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.

“They described their food supply as ‘miserable’ (haqqĕlōqēl, ‘worthless, contemptible’), thereby deploring and degrading that which God had so graciously given to them for some forty years. When a person’s heart is intent on rebellion and beset by discontent, even the best of gifts from the Lord can lose their savor; nothing will fully satisfy until the heart is made right.” (Page 347)

“The verb translated ‘look’ (rāʾâ) often carries with it the idea to see with belief or understanding, and it is to be so interpreted in this context.” (Page 349)

“The central and unifying theme of the Book of Numbers is the faithfulness of God to fulfill his promise to his people, even when they rebel against him.” (Page 42)

“The Lord continued to demonstrate, as he continues to do today, his essential benevolent nature, fulfilling his promise to supply the needs of his people. Even the failure of his leaders would not thwart his will to bless his people. The rebellious, however, would fail to fully experience the abundance of his blessing.” (Page 329)

“When one demonstrates the attitudes of humility and servanthood, God’s presence and blessing are realized most fully.” (Page 326)

    An excellent investment... each of the Pentateuch volumes is among the best on those books. They are technical enough to address virtually any question one might ask about the text, while not exceeding attention spans with tedious details.
