Examine the Greek New Testament in unparalleled depth with the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (ZECNT). This is the only commentary series with a theology in application section and identification of the main idea for each section. Each volume provides an exegetical outline with verse-by-verse commentary, designed to offer the most thorough examination of the text and themes of Scripture.

The aim of the series is not to review and critique every possible interpretation of a passage, but rather to exegete each passage of Scripture succinctly in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting with attention to grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting. These texts are written primarily for pastors and Bible teachers, but its attention to contemporary issues in the church makes it a focused resource for anyone teaching, preaching, or studying these passages.

Acts by Eckhard J. Schnabel won the Christian Book Award for best Bible Reference of 2013

    I very much like this series. I like how the commentators begin with a breakdown of the text into main ideas and subordinate thoughts; a technique I learned in Inductive Study. Then the sections are explained using the Greek text as well as English translation. I am very much looking forward to the Hebrews volume as well as I & II Peter and Jude.
