Description: Throughout much of his life, Fr. Justin labored to compose Orthodox commentaries on the books of the New Testament. He wrote the present volume, on the Epistles of St. John the Theologian, in 1945 while staying in the age-old monasteries of the Ovcar-Kablar Gorge in Serbia. Within these pages one can sense the profound veneration that he had for the Apostle John, the "disciple whom Jesus loved' (John 21:7), and who Christ called a "son of thunder" (cf. Mark 3:17). About the Holy Apostle and Evangelist, Fr. Justin wrote: "he is simultaneously the greatest Thunderer of New Testament Truth and the greatest Thunderer of New Testament Love...Upon encountering him, such an extraordinary Apostle, people's souls must have felt exceptional joy and exceptional elations." Such was the heavenly encounter that Venerable Fr. Justin himself, a rare Christ-lover of our age, had with the First-Enthroned Apostle of theanthropic Love. Reading St. John's holy Epistle along with Fr. Justin's inspired commentary, the reader is drawn toward the same encounter with the Apostle of Love, and through Him, with Christ the god-man: the God of Love and the Only Lover of Man.
