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.

“Jesus indicated that one should worry less about who a neighbor is than about being a good neighbor.” (Page 318)

“The scene changes, and the ‘humble’ of Luke 1:52 are visited (cf. 7:22). One should not romanticize the occupation of shepherds. In general shepherds were dishonest (Sanh. 25b) and unclean according to the standards of the law. They represent the outcasts and sinners for whom Jesus came. Such outcasts were the first recipients of the good news.” (Page 108)

“Clearly, Luke’s main point in retelling the parable must have been what it means to be a neighbor. Jesus and Luke sought to illustrate that the love of one’s neighbor must transcend all natural or human boundaries such as race, nationality, religion, and economic or educational status.” (Page 319)

“Rather he was emphasizing that neither the wise and understanding (10:21) nor the proud and ruling (1:51–52) practice being loving neighbors.” (Page 317)

“‘Peace’ refers here to the fullness of blessing which the Savior/Christ/Lord brings and is essentially a synonym for salvation (cf. Acts 10:36).” (Page 109)

    Generally speaking, I have enjoyed and found the NAC series very helpful. However, today I was surprised in the part of Luke 22:42 — “Yet not my will, but yours be done” and found next to nothing on it, which it could easily have a Ph.D. thesis/dissertation written on it. In a NAC volume, I would have expected something along the lines of two to three paragraphs, not two sentences that were basically cross references. Please let me know if I am being too critical here.
