New Testament Commentaries

Eerdmans New Testament commentary series delve into the canonical Christian texts, offering insights for students, teachers, and pastors from some of the most respected Bible scholars in the world.

The New International Commentary on the New Testament
The interpretive work reflected in these commentaries is based on careful study of the Greek text, but commentary readers need not be practiced in the biblical languages in order to benefit from them. In the same way, NICNT volumes reflect serious work in technical areas — such as linguistics, textual criticism, and historical concerns — but the commentary itself focuses on understanding the text rather than navigating scholarly debates.

The Pillar New Testament Commentary
Designed for serious readers of the Bible, The Pillar New Testament Commentary seeks above all to make clear the meaning of the text of Scripture as we have it. Writers of the PNTC volumes interact with the most important, informed contemporary debate yet avoid undue technical detail. Their ideal is a blend of rigorous exegesis and exposition, scholarship and pastoral sensitivity, with an eye alert both to biblical theology and to the contemporary relevance of the Bible.


The New International Greek Testament Commentary
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 thorough verse-by-verse commentary on the text of the UBS Greek New Testament, preceded by general comments on each section and subsection of the text.


The Two Horizons New Testament Commentary
Seeking to bridge the existing gap between biblical studies and systematic theology, this distinctive series offers section-by-section exegesis of the New Testament texts in close conversation with theological concerns. Written by respected scholars, the THNTC volumes aim to help pastors, teachers, and students engage in deliberately theological interpretation of Scripture.


The Bible in Medieval Tradition
The Bible in Medieval Tradition series aims to reconnect the church with part of its rich history of biblical interpretation and to show the contemporary applicability of that history. Each BMT volume features translations of lengthy selections from significant commentaries written between the ninth and fourteenth centuries, preceded by a substantial historical overview of medieval exegesis.


The Church’s Bible
The Church’s Bible serves to bring the early church’s tradition of biblical interpretation to life once again. Compiled, translated, and edited by leading scholars, these volumes draw extensively from patristic and early medieval commentators, illuminating Holy Scripture as it was understood during the first millennium of Christian history.
