The Bible reaches across the centuries to speak truth into our lives. But the less we know about it, and the less we grapple with the passages that perplex and challenge us, the less we appreciate its life-giving power.
Sometimes all it takes is a little perspective to realize just how near God really is. If you’re looking for some fresh perspective on Scripture, now is a great time to get your hands on a New Testament commentary.
Generations of Bible students have relied on Kirsopp Lake’s critical treatment of the New Testament. His attention to detail and knowledge of biblical studies make these landmark works invaluable to students of the Bible.
With Lake’s research at your fingertips, you can explore the New Testament behind the scenes:
- Dig into textual criticism on the New Testament.
- Study historical evidence of Christ’s resurrection.
- Explore the history of Mount Athos.
- Examine notions of immortality in modern religions.
- Investigate the roots of early Christianity.
John Lightfoot offers a unique commentary that captures the Jewish perspective on the social and cultural context of the New Testament’s people, places, and events. Lightfoot makes full use of the Talmud and other Hebrew and Aramaic literature to provide thorough commentary on the Gospels, Acts, Romans, and 1 Corinthians.
