Book Review: Teaching 1,2,3 John

Author: Rev Mervyn Eloff                   Reviewed by Sylvia Bester


Teaching 1,2,3 JohnWhilst this book is mainly aimed at preachers and teachers of the Holy Scriptures, it is also of immense use to everyday people like you and me.

As we know all good biblical preaching and teaching has to begin with detailed “listening” to the text and how it applies to daily life. After all these Scriptures are “God breathed” and therefore a personal encounter with God in the text is crucial to a well delivered exposition.

Because each chapter concludes with: Ideas for application, questions to help understand the passage and apply the passage, it becomes a great tool for not only one’s own devotions but for group study as well.

Personally I was not only challenged and encouraged as I delved further into the Scriptures with the aid of these well thought out questions but was greatly humbled and inspired by them.

What amazed me about this book is the way that Mervyn (perhaps I am biased as I know him personally) brings these letters to life and helps us to apply them in the now. By his honest approach and very obvious knowledge of the New Testament and Ancient Greek he is able to explain these letters in a way that we can all comprehend and take to heart.

Do yourself a great favour, get this book for yourself, for a family member and a friend you won’t regret it.
