In this commentary on John—originally published in Dutch in 1987 and translated into English a decade later—Herman Ridderbos engages the host of twentieth-century interpretations while also developing his own integral understanding of John in which the Gospel emerges as a profoundly theological work.

Beginning with a theological introduction on “the peculiar character of the Fourth Gospel,” Ridderbos uses verse-by-verse exposition to unpack John’s distinctive apostolic character, offering expert literary and homiletical exegesis of the Fourth Gospel “as the Christian church adopted it.”
“A rich resource for any preacher or student. . . . Ridderbos effectively displays the historical and conceptual coherence of the Gospel of John.”
— Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
Ridderbos’s commentary reflects balanced scholarship that endeavors to come to grips with what John was trying to say in his portrayal of Jesus. . . . A splendid example of theological analysis without postulatingredactional layers and a significant addition to works on John.”
