Enjoy Precise, Verse-By-Verse Commentary
Each commentary section, titled "Exposition," takes a careful look at the language behind the text. The text is examined in verse segments based on contextual ties. Each section of text has a short title describing the theme, a brief discussion of the overall context, and a thorough study on the key lexical and literary aspects.
A Treasury of Scholarly Notes
Following each commentary section is a section titled "Notes" that take you deeper into the author’s research and study. Here, the author can discuss alternative readings, variants in the text, and further comments on specific Greek and Hebrew words. Each biblical word is displayed in Greek or Hebrew, then transliterated, and then accurately translated into English. This makes all words accessible to those who have little or no language training. However, the concepts discussed are deep enough to benefit scholars and exegetical preachers.
Plus, Volume 1 includes introductory articles on Theology, Archeology, Chronology, and many other topics. You'll find this first volume a gold mine of background information.
Many Wordsearch users have made The Expositor's Bible Commentary their go-to resource for study and sermon and lesson preparation.
