Hermann L. Strack and Paul Billerbeck’s Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Midrash is an important reference work for illustrating the concepts, theological background, and cultural assumptions of the New Testament.

Originally published in 1928 as Kommentar zum Neuen Testament aus Talmud und Midrasch, Strack and Billerbeck’s commentary has been unavailable in English until now.

The fourth volume focuses on individual New Testament passages and discusses their New Testament theology and archaeology. The 30 excurses deal with early Jewish festivals, social and religious groups, teachings, sacraments and other early Jewish topics.

    Hmmm. Thought this was further along last year. Let us pray: that interest and processing speed (and accuracy) would pick up on this publication. So far, I like the previous volumes.
