Luke Verse by Verse

The Gospel of Luke is an orderly historical account, but it is far from ordinary.

In the longest Gospel, Luke places great stress on the unique lordship of Jesus and God’s plan to bring salvation into this world. Throughout, Luke stresses that Jesus’ message reaches the forgotten people groups of this world, particularly the poor and women, showing us that the gospel is truly intended for all peoples.

In Luke Verse by Verse, Grant Osborne leads readers through this systematic account of Jesus’ life. He shows us why Luke may be called “the theologian of prayer” and unpacks the far-reaching power of the gospel then and now. With Osborne as guide, readers will learn what this Gospel, which introduces the Suffering Servant who has become the Risen Lord of all and reigns by his Spirit, can teach us today.

The Osborne New Testament Commentaries

Lexham Press is proud to announce a New Testament commentary series from respected biblical scholar Grant R. Osborne. His seminal work, The Hermeneutical Spiral, has become a standard for biblical interpretation, and as a culmination of his life’s ministry, he's bringing his academic acumen to an accessible, application-focused commentary.

The Osborne New Testament Commentaries interpret Scripture verse by verse, bridging the gap between scholarship and the Church. This set of commentaries is for people seeking a straightforward explanation of the text in its context, avoiding either oversimplification or technical complexity. Osborne brings out the riches of the New Testament, making each book accessible for pastors and all who consider themselves students of Scripture.

 

In addition to Luke Verse by Verse, three other volumes in the Osborne New Testament Commentaries are available in a four-volume collection.

Praise for the Osborne New Testament Commentaries

With this new series, readers will have before them what we—his students—experienced in all of Professor Osborne's classes: patient regard for every word in the text, exegetical finesse, a preference for an eclectic resolution to the options facing the interpreter, a sensitivity to theological questions, and most of all a reverence for God's word.

—Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor in New Testament, Northern Seminary

The Osborne New Testament Commentaries draw from the deep well of a lifetime of serious study and teaching. They present significant interpretive insights in a highly accessible, spiritually nurturing format. This is a tremendous resource that will serve a new generation of Bible readers well for years to come. Highly recommended!

—Andreas J. Kӧstenberger, Founder of Biblical Foundations™, senior research professor of New Testament & biblical theology, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
