Product Description

The Oxford Bible Commentary is a Bible study and reference work for 21st century students and readers that can be read with any modern translation of the Bible. It offers verse-by-verse explanation by the world's leading biblical scholars. From its inception, the OBC has been designed as a completely non-denominational academic commentary, carefully written and edited to provide the best scholarship in a readable style for readers from all faith backgrounds. It uses the traditional historical-critical method to search for the original meaning of the texts, but also brings in new perspectives and insights--literary, sociological, and cultural--to bring out the expanding meanings of these ancient writings and stimulate new discussion and further inquiry. Readers of the commentary ought to be aware that the commentary does not attempt to defend doctrinal positions but merely explicate the text.

This volume The Pentateuch takes an in-depth look at the four canonical testimonies to Jesus looking at them through various lenses with comprehensive detail, sound scholarship, and clear accessible information.

Publisher's Description

The Oxford Bible Commentary is a Bible study and reference work for 21st century students and readers that can be read with any modern translation of the Bible. It offers verse-by-verse explanation of every book of the Bible by the world's leading biblical scholars. From its inception, OBC has been designed as a completely non-denominational commentary, carefully written and edited to provide the best scholarship in a readable style for readers from all different faith backgrounds. It uses the traditional historical-critical method to search for the original meaning of the texts, but also brings in new perspectives and insights - literary, sociological, and cultural - to bring out the expanding meanings of these ancient writings and stimulate new discussion and further enquiry.

Newly issued in a series of part volumes, the OBC is now available in an affordable and portable format for the study of specific sections of the Bible. The Pentateuch, or Torah ('the law'), comprises the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, Genesis to Deuteronomy. The Commentaries are preceeded by introductions to the Old Testament and to the Pentateuch as a whole.
