Item description for First, Second, and Third John (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching) by D. Moody Smith...
Overview The three epistles of John reach exalted heights of theology through simple language and even simpler style. Yet they're not without difficulties: many of the faith-shaping experiences John and his original readers shared in the first-century Roman world went unstated, leaving modern readers perplexed. In this careful and thoughtful commentary, Smith clears away ambiguity and obscurity to reach the epistles' full meaning.
This careful and thoughtful book unlocks the door to the theological and ethical treasures contained in the Epistles of John. It is an invitation to a journey of discovery, from the well-known and familiar to the less familiar but rewarding.
"Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching" is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

A Plea to Purchase Apr 2, 2007
The epistles of John are not as well known as some other literature in the New Testament. Sadly!! This is a great resource for the pastor who wants to provide a sermon series on the neglected Johannine epistles. This is a model commentary on 1, 2, and 3 John and may be used by the pastor in a way that fulfills the purpose and intent of the Interpretation commentary series. I recommend this book highly. D. Moody Smith has written a book on the three Johannine letters marked by clarity and interpretive acumen. I found it to be extremely helpful in preparing both Sunday School lessons and sermons on these little known letters.
