In this volume Culy provides a basic lexical, analytical and syntactical analysis of the Greek text of 1, 2, and 3 John--information often presumed by technical commentaries and omitted by popular ones. But more than just an analytic key, I, II, III John
reflects the latest advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. The volume also contains recommendations for further reading and an up-to-date bibliography. A perfect supplement to any commentary, I, II, and III John
is as equally helpful to language students, of any level, as it is to busy clergy who use the Greek text in preparation for proclamation.
About the series:
What distinguishes the Baylor Handbooks on the Greek New Testament
from other available resources is the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Greek text of the New Testament. Each handbook provides a convenient reference tool that explains the syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, deals with text-critical questions that have a significant bearing on how the text is understood, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries, all in a succinct and accessible manner.
"This handbook is an excellent study tool, providing depth in analysis of the Greek text not often provided even in technical commentaries. In it, Culy shows his familiarity with the current state of linguistic analysis of New Testament Greek, and where appropriate, points readers to relevant secondary literature. All in all, this book is highly recommended."—Kenneth Litwak, The Covenant Quarterly
