A New Testament Commentary to Ignore at Your Own Peril

A New Testament Commentary to Ignore at Your Own Peril January 14, 2021

One of the best commentaries on the New Testament available is the New International Commentary on New Testament.

The commentary is top-notch all the way, featuring some of the best scholars in recent times:

F.F. Bruce

Douglas J. Moo

Gordon Fee

Robert Mounce

R.T. France

Joel B. Green

Paul Barrett

I. Howard Marshall

Leon Morris

And others

If you’re a serious student of the Bible, LOGOS Bible Software is a MUST.

I use it regularly.

The great thing is that you can look up any text using the Passage Guide, and it will bring up the corresponding section in the NT commentary that goes along with the text.

Just with a click of a mouse — and it takes seconds!

This feature is simply invaluable.

The New International Commentary on New Testament an incredible resource. The perspective isn’t progressive liberal nor fundamentalist.

It’s an evangelical perspective, but features other interpretations, then interlocks with them.

The collection of 26 volumes includes all of the books of the New Testament and provides an exposition of Scripture that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship, yet at the same time loyal to Scripture as the infallible Word of God.

This conviction is shared by all contributors to The New International Commentary on the New Testament and defines the goal of this ambitious series.

This decades-long project has become recognized by scholars, pastors, and serious Bible students as critical yet orthodox commentary marked by solid biblical scholarship within the evangelical Protestant tradition. The New International Commentary on the New Testament serves as an authoritative guide to the text of Scripture, bridging the cultural gap between today’s world and the world of the Bible. Each volume in the NICNT aims to help us hear God’s word as clearly as possible.

Scholars, pastors, and serious Bible students will welcome the fresh light that this commentary series casts on ancient yet familiar biblical texts. The contributors apply their proven scholarly expertise and wide experience as teachers to illumine our understanding of the New Testament. As gifted writers, they present the results of the best recent research in an interesting, readable, and thought-provoking manner.

Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book, looking especially at questions concerning its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. A select bibliography also points readers to resources for their own study. The author’s own translation from the original Hebrew and Greek texts forms the basis of the commentary proper. Verse-by-verse comments nicely balance the in-depth discussions of technical matters—such as textual criticism and critical problems—with exposition of the biblical writer’s theology and its implications for the life of faith today.

Indeed it’s an amazing tool. Especially when you use it with LOGOS Bible Software which I HIGHLY recommend.

When you get it, I recommend using the web version rather than the downloadable version. The web version is MUCH faster.

Once you have LOGOS, you can access the web version here.

Enjoy!
