Overview

The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament provides innovative scholarly examinations of the Greek New Testament. It 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 succintly 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 offer a focused resource for anyone teaching, preaching, or studying these passages.

This upgrade to the collection includes four of the latest additions to the series—Luke by David Garland, Colossians and Philemon by David Pao, 1 and 2 Thessalonians by Gary Shogren, and the 2013 Christian Book Award winner, Acts, by Eckhard J. Schnabel.

Luke is the fifth release in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series. Luke sought to assure believers about the truth of the gospel (1:4) and to advance their understanding of God’s ways in the world as revealed in Christ’s ministry, death, and resurrection. Luke wrote as a historian, theologian, and pastor, and Garland’s commentary strives to follow suit in assisting those who will preach and teach the text and those who seek to understand it better. The commentary presents a translation through a diagram that helps visualize the flow of thought, provides a summary of the central message of the passages, reveals how they function within the gospel, and offers an exegetical outline with a verse-by-verse commentary that takes notice of Jewish and Greco-Roman background evidence that sheds light on the text. Christians interpret the Bible to make sense of their lived experience. This commentary highlights theological emphases of each passage and applies them to the everyday struggles of faith and practice.

David E. Garland is William B. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures and dean for academic affairs at George W. Truett Seminary, Baylor University. He is the New Testament editor for the revised Espositor’s Bible Commentary and the author of various books and commentaries, including Mark and Colossians and Philemon in the NIV Application Commentary and the article on Mark in the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary.

1 and 2 Thessalonians

  • Author: Gary Shogren
  • Editor: Clinton E. Arnold
  • Series: Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament
  • Publisher: Zondervan
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 384

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

1 and 2 Thessalonians treats the literary context and structure of the passage in its original Greek, as well as an original translation based on the literary structure. Critical scholarship informs each step but doesn’t dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on Paul’s message to the Thessalonians as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find this book beneficial.

What makes Shogren’s contribution to 1 & 2 Thessalonians so necessary is that he delves into the technicalities of the text without leaving the reader there—a rare find in modern day Christian scholarship. This commentary is chock-full of practical, pastoral, and theological insights . . . Shogren demonstrates how these down to earth truths flow right out of a close analysis of the text. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to discern the voice of God in the text of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. I believe that pastors especially will find this commentary to be helpful on both the technical and pastoral level. If you read through this commentary prayerfully with an open Bible you will find your head stimulated and your heart challenged and satisfied.
