An Interview with Robert Yarbrough on the Epistles of John

Robert Yarbrough is chair of the New Testament Department and associate professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I'm really looking forward to his Baker Exegetical Commentary on 1-3 John, which is being published in November.

Today CT's Collin Hansen interviews Dr. Yarbrough about his work on the Epistles of John--as well as his views on the the relationship between teaching and writing, his views on computer technology for biblical studies, why he has invested his time into theological education in Eastern Europe and Africa, and more. May God continue to raise up more scholars like Dr. Yarbrough!

As some may know, Dr. Yarbrough authored the notes on 1-3 John for the ESV Study Bible. The introduction and notes for 1 John are now available on the web for free as a sample download.
