Jumpstart Your Research

The Lexham Research Commentary is your starting point for study and research. Each volume gives you the tools you need to find answers quickly. This commentary is designed to do the time-consuming work of searching through commentaries, journal articles, and monographs to find the information you need, saving you valuable time by curating all of the best literature in one place—it’s a commentary on the commentaries. The annotated notes on the various viewpoints and interpretive options within the text allow you to quickly synthesize a broad range of views on a particular passage. Dense, jargon-filled research is distilled into easy-to-understand comments. As you critically study the text, the contextual notes help you place the passage within the narrow context of the biblical book and the broader context of the entire canon.

The Lexham Research Commentary volumes on Ruth, Daniel, and Matthew are forthcoming. They will automatically download as they are completed.


The Lexham Research Commentaries were formerly known as the Lexham Bible Guides.

A Smart Way to Study the Bible

  • Find things fast. There’s no need to locate, read, and notate dozens of reference materials. Everything is in one spot. It’s concise enough to digest, but broad enough so you know everything’s covered.
  • See connections. The overview format leads you to research topics you may have never read about or heard of. This snapshot view of the text provides an ideal starting point for sermon preparation or academic research.
  • Gain perspective. You’ll get an overview of all the relevant issues related to a particular biblical passage, from exegetical topics like structure and genre, to interpretive issues presented by commentators. You’ll also find links to lexicons and commentaries for word studies in Logos, plus lots of links to related literature for further study. Everything is organized and summarized in one spot—only a click away.
  • Designed digital-first. These commentaries are written from the ground up to take full advantage of Logos’ platform. The interconnectivity of the Lexham Research Commentaries within the Logos library provides you with relevant, curated content at a click.

    Maths was not my strongest subject, but can someone explain why the "Resources Included" price is different to the Dynamic Price "Collection Value"

    I absolutely love these commentaries. I hope to eventually get the entire series!

    Is this series complete or will more books be added? If more books are added is that included if I purchased the while series on here, or will I have to buy them separately when they come out? Thanks, I bought the one on Ephesians, and I find it very useful. I'd love to get the whole series.

    I was looking at adding this but wondered even with the March Matchups sale why the price was so high. Then I noticed that it includes volumes not yet available. About 10 years ago I paid $757 for Logos' EEC series. As of today, only 13 of the 44 volumes are available. At this rate it will be at least another 20 years before I can access volumes that I have already paid for! Caveat emptor.

    I've found that this is one of the most useful reference commentaries out there. It accurately, so far as I've found, portrays the opinions of a survey of commentaries. The result is 1) quick main theme accessibility; i.e., I can see on which points people most often gravitate. Additionally, 2) I am able to take the information and turn to the commentaries that I believe most useful as a result. You need to read both liberal and conservative commentaries to get a good idea of what the author was attempting to communicate and the best application of that communication for today. This is a great tool to accomplish said task. I only wish that the cost was not quite so high so that I could own them all. However, as on that has done extensive research, I would say that the price is justified. Andrew is right that you need to purchase the other commentaries to get the link to the fulness of what they said, but I believe he is wrong that the commentary is useless without those additional resources. Libraries are available, and their general idea is accurately portrayed.

    Even with a decent base package, I was unable to access most of the resources recommended by the commentary. This makes the book pretty useless. I purchased one commentary to see the lay out and usefulness. It is great, if I could actually access the resources... Along with the pretty high price tag, it makes these not worth purchasing.
