The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: James is the second book in a projected series of twenty volumes that seeks to bring together classroom, study, and pulpit by providing the student or pastor with information that is helpful to understand and expound the Greek text of the New Testament. Author Chris Vlachos aims to close the gap between grammatical analysis and exegesis, leading readers into an in-depth understanding of the New Testament Greek text by guiding them through an exegetical process that flows into sermon construction.
"As this commentary reveals, Chris is...committed to that fine tradition of biblical interpreation that finds its heart and soul in detailed interaction with the original text. He begins with description, providing for those of us who might no longer recognize all the Greek word forms at sight, the basic information without which serious exegesis cannot proceed...By adding references to key grammars and commentaries as well as to English translations, he also gives us perspective, pointing out which roads on this exegetical map have borne the heaviest traffic...But this commentary on James does more than simply collect information. A commentary must make judgments; and what distinguishes excellent commentaries is sound judment...I agree with the vast majority of them; and , even when I disagree, I can understand why Chris goes a different direction." - Douglas J. Moo from the volume forward.
Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to a translation and paraphrase of the whole book and extensive paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text. Also included are homiletical helps and suggestions for further study along with a glossary of grammatical and rhetorical terms. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.
This volume is available for individual purchase, or as part of the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament series.
