by Craig S. KeenerA tremendous amont of Jewish background research went into this commentary. It is well written from a strongly evangelical, Charismatic, and Jewish contextualized perspective.It really is a brilliant work. Anybody who wants to go deep intoJohn's inspired account of Yeshua's life, death, burial, and resurrection should prayerfully consider exploring this commentary. While his love for the Messianic Jewish community is evident, I still think he is mistaken in his understanding that believing Gentiles were recognized as Jews in the first century. Perhaps, outsiders saw them this way? His argument for this is not a typical replacement argument but rather an implication of his view that first century faith in Jesus was a eschatological restoration of Judaism. Therefore for a Gentile to repent, believe, and be immersed was the entrance into Judaism, albeit without the need for circumcision. I think a commonwealth of Israel theology is the more biblical understanding of how Gentiles are attached to Israel in one body, remaining Spirit-filled Gentiles in organic unity with distinctions in callings.
