Specially written from a Charismatic and Pentecostal viewpoint, this commentary focuses on the distinctive and detailed treatment of the Holy Spirit in John's Gospel. Jon Huntziger explores the implications of the Johannine teaching that, through the Spirit, believers will do "greater works" than those of Jesus. 350 pages, from Nelson.
John's Gospel is unique in designating the Holy Spirit as "Comforter" or "Helper" (14:16). As part of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit extends the ministry of Jesus to the end of this age.

All have written in a way that can be understood by the average reader.
