Product Description

In this addition to the award-winning BECNT series, respected New Testament scholar and biblical interpretation expert Gene Green offers a substantive yet highly accessible commentary on the books of Jude and 2 Peter. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Green leads readers through the sociological, historical, and theological aspects of these New Testament books.

As with all BECNT volumes, Jude and 2 Peter features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text. This commentary admirably achieves the dual aims of the series-academic sophistication and pastoral sensitivity and accessibility-making it a useful tool for pastors, church leaders, students, and teachers. The user-friendly design includes shaded chapter introductions summarizing the key themes of each thought unit.

Gene L. Green (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen) is professor of New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. In addition to writing numerous articles, he is the author of commentaries on 1 and 2 Thessalonians and 1 Peter. Prior to going to Wheaton in 1996, he taught in Latin America for thirteen years.

    Many had listed Gene Green's commentary on Jude/2 Peter as one of the best commentaries on those books to date. This may well be true (as I am unfamiliar with others). However, I wasn't blown away as I expected to be. Some very difficult passages weren't explained in a coherent manner and only a limited amount of opposing perspectives were considered. However, I have found this to be a rarity in the BECNT series (see Thomas Schreiner's excellent work on Romans for an example of just how in depth and interactive the BECNT series can be).

    I was very impressed with his treatment of the authorship of II Peter. I considered it to be a very balanced approach that still seeks to be faithful to the Bible as the Word of God. Although Green affirms Petrine authorship (as would I), he is careful not to overstate his case. He admits that there is still much work to be done and is not arrogant enough to call his work the final authority on the subject.
