Overview

The Social-Science Commentary series presents a pioneering alternative commentary genre that offers a contextual approach to the study of the New Testament, thoroughly grounded in the original audience’s first-century cultural setting. In this commentary on the Synoptic Gospels, the authors build on their earlier social-scientific work and enhance the highly successful commentary model they developed. This volume is a thoroughly revised edition of this popular commentary. It includes an introduction that lays the foundation for their interpretation, followed by an examination of each unit in the Synoptics, employing methodologies of cultural anthropology, macro-sociology, and social psychology.

    IT may provide culture thinking but I am not impressed it seems it tries to minimize many important Scriptures. I read the Sermon on the mount section. Though the goal is to look at culture only it seems yet moves to minimize God's Roll and Jesus Mission. Instead of adding the Sprititual thinking and ideas. It keeps it at Man level only. As Man is the only factor involved and God is not involved at all. I have always felt Matthew version of the sermon on the mount was the most important. Here ths so called thinking is that Lukes version is closer to the truth. Just bad feeling about the way the material is presented. What was shocking the most is teh way the Beatitudes were treated. using Poor as in money vice poor in Spirit and Religious thinking. I emphasis the Bible is the Word of God. This commentary does not appear to even come close but minimize God. Seems to follow some pattern of culture but overall I put it down as looking at the feelings of the people. and feelings of man vice the Glory of God and the Messages brought forth from the text. That is where I have issues with the writings.
