This commentary focuses on understanding the significance of John's letters when he wrote them and the power they still have today.
- Publisher

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable--but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.^

Helpful commentary
4 stars By Hoa, Feb 01 2017
Burge's commentary gives helpful insights to the text based on the original meaning, the interpretation, and application to the modern context. He lays out a particular reconstruction of the historical background and some of his comments rely heavily on this.
