Overview

Examine the Pauline epistles in a variety of ways—grammatically, critically, and exegetically. Bishop Charles J. Ellicott approached these texts with a great reverence and a keen eye. Because of this, his commentaries on Paul’s epistles have remained classics.

Each commentary consists of the Greek text, a synopsis of the contents of each paragraph, special notes on the textual criticism of passages that require more than just a list of authorities, and a series of footnotes containing various readings together with the author’s own exegesis with alternative interpretations, including the reasons for and against each interpretation. At the end of each volume are new translations of the epistle, with footnotes indicating all important deviations from the established version, including numerous citations from other versions. The translation is not a paraphrase, but is designed to give the precise English words and idioms which the author regards as synonymous, or nearly synonymous, with the words and idioms of the original.

Any study of Paul’s writings will benefit from this detailed work from a significant historical perspective.

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality.
