There are other New Testament letters which are much longer and seemingly more important than the Epistles of John. Yet these three small letters are verse for verse some of the most profound writings in the entire Bible. While the vocabulary in these letters is simple, the thoughts are profound.
These three epistles have long been at the center of the gospel debate. Entire books on assurance have been written based on an extremely unfortunate misunderstanding of First John. Such books undermine assurance by wrongly pointing readers to their works, rather than Christ, for their assurance.
In this remarkable commentary the reader will find both solid exegesis and practical application. This is a commentary that is sure to equip and encourage believers until Christ returns.
Our ebook, “The Epistles of John — A Shorter Commentary” by Zane C. Hodges, is an excerpt from this full-length book. You can download the ebook for free.
Zane’s explanation of these epistles will remove any confusion you may have about them. His analysis is simple, like the text of the Epistles, yet profound in the challenges and implications to the Christian’s life. This is simply the best commentary on the Epistles of John.

Those familiar with the writings of Zane Hodges have come to expect excellent scholarship combined with unusual insight and practical relevance. Readers of this commentary on the letters of John will find these expectations fully met and more… It would be a flagrant disservice merely to recommend this commentary. No finer exposition on the Epistles of John can be found in print.
