Product Details

In this addition to the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT), respected New Testament scholar and teacher Gene Green offers a substantive yet highly accessible commentary on the books of Jude and 2 Peter. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Green leads readers through the sociological, historical, and theological aspects of these New Testament books. As with all BECNT volumes, Jude and 2 Peter features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text. This commentary admirably achieves the dual aims of the series--academic sophistication and pastoral sensitivity and accessibility--making it a useful tool for professors, students, pastors, and church leaders. The user-friendly design includes shaded chapter introductions summarizing the key themes of each thought unit and concluding text-critical notes.

About the Series

  • Critical Reviews

    Gene Green has written a solidly conservative evangelical commentary on Jude and 2 Peter that is informed by ancient rhetorical practice and sociological observation. It contains a wealth of exegetical detail and judicious observations, which means that this work will have to be consulted by future scholars researching Jude and 2 Peter and will immediately profit pastors and Bible teachers exploring and applying these works in various contemporary settings. It is well worth the effort expended to work through the abundance of information that it presents.
    Peter H. Davids, professor of biblical theology, St. Stephen's University
    This commentary is full of careful historical exegesis that is especially well informed by the literature, philosophy, and rhetoric of the Greco-Roman world. It is an ideal companion to a detailed study of these still undervalued New Testament books.
    Richard Bauckham, emeritus professor of New Testament studies, St. Andrews University, Scotland
    This solid commentary interprets the letters of Jude and 2 Peter in their original historical contexts by engaging relevant contemporary Greco-Roman sources while employing the best practices of current New Testament scholarship. Green ably demonstrates how understanding the sociocultural world of the first century deepens our knowledge of the biblical message. I heartily commend this commentary to those who are interested in an in-depth study of Jude and 2 Peter by a seasoned evangelical scholar.
    Karen H. Jobes, Gerald F. Hawthorne Professor of New Testament Greek and Exegesis, Wheaton College and Graduate School
    This series has set a new standard in reader-friendliness with its attractive presentation that combines detailed exegetical comment on the Greek text with accessibility for those who have little or no knowledge of the original language of the New Testament.
    I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen
