New Intl. Greek Testament Commentary (13 Volumes)
Also available in individual volumes.
For even more information on this series, see this article.
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.

The commentary engages with the Greek text of the New Testament. It does not try to say everything: just what is useful for the student who wishes to understand the Greek. It doesn’t shy away from the semantic and syntactical problems, though.

NIGTC: pros, cons and exceptions: Is it for you?
This series focuses on the Greek text and its exegesis. It assumes that the reader has some comfortable knowledge of Greek. However, it is different kind of commentary with some notable exceptions:
* It can be a valuable resource for students who desire to learn exegesis and understand the Greek text.
* It can be helpful to some exegetes when it comes to some rare words in the NT, such as in the book of Hebrews. It can be helpful in breaking down the rhetoric of Pauline letters.
*The Greek is offered in Greek letters which is helpful for those who read Greek.
* For those who know Greek, very little is offered by this series. There are some useful nuggets here and there.
* It is thin when it comes to theological insights, logical implications, and helpful backgrounds. Not that the authors are incapable of doings so, but this is not their focus. I would not recommend it for a pastor to prepare his messages.
There are some exceptions of course, such as the volume by R.T. France. But this is because the volume is more focused on theology, logic and background than on Greek exegesis.
Overall, I do not recommend it for Pastors. I recommend it for students and some exegetes. It might be helpful to acquire few volumes that are relevant to you.
