In this outstanding commentary series, R. C. H. Lenski interprets the books of the New Testament on the basis of careful and thorough exegetical research. The author, a meticulous student of Greek, provides an original, literal translation of the text. Section by section he examines carefully the background and essential teaching contained in each portion of the New Testament. Writing from a conservative point of view, Lenski uses available sources of exegetical study. He also brings to light new interpretations of Scripture which will be of special interest to the preacher. The author s purpose is to answer the question What does this portion of the Bible say to us? He sees the answer to the question against the background of the whole message of the Word of God.
The treatment is exhaustive; it seems that nothing has been overlooked or omitted.
A great work of exegesis, every page the result of long meditation, based on rich scholarship, warm with holy reverence for the Word of God.
