Details


Also available in individual volumes.

This commentary series is established on the presupposition that the theological character of the New Testament documents calls for exegesis that is sensitive to theological themes as well as to the details of the historical, linguistic, and textual context. Such thorough exegetical work lies at the heart of these volumes, which contain detailed verse-by-verse commentary preceded by general comments on each section and subsection of the text.

An important aim of the NIGTC authors is to interact with the wealth of significant New Testament research published in recent articles and monographs. In this connection the authors make their own scholarly contributions to the ongoing study of the biblical text.

The text on which these commentaries are based is the UBS Greek New Testament, edited by Kurt Aland and others. While engaging the major questions of text and interpretation at a scholarly level, the authors keep in mind the needs of the beginning student of Greek as well as the pastor or layperson who may have studied the language at some time but does not now use it on a regular basis.

For a seminary course we were assigned R.T. France's Mark commentary in the NIGTC series--I actually read it page-for-page, and it was phenomenal. His love for Mark as Scripture and thorough scholarship made for an exhilarating combination. I can't recommend it highly enough. The Hebrews volume in the same series is also good.

And to agree with what others have noted, non-Greek readers could still benefit immensely from this series. Both in print and in software it's pricey, but at least for the volumes I've used, well worth what they cost.

The NIGTC is a series primarily directed at those with some basic knowledge of NT Greek. Like most commentary series, some volumes are stronger contributions than others, but all thirteen volumes are useful and contain practical help with exegeting the Greek text. This series in Accordance features all the print volumes available, including the currently out-of-print volume on Colossians by J.D.G. Dunn.

The strongest volumes, in my opinion, are the ones on Revelation by Beale, 1 Corinthians by Thistleton, 2 Corinthians by Harris, and the Pastoral Epistles by Knight. I have found that the volumes on Luke and Colossians are not as helpful for exegesis, as they often tend to focus on more specialized areas of study, such as the authorship of Colossians or the relationship of Luke to the other synoptics. While these are interesting questions, they should reside more in the introduction than in the commentary proper, which is, unfortunately, not the case in these two volume ...

While these are interesting questions, they should reside more in the introduction than in the commentary proper, which is, unfortunately, not the case in these two volumes. At times, Dunn's volume reads more like an extended discussion of Pauline authorship, and Marshall's work on Luke seems more like an extended discussion of various types of Gospel criticism.

In general, these commentaries are conservative and, in most respects, evangelical. They provide adequate bibliographies to help the student and scholar alike begin to swim through the ocean of secondary literature, as well as containing helpful footnotes throughout. My biggest criticism of the series is that it is incomplete and missing volumes on significant NT documents like the Gospel of John and the Epistle to the Romans. We can hope that Eerdmans/Paternoster will have forthcoming works complete this otherwise outstanding series.
