A while back I mentioned that we had finished a year long Bible Study with the men’s breakfast group on John’s Gospel (see HERE) Over the course of the year I read a number of commentaries – and this one, by William Hendriksen I liked the most.
The enjoyable and useful thing about Hendriksen is that he stays in the text – and he aims to 1) understand the text and 2) seek application from the text. He also employs biblical theology at all times, cross referencing and referring to the whole canon.
Hendriksen’s insights are often powerful and inspiring, and even when you don’t agree with him, you can’t but help admire the thoughtful exegesis he has taken you through.
A great commentary to have on John’s Gospel.
