    Today s book is part of a series that I think many pastors and students of the Bible will find useful It is the Big Greek Idea series, and this volume is John s Letters.First, let s take a look at some of the overall series features the long term plan here calls for the whole New Testament to be covered in differing volumes, and there are certain features that are intended as the definitive approach of the Big Greek Idea series First, these are Greek based works Most traditional English B Today s book is part of a series that I think many pastors and students of the Bible will find useful It is the Big Greek Idea series, and this volume is John s Letters.First, let s take a look at some of the overall series features the long term plan here calls for the whole New Testament to be covered in differing volumes, and there are certain features that are intended as the definitive approach of the Big Greek Idea series First, these are Greek based works Most traditional English Bible commentaries are English based, with any work in the Greek used to explain the text, either correcting the chosen translation or supporting it, or amplifying it Here, however, the primary text is the Nestle Aland 28th edition Greek text Obviously, if it takes longer to produce the series than it takes for NA29 to come out, later volumes may use NA29 That may sound intimidating, but the text is given in a format similar to an interlinear as well as being presented in a clausal outline Now, I know, we re supposed to be so great at Greek that an interlinear arrangement which shows a phrase in Greek, with a basic translation of that same phrase in English just underneath it is unnecessary, but many people serving in ministry struggle with the vocabulary that left after the last final in seminary This format enables the reader to clearly see the relationship between the Greek base text and the English translation And, if you like, you can always re do the translation yourself The use of clause based outlines is also a beneficial arrangement Rather than being sentence driven or verse driven, the text is broken down into units which are then shown in clauses Each unit is headed by its Big Greek Idea, which is essentially the unifying concept in that section The unit is then also discussed in terms of the overview of the Greek structure This notes any key repeated terms or important clauses Further syntax explanations follow the clausal outline, with each clause broken down as well as significant portions of the syntax highlighted in nuggets.Overall, the concept works well The reader is given a mixture of seeing the basic Greek structure as well as seeing how the clauses and structure carry meaning in a larger unit Do you need to know Greek to use this It does help, but the clearly stated audience is people who are not great with Greek, and that is where I fit This is perfect for me uses and reinforces what I know and enables me to do better As to the specific volume John s Letters was an interesting introductory choice There isdepth developed than I expected in 2 and 3 John, and the work through of 1 John, while not earth shattering, was solid in explaining the text I think this series will be useful for ministers and Greek students.I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for the review

    John s Letters An Exegetical Guide for Preaching and Teaching Big Greek Idea Series by Herbert W Bateman IV and Aaron C Peer is an interesting new volume and beginning of a series in the interpretation of the New Testament The series was created with the concern that most people don t have a solid, working, understanding of biblical Greek This series will be a help to the pastor who has some knowledge of biblical Greek, as well as the overloaded professor, and the seminarian 14 John s Letters An Exegetical Guide for Preaching and Teaching Big Greek Idea Series by Herbert W Bateman IV and Aaron C Peer is an interesting new volume and beginning of a series in the interpretation of the New Testament The series was created with the concern that most people don t have a solid, working, understanding of biblical Greek This series will be a help to the pastor who has some knowledge of biblical Greek, as well as the overloaded professor, and the seminarian 14 Although the authors provide their own translation of the text at the rear of the text, the book is designed to highlight the big Greek idea of each section of text and put the tools out there for these persons to use to interpret, explain, and preach the text It is not for the average lay person some knowledge of biblical Greek is necessary The text opens with a table of contents, charts and sidebars index, list of abbreviations used, and then a length introduction which explains how to read the text and the authors basing it on the use of the clausal outline of the text Then the text begins in earnest with an introduction to each letter before it, followed by the big Greek idea, structural overview, outline, and clausal outline for each section of text Interspersed are syntactical, lexical, semantical, theological, text critical and grammatical nuggets to help in understanding the translation and interpretation of the text The volume ends with a bibliography and a nugget index If you are looking for a commentary that gives your denominational interpretation, this is not it If you are looking for a commentary that helps you work through the Greek to understand the bid ideas and, thereby, the text, you will find this very useful I am interested to see future volumes I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review This review appears on my blog, .com, Kregel, and Goodreads.com

    Herbert Bateman and Aaron Peer s John s Letters is one of the volumes to Kregel s Big Greek Idea Series On the whole, John s Letters is a masterful contribution to the wealth of resources available for pastors and teachers of the Greek New Testament Text Part commentary, part interlinear text, and part syntactical analysis, John s Letters is able to keep the big idea of each pericope in front of its users, while helping to demonstrate all the ways in which the various components of that Herbert Bateman and Aaron Peer s John s Letters is one of the volumes to Kregel s Big Greek Idea Series On the whole, John s Letters is a masterful contribution to the wealth of resources available for pastors and teachers of the Greek New Testament Text Part commentary, part interlinear text, and part syntactical analysis, John s Letters is able to keep the big idea of each pericope in front of its users, while helping to demonstrate all the ways in which the various components of that pericope work together Here, readers will learn how to see the forest while also appreciating each of the trees that make up that forest.The introduction , while a bit lengthy for the purpose of a resource text for pastors, helps to plant the three letters within the wider context of Johannine Literature studies in the New Testament guild Students without a grasp of the grammar of the New Testament Koine Greek, though, will be lost from the start From there, readers will find each of the three letters broken down into smaller thought blocks The interlinear breaks the text apart into clauses and arranges them based on their relationship to the other clauses in the passage a kind of sentence diagramming And students who took New Testament Greek in college will remember diagramming some of these same sentences early on in their students That s because of all the texts of the New Testament the Johannine correspondence is perhaps the most accessible for beginning students So if you re part of that bunch if your Greek studies have just begun or if you re beginning again John s Letters is a perfect guide.The next time you preach or teach from these letters, this book is one of those to have on your personal library shelves as a resource.____________________I received a free copy of this text from the publisher in exchange for my honest review here
