A New Approach to Exegesis

The Lexham Discourse Commentary series guides readers through the Greek text, integrating insights from the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament and Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament. Each volume in the series shows how various discourse devices contribute to the overall flow and structure of the New Testament books by providing a unifying analysis of each text.

Dr. Steve Runge’s approach complements traditional approaches by helping readers understand the exegetical implications of the writer’s choices. The Lexham Discourse Commentaries offer sustained analysis on the text, but do not engage issues like background, setting, and audience that preoccupy traditional commentaries. Instead, Runge applies his years of research in discourse grammar to editing this running exegesis of the Greek. If you have been disappointed by the lack of discussion about structure, discourse flow, and rhetorical strategies in modern commentaries, then the Lexham Discourse Commentaries are for you.

    I've been waiting for these to come out for a long time. Now they are finally here. I have only worked through one section in the Colossians volume by Kris Lyle so I can't act like my review is exhaustive, but I can say, these are great resources. They go clause my clause through the original text and speak to the features and flow of though. The idea of mental representation is helpful to grasp and the author helps you catch what, in this case, Paul is doing in the discourse. I also love that there is a connection to the discourse devices in Runge's Discourse Grammar. Also, the focus is on the text and following the original authors flow of though rather than constraining it to a predetermined outline from a translation. A lot of great things to say about this. This is the theory of discourse grammar plus other things at work on a text and I love it. Thankful for these resources. I would love to see more handbooks produced. I know these took a long time to get out, but I would still plead with Faithlife or someone else to consider continuing this needed series.
