Never Take a Verse Out of Context Again

Seeing the thought flow of a given biblical text is essential to properly understanding its place within Scripture.

The Lexham Context Commentary: Old Testament is designed to guide readers through the literary context of the Bible, especially the contextual thought flow at each level of a book’s organization. Each book of the Old Testament is clearly outlined and structured, and commentary is provided on increasingly more specific segments of the text, from the book to its major divisions to sections to paragraphs to verses. Readers will gain quick access to the literary thought flow of a Old Testament book at whatever level they wish to dip in.

The Lexham Context Commentary: Old Testament covers several levels of OT context, from whole sections of the OT all the way down to individual verses. The upper levels for the entire OT were shipped at launch. The remaining content will be shipped once it’s completed.

 

Context is King

Traditional commentaries offer a wealth of information, but an explanation of the author’s flow of thought—how the parts relate to the whole—can get buried in detailed discussions of secondary literature, word usage, and historical background. The notes found in the Lexham Context Commentary deal with the text alone, leaving aside discussions of the opinions of other interpreters or of extra-biblical information from social, cultural, and historical background. The result is a concise, focused view of the biblical text that reveals the literary context of any given Old Testament passage.

  • Careful, Quick Summaries: Read a summary of any passage in the Old Testament, no matter the size—from major divisions to paragraphs to verses. The Lexham Context Commentary is like a heavily annotated outline of the entire Old Testament. Zoom in as close—or out as far—as you want, and you’ll get a short, reliable description of wherever you are.
  • Genre Introductions: Section introductions will acquaint you with the major genres of literature in the Old Testament, helping you read each book in keeping with what kind of book it is, from history to wisdom to prophets. Plus, a general introduction by Leland Ryken illustrates why the Bible should be read and interpreted as literature.
