In this Volume

As the beloved disciple, John brings a unique perspective on the life and ministry of Christ. In simple majesty, he confesses the divinity and mission of Christ in some of the most profound passage of the scriptures. In this original translation and commentary, Rev. Dr. William C. Weinrich tackles the Gospel line by line with a firmly Christological hermeneutic. He notes especially the emphasis John gives to the eternity of Christ, addressing this in the omission of a nativity narrative in favor John’s famous “In the beginning was the Word” [1:1]

Features

  • Arguments for Baptism as a central theme in John
  • A focus on the sacramental implications of John’s Gospel
  • An overview of significant John commentaries from the church fathers, medieval, reformers, and modern scholars.

Essays

  • Two Statements on Participation in the Eucharist
  • Does John 6 Speak of the Eucharist?
  • The Multiplication of the Loaves as a Eucharistic Symbol

Endorsements
"I esteem Dr. William Weinrich as one of the most remarkable and trustworthy Lutheran theologians of our times. Firm rootedness in the Scriptures, rare knowledge of early church fathers, and deep understanding of the ecclesial nature of Christianity allow him to present biblical theology in the richness of its genuine form. Dr. Weinrich has a blessed gift to disclose not only the truth of our faith but also its beauty. These traits permeate his commentary on the Gospel of John. The balanced approach of an academic scholar and of a practical theologian makes this book a truly valuable resource.

The Most Reverend Janis Vanags, Archbishop of Riga, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia

“Years of distinguished service to church and world, including an extraordinary career of seminary leadership and teaching, combine with a lifetime of exceptional scholarly reflection upon the works of the apostle and evangelist St. John and the history of the church’s reception of John’s works to produce a tremendous accomplishment. Deftly crafted with masterful attention both to the subtle nuances of the Greek and to the theological breadth and the depth of the most “spiritual” of the Gospels, Dr. Weinrich’s John 1:1–7:1 is precisely the sort of seasoned exposition that those who know him best have come to expect. Weinrich is to be heartily commended for his outstanding achievement and encouraged not to keep his readers waiting for too long before theirs is the great pleasure of access to his exposition of the rest of this Gospel.”

—Dr. Bruce G. Schuchard, Professor of Exegetical Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis

“This commentary offers us an unexpectedly fresh interpretation of the first six chapters of the Gospel of St. John. We had missed the astonishing insights and profound understandings now given in this exciting exposition. Dr. Weinrich is an expert not only in New Testament exegesis but in patristics as well, allowing him to make both ancient and modern commentators fruitful for our benefit. He carefully exposes the OT background of this Gospel’s principal theme: the exaltation of Christ on the cross as the reality of the paschal new exodus which exists for us in the Sacrament of Baptism.”

Dr. Jobst Schöne, Bishop Emeritus of the Selbständige Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche (Independent Evangelical-Lutheran Church), Germany

About the series

The Concordia Commentary Series: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the Biblical text.

The series will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testament, with an original translation and meticulous grammatical analysis of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek of each text. The foremost interpretive lens centers on the unified proclamation of the person and work of Christ across every Scriptural book.

The Commentary fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture; Each passage bears witness to the confession that God has reconciled the world to Himself through the incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ His Son.

Authors expose the rich treasury of language, imagery, and thematic content of the Scripture, while supplementing their work with additional research in archaeology, history, and extrabiblical literature. Throughout, God’s Word emanates from authors careful attention and inculcates the ongoing life of the Church in Word, Sacrament, and daily confession.

Can't wait for the next volume

Reading Dr. Weinrich's vol 1 is like being in his class at Sem. It's wonderful to have a combination of thorough scholarship, Christological understanding of Scripture, and no bloody fear of telling the truth in the Commentary itself. Though the Concordia series is the best, not all volumes have all 3 qualities. I hope I live to read volume 2. These people keep my preaching honest. I know just enough to be dangerous. Thank you Dr W (To anyone who thinks this masterpiece is tedious, I can only say, "Don't tell me I have to listen to another shallow sermon!")

Love it!

As a parish pastor, I really appreciate this commentary!

Don't tell me this is going to be three volumes!

CPH, please stop your commentators from writing these monstrous volumes! 920 pages for 7 chapters of John!!! You've got to be kidding me. As a parish pastor, even when I have copious amounts of time to sit, study, and absorb good commentary on the word, there is no way I even want to read that much of one persons voice and study. And the added expense of one (or two!) unnecessary volumes, for multiple books of the Bible (!), is getting more than ridiculous. I won't be buying this volume because I refuse to buy two more of them. I'm sure the work is outstanding, but the benefits do not outweigh the costs for me.
