Overview

The Tyndale New Testament Commentary provides an exposition of Scripture that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship, yet at the same time loyal to Scripture as the infallible Word of God.

The Tyndale Commentary Series has long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, each book offers clear, reliable, and relevant expositions.

The Tyndale Bible Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural analysis, the Commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

With Logos Bible Software, you can reap the maximum benefit from the 20-volume TNTC by getting easier access to the contents of this series—helping you to use these volumes more efficiently for research and sermon preparation. Every word from every book has been indexed and catalogued to help you search the entire series for a particular verse or topic, giving you instant access to cross-references. Along with this, your titles will automatically integrate into custom search reports, passage guides, exegetical guides, and the other advanced features of Logos Bible Software.

Praise

Tyndale Commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other Commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible.

The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable.

—Christianity Today

There simply is no series of medium-length Commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale Commentaries.

Individual Titles

Matthew

  • Author: R. T. France
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 422

Matthew—the visit of the Magi, the Sermon on the Mount, the Great Commission: these are only a few of the well-known passages that draw readers specifically to Matthew's gospel. Yet it begins with a forbidding list of unknown names and apparently irrelevant 'begettings'. In fact, the early church may have placed Matthew first in the New Testament because it more fully than any other Gospel provides a Christian perspective on the relation between the church and the Jews, an issue that is still important today. R. T. France tackles this and other key issues in the Gospel with clarity, reliability and relevance.

R. T. France was formerly Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. He contributed to the New International Greek Testament Commentary (NIGTC) with his volume on The Gospel of Mark.

Mark

  • Author: R. Alan Cole
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 340

Who is Jesus? What is salvation? What is the good news? Our earliest written account of Jesus' ministry is widely acknowledged to be that of the Gospel of Mark. If so, it remains key in our answering these questions. Alan Cole treads a careful path between exclusively this-worldly or other-worldly interpretations of this landmark Gospel. His commentary provides a helpful starting point for all contemporary preaching and teaching from this Gospel.

The late R. Alan Cole was lecturer in Old Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney, and Trinity Theological College, Singapore.

Luke

  • Author: Leon Morris
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 370

The Gospel of Luke presents many unique pictures of Jesus. We see him in his Father's house as a child, we see him deliberately associating with the poor and the disreputable, and we see him in communion with the Holy Spirit. But we also see the larger picture of Jesus setting out resolutely for Jerusalem in order to fulfil God's plan for the world. With a critical awareness of scholarly discussions and a practical attentiveness to both the text and the reader, Leon Morris carefully places the themes of Luke's Gospel within the context of God's plan for all people.

The late Leon Morris was Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia. He contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volumes on The Gospel according to Matthew and The Epistle to the Romans.

John

  • Author: Colin Kruse
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 389

Among the Gospels, John's is unique. It has a unique structure with long conversations and extended debates, and much of its content is not found elsewhere. Jesus' relationship to the Father and his teaching on the Holy Spirit are given special prominence. Ultimately, faith, believing in Jesus, is at the centre —with signs highlighted to provoke faith and stories of those who responded to Jesus as examples of faith. Colin Kruse ably shows how the Fourth Gospel weaves its themes of belief and unbelief into its rich Christology.

Colin Kruse is lecturer in New Testament, Bible College of Victoria, Melbourne. He also contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volume on The Letters of John.

Acts

  • Author: I. Howard Marshall
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 447

In the book of Acts, the story of Jesus begun in the Gospel of Luke broadens into the story of the Holy Spirit, guiding the fledgling church to proclaim the saving reality of Jesus. While attentive to Luke's roles as a literary artist and theologian, I. Howard Marshall focuses primarily on Luke's role as a historian. He provides the reader with an accurate, balanced and holistic picture of the church's monumental first years as it sought to fulfil Christ's mandate to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth.

I. Howard Marshall is Honorary Research Professor of New Testament, University of Aberdeen. His many writings include, Luke - Historian and Theologian, New Testament Interpretation,Biblical Inspiration, The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: 1 Peter, A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles (Marshall), and the 2005 ECPA Gold Medallion winner, New Testament Theology: Many Witnesses, One Gospel, among others.

Romans

  • Author: F. F. Bruce
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 283

Paul's epistle to the Romans changed the lives of many great Christian thinkers, including Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and Karl Barth. However, while Romans has been among the most influential books of the New Testament, it has also been the subject of some of the church's most heated debates. What is justification by faith? What is the relationship between law and grace? What is God's ultimate purpose for Israel? Without losing sight of the simplicity of the gospel, F. F. Bruce guides us along the difficult but rewarding paths of this great letter.

The late F. F. Bruce was Emeritus Professor, University of Manchester. During his distinguished career he wrote numerous widely used Commentaries and books including The Canon of Scripture and Paul: Apostle of the Free Spirit. He contributed to the New International Greek Testament Commentary Series (12 Volumes) (NIGTC) and to the acclaimed Word Biblical Commentary Series (WBC) with volumes on The Epistle to the Galatians and 1 & 2 Thessalonians, respectively. He also contributed to Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Dictionary and from 1962 to 1990, he was the general editor of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series.

1 Corinthians

  • Author: Leon Morris
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 238

The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of Paul's greatest evangelistic successes. Yet despite Paul's having founded the church there, it was full of contention and strife. Dissension ran the gamut from questions about leadership to incest. Some believers were taking fellow Christians to court. There were questions about marriage, celibacy, food offered to idols, public worship and spiritual gifts. In response Paul offered to them, and to us, some of his most profound thinking on the body of Christ, love, and the resurrection . Leon Morris, with his characteristic clarity and pastoral heart, sets the issues before us and offers perspectives on the letter's perennial relevance.

The late Leon Morris was Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia. He contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.)with his volumes on The Gospel according to Matthew and The Epistle to the Romans.

2 Corinthians

  • Author: Colin Kruse
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 217

Paul's long, complicated history with the Corinthian church culminates in this ardent defence of Christian ministry in general and of his own ministry in particular. Colin G. Kruse provides an insightful analysis that illuminates Paul's contrast of the old and new and covenants and his eloquent exposition of the ministry of reconciliation. He also charts a clear, plausible course through the maze of the literary history of Paul's correspondence with the Corinthian Christians.

Colin Kruse is lecturer in New Testament, Bible College of Victoria, Melbourne. He also contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volume on The Letters of John.

Galatians

  • Author: R. Alan Cole
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 242

In Galatians, the apostle Paul makes his most passionate and direct appeal for a gospel free of ethnic or ritual exclusion. Paul's gospel is that of salvation through Christ alone - in him there is 'neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus'. By placing Paul's discussion firmly within its historical context, R. Alan Cole illuminates the potency and power of Paul's message to the Galatian church.

The late R. Alan Cole was lecturer in Old Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney, and Trinity Theological College, Singapore.

Ephesians

  • Author: Francis Foulkes
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 187

Unlike Paul's letters to the Galatians or the Corinthians, the letter to the Ephesians contains almost no clues about the situation and issues its recipients faced. Nevertheless, the letter vividly depicts how God's will revealed in Christ reorients believers' lives toward unity, mutual respect, submission and love - in short, new life in Christ. Francis Foulkes expounds with clarity and ease the letter's central themes and emphases.

The late Francis Foulkes was Warden of St John's College, Auckland, New Zealand.

Philippians

  • Author: Ralph P. Martin
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 187

Paul's letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul's joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. He has 'learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want'. Ralph Martin shows how these themes flow from and emulate Christ's humility, lead to spiritual fellowship among believers, and contribute to spreading the gospel.

Ralph P. Martin is Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California; at Haggard Graduate School of Theology, Azusa Pacific University, California; and at Logos Evangelical Seminary, El Monte, California. His writing include the Dictionary of the Later New Testament and Its Developments and several volumes in the acclaimed Word Biblical Commentary (WBC) Series.

Colossians & Philemon

  • Author: N.T. Wright
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 199

Colossians presents a picture of Christ who is "the firstborn over all creation" and has disarmed and triumphed over the powers and authorities. The letter also appeals to its readers to seek humble maturity, a maturity not possible apart from the person and work of Jesus Christ. N. T Wright's stated goal is to "to give the text back to the reader uncluttered by a mass of glosses." In Philemon, Paul makes a personal appeal to a fellow believer to receive a runaway slave, Onesimus, in love and forgiveness. For Wright, it is "an acted parable of the gospel itself."

Nicholas Tom Wright, commonly known as N. T. Wright or Tom Wright, is the bishop of Durham and an important scholar of the New Testament. He has researched, taught, and lectured on the New Testament at McGill, Oxford, and Cambridge Universities, and has been named by Christianity Today as one of the top five theologians in the world. He is best known for his scholarly contributions to the historical study of Jesus and the New Perspective on Paul. His work interacts with the positions of James Dunn, E.P. Sanders, Marcus Borg, and Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury. Wright has written and lectured extensively around the world, authoring more than forty books and numerous articles in scholarly journals and popular periodicals. He is best known for his Christian Origins and the Question of God Series, of which four of the anticipated six volumes are finished.

1 & 2 Thessalonians

  • Author: Leon Morris
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 148

The apostle Paul's correspondence with the church at Thessalonica provides a valuable glimpse into issues confronting the community. Was Paul merely exploiting them for money? When will Christ return? What about those members who had already died? Would they receive Christ's blessings when he came again? As Leon Morris deploys his characteristic knowledge and wisdom in interpreting these two letters, he not only illuminates their original meaning and context but also shows how they bear on the church today.

The late Leon Morris was Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia. He contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volumes on The Gospel according to Matthew and The Epistle to the Romans.

The Pastoral Epistles

  • Author: Douglas Guthrie
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 251

In his letters to Timothy and Titus, the apostle Paul is concerned with church order, defending correct doctrine and passing on the faith. Donald Guthrie's introduction to the volume, along with a helpful appendix, provides a strong defence of Pauline authorship of the Pastoral Epistles, setting them in the distinct historical context of Paul's later ministry. Guthrie's commentary bears out the idea of faith seeking understanding: he has drunk deeply from the pastoral wisdom in these letters, and in turn he offers us a deeper understanding of Paul's message to the church.

The late Donald Guthrie was Vice-Principal and Lecturer in New Testament at London Bible College. His widely acclaimed reference work, New Testament Introduction is available for Logos.

 

Hebrews

  • Author: Donald Guthrie
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 281

Many aspects of the letter to the Hebrews are a mystery. Who wrote it? To whom? When? Under what conditions? Though the answers to these questions largely remain an enigma, the letter's place in the biblical canon stands as a testament to its inherent power and authority as a treatise on the nature of Jesus Christ. As such, Donald Guthrie skilfully situates the message of Hebrews in the space where the study of the New Testament meets the reality of the Christian life.

James

  • Author: Douglas Moo
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 196

"The Bible is being translated, commented on, read, studied, preached and analyzed as never before. But it is questionable whether it is being obeyed to a comparable degree," says Douglas Moo in the preface to his commentary on James. "All this suggests that the message of James is one that we all need to hear--and obey. No profound theologian, James' genius lied in his profound moral earnestness; in his powerfully simple call for repentance, for action, for a consistent Christian lifestyle. His words need to thrust through our theological debates, our personal preconceptions, our spiritual malaise and set us back on the road to a biblical, invigorating, transforming Christianity."

Douglas J. Moo is Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College Graduate School. Among his many books and Commentaries, his writings are included both in the Pillar New Testament Commentary Series (PNTC), and The New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) series.

1 Peter

  • Author: Wayne Grudem
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 239

In 1 Peter, explains Wayne Grudem, readers are encouraged to grow in their trust in God and their obedience to him throughout their lives, but especially when they suffer. "Here is a brief and very clear summary both of the consolations and instructions needful for the encouragement and direction of a Christian in his journey to Heaven, elevating his thoughts and desires to that happiness, and strengthening him against all opposition in the way, both that of corruption within, and temptations and afflictions from without," says Archbishop Robert Leighton in the introduction.

Wayne A. Grudem became Research Professor of Bible and Theology at Phoenix Seminary in 2001, after teaching at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School for 20 years. He has served as president of the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, as president of the Evangelical Theological Society (1999), and as a member of the Translation Oversight Committee for the English Standard Version of the Bible. He has written more than 60 articles for both popular and academic journals, and his books include: Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine, The Gift of Prophecy in the New Testament and Today, Pastoral Leadership for Manhood and Womanhood, and Business for the Glory of God. He has also co-edited Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A response to Evangelical Feminism and edited Are Miraculous Gifts for Today? Four Views.

2 Peter & Jude

  • Author: Michael Green
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 208

The Second Letter of Peter and the Letter of Jude both address false teaching—teaching that affects behaviour. The recipients had within their midst people whose lives contradicted the gospel that was preached. They defiled the love-feasts; they were themselves immoral and minimized the importance of law in the Christian life. They scoffed at the parousia and were fond of their own rhetoric. Michael Green offers a penetrating analysis that sets both letters in their historical context and shows their relevance to life today.

Michael Green is Chaplain for the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and was for many years a senior research fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.

The Letters of John

  • Author: John R. W. Stott
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 234

"John evidently loves the people committed to his care," says John Stott in the preface to this commentary on 1, 2 and 3 John. "They are his 'dear children,' his 'dear friends.' He longs to protect them from both error and evil and to see them firmly established in faith, love and holiness. He has no new doctrine for them. On the contrary, he appeals to them to remember what they already know, have and are. He warns them against deviating from this and urges them to remain loyal to it. Whenever innovators trouble the church, and ridicule whatever is old or traditional, we need to hear and heed John's exhortation, to continue in what we have learned and received, and to let it continue in us."

John R. W. Stott is Rector Emeritus of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London.

Revelation

  • Author: Leon Morris
  • Publisher: InterVarsity Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 256

Throughout the centuries the book of Revelation has been subjected to wildly different interpretations. Why? "Its symbolism belongs to the first century, not to our own age," says Leon Morris in the preface to his commentary. Here he explains the ancient metaphors and symbols—most important, a slain lamb—in ways that demonstrate their compelling significance for the church today.

The late Leon Morris was Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia. He contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volumes on The Gospel according to Matthew and The Epistle to the Romans.
