John, Eerdmans Classic Biblical Commentaries

Originally published in 1948, this now-classic study by Merrill Tenney treats the Gospel of John as a literary unit and provides a straightforward analysis of the text. Tenney first outlines the structure of the Gospel, then offers a careful exposition of John’s text according to six major periods of Christ’s life, and finally presents a topical analysis of the Gospel. 

Not a critical commentary but, rather, a well-organized guidebook complemented by helpful charts and diagrams, Tenney’s John: The Gospel of Belief, reissued in this new format, will continue helping pastors, teachers, students, and other Bible readers grasp the aim and major themes of John.

Merrill C. Tenney

(d.1985) He was for many years Dean of the Graduate School and Professor of Bible and Theology at Wheaton College in Illinois.
