Marianne Meye Thompson – On the Writing of a Theological Commentary on John (Gupta)

A1_JohnOn Nov 9, 2015, Archives Bookshop and Fuller Seminary hosted a celebratory evening with Dr. Marianne Meye Thompson honoring the publication of her new commentary, John: A Commentary (WJK, 2015).

Today I saw that the audio has been posted for the talk by Dr. Thompson. I loved hearing about the history of this work, and her thoughts on the art and exegesis of commentary-writing, as well as select insights on what makes John tick.

Just to give you a taste, she explains that the driving question behind her research and writing was:

“What is the witness of this gospel as we have it?”

Would that we model this disposition!

Well, the talk is full of wisdom, humor, and encouragement. Check it out

  1. I just finished hearing Joel Green’s wonderful and generous intro; he has some great words for aspiring (and current) commentators! :]
