The Apollos Old Testament Commentary (AOTC) aims to take with equal seriousness the divine and human aspects of Scripture. It expounds the books of the Old Testament in a scholarly manner accessible to non-experts, and it shows the relevance of the Old Testament to modern readers. Written by an international team of scholars and edited by David W. Baker and Gordon J. Wenham, these commentaries are intended to serve the needs of those who preach from the Old Testament, as well as scholars and all serious students of the Bible.

The AOTC series introduces and examines the books of the Old Testament, bridging the gap between the age in which they were written and the age in which we now read them. Each commentary begins with an Introduction which gives an overview of the issues of date, authorship, sources, and outlines the theology of the book, providing pointers towards its interpretation and contemporary application. An annotated Translation of the Hebrew text by the author forms the basis for the subsequent commentary.

Within the commentary, Form and Structure sections examine the context, rhetorical devices, and source and form-critical issues of each passage. Comment sections offer thorough, detailed exegesis of the historical and theological meaning of each passage, and Explanation sections offer a full exposition of the theological message within the framework of biblical theology and a commitment to the inspiration and authority of the Old Testament.

Each of the ten volumes included are also available individually. Volumes include:

    I’m rich in ownership of commentaries and access to more than I own; AND in knowledge about ther various commentary series there is, there are very many different ones (most which differ from each other substantially but most that are also pretty uneven in quality-within-series and in akin to like grades ratings-per-volume-within-series). IT’S REALLY BASIC ALL-AROUND KNOWLEDGE THAT MOST WOULD AGREE AROUND: Apollos (Old Testament only) is the Old Testament counterpart to Pillar (New Testament only), even officially too (though it’s seldom announced as so) – and yes I know it’s two different publishers. The set has come out under two different publishers, yes. Apollos and Pillar are BOTH MUCH BETTER THAN Tyndale Commentaries, especially considering that the price-points are enough similar. And Tyndale is MUCH BETTER THAN Expositor’s Bible Commentary Revised. IT DOESN’T MATTER FOR MY OPINIONS AND CHOICES AND ADVICE I GIVE OUT – THE WHICH SET IS ON SALE AT WHICH POINT IN TIME and for what exact prices. Most of the very best commentaries are worth their price especially in digital format. This is all really basic knowledge and judgement, and this is pitting just sets against each other, not speaking of usefulness or lack thereof of individual volumes or the evenness or lack thereof.

    Most simple rule of thumb: Look at the page-counts per volume. While a rough and a bit unfair/opaque qualifier, it does answer something when You ask Yourself what commentary You need FOR A PARTICULAR BOOK IN THE Bible. It’s not as simple as more pages automatically equals more expensive and advanced. Oftentimes volumnious commentaries are quite readable such as the Gospel of John volume in the New International Commentary on the New Testament series by J. Ramsey Michaels (2010) 1058 pages in total for just that volume. Then, there are too many commentaries that are either too verbose (reads like huge sermons-series (yuck!)), or are too technical and really hard to get through. But if You find something on Your level and readable to you, unless it’s a really shitty set or volume, there’s a great chance it is right for You for exactly what You intend to use it for whatever that may be! Only BIG CAUTION IS NOT TO BUY ANY Revelation (that is in the New Testament, the last book), commentaries – they are ALL completely wrong on evething and ALL denominations are wrong about the book of Revelation (I’m not siding with any church or continuing prophet)! As long as you choose based on something ELSE THAN the book of Revelation in the series You’re not going completely wrong!
