The Hendriksen & Kistemaker New Testament Commentary (HK) series is composed for the benefit of serious Bible students and pastors who want the insight of quality evangelical scholarship communicated with clarity. Each volume offers fresh translation, repetition of the text before each exegetical unit, verse-by-verse comments and applications, critical notes on the Greek text, and chapter summaries. Extensive bibliographies and indexes of authors, Scripture, and other ancient writings enhance the usefulness of each volume.
Begun by William Hendriksen, the Hendriksen & Kistemaker New Testament Commentary (HK) series has earned the acclaim and respect of Reformed and evangelical scholars and pastors. Since Hendriksen's death in 1982, the series has been continued by Simon J. Kistemaker. Four of the volumes compiled by Kistemaker earned the Gold Medallion Award (Hebrews, James and the Epistles of John, Acts, and 1 Corinthians). The series was completed in 2001 with the publication of Revelation).
Please Note: In order to differentiate between the second person singular and the second person plural, the publisher indicated the former as follows: “you”; and the latter as follows: “y o u.” The digital edition follows this innovation.
If you own the New Testament Commentaries...nothing more needs to be said. If you do not own them, you should--that is, if you are a serious student of Scripture.

The Bible student who possesses [these] commentaries can dispense with many other books.

In the area of commentaries, four names which belong at the top of any man’s list find no mention at all. John Calvin, J.A. Alexander, Charles Hodge, and William Hendriksen represent a stream of scholarly, practical, and theological exposition of the New Testament from the reformation to the present. Any preacher who has worked without them should work through his same texts again with them.
