Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary (ZECNT & ZECOT) brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume.
New Testament volumes, written by notable evangelical scholars, treat the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek, providing an original translation based on the literary structure. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds.
Old Testament volumes provide careful discourse analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, tracing the flow of argument in each Old Testament book, demonstrating that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say. Each volume offers a set of distinctive features, including:
The diagram of each passage enables readers to grasp quickly and accurately the main idea of the text, its development, and supporting ideas; and allows them to understand how the commentator arrived at this depiction and interpretation of the passage. The commentary places a special emphasis on identifying and discussing the main thrust of each passage and showing how it contributes to the development of the whole composition. Readers will find help in drawing out the meaning of the Hebrew for interpretation.
While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Hebrew, all who strive to understand the Old Testament and better convey its meaning will find these books beneficial. Each unit concludes with a discussion of the canonical and practical significance of the passage, synthesizing its theology and message for readers today. There are many exegetical commentaries, but none accomplish what this series has achieved.
Series general editors are Clinton E. Arnold (Old Testament) and Daniel I. Block (New Testament).
