O'Donnell, Douglas Sean
John is known as 'the disciple whom Jesus loved'. He was under our Saviour's teaching and care for three years. He leaned against Christ's chest at the last supper and witnessed the crucifixion. Who better then to write about the love of Jesus than the one who had such first-hand experience of it? In these three letters, John is passing on the impact of these experiences to people he loves, tenderly encouraging them to see past their failings and focus on the promises available in Christ.
John Hannah opens up the letters of John to show the simple message of freedom from guilt contained within.
"Hannah carefully explains the text and skillfully applies its message to our contemporary world. If you want to see afresh the beauty of Christ and grow in your love for him and his people, this book is for you." - Matthew Harmon, Professor of New Testament Studies at Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana
"I am delighted to recommend this commentary on the Johannine epistles. It is beloved message from the beloved disciple expounded by a beloved professor. Highly recommended." - Denny Burk, Professor of Biblical Studies, Boyce College, Louisville, Kentucky
