John 1-4 A Critical and Exegetical Commentary by John F. McHugh

John 1-4 A Critical and Exegetical Commentary

Part of the International Critical Commentary Series


John 1-4 A Critical and Exegetical Commentary by John F. McHugh

An important new addition to the International Critical Commentary series, John 1-4 brings together all the relevant aids to exegesis, enabling scholars obtain complete knowledge and understanding of this Old Testament book.For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary has had a special place amongst works on the Bible. This new volume on John brings together all the relevant aids to exegesis - linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary and theological - to enable the scholar to have a complete knowledge and understanding of this old testament book. McHugh incorporates new evidence available in the field and applies new methods of studies. No uniform theological or critical approach to the text is taken.


McHugh is very attentive to grammatical issues, as to be expected of the ICC. His discussion of text-critical matters is also impressive. In terms of the history of interpretation, he surveys broadly on any interpretive crux, and includes pre-critical perspectives. Perhaps most impressive is his theological engagement with the text, no doubt influenced by the ministerial work he undertook in his retirement...will serve as a handy resource for research on John's Gospel. Theological Book Review, Vol 21, 2009
