Product Description

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.

Overview of Commentary Organization
  • Introduction - covers issues pertaining to the whole book, including context, date, authorship, composition, interpretive issues, purpose, and theology.
  • Pericope Bibliography - a helpful resource containing the most important works that pertain to each particular pericope.
  • Translation - the author's own translation of the biblical text, reflecting the end result of exegesis and attending to Hebrew and Greek idiomatic usage of words, phrases, and tenses, yet in reasonably good English.
  • Notes - the author's notes to the translation that address any textual variants, grammatical forms, syntactical constructions, basic meanings of words, and problems of translation.
  • Form/Structure/Setting - a discussion of redaction, genre, sources, and tradition as they concern the origin of the pericope, its canonical form, and its relation to the biblical and extra-biblical contexts in order to illuminate the structure and character of the pericope. Rhetorical or compositional features important to understanding the passage are also introduced here.
  • Comment - verse-by-verse interpretation of the text and dialogue with other interpreters, engaging with current opinion and scholarly research.
  • Explanation - brings together all the results of the discussion in previous sections to expose the meaning and intention of the text at several levels: (1) within the context of the book itself; (2) its meaning in the OT or NT; (3) its place in the entire canon; (4) theological relevance to broader OT or NT issues.
  • General Bibliography - occurring at the end of each volume, this extensive bibliography contains all sources used anywhere in the commentary.

    I'm teaching a class at a Christian University on the Major Prophets and have found this commentary excellent material to use in preparation for my classes.

    I did not care for this commentary. For one thing it is confusing. There is the WBC format that is confusing but if you are use to this format and have used it before you can get past this. In the translation portion of the commentary he writes it as a play and gives almost every line a different character (I have no idea where he gets this). He does not believe in one Isaiah of Jerusalem in 700's BC, but feels it is a drama in six acts. I prefer either Young's or Oswalt's commentaries on Isaiah
