Additional Information

In the first volume of Raymond E. Brown’s magisterial three-volume commentary on the Gospel According to John, all of the major Johannine questions—of authorship, composition, dating, the relationship of John to the Synoptics (Mark, Matthew, and Luke)—are discussed. The important theories of modern biblical scholarship concerning John are weighed against the evidence given in the text and against prevailing biblical research. In sum, what is attempted is a synthesis of the major scholarly insights that bear on the Fourth Gospel.

The translation—as Father Brown states at the outset—strives not for any formal beauty but rather for an accurate and contemporary version: “the simple, everyday Greek of the Gospel has been rendered into the ordinary American English of today.” The result is a translation that will strike the reader with uncommon immediacy.

Father Brown also analyzes, in the appendixes, the meaning, use, and frequency of certain key words and phrases that occur in John, and examines the differences between the Johannine and Synoptic treatments of the miracle stories.
The chapters of the Gospel translated here in Volume 29 (1–12) comprise the Prologue, which opens with the famous “In the beginning was the Word,” and the Book of Signs, an account of the miracles of Jesus and of his ministry.

Professor Raymond E. Brown is at times presented by publishers as the dean" of the New Testament scholarship. It means this commentary is as work of in depth analyses of the scholar who has also written superb introductions to New testament literature, as well as classic reference books on Messiah' birth and death, also published by Anchor Yale Bible, as is the case with this volume. It is "a must literature" for biblical scholars, theologians in general, bible and theology students but also readers that are interested in a comprehensive information about the life and knowledge of the Jesus from Nazareth, developed and transposed by the early Christian circle we tend to call the johannine church. This is first of the two books that reveal all the crucial question in johannine theology and proposes the outlook of the Gospel given by professor Brown. The content of the Word, given by Jesus of Nazareth, his biography and theological and literary way of its transmission is analysed from... Read more
I don't want to say much, but was surprised no one had reviewed it yet. This is a great commentary, and as some of the older Anchor Bible Commentaries can vary in detail, Brown offers a good mix of critical notes and discussion. I would definitely recommend it.
