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
  • Contains author translations
  • 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.
  • General Bibliography—occurring at the end of each volume, this extensive bibliographycontains all sources used anywhere in the commentary.

    I had added to the WBC for several years, as the entire set was too expensive. Thank you for putting this on sale at an affordable price. That being said (and I took this from Daniel Berryhill see below comment): It is missing 3 volumes or 4 books of the NT: 37 (Acts never printed; forth-coming), 39 (1 Corinthians never printed; forth-coming), and 44 (Colossians and Philemon; out of print; no digital version available). Any idea when these volumes will be available?????

    I recently purchased this series while on sale. I am pleased so far with the quality, content, and depth. However this is an incomplete set. It is missing 3 volumes or 4 books of the NT: 37 (Acts never printed; forth-coming), 39 (1 Corinthians never printed; forth-coming), and 44 (Colossians and Philemon; out of print; no digital version available).

    I've been a Logos user (first introduced to me during my Christian University education in the early 2000s). The WBC has always been a source of thoughtful and compelling exegesis that I know I can always rely on to enrich my Bible study and spiritual walk. I've been adding to my Logos/Faithlife resource library since that time and am happy to have finally completed my WBC library at such a great price. Thank you Faithlife.
