From the Publisher
D.A. Carson is one of evangelicalism’s most trusted pastor-scholars. Having published numerous books for lay and pastoral audiences, Carson has also edited and authored some of the most important academic works of the last fifty years. A stalwart defender of the Bible’s authority and trustworthiness, Carson will remain influential among evangelicals of all stripes for generations to come.
Scripture’s Text Illuminated
As with all volumes in the Pillar series, Carson’s commentary on John makes clear the flow and meaning of the text. Using secondary scholarship judiciously, Carson skillfully links exegesis of the text with critical issues in biblical and systematic theology. Throughout, Carson remains focused on John’s gospel message and underscores that commitment at every turn.
Carson’s commentary is expositional in style and based on a verse-by-verse exegesis of the Greek text. Yet, while Greek is referenced throughout, it is not necessary to understand that language to use the commentary extensively. References appear in parentheticals and readers can use them or ignore them as they wish.
For Pastors, Scholars, & Laity
Whether you’re preaching, teaching, or just studying the Bible on your own or in a group, D.A. Carson’s commentary will help you achieve a detailed understanding of John’s Gospel. Designed for easy navigation, the commentary is easy to adapt to your needs and focuses both on key details and broader theological themes such as Jesus’s identity, the meaning of his life and death, and the implications of his teaching.

Praise for The Gospel According to John
Keith Mathison, Reformation Bible College
To date, the Pillar New Testament Commentaries have been consistently excellent. This is largely due to the fact that D.A. Carson is the general editor. Carson’s Gospel of John set the bar very high. It shows his usual exegetical care and insight. Very highly recommended to any who wants to understand better the Gospel of John.
Tim Challies, Pastor and Author
The experts agree that Carson’s is the best in the field . . . Experts point to its readability, suggesting that it is suitable for every audience—scholars, pastors and laypersons.
James Montgomery Boice, Pastor and Author
Carson is one of the most able Bible exegetes of our time. In this volume he has drawn upon his considerable skills and knowledge to produce the most exciting, helpful, and sound commentary on the Gospel of John. I commend it to a wide range of readers. Pastors and laypersons alike will find it helpful, practical, and readable.
Leon Morris, Ridley College
Let me say three things about this commentary. First, it is written by a scholar who has read widely and has an excellent grasp of the literature on John. Second, it is written very lucidly. For all its depth it is easy to understand. Third, Carson has unfolded the thought of John in a very meaningful way. All who read this commentary will read to their profit.
