Since a commentary is a fundamental tool for the expositor or teacher who seeks to interpret and apply Scripture in the church or classroom, the NAC focuses on communicating the theological structure and content of each biblical book. The writers seek to illuminate both the historical meaning and contemporary significance of Holy Scripture.

In its attempt to make a unique contribution to the Christian community, the NAC focuses on two concerns. First, the commentary emphasizes how each section of a book fits together so that the reader becomes aware of the theological unity of each book and of Scripture as a whole. The writers, however, remain aware of the Bible’s inherently rich variety. Second, the NAC is produced with the conviction that the Bible primarily belongs to the church. We believe that scholarship and the academy provide an indispensable foundation for biblical understanding and the service of Christ, but the editors and authors of this series have attempted to communicate the findings of their research in a manner that will build up the whole body of Christ. Thus, the commentary concentrates on theological exegesis, while providing practical, applicable exposition.

Top Highlights

“Acceptable standards of modesty will vary with place and generation, but Paul wanted the women to cultivate the fear of God rather than vanity.” (Page 96)

“It is better to see Paul having demanded that the church leader be faithful to his one wife. The Greek describes the overseer literally as a ‘one-woman kind of man’ (cf. ‘faithful to his one wife,’ NEB). Lenski suggests that the term describes a man ‘who cannot be taken hold of on the score of sexual promiscuity or laxity.” (Pages 109–110)

“The purpose and goal of Paul’s apostleship was to encourage both ‘the faith of God’s elect’ and ‘the knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness.’” (Page 264)

“The aim of the content of the sacred writings is to relate God’s saving purpose in Christ.” (Page 234)

“A mere profession of faith does not guarantee the actual possession of eternal life.” (Page 129)
