Recently, Karen Jobes, NT professor at Wheaton, launched a new commentary on 1, 2, 3 John (ZECNT) that fills a crucial gap in current Johannine scholarship. She explains two important ways her work will benefit your own study of John’s letters:
- Her approach: Jobes’ commentary approach is unique because she wrote it “to bridge the distance between academic biblical studies and the pastor, student, or lay person who wants to get more deeply into the issues raised by the letters of John.”
- Her hermeneutic: “I very deliberately interpret the letters in light of the gospel of John,” Jobes explains. “I don’t assume they mean and say the same things, but I think they are mutually interpreting works that need to be considered together.”
As with other ZECNT commentaries, Jobes’ volume will arm you with solid exegesis and help you theologically apply these important letters to help people live in light of the gospel.
