About-

If the New Testament represents the crown jewels of Christianity, the Gospel of John is its "pearl of great price," the most beloved, most read, most quoted, most distinctive, most memorable, most debated book in its canon.

Truth Revealed is ideal for individual and group study. It divides the Gospel of John into twelve units, providing helpful introductory features, summaries, learning objectives, and questions for each unit, and concludes by offering perspective on a specific topic that arises as one follows the narrative, always with an eye on the big picture, namely, guidance for daily living.

Few sayings attributed to Jesus are better known or more widely quoted than the words "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). At his trial before Pilate, Jesus declared that his purpose in life was to witness to the truth. Pilate responds with the Gospel's most memorable question: "What is truth?" The answer is explored in Truth Revealed, a commentary that provides literary, theological, historical, and textual guidelines for understanding the message of this ancient work in a way that is accessible and applicable to twenty-first century readers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Robert Vande Kappelle does it again. Truth Revealed is masterfully organized and serves as a guide to the Gospel of John for scholars, laity, and novices of the Bible. With depth of information and an inquisitive style, Bob provides a tool for our own search for spiritual truth."
--Daniel A. Stinson, Washington & Jefferson College, Washington, PA

"Since the first century, the gospels have occasionally been read and interpreted anti-semitically. In his commentary on John, Vande Kappelle demonstrates the Jewishness of Jesus and of his original followers. Written in a clear and lively style, Truth Revealed examines John's gospel historically, theologically, and literarily, in an ecumenically engaging manner. This book can help Christians rediscover the first-century setting of their faith and can be used profitably in current Jewish-Christian dialogue."
--Rabbi David Novitsky, Beth Israel Synagogue, Washington, PA

"Truth Revealed is a fitting coda from a long-time teacher and lifelong student of Scripture. Robert Vande Kappelle's clearly ecumenical approach draws insight from a vast array of scholarship and across the theological spectrum. This book can be used with profit by scholars, students, and general readers who sense there is yet greater truth to be discovered in John's good news."
--Walter C. Weaver, Washington & Jefferson College, Washington, PA
