As the author states in the foreword, this commentary seeks above all to explain the text of the Gospel of John to those who have the privilege and responsibility of expounding the Word of God to others, of preaching and of lead Bible study meetings. The author has endeavored to write this commentary so that the cultivated Christian can also use this work in his personal study of the Bible.
The author tried to:
- focus on the movement of John's thought
- mention a representative part of the literature devoted to John
- show the contribution of this gospel to biblical theology and systematic theology
- offer a coherent presentation of the Gospel as a gospel intended for evangelization.
