Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This volume concludes Raymond E. Brown's commentary on the Gospel of John. Continuing his study begun in Anchor Bible Volume 29, the author translates the original Greek text into today's English. which allows all readers to make sense of the Gospel. Father Brown's notes and comments sort out the major issues surrounding the writings of John -- questions of authorship, composition, date, and John's relation to the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke). He analyzes and presents the scholarly debates in a form the interested layperson can appreciate.

John chapters 13-21 comprise the Book of Glory (describing the Last Supper, the Passion, and the appearances of the Risen Jesus) and the epilogue to the Gospel. This commentary includes a special appendix on the Paraclete, in which Brown examines in detail the role of the Holy Spirit. Whether discussing John's version of miracle stories found in the other Gospels, explaining the meaning of obscure Greek words, or showing the relevance of Jesus' words and deeds, Father Brown speaks to scholars and laypeople alike. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
If these two volumes were in print, they would be the texts for the Scripture course I'm taking. Overwhelmingly, Raymond Brown is the expert on John. He pulls from decades of research and numerous sources. It appears to be a life's work. He gives a phrase by phrase commentary, verse by verse. A narrative summary ties all the ideas together. He includes notes on translation including many possible views of sense of meaning. After delving into any section the reader should go away satisfied with the answer they need. This is very detailed. Be prepared to spend lots of hours satisfying your thirst.

Kudos for Brown. This is an outstanding addition to your theological library. Brown addresses the scholarly issues and at the same time, has superb insight to the text that preaches. No, it is not the easiest to read and use, but the best seldom are.

We used R.A. Brown's Introduction to the New Testament in our seminary intro class and I've never found him the easiest to read, but I really like his commentary on John's gospel... and on the epistles. For "ugo" who says he's looking for more of an exegetical approach, I would suggest C.K. Barrett's commentary.

To read Raymond Brown is to come in contact with some of the best scholars of Scripture. After presenting various interpretations, Brown presents his own, usually in harmony with Orthodox Catholic thinking. Yet the reader is challenged to turn to other scholars for a development of their conflicting ideas. Reading Brown opens the mind.

Format: Hardcover
Brown's two volume commentary of John is 45 years-old but remains the best in the English language. Of course, there is the problem that in 1965, when Brown came out with his conservative commentary in which he asserted that the Gospel of John was written by John the son of Zebedee, J. Louis Martyn also published his revolutionary book History and Theology in the Fourth Gospel (Revised and Expanded) (NTL) (New Testament Library), which forced Brown to expand his commentary in a subsequent book The Community of the Beloved Disciple: The Life, Loves and Hates of an Individual Church in New Testament Timeswhich provides an important supplement to the commentary.
