The Gospel of John, Volume 2: John 5-8 (Paperback)
"If we allow God to use us, we become important spiritually," says James Montgomery Boice. "For the Lord Jesus Christ himself is seen in the conduct of his followers." This second volume on the Gospel of John shows how Jesus dealt with the hostility that began to arise among the religious leaders in regard to various practices of faith and how he didn't allow their hostility to deter him from his path. In so doing, Christ provided the ultimate example for living in the Father's name. Other topics discussed include "Is God Silent?" (5:17-23) "A Matter of Life or Death" (5:28-30) "Who's in Charge?" (6:10-15) "Murmurs of Disbelief" (6:41-47) "None like Jesus" (7:45-52) "The Last Enemy" (8:51). This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text. Integrating thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live.
