Calvin preached and wrote prolifically on the Bible.

Calvin wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, and is best known for his commentaries on the Pauline epistles, his harmony of the Gospels, and his 5-volume work on the Psalms—all included in this massive collection.

For every chapter of the Bible, the commentary contains a section on preaching themes, which are organized topically, conceptually, and chronologically. Significant theological themes are also outlined for each section of the Bible, and homiletic notes are provided.

Heinrich August Wilhelm Meyer, a German Protestant with a gift for languages, published the first commentary in this collection in at the age of thirty-two. It would be a lifelong project, one he worked on concurrently with a busy pastorate and raising a family. Known to have an encyclopedic memory and an appetite for buying books, it was not uncommon for Meyer to be reading his contemporaries in his native German, but also in English, Dutch, and French—languages that came as natural to him as Greek, Latin, and even Gothic.

For over forty years Meyer balanced working on new additions to the commentary collection while also updating those already published with multiple, serious revisions. Before passing the baton to a few of his trusted peers to finish the NT, Meyer had completed sixteen volumes. Each book of the Bible is amply introduced, including biographical information about the authors, authorship controversies, information about the times of its composition, its intended audience, and more.

Some time ago a Logos employee discovered an old volume in a used bookshop, and, finding it useful, brought it to work to share with others.

Common to most of the volumes is a running set of notes, sometimes keyed to the verse but more often to a Greek word or phrase. This introductory material is quite voluminous. The page count in roman numerals is roughly equal to the page count of the actual commentary, rising over pages in some volumes Swete and Lightfoot, particularly. Valuable notes on the Greek text are provided, while introductory and background matter is omitted. His thoroughly Christ-centered view of Scripture comes through clearly in his extensive nine vol.

Augustine , Tertullian , St. Jerome , Origen , and more. In addition to Alford's Greek text, this massive work includes detailed grammatical, literary, lexical, and textual analysis of nearly every Greek word in the New Testament, along with comprehensive linguistic and idiomatic notes.

The Greek Testament represents an epochal shift in New Testament exegesis. Alford's approach to the Greek text is primarily textual and philological, unlike the purely homiletical and theological approach which previously dominated English language commentaries. This shift in approach not only changed the method of New Testament exegesis, it also altered the role of commentaries. He introduced German biblical criticism to the English-speaking world, thereby making a lasting impression on the scholarly approach to biblical translation and interpretation.

The 8-volume Logos edition of The Greek Testament contains Henry Alford's original four volumes, which includes the prolegomena Alford wrote at the beginning of each volume. The prolegomena discuss the critical apparatuses and contain introductory notes on the historical, textual, and linguistic issues that pertain to the Greek text of each book. In these prolegomena, Alford also discusses his method of textual criticism, and he evaluates at length the textus receptus and Tischendorf edition of the New Testament and the historical approach to textual criticism.

Many prominent numbers from the Bible—such as , 7, 12, 40—have entered the broader cultural consciousness. But what do they mean? And what does the Bible really say about them? In the 7-volume Numerical Bible , Frederick W. Grant surveys the structure and symbolism of Scripture, showing that the Bible is not comprised of piecemeal literary fragments and forgeries, but that its structure and symbolism reflects the careful intentions of divine inspiration.

The precision of numbers and the laws of mathematics, which undergirds the order of the universe, also undergirds the order of Scripture. Like the rest of the nature, Scripture exhibits traits of order, structure, and symbol. In fact, the numbers and the very structure of the Bible contain elements of divine revelation.

How do we discern the voice of God in the patterns, structures, and numerical symbols found throughout Scripture? Grant also provides his own translation of the Bible—noteworthy in its own right—along with notes and critical commentary. In these volumes, Olshausen discusses the leading critical points and unfolds the rich doctrinal and practical teachings of the New Testament.

He also carefully traces the history of canonization and the entire history of interpretation. In his Biblical Commentary on the New Testament , Olshausen writes at length on historical and authorship issues, linguistic and textual issues, and the New Testament use of the Old Testament. His commentary recognizes the organic unity of the entire Scriptures and the role of the Holy Spirit in its writing and interpretation, yet he encourages the use of historical and critical investigation of Scripture. In this way, Olshausen anticipates the debate over infallibility, inspiration, and inerrancy later taken up by B.

Warfield and the generations of Reformed and evangelical biblical scholars that followed. Although his New Testament commentary is rich with scholarly insight on textual, historical, and linguistic issues, his main goal of explaining the theological meaning of Scripture for ordinary readers remains throughout each volume of the commentary.

The Gnomon of the New Testament is still one of the books most valued by expositors of the New Testament. He includes the principles of interpretation from Scripture to draw out of it everything that it contains, in conformity with grammatico-historical rules and without being hampered by dogmatical considerations. While Gnomon may not be a very well-known word, its meaning helps us understand why Bengel titled his work Gnomon of the New Testament. One of the definitions of Gnomon is "the raised part of the sundial that casts the shadow.

In the same way the sundial serves a purpose in our lives, knowing the New Testament as well as the entire Bible is imperative for every Christian. A recognized standard of expository commentaries written by twenty-nine eminent scholars who were also preachers, representing every important branch of Protestantism. The inception of this work took place at a time when critical and historical scholarship had arrived at mature and reliable conclusions concerning the text and truth of the Bible.

What had been regarded as subversive of the Christian faith was now accepted without question. To be sure, there have been changes and even modifications in the attitude toward certain subjects, but the general consensus of Biblical scholarship has not been thereby affected. None of the results has in the least undermined the accepted view of the Church that the Bible is the Revelation of the spiritual life, imparted "by divers portions and in divers manners," and marked by energy, variety and adaptability. The Bible continues to occupy its place of finality as the supreme Authority on Religion and Morals.

In addition to the Greek text, this massive reference work contains textual, literary, and grammatical commentary on nearly every Greek word in the entire New Testament.
