The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Needed Scholarly Exegetical WorkNovember 14, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are looking through and evangelical commentary on the Hebrew of Exodus, then Exodus Volume 1 and 2,by Eugene Carpenter published by Lexham Publishers is the commentary you are looking for. These two commentates are some of the more recent volume in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series edited by H. Wayne House, a series which is synonymous with excellent exegesis and superior application, this volume continues the long legacy. This volume is one of the most articulate and practical modern commentaries on the second book of the Pentateuch. While Carpenter is no stranger to Biblical commentaries this is his first foray into this first-rate commentary series. Furthermore it was a joy to see this commentary come to fruition at all due to Carpenter's accidental death in 2012.
The first volume, Exodus 1-18, begins with the typical introductory section. As with most technical commentaries, Carpenter spends just over 50 pages with these important introductory matters. Carpenter's focus is the discussion of textual issues regarding the original Hebrew text. In this section he has a few well-formed conclusions. The most important of which being that the original text is well preserved in the final manuscript that we have in our Bibles today. Secondly when discussing authorship, Carpenter, holds to Mosaic authorship as well as Exodus being the true title of the second book of the Pentateuch. In a day when Mosaic authorship is always questioned, it is Illuminating to see a scholar of Carpenter's caliber hold fast to Moses being the author / editor of the book of Exodus. And other issues such as date Carpenter does not truly add any new ideas to the discussion rather giving a nebulous date to its formulation.
In the next section, of Exodus 1-18, as with all Evangelical Exegetical Commentaries, Carpenter dives headlong into the theological elements of the specific biblical book, in this case Exodus. In this section Carpenter discusses themes such as the God who speaks in Acts, the people of God, and how Exodus is a lasting paradigm for the mighty acts of God. Each of these themes is discussed brilliantly in short form and should be a great aid to any Minister preaching exegetically through the book of Exodus. One further note in the introduction is Carpenter adds a very thorough outline and bibliography which will be a great use to any Minister teaching exegetically or non-exegetically through the second book of the Pentateuch.
With regard to the commentary section of this first volume Carpenter spins just shy of 600 Pages dealing with the text of Exodus 1 through 18. The thoroughness in which Carpenter goes through must be commended. He diligently gives his own translation of the Hebrew text while giving a full body commentary to the textual notes and the text itself. Sporadically Carpenter also adds comments on biblical Theology and application and devotional implications. Furthermore at the end of each pericope he adds a pinpoint focused bibliography and at that pericope itself. Each of these traits is extremely helpful to the pastor as well as scholar.
In the second volume, Exodus 19 through 40, Carpenter continues his commentary pericope by pericope, through the end of the book of Exodus. While there is still the same great commentary on the Hebrew text in regards to text textual analysis, commentary, and application, Carpenter does seem to have less to say about the final twenty-one chapters then he did up the first eighteen. A feature of note inside the second volume is the numerous experiences that carpenter has to end the second volume. These excursuses include the historicity of Moses, the date of Moses, the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, questioning the large numbers in Exodus, and a study in the Covenant whole structure in Exodus. Each of these excursuses while short and length are very impactful to anyone who plans to study the second book of the Pentateuch.
With regard of recommending,Exodus 1-18 and 19-41,to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, with one caveat. By this I mean I recommend this work to Pastors, Bible Teachers, Bible College Students, there is enough scholarly weight to this work to understand a particular issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text. There are many commentaries about the second book of thePentateuch available at this moment butExodus1-18 and 19-41, of the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series are a giant leap above all other commentaries on this book of the Bible.

Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Volume 2 of a Great Commentary!October 10, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The second volume by Eugene Carpenter in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) series covers Exodus 19 through 40. The commentary maintains the high standards set in volume 1. Without a doubt, this is a major exegetical commentary on Exodus. Mr. Carpenter has clearly done a great deal of work that he shares here.
The Introduction that Mr. Carpenter writes for Exodus is in volume 1. This volume picks up at 19:1 with the same type of commentary we saw in the earlier volume. He has an introduction for each passage, followed by a translation, verse by verse commentary, biblical theology comments, application and devotional implications, and a selected bibliography for that passage.
The work is deep, full, and yet accessible. He succeeds on the exegetical and the theological level. He interacts with some scholarly opinions that I find little value in, but he does provide much that is of great help.
This volume covers the 10 Commandments as well as the ceremonial laws in the later chapters of Exodus. Scholars will find a treasure trove of footnotes for further study.
This work is well done and it is well worth adding to your library. I recommend it.
