Publisher's Summary

Gnosticism was a wide-ranging religious movement of the first millennium CE - with earlier antecedents and later flourishings - whose adherents sought salvation through knowledge and personal religious experience. Gnostic writings offer striking perspectives on both early Christian and non-Christian thought.

In this addition to the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, History Academy scholars interpret the Gospel of John in its historical and literary setting as well as in light of the Church's doctrinal, liturgical, and spiritual tradition.

They unpack the wisdom of the Fourth Gospel for the intellectual and spiritual transformation of its readers and connect the Gospel with a range of witnesses throughout the whole history of Catholicism.

It cites about 4,000 different secondary sources and uses over 20,000 references from ancient literature.

The auotors assumes that the John who authored the book is someone very close to Jesus and, therefore, that the gospel is a testimony to events that actually happened in the life of Jesus.
"The Gospel according to Saint John is to many people the most precious book in the Bible," in order to help uncover the tremendous wealth of this Gospel, History Academy has provided his own unique translation of the text, a detailed commentary, and a comprehensive introduction.
This new edition will help bring the book in which "many people find themselves closer to God and to Jesus Christ than in any other book in the world" closer to home and freshly relevant for today's readers/listeners.

This volume, like each in the series, is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry.

Whether used for devotions, preaching, or teaching, this authoritative and thought-provoking series will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons.
The Gospel of John, is a powerful source of instruction and comfort to many millions of God's people down through the ages of church history.

During Jesus’ lifetime, no one understood His mission, but by narrating a few carefully chosen episodes in Jesus’ life, the Apostle John unfolds the truth. Throughout the centuries, John’s portrait of Jesus has drawn men and women into a trusting, intimate relationship with the Son of God. As you study John, you can begin deciding for yourself who Jesus is.

History Academy Bible studies will help you grow in Christlikeness through a life-changing encounter with God’s Word. Filled with a wealth of ideas for going deeper so you can return to this study again and again.

It is an invitation to the reader to put aside their traditional understanding of the Gospel of John and to replace it with another one more faithful to the original text perspective. The Jesus that will emerge will provoke to rethink most of what you knew about this gospel.

“Our vision is often more abstracted by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge.”

Such exploration of variety of important contexts allows us to recover for our generation the true riches of this marvelous gospel.

This accessible, engaging work explores the major theological dimensions of John's Gospel, including God, the world and its people, Jesus, the crucifixion and resurrection, the Spirit, faith, and discipleship.

The Gospel of John is filled with profound truths and rich spiritual stories. Stories of Christ’s miracles that inspire His followers; stories of a death that redeems the lost; and stories of a resurrection that provides us with hope for eternal glory.
