Gorman’s “Notes” on the Fourth Gospel

I recently discovered that Mike Gorman was the author of the Gospel of John study notes for the Wesley Study Bible (the study Bible I primarily use for personal reading and for classroom use). Wonderful notes! Also, recently, on his blog, he posted a series of “theses” on GJ that make up the outline for his final lecture in his seminary course on Johannine Literature. I thoroughly enjoyed reading these points – he capably summarizes the best of the consensus views on critical and pastoral matters related to this text.

Currently, in preparation for my Spring course on GJ, I am reading through Gail O’Day’s NIB commentary on John, and I would say it captures precisely the kind of reading of John that Mike endorses. [Have any of you read O’Day’s commentary? What do you think?]
