I've always found the Gospel of John fascinating but difficult to understand. Barclay's daily Bible studies are all outstanding, even if he has weak view of the miraculous.

Barclay writes clearly and helps one understand the mind set of those for whom the Gospel was written, . for a non-Jewish culture. I highly recommend this Bible study. In every instance Barclay cuts to the quick of the matter, giving a good historical context for Scripture, as well as very pointed exegetical insights.

Excellent study guide for the Gospel of John. I've always found the Gospel of John fascinating but difficult to understand. Sometimes I read only a section a day; sometimes I cover a whole chapter. I always come away with a deepened appreciation for the complex, powerful book, the Bible.

Read the Book of John online. This summary of the Gospel of John provides information about the title, author(s), date of writing, chronology, theme, theology, outline, a brief overview, and the chapters of the Gospel of John. The author is the apostle John, "the disciple whom Jesus loved" (13:23 ; 19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20,24). He was prominent in the early church but is not mentioned by name in this Gospel - which would be natural if he wrote it, but hard to explain otherwise.

The more we study John, the more wealth arises out of it,'so says William .

The more we study John, the more wealth arises out of it,'so says William Barclay about the Fourth Gospel. In this volume, Dr. Barclay completes his intensive study begun in The Gospel of John, Volume 1 (that covers chapters 1 through 7) and helps give the reader a sharpened perception of the emphases of this Gospel. Written during a time when heresies abounded, the Gospel of John clarifies both the humanity and deity of Jesus Christ.

He who follows me will not walk in darkness, but he will have the light of life. The Gospel of John is, for many Christian people, the most precious book of the New Testament. Markedly different from the other gospels, John avoids the pithy phrases that identify the others. John's thorough and winning, yet confrontational, style is part of the reason that this gospel is considered to be so important within the New Testament.

The more we study John, the more wealth arises out of it," says William Barclay about the Fourth Gospel. In this volume, the second of two on the book of John, Barclay helps give the reader a sharpened perception of the emphases of this Gospel.

In Vol. 2 of the Gospel of John, the great Scottish Bible interpreter William Barclay follows the formula of the Daily Study Bible Series by first giving the text for the day's study in his own translation, followed by two or three pages of commentary.

Best commentary ever written on Book of John. John 1:1-14 is where "logos" is explained & is the best researched ever. Barclay explains the "Word" aka "logos" in both Greek and Hebrew history. William Barclay wrote this many years ago, but it reads as understandable as anything written since. I have the entire Barclay set of N.T. commentaries. Gave complete sets to family & friends for gifts at Christmas or other memorable occasions.

Excellent study guide for the Gospel of John. Chock full of information about the language and imagery of the fourth Gospel. I've always found the Gospel of John fascinating but difficult to understand. Barclay writes clearly and helps one understand the mind set of those for whom the Gospel was written, i.e., for a non-Jewish culture. I highly recommend this Bible study.
Slowly writer
William Barclay is an expert at commentary on the Bible. He explains with clarity and cuts through all the red tape that most commentary discusses. He is a scholar and is knowledgeable about Greek, Hebrew, and other languages of Jesus' time. I have read most of his interpretations and would recommend all of them to anyone who is looking to increase their knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Many of Barclay's contemporaries were critical of his layman's commentaries, but he wrote and published them anyway, and thank heaven he did. What a blessing for serious Bible students who are not ordained clergy! If you want good, well researched Bible instruction that will enhance your faith life and bring a better understanding especially of Jesus and the Gospels, these books are essential. Order them, use them, learn from them and allow the blessings to continue.

This book is old but good. It is a part of the Daily Bible Study series; and William Barclay is easy to read but thorough in his exposition of main line Christian doctrine. It is a good commentary suitable for Sunday school study outside of the class room. The book came as described and within a reasonable time. I hope to use this seller again as the book was used.

Barclay's daily Bible studies are all outstanding, even if he has weak view of the miraculous. He tends to look for a natural explanation for some of the miracles, yet he does not miss the very thing that Jesus was demonstrating with that miracle. In every instance Barclay cuts to the quick of the matter, giving a good historical context for Scripture, as well as very pointed exegetical insights. I like these studies because of the things they make me think about. Sometimes I read only a section a day; sometimes I cover a whole chapter. I always come away with a deepened appreciation for the complex, powerful book, the Bible. In reading through these studies on John I have been very touched by the humanity of the disciple band. "One of the lovliest things in the Fourth Gospel, is that John, the old fisherlman turned evangelist,found all the wealth of the Christ in the memory of a fisherman's story (John 6, Christ coming to the disciples in the boat on the windy Sea of Galalee.) Volume 2 of course covers the Crucifiction. From John 18, covering Peter's denial of Christ, Barclay says,"The forgiving love of Jesus is so great that he sees our real personality, not in our faithlessness, but in our loyalty; not in our defeat by sin, but in our reaching after goodness, even when we are defeated." Time after time, Barclay points to the living reality of a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The "New" daily Bible studies by Barclay have been updated to more modern English; not necessary in my opinion. We lose a lot when we stop reading old books as they were written.

Over the past year, I have really gotten into reading the Bible. However, I am no smarter today than I was 20 years ago, so I still have a hard time interpreting the intended meaning. This book is PERFECT. He explains not only the simple concepts, but the very deep ones in a way that even I can understand. I just bought the second volume too...John's gospel was always my favorite, and this book has helped me understand why!!!
This is the updated edition of the previous Bible Studies written by William Barclay who is Scottish. William Barclay was a Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism. Therefore, the content of this Bible Study is based on Protestant Theology. This is important to know for the Roman Catholics who are looking for a Concordance that has Roman Catholic theology. When this book was revises changes were made to make it easier to read. This book contains explanations about the passages Therefore, I think of it as a Concordance rather than a Bible Study.
