Our culture does not encourage thoughtful reflection on truth. Yet living the gospel in a postmodern culture demands that Christians understand and internalize the truth about God and his plan for the world. The book of John has been known as the beloved gospel because John probes the depth of Christ's character with a simplicity and majesty that cannot be forgotten. When the earliest theological councils in the fourth and fifth centuries worked to define Christian beliefs, it was John's gospel that gave critical guidance.

John, A Video Study by Gary M. Burge, together with Burge's accompanying NIV Application Commentary on John, brings the meaning of John's gospel into the twenty-first century. Burge comments on the text itself and explores issues in John's culture and in ours that help us understand the ultimate meaning of each passage.
