Back in the 1970's ...  Apr 16, 2008
... I had the honor of taking a class in which Dr. Morris taught an overview of the Gospel of John. It was after this commentary had been published. Both hearing Dr. Morris and seeing this commentary have convinced me that although he was somewhat diminutive in stature, he was one of the scholarly giants of his generation.

If I may make a suggestion: when reading Morris' commentary, picture yourself sitting in a classroom with Dr. Morris. Then, as he "speaks", pretend you have the ability to raise your hand and ask him a question. (Had you been in his class, you would have found him remarkably cogent and very approachable.) Treat his commentary as an opportunity to, so to speak, interact with this great scholar.

To expand on my point a little, it seems to me that the point of reading a commentary is not so much to collect "all the right answers" like butterflies in a jar, as it is to have the opportunity to sit next to a gifted student (e.g. Dr. Morris) and listen to him as he tries to figure out what are the correct questions.

I don't want to suggest that reading Dr. Morris' commentary is a voyeuristic exercise. Not at all. Unlike many of our contemporaries (i.e. consistent post-Modernists), Dr. Morris apparently assumed that there is such a thing as objective truth and, through diligent study, we can know more and more about it. Yet, he seemed to have possessed a humility in his scholarship which is missing in the majority of scholars (and "poser" scholars) in every field. That may have been the reason he was such an excellent student and teacher of the Johannine literature. (Plus, he was as sharp as a tack.)
A Good Treatment of the 4th Gospel  May 19, 2007
Morris' insights into John's text are, for the most part, extremely helpful. Although there are other commentaries on John that are more comprehensive, Morris doesn't get lost in the trees but always takes you back from the trees to see the Forest.

The thing that sets Morris apart from other commentators is his often pastoral insights. He always brings back the text to Christ and his redemptive work. If you are a pastor and want great sermon material, use Morris after your own study, he will not disappoint.
Great extensive Commentary on John  Feb 13, 2007
Not only is this a great commentary that can be easily read and understood, but it's footnotes take you even deeper and enrich the commentary for those who really want a scholarly experience. This is definately a tool the serious Bible student would want in his or her own library. This is one volume in a set of New Testament Commentaries, but does not depend on the other volumes. However, now that I have purchased this volume, I plan on buying the others as I continue into other New Testament studies.
Review of Leon Morris' Commentary of John' s Gospel  Jan 9, 2007
I highly recommend this commentary for in-depth study of John's Gospel. Morris cites numerous authorities for insights into the material and then provides his own thoughtful assessment of the meaning and background. He is extremely thorough even to the point of analyzing subtle points of the Greek grammar. This is not a book that you can read quickly. It is for serious study of the Gospel according to John.
A good commentary flawed by the zwinglian heresy  Sep 11, 2006
I read the commentary of John 6:52-53 and he says that the phrases "eat my flesh" and "drink my blood" can't be an alussion to the Eucharist, because both verbs are in aorist and this would mean that these actions are about a unique and irrepetible event,and we can't say that about the Eucharist.
Well, I want to say this with all the respect, and what I can tell you is that Leon Morris is completly wrong: I went to my Analytical Greek New Testament and I saw that John 6:52 or 53 has both verbs, eat and drink in aorist subjuntive active. After that I looked for identical verb forms in the Gospel of John and I found that if you go to John 17,10 you will read this:
"If you OBEY my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love".
Well, in the Greek Text the verb "obey" is in aorist subjuntive active voice, just like John 6:52 or 53. If we follow Leon Morris definition of the aorist, this would mean that it is enough to obey Jesus only once in a lifetime, and we will remain in Jesus'love forever. That's simply absurd and anti biblical. Read John 15:6. Leon Morris gives us a sample of how a heresy (the zwinglianism = salvation is sola fide, sacraments are nothing but symbols ) can make a good scholar be faithful to Zwingli, and forget about a good service to God's Word. If you go to Mark 7: 3-4 you will find that the greek verbs that the NIV translatates "give...a ceremonial washing" and "wash" are also aorist, subjuntive, and they can't be understood as "once in a lifetime" action:
"The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they GIVE their hands A CEREMONIAL WASHING", holding to the tradition of the elders. 4When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they WASH. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles" (Mark 7:3-4). The meaning is clear, the pharisees wash their hands each time that they came back home from their market place, and the same way Jesus tells us that each time (ean me) we eat Jesus flesh, Jesus gives us eternal life. Luther was right in this point, and Zwingli and Leon Morris, his disciple and not so good greek scholar are wrong.
