Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879811129, Paperback)This Daily Bible Study Book is taken from The Daily Bible Commentary which has been acclaimed all over the world for its unique twin benefits as a daily Bible reading aid and a commentary on the Bible section by section.
We cannot recommend these book too highly. Once obtained they will remain a treasury for reference quite apart from the insight given into Scripture.
The use of these books would dispel many confused ideas people have about the different portions of the Bible.
The authors are men who have made considerable contributions to biblical scholarship. They maintain a very high level both in scholarship and in communication to the reader.

The Gospel of John was written so that those who read it might believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and find eternal life. It is different in approach from the other three gospels. In the first half John alternates seven signs (miracles) with seven sayings (lengthy teachings) backed up by seven statements Jesus makes about himself (each beginning with "I am"). In the second half John records the events of the final week of Jesus' life, which includes instruction to his disciples, his death, his resurrection, and his appearances after his resurrection. The Open Your Bible Commentary was written to encourage daily Bible study. Each reading is short, but the content is rich with careful explanation, devotional warmth, and practical relevance. Nearly 100 daily readings let you explore the Gospel of John in depth. The Open Your Bible Commentary has four great strengths: - Accessible - it's written for the average, thoughtful Christian without assuming a great deal of background, yet it is never superficial. - Digestible - it's written so you can read a section or two a day, working your way through an entire book of the Bible in days or weeks. - Dependable - it's written by an amazing group of scholars and trusted pastor-teachers. - Practical - it's a rich combination of specific application and encouragement to listen to God for guidance. The commentary on John is introduced by an overview, summary, outline, key themes, and relevance of this gospel for today.
