Essential Bible Wisdom: GOOD NEWS by John, the Beloved Disciple, and John, the Elder
This completely new translation and reconstruction of John's Gospel and his three Letters (or Epistles) in the New Testament of the Bible, presents these books in their entirety and attempts to identify the Gospel contributions of John, the priest, the beloved disciple, and John, the elder or presbyter. (John's Letters, of course, were all written by the elder). Also included in this "Good News", is the Letter to Christian Exiles by Peter and Silvanus, in which it is argued that, although the letter (known as 1 Peter in English Bibles) was issued under Peter's authority, he had very little to do with its actual composition. 25 pages of Notes are also provided on various topics arising from this new translation and reconstruction, including an account of the four men named John who are associated with the Gospel; and the exclusive use of the Septuagint Old Testament (rather than the Hebrew Bible) as the source of all quotations from Scripture by New Testament writers.
