Overview

How can biblical exegesis be fruitful and meaningful when commentaries and lexicons provide contradictory interpretations, seeming to support opposing translations? An Exegetical Summary Series asks important exegetical and interpretive questions phrase by phrase, summarizing and organizing content from every major Bible commentary and dozens of lexicons. You can instantly identify exegetical challenges, discover a text’s interpretive history, and survey the scope of everything written about each verse and phrase.

Take your exegesis to the next level with the Logos edition of An Exegetical Summary Series! All commentary and lexicon references link to your digital titles, and Scripture references link to your Greek and Hebrew texts and your English translations. With the Exegetical Summaries Series and the power of your Logos digital library, you have the tools you need for exegesis and interpretation, research projects, sermon preparation, and Bible study.

Because volumes in the Exegetical Summaries Series use the original Greek and Hebrew directly in the text, the Logos editions receive extra lemma tagging of the Greek and Hebrew words. This makes it possible to narrow in on the commentary’s discussions of particular Greek and Hebrew words through the Passage and Exegetical Guides. Or, if you are simply reading through the commentary and come across an original language word that looks interesting, you can simply right click on it and initiate a Bible Word Study right from inside the commentary.

Individual Titles

An Exegetical Summary of John 10–21

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Each volume in the Exegetical Summaries series works through the original text phrase by phrase. English equivalents are provided for all Hebrew and Greek words, making this an excellent reference for exegetes of all levels.

Questions that occur to exegetes as they study the text are stated and then answered by summarizing the ways many scholars have interpreted the text. This information should help translators or students in making their own exegetical decisions.

As a basis for discussion, a semi-literal translation of the text is given. The first question to be answered is the meaning of key words in context. Information from standard lexicons is given and then translations of the word are cited from a dozen major Bible versions and from commentaries that offer their own translations of the text.

Questions about the grammar and discourse structure of the original languages are answered by summarizing the views of many commentators. When exegetical disagreements appear in the commentaries and versions, the various interpretations are listed.

This book is not intended to replace the commentaries that are consulted. Rather than being a stand-alone commentary, this book summarizes many important details of exegesis that should be considered in studying the biblical text.

Ronald Trail (PhD, Deccan College, 1968) is the author of four volumes in this series, and author or editor of a number of books on languages of India and Nepal. He has been a member of SIL since 1961.
