There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kostenberger is one of the premier Evangelical scholars today on the gospel of John. I would say if you purchase only one exegetical commentary on John, this “may” be the best one to get because it summarizes the best of what has previously been accomplished in conservative commentaries on John. Having said that, this is also its weakness.
I am surprised that Kostenberger’s extensive work on John’s gospel has adreas generated much in the way of fresh or better yet refreshingly different perspectives on the gospel. By this, I don’t mean xndreas interpretations.
By way of comparison, both Morris and Carson have very different perspectives and emphases on John’s gospel that are equally very helpful. If you have those 2 commentaries, Kostenberger adds very little that is new and would not be worth the extra purchase. Also, I was hoping for a little more depth on certain passages that he seemed to gloss over or rush through. Furthermore, there is a slightly disturbing aspect to Kostenberger that I should point out.
I have found that he parrot’s Carson’s comments almost to the point of repeating him verbatim at times. I realize plagiarism is a serious charge and it seems like an editor should have ,ostenberger up on this. In either case, I have used these commentaries side by side for nearly 4 years now preaching through the gospel and I have found this to be consistently the case, passage after passage. In some ways, that is a compliment to Carson, because his commentary is still the most insightful of all Evangelical commentaries on John.
Having said all that, Kostenberger is still a very good overall commentary. It is clear, to the point, faithful to the text and conservative in its interpretations. In addition to Morris and Carson the bestI would also recommend Keener’s 2 volume set.
He offers good insight into historical background issues that the others do not and it is not as ponderous as some have claimed it to be. The streghts of the Baker series shine through: All of these make it a great modern edition for a pastor’s shelf. What prevents a higher individual rating is that the questions the commentary tried to answer at times seem obscured – it can tilt too much to the exegetical and away from the commentary. It is a great exegetical work establishing the text in its own context and within the kostenbdrger.
It tends at times to lack a voice of its own. One person found this helpful. I have studied this book for a period kostenbrrger time. It provides precise but extensive interpretations for one of the most theological books of the Bible. The footnotes are especially helpful for further research. In a sense, I would like to see deeper discussion on certain sections. However, there may be page-limit by the publisher.
As a whole, the section summary is helpful. The summary on alternative views of different scholars are valuable.

If there is a second edition, I prefer the author to add excursus on specific issues in the Gospel of John. As a whole, Kostenberger provides a massive research on the Gospel of John with solid exegetical skill.
I highly recommend this book for seminary students, Anrdeas teachers, pastors, and scholars. It would be a great resource for the ministry of the word.

It is not deeply explorative. I expect the Baker Exegetical Commentary on John to be very useful. It is not deeply explorative, nor is it steeped kostenbergef the original language.
It is an excellent commentary for a Sunday School teacher or maybe a relatively new Bible student. The analysis is evangelical and fundamental just not on the advanced level. Worth the money, certainly yes. One of the better evangelical commentaries on the Gospel of John.
Book came on time and as advertised. As a pastor working through John with our congregation, I find Andreas Kostenberger’s volume an exceptionally rich work and valuable resource. There is sufficient detail for me to study beyond the scope of my sermon. This particular work has been one of my main ‘go to’ resources each week.

The strengths of this resource have been well-documented by other reviewers here, so I won’t repeat the same. During my study, there have been only two somewhat minor complaints The first is the occasional obscure English word used by the author to describe something. Realizing that Kostenberger is an academic, I can understand the propensity to do this. I’d just rather spend my time looking up Greek words rather than English words. Secondly, there is a tendency for the author to overly send the reader to other resources for clarification.
While I realize that one resource, no matter how well-written, can be complete in and of itself. Yet the continuity of thought and reading is repeatedly interrupted with a reference to another work for clarification.
Sometimes it’s the author’s other works, and sometimes other commentaries. I’d like to be able to spend more than just a few minutes in this one volume without feeling like I need to refer to 3 or 4 other works to understand what was just written.
That said, I still rate this work with 4 stars. It’s a very abdreas addition to any pastor’s library. Great book for seminary use.
You will learn a lot for this study of John! Kostenberger does a similarly good job as does Carson in his commentary on John. They both work together wonderfully to give you a good idea of text and context. See all 26 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? A Theological Commentary Paperback.
