The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

StarlaSpringfield, MOAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent CommentaryJanuary 9, 2012StarlaSpringfield, MOAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This commentary gave me information that I found in no other commentary. And believe me, I looked at several. I appreciate Dr. Beasley-Murray's study and writing. He gives a detailed account of the text as well as how he believes some of the problem areas may be resolved. I love the technical aspect and have had no problems with his interpretations. I trust this commentary set above all others. This particular one would be a great asset on any student of the Bible's shelf.
Edmond Brown III5 Stars Out Of 5May 2, 2005Edmond Brown IIII have many sets of commentaries and none come close to Word Commentaries. They are technical and not an easy read, but the bounty yielded from their contents is invaluable to the expositor of the biblical text.
Stephen Squires5 Stars Out Of 5January 6, 2005Stephen SquiresI own 10 of the volumes and they are great. Most of the time people who don't like them really don't know how to use them. It helps to know a bit of Greek and Hebrew, as the word studies are invaluable. The bibliographies alone are worth the price of admission, perse. NICNT/OT is right up there as well. Get whatever is on sale between the two. For a great academically and detail oriented commentary, these are awesome.
John Tew3 Stars Out Of 5January 31, 2004John TewVery disappointed in this commentary. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't purchase it. You may get some use out of it but I haven't in my 6 month intense study of John.
Chris3 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2002ChrisGood but not great. Its highpoint is the exposition of the final chapters of the gospel dealing with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ Jesus.
