N.T. Wright has the wonderful gift of being able to write in a very gentle accessible way whilst getting across a lot of ideas and inspiration. This commentary is a great example of that. Littered with many illustrations from modern life he traces the key question of Jesus’ identity through the Gospel, drawing on John’s symbolism and his use of and illusion to Old Testament scripture. It is this aspect which I found most helpful having never spotted such parallels before such as between the feeding of the 5000 and Jesus walking across the water with the Exodus story with the provision of the manna and the crossing of the red sea. N.T. Wright’s formidable knowledge of the Old Testament as well as the context of the Holy Land in the First Century that makes this guide so helpful. Recommended!
