The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship. Contributors—all of whom rank among the leading Christian scholars of the English-speaking world—write authoritatively on the portions of Scripture in which they specialize. This collection also includes an enviable scholar’s array of Bible translations and Greek and Hebrew resources for in-depth research.

Resource Experts
  • Provides contributions from today’s leading biblical scholars, including Gordon J. Wenham, David J. A. Clines, Peter C. Craigie, John E. Goldingay, Donald A. Hagner, John Nolland, James D. G. Dunn, and dozens of others
  • Incorporates Greek and Hebrew resources for in-depth research

  • Includes Greek and Hebrew text throughout; Hebrew also transliterated
  • Introduction—covers issues pertaining to the whole book, including context, date, authorship, composition, interpretive issues, purpose, and theology.

Each section of the commentary includes:

  • Pericope Bibliography—a helpful resource containing the most important works that pertain to each particular pericope.
  • Translation—the author’s own translation of the biblical text, reflecting the end result of exegesis and attending to Hebrew and Greek idiomatic usage of words, phrases, and tenses, yet in reasonably good English.
  • Notes—the author’s notes to the translation that address any textual variants, grammatical forms, syntactical constructions, basic meanings of words, and problems of translation.
  • Form/Structure/Setting—a discussion of redaction, genre, sources, and tradition as they concern the origin of the pericope, its canonical form, and its relation to the biblical and extra-biblical contexts in order to illuminate the structure and character of the pericope. Rhetorical or compositional features important to understanding the passage are also introduced here.
  • Comment—verse-by-verse interpretation of the text and dialogue with other interpreters, engaging with current opinion and scholarly research.
  • Explanation—brings together all the results of the discussion in previous sections to expose the meaning and intention of the text at several levels: (1) within the context of the book itself; (2) its meaning in the OT or NT; (3) its place in the entire canon; (4) theological relevance to broader OT or NT issues.

    It is worth it as others have commented. Wait for a sale. Even half off, its the best commentary around.

    The WBC is a work of art. Not affordable for everyone. Theology books remain on the expensive side especially if you are dealing with currency deals. Technically, sound scholarship, comprehensive and deeply insightful. It is a must have and a 'go to' commentary set that should be consulted first. Yes, I love it, and its my go-to series. Its my bench mark to which all others are being compared too. I do think some writers are stringer than others, even though, it remains an amazing commentary series. Be blessed using it!!

    can some tell me what the difference is between the "Logos Edition" and the "Logos Edition (group)"?

    As Laity, not Clergy, with no training in foreign or ancient languages, I need a Commentary with a lower level of technical explanation of the original language but with a sophisticated explanation of scripture. Word Biblical Commentary has been that for me starting when Logos released its first collection of WBC volumes. I am giving it only 4 stars because we were sold on the belief that WBC would offer volumes covering the complete Bible. There are only a few volumes short of being complete. However, I really miss that the book of Acts is not available and apparently the remaining books will not be offered. I still recommend this commentary set.

    Spectacular series. As someone with a Masters in Bible Exposition and a Ph.D. student, this is my go-to commentary, without question. Best series Ive seen. Its both accessible and incomprehensible in its depth.
