This commentary on John 13–21 is designed for every Believer who sits in Sunday schools or Bible studies and for their Bible teachers. Any Believer can study John’s Gospel through this commentary and answer for themselves the two basic questions: what does it mean, and what does it mean to me?
The author believes John’s Gospel is the accurate, authentic, and credible product of God the Holy Spirit and the Apostle John. John wrote a historically reliable account of that part of the public ministry of Jesus the Christ which was not revealed by the Synoptic Gospels. His message throughout is that Jesus is God the Son, the Son of God, the Christ, and most importantly, the Savior.
The commentary is thoroughly exegetical and explanatory. It is based on the author’s translation and covers necessary grammatical and theological details without being tedious or exhaustive. It takes a common-sense approach to difficult issues in the Gospel, seeing them in the light of Jesus’ historical and cultural setting. Other commentaries are compared and selectively used where profitable to the reader.
About the Author
James D. Quiggle holds Master's degrees in religion and theology and has been teaching and writing about the Bible for over forty years. He became a Christian in 1974, Mr. Quiggle believes Biblical truth has the intrinsic power to produce positive change. The mature Believer uses the Bible to make informed decisions about his or her faith. “The intent of every book I write,” he said, “is to help the reader validate the truth by checking out the facts. It is also my hope that my books will be used by local church teachers as source material for their ministries.” Mr. Quiggle's goal is to teach the Bible so that others may decide for themselves what the Bible has to say about their faith and life.
