Concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds.
Designed to assist the pastor and Bible teacher in conveying the significance of God’s Word, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series treats the literary context and structure of every passage of the New Testament book in the original Greek.
With a unique layout designed to help you comprehend the form and flow of each passage, the ZECNT unpacks:
- The key message.
- The author’s original translation.
- An exegetical outline.
- Verse-by-verse commentary.
- Theology in application.
While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will benefit from the depth, format, and scholarship of these volumes.
