Overview

The Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation delivers fresh insight by drawing attention to the geographical setting for the spread of Christianity in the first century AD. Geography is a central concern in Acts, but the full significance of its geographical context is easily overlooked without a familiarity with the places, the types of transportation, the relative distances, and the travel conditions around the Mediterranean in the first century AD. Luke’s account mentions places from all over the known world, and Paul’s missionary travels covered an estimated 15,000 miles by land and sea. The Lexham Geographic Commentary gives you insight into the importance of all of these locations—both culturally and spatially—and provides a deeper understanding of the spread of early Christianity.

This resource is the text component of the Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation, and is only sold bundled together with the media.

Just what Bible readers, pastors, and professors need! An abundance of images, excellent scholarly descriptions and narratives, and first-rate scholarship all bundled into an accessible format. I will not study any from Acts to Revelation without having this volume at my side.

–Rev. Canon Dr. Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary

The Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation is a worthy sequel to the award-winning Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels.

–Douglas J. Moo, Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College

This volume fills a glaring lacuna in commentary literature by providing an in-depth and up-to-date discussion of the growth of the early Christian movement within its geographical contexts. Not only does it illuminate the reading of a vast number of biblical passages, it also bridges the gap between the subdisciplines of human and physical geography in presenting a strong case for the proper recognition of geography as a significant hermeneutical category. In so doing, it enriches our understanding of the nature of God’s redemptive history that unfolds within a particular space and time. Biblical scholars and theologians alike have much to learn from this volume.

–David W. Pao, Professor of New Testament and Chair of the New Testament Department, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Geography and history are important! The Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation shows how they provide the framework for New Testament events and writings, and it gives discussions and insight that do not appear in most commentaries. The pictures of places and archaeologically significant data are very helpful, as are the bibliographical resources accompanying the articles.

–Klyne R. Snodgrass, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, North Park Theological Seminary
