Item Description...
Written from a distinctively Pentecostal perspective and In keeping with the ethos and spirituality of the Pentecostal tradition, to which at least 400 million Christians belong, the writers explore how their scholarship might be contextualized within their own local church body and strengthened by the dynamic interaction between the Holy Spirit, the body of Christ, and the Word of God. The series is conceived of as part of the ministry of the body of Christ, for the glory of God. The structure of the commentaries reflects the dialogical way in which the tradition tends to approach the biblical text. Each volume begins with a series of questions designed to identify corporate and individual issues illuminated in the biblical book. An introduction proper then discloses the need, process, purpose, time, and place of composition, and a detailed discussion of the genre and structure of the book forms the basis of organization for the exposition that follows. This commentary on the Johannine Epistles, by a leading Pentecostal scholar and editor of the commentary series, provides a running exposition on the text, extended comments on texts of special significance for Pentecostals, and acknowledges and interacts with major options in interpreting individual passages. It also provides periodic opportunities for reflection upon and personal response to the biblical text.

Great Insight, Great Commentary  Oct 5, 2005
John Christopher Thomas is a professor at the Church of God Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee. He is not only a great scholar, but a great person as well. I was his student and I know him as Chris.
I have read quite a few commentaries on the Epistles of John, but Chris Thomas for me offered unique insight. He basically sees 1 John as a supplement to the Gospel of John that corrects any misunderstandings that the community had concerning what was said in the Gospel. One thing Thomas does very well is stay consistent with this methodology. Whereas, many commentaries spend much time speculating about the opponents that John takes on as being Gnostics or antinomians, Thomas does not allow these speculations to influence much in his interpretation of the text. The commentary is written in an easy to read format, but is very scholarly at the same time. This commentary series has a reflection and response sections that causes the reader to interact with what he or she has read in the text.
Chris uses a Chiastic structure that looks like this for 1 John
A Prologue: Eternal life 1:1-1:4
B Making Him a Liar (Walking) 1:8-2:2
C New Commandment (Love) 2:3-2:17
D Antichrists 2:18-2:27
E Confidence (Do Not Sin) 2:28-3:10
F Love One Another 3:11-3:17
E1 Confidence (Keep the Commands) 3:18-3:23
D1 Antichrists 4:1-4:6
C1 God's Love and Ours 4:7-5:5
B1 Making Him a Liar (Testimony) 5:6-5:12
A1 Concluding Remarks: Eternal Life 5:13-5:21

Chris shows how the Epistle works into the central message of love one another, and then works back out again. I would recommend this commentary to everyone. It is excellent scholarship with great insight for personal application. Looking forward to his next commentary.
