John links his stories together in interesting ways.
“The thief comes in to steal, kill and destroy.” 10:10
- Compare with v. 31, 39; 11:8-9
“The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.” 10:11(also 15, 17)
- Compare with 11:50; 12:7-8; 12:23ff
- “The sheep listen to his voice.” 10:3, 4, 8, 16.
- Compare with 10:25-31; 11:43-44
“This Mary…was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair…” 11:2
“The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face…” 11:44
“You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.” 11:50
Note: This is the John style. The Letter of I John has a circular structure where several themes are stated, repeated and developed over the book, like a rope woven of strands.
Due to a recent comment on the article “Picking a Translation”, I have decided to add here a couple of useful resources:
ESV Study bible – I have come to use the ESV a lot, as it is both readable and a more literal translation. Lots of friends are sold on the Study Bible, but I have not as yet taken the plunge. Most often I print an english copy of the text from the ESV for the colored pencil treatment. http://www.esv.org/
www.biblia.com is a great new website with several translations. I’d like them to have a notes free version of the ESV, but otherwise it is nicely done.
There are OT and NT bibliographies at Denver Seminary’s web site – this is excellent. http://www.denverseminary.edu/resources/the-denver-journal/articles03/0100/0101.php/#commentaries There is an Annotated O. T. Bibliography and a N. T. Exegesis Bibliography.
