Item description for The Letters of John and Jude (The Daily Study Bible Series. -- Rev. ed) by William Barclay & John C. L. Gibson...
Overview THE LETTERS OF JOHN AND JUDE The four letters in this volume all deal with heretical teachings within the early church. Dr. Barclay describes the various forms in which Gnosticism appeared in I John, pointing out that the notions that the material world and the human body are evil still infect the thinking of some Christians. II and III John are warnings against wandering preachers who taught false doctrines, and against individuals within the church who repudiated the writer's authority. Jude is a strong indictment of immoral persons (antinomians) who had insinuated themselves into the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Letters of John and Jude (The Daily Study Bible Series. -- Rev. ed)?
A good layman's tool for good Bible teaching Dec 29, 2007
I have always liked William Barclay's "The Daily Bible Study Series". It has a good balance of information. It does not appear to me to be swayed to any one point of view. It is easy for the lay person to read and use without having to have a degree in theology. I use it along with other commentaries to balance what I am learning. As it says in the book, it is used world wide, has been translated into several languages and is used by lay persons as well as the Pastor. I do have several others in my collection, but this time I wanted a hard cover so it would stand the test of time and lots of use.
One of a Great Series Aug 23, 2006
I own this whole set of 17 Barclay Daily Study Bibles and use them more than anything else in my rather extensive library. We also have a set in our church library and they are the books checked out more than any others. If you want a good, interesting, easy to read and understand resource on any of the books of the New Testament, I highly recommend any of this series.
