Overview of Commentary Organization

  • Introduction--covers issues pertaining to the whole book, including context, date, authorship, composition, interpretive issues, purpose, and theology.
  • Each section of the commentary includes:
  • Pericope Bibliography--a helpful resource containing the most important works that pertain to each particular pericope.
  • Translation--the author's own translation of the biblical text, reflecting the end result of exegesis and attending to Hebrew and Greek idiomatic usage of words, phrases, and tenses, yet in reasonably good English.
  • Notes--the author's notes to the translation that address any textual variants, grammatical forms, syntactical constructions, basic meanings of words, and problems of translation.
  • Form/Structure/Setting--a discussion of redaction, genre, sources, and tradition as they concern the origin of the pericope, its canonical form, and its relation to the biblical and extra-biblical contexts in order to illuminate the structure and character of the pericope. Rhetorical or compositional features important to understanding the passage are also introduced here.
  • Comment--verse-by-verse interpretation of the text and dialogue with other interpreters, engaging with current opinion and scholarly research.
  • Explanation--brings together all the results of the discussion in previous sections to expose the meaning and intention of the text at several levels: (1) within the context of the book itself; (2) its meaning in the OT or NT; (3) its place in the entire canon; (4) theological relevance to broader OT or NT issues.
  • General Bibliography--occurring at the end of each volume, this extensive bibliographycontains all sources used anywhere in the commentary.

    David Rensberger shows here how the Epistles of John spoke to the emerging concerns of an early Christian community that cherished John's Gospel. The Epistles apply many of the themes of the Gospel to new situations. In particular the Elder, who writes these epistles, reminds his readers that their love of God must be made concrete in the love they show their fellow Christians. At the same time, Rensberger shows how these letters face the problems of theological disagreement and church division, and how they can help Christians today better understand theological diversity and the struggle for church unity.

    Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. These books are ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.

    Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek, and each author provides an original translation based on the literary structure. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author's message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor.

    1-3 John

    In her commentary on John's letters, Karen H. Jobes writes to bridge the distance between academic biblical studies and pastors, students, and laypeople who are looking for an in-depth treatment of the issues raised by these New Testament books. She approaches the three letters of John as part of the corpus that includes John's gospel, while rejecting an elaborate redactional history of that gospel that implicates the letters. Jobes treats three major themes of the letters under the larger rubric of who has the authority to interpret the true significance of Jesus, an issue that is pressing in our religiously pluralistic society today with its many voices claiming truth about God.

    Francis Schaeffer once remarked that America is a post-Christian nation. If this is true, 1 Peter may well be one of the most relevant books in the New Testament. This small letter has much to say to individuals living in a non-Christian society. This commentary explores key issues that may explain why 2 Peter is one of the least read books of the Bible. The relationship between 2 Peter and Jude is given special attention. Five major objections to the Christian message, as presented by false teachers, are presented and Peter's rebuttal to each is noted. 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John and Jude is written with pastors and local church teachers in mind. Drawing on excellent biblical scholarship, this compelling commentary offers clear applications that impact the daily life of followers of Christ. This study provides excellent insight on the nature of Christ, the dynamic power of love, and the essence of holy living.

    Dr. Ryrie's admiration for these letters is clear: "These epistles are like finely cut gems... From every part shine forth the character and conduct of Paul's missionary heart, and they sparkle with the brilliance of captivating power of the Gospel of Christ."

    Paul's was basically satisfied, even thrilled, with the progress of his flock. But he wanted to encourage them to go on in their faith, to be strong in persecution, wary of temptation, and watchful for the Lord's Second Coming.

    In Charles Ryrie's timeless commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians, the great theologian illuminates Paul's clear teaching for his strong but not infallible church in the powerful, sensual city of Thessalonica. He shows how the apostle had to defend himself and his conduct from charges of slander, and how Paul was pleased with his recent converts and their vibrant, durable faith.

    But despite Paul's favor, he wanted to clear up some misconceptions the young church had about the Second Coming of Christ. In these two letters, he corrects confusion about when Christ would come back, and more important, he bolsters the hearts of this persecuted flock with the glorious hope of Christ's resurrection, his return, and eternal life.
