’s love through active involvement in one another’s lives, John shows that he is concerned not with how we possess eternal life but with how we express it as we relate to God.

Praise for 1, 2 & 3 John

Dr. Gary Derickson’s volume in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary on 1–3 John is first rate analysis and synthesis of one of the most important collections of writings in the New Testament. Derickson provides evidence and evaluation of all exegetical and theological options while interacting with the latest scholarly literature. The layout and structure of the commentary is unique and extremely helpful to both pastor and student. This is an important and essential work.

—Fred Clay, PhD, Associate Professor of Theology, Phoenix Seminary

Gary Derickson’s commentary on the Letters of John sets a very high standard and is notable for its thoroughness, careful exegesis, in-depth knowledge of the scholarly literature, and warm-hearted commitment to the gospel of Christ. It deserves to be warmly received and widely used.

—Colin Kruse, PhD, Senior Lecturer in New Testament, Melbourne School of Theology

    Bottom-line: I recommend this commentary heartily, though I strenuously disagree with the Zane Hodges influence in Derickson's approach to 1 John. See my full review here:

    For busy pastors on a tight budget, EEC provides a single volume resource with scholarship that is more current than the WBC, at a lower price, and with the addition of significant content useful for both preaching and teaching the three epistles of John. For teaching, at both the college and seminary level, I would chose the EEC for John’s Epistles over WBC vol. 51 as a course textbook. The one potential downside to EEC is that because it is purely a digital publication, there are no page numbers, which could be a problem for more traditional professors. However, in a digital age, this should not be a major hurdle to more progressive academic institutions. See the Full Review By J.R. Miller at http://www.morethancake.org/archives/4545
