The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament is a vital tool for anyone looking to boost their biblical grasp. Whether you’re a pastor, professor, small group leader, or an inquisitive mind, the EGGNT will provide you with an in-depth view of 14 New Testament books.

Oftentimes, it’s difficult to fully translate a thought from one written language to another. The EGGNT acts as a bridge, clarifying many ambiguities and empowering you to better communicate the New Testament’s foundational messages.

What’s Inside

Firstly, each volume begins with important notes from the editors on authorship, dates, purpose, structure, and additional recommended commentaries. This context helps you understand the situation that the authors, audiences, and key figures might be addressing or experiencing.

Each book’s guide goes paragraph by paragraph, dissecting the Greek structure, phraseology, and key words. Because they take the book one chunk at a time, Köstenberger and Yarbrough highlight the biblical authors’ lines of reasoning, repeated motifs, and structural substance.

After that, the editors recommend additional resources for studying topics that are relevant to the paragraph. Finally, each section ends with homiletical (teaching) suggestions. This last part is perfect for pastors and teachers creating a sermon and helps solidify key applications from that paragraph.

After every paragraph of the biblical text is thoroughly dissected, most volumes contain an English translation of the entire text followed by an extended paraphrase (similar to the Amplified Bible), which helps fill interpretive gaps. This paraphrase is drawn straight from the original Greek. Every volume has a comprehensive exegetical outline and index of terms.
