Item description for He Loved Them Until the End: Farewell Materials in the Gospel According to John by John Christopher Thomas...
In this published form of the 1997 Staley Lectures delivered at Southeastern College in Lakeland Florida, John Christopher Thomas explores the Farewell Materials in the Gospel according to John. Following a brief discussion devoted to the nature of biblical narrative, the concentric structure of this text is explored. Individual lectures are devoted to the signs of cleansing with which the Farewell Materials begin and end (the Foot washing and the Prayer of Jesus); the passages devoted to the themes of Departure, Betrayal, and Provision; teaching about the Paraclete; and those that underscore the solidarity the believers have with Jesus. The book concludes with the implications of the Farewell Materials for Pentecostal Theology and Ministry.

Great little book Jun 6, 2006
This was well worth the time and the money to purchase and read. Dr. Thomas lectured in 1997 at Southeastern College of the Assemblies of God on March 20-21 for the Staley Lectures and this book is the result of those lectures. Thomas, is in my opinion, an excellent scholar on the Johanine corpus. In this book he is interpreting chapters 13-17 of John. More broadly he scopes the entire Gospel in order to bring into context chapters 13-17. He gives a very helpful chiastic stucture of the layout of the Gospel and then offers his great insight into its intepretation. He covers foot washing, sanctification, the comforter (Holy Spirit), and Christian love and solidarity. All of this is done from a Pentecostal theologian's pespective.
I have read this book three times and recommend it for everyone. It is not highly technical, comes from an excellent scholar and is an easy read.
