Overview

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. The commentary walks through each New Testament book verse by verse, referencing potentially illuminating passages from the Talmud and Midrash and providing easy access to the rich textual world of rabbinic material.

Originally published between 1922 and 1928 as Kommentar zum Neuen Testament aus Talmud und Midrasch, Strack and Billerbeck's commentary has been unavailable in English until now.

Volume 3 is scheduled to ship on November 3, 2021. Volumes 1 & 2 will ship once they are complete.

Praise for the Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Midrash

One can only hope that Strack and Billerbeck’s comprehensive Commentary will now receive the newfound appreciation it so richly deserves.

—Christfried Böttrich, professor in New Testament, Universität Greifswald, Germany

Strack–Billerbeck marked the culmination of nearly four hundred years of Christian engagement with Talmud and Midrash, the classic sources of Rabbinic thought. If used with discrimination it opens a door, in a way that no other work does, into the intense dialogue between early Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism.

—Philip Alexander, emeritus professor of post-biblical Jewish literature, University of Manchester, England

Everyone interested in the Jewish context of New Testament literature will welcome the appearance of the English translation of Strack and Billerbeck’s classic commentary that provides myriads of parallels with rabbinic literature. As an added bonus, David Instone-Brewer’s introduction very helpfully clarifies the proper use of this valuable tool and at the same time answers the criticisms leveled against it in its original German form.

—Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University

I have long wished for an English translation of Strack-Billerbeck.

—Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

Strack-Billerbeck, the essential tool for rabbinic opinion relative to the New Testament, has been accessible only to scholars or others who could read German. That obstacle has been eliminated with this new English translation, an achievement that will certainly position it as the essential tool in the English language for discovering ‘what the rabbis taught’ in regard to the content of the New Testament.

—Michael S. Heiser, executive director, Awakening School of Theology; host of the Naked Bible Podcast

    This is a must-have, and at a ridiculously low price. If you don't believe me, try picking up a used set, in German! If you can even find one.

    Can I suggest that Logos advertise this prepub? This is an extremely important resource and I had no idea that Logos was working on a version of it. Given the interest in the Judeo Christian understanding of the NT the interest is there. If you were to let more people know about this I think you would see more interest in it. Additionally, I've seen Logos make certain products popular because Logos decides they are important and market it until they get the interest needed. This is an invaluable resource for students, academics and others. Please don't let this fall to the wayside. Thank you for all that you do!

    I'm afraid the publication may not be as interesting as it may seem at first view because of its age. If we don't know the developments for the study of Jewish writings since the beginning of last century, more particularly the critics made to the compilation, and are not able to discern what still stand and what has been abandoned by scholars since the publication of the books, it may just give us an inexact vision and exegesis... An interesting article to read could be: https://openoureyeslord.com/2013/03/26/buy-strack-and-billerbecks-commentary-but-beware-technical-article/

    I have noticed that this work's production status has reverted back to a red "gathering interest" line from "almost there". Does anyone know of an explanation for this??
