The New Testament is a fascinating collection of documents that illuminate the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. It contains an amazing number of details in its texts that can easily be lost on the modern mind. This means that the full impact can pass by the reader, yet sometimes that snippet of information has major consequences for the meaning of the passage.
Commentaries are of some use, they cannot always pause long enough to develop the detail as they explain the main teaching of the passage. Bible dictionaries are helpful, but they are more interested in expressing the meaning of words rather than the significance of situations.
Harold Mare has helped the modern reader by combing the best elements of both in his New Testament Background Commentary. It is both a commentary and a dictionary of words, phrases and situations that shed light on the point the writer is trying to make. He accomplishes this by placing the explanations in Bible order so that it is easy to access the background comments of this book as you read through the Bible passage.
It is an invaluable companion to any reading of the New Testament. It is such a helpful tool you will wonder how you managed without one before!
New Testament backgrounds remained Dr. Mare's passion throughout life because of his commitment to understand and confirm the truths of Scripture. His observant eyes read forgotten history in the dust and dirt, in the shards and debris, that still powerfully evidence the reliability of God's Word.
cbcarter4 Stars Out Of 5helpfulMarch 20, 2015cbcarterQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Great book. Very helpful, packed with information and insights most of us may not be familiar with concerning the covered topics. The price is great. An affordable way to increase the quality of bible study. Definitely recommend. It's not a "read it through" book but for more specific studies.
