Purpose & Scope
The ZECNT is strictly an exegetical commentary that focuses on the text and only raises peripheral concerns such as historical background when necessary. Strong emphasis is placed on syntax, structure, and grammatical relationships. This focus is maintained throughout and keeps the commentary simple though still linguistically technical. This commentary series is not tradition specific and is intended for seminary students, trained pastors, and scholars.
This series is still in early stages, though volumes have appeared quickly. Currently 5 volumes are available and 3 more including Acts, Colossians/Philemon, and 1&2 Thessalonians will appear by the end of 2012.
