I know option three does not currently exist in Acc and I've opened a different thread on that.
But, how do these compare ? Hermeneia looks fantastic (particular interesting is the extra-biblical content) but its generally lower, or un-, ranked on bestcommentaries whereas NIGTC does pretty well in some volumes. The exegetical summary is unranked. My guess is that such a detailed dissection of the text at the grammatical level is not as popular and something a little more digestible, but perhaps it's something else. In any case as I am quite happy to suffer the odd case of indigestion I am wondering how these three commentaries compare in their treatment of the detail of the original language text, and background contextual information. I have watched the Dr J. podcast on the Hermeneia which was helpful but as he himself pointed out a 10 minute or so podcast hardly does more than scratch the surface of such a work.
All such queries are necessarily vague at the outset - sorry about that. If it helps I am studying Hebrews and given how well regarded Ellingworth's NIGTC Hebrews is (oh and the fact that it's on sale) I am interested. My primary concern is with the original language.
Any thoughts or comments gratefully received.
