Item description for John: Spiritual Theologian: The Jesus of John by Op Wilfrid J. Harrington...
This is the final volume in a series of pastoral commentaries on the gospel which seek to make available the best of scriptural scholarship to the non-specialist. The series will be of particular interest to preachers, teachers and those coming to scripture study for the first time. The gospels, at once historical and theological, proclaim Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ, the definitive revelation of God. Mark, Matthew and Luke do so along similar lines, but John is distinctly different. While in Matthew and Luke there is a tendency to stress what one might call the otherworldliness of Jesus, in John he seems something of a sojourner from another world.
