John (IVP New Testament Commentary Series) by Rodney Whitacre

419KSEW57FL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA240_SH20_OU01_This was written by my bosses former lecturer at Trinity School for Ministry in Pittsburgh. It is a good commentary. The advantage of this commentary is its size. This makes Whitacre’s comments concise and to the point, which you must NOT take to mean light. Whitacre is far from light on the text. He has great insight into the Gospel of John and often I would find things in here which were not even mentioned in Hendriksen, Keener or Kostenberger. Also his writing style is easy to read and you can sense the pastoral side of Whitacre. While Hendriksen was my favorite to use, Whitacre is the commentary I would recommend first to those who want to begin studying John.
