Macarthur NTC-2 The MacArthur New Testament Commentary

Respected preacher and Bible teacher Dr. John F. MacArthur needs no introduction to the Christian community in North America. His popular New Testament Commentary series has been published over the years since 1984. The main objective of the MacArthur NT Commentary is to explain and apply Scripture, focusing on the major doctrines and how they relate to the whole of the Bible.

The current new Accordance edition includes 28 volumes of the commentary covering most or all of 24 New Testament books, as shown below. The print value of the individual volumes is over $600, but of course Accordance adds value in terms of live hypertexts links, instant comparison of Bible versions and other commentaries, and the ability to search this commentary for any word, phrase or scripture, or to select anything in the commentary and find it instantly in any other module you own.

From the Preface to Each Volume

It continues to be a rewarding divine communion for me to preach expositionally through the New Testament. My goal is always to have deep fellowship with the Lord in the understanding of His Word, and out of that experience to explain to His people what a passage means. In the words of Nehemiah 8:8, I strive "to give the sense" of it so they may truly hear God speak and, in so doing, may respond to Him.

Obviously, God's people need to understand Him, which demands knowing His Word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15) and allowing that Word to dwell in us richly (Col. 3:16). The dominant thrust of my ministry, therefore, is to help make God's living Word alive to His people. It is a refreshing adventure.

This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. Some commentaries are primarily linguistic, others are mostly theological, and some are mainly homiletical. This one is basically explanatory, or expository. It is not linguistically technical, but deals with linguistics when this seems helpful to proper interpretation. It is not theologically expansive, but focuses on the major doctrines in each text and on how they relate to the whole of Scripture. It is not primarily homiletical, though each unit of thought is generally treated as one chapter, with a clear outline and logical flow of thought. Most truths are illustrated and applied with other Scripture. After establishing the context of a passage, I have tried to follow closely the writer's development and reasoning.

My prayer is that each reader will fully understand what the Holy Spirit is saying through this part of His Word, so that His revelation may lodge in the minds of believers and bring greater obedience and faithfulness--to the glory of our great God.
