Hermeneia is unique in its quality of scholarship, critical approach, and full-length commentary. Designed for the serious student of the Bible, each volume in the Hermeneia series aims to lay bare the ancient meaning of a biblical work and utilizes the full range of philological and historical tools. The aim of each volume is to provide a full critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and the primary data upon which the discussion is based. The authors make full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages along with English translations of all comparative materials—Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian.

Now, Logos is pleased to offer this upgrade collection, which features the three most recent releases! This collection includes the commentary on Matthew 1-7 by Ulrich Luz, the commentary on Mark by Adela Yarbro Collins, and the new commentary on Acts by Richard I. Pervo. Anchored by a renowned board of editors, the monumental Hermeneia project has, over the last forty years, produced some of the most authoritative and influential commentaries on the Bible in the English-speaking world. These latest volumes are no exception.

As a critical commentary series, Hermeneia includes many discussions of the original language texts, and plenty of references to standard lexicons such as BDAG and reference grammars such as BDF. In the electronic edition, you can double-click a Greek or Hebrew word to look it up in a lexicon you may own. And specific citations of lexicons, non-canonical texts, and other works in your library are hotspots—just click to open up the cited work to the passage or article cited!

Praise for the Print Edition

Hermeneia must be regarded as the premier biblical commentary series in the English-speaking world today. While some other biblical commentary series have suffered from the uneven quality of the contributions, the individual volumes of Hermeneia are notable for their uniformly high caliber. The quality of scholarship throughout is first-rate. The Hermeneia commentaries have set a standard of excellence in biblical interpretation that future series will be hard-pressed to meet.

—Michael L. Barre, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

Hermeneia is offered to us just at the right moment, just as scholarship has reached a summation of a whole period of critical reflection. These commentaries, for the foreseeable future will be the benchmark and reference point for all future work. The series offers the very best available.

—Walter Brueggemann, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary

The Hermeneia commentaries are an excellent series, featuring many notable twentieth-century biblical scholars. Taken together Hermeneia represents some of the best recent biblical scholarship … I have no hesitation in recommending them for students.

Morna D. Hooker, University of Cambridge, Faculty of Divinity

Hermeneia is the great and successful enterprise to link together European and American exegetical traditions, methods, and insights. It is a must in every theological study in Europe.

—Eckart Otto, University of Munich

Hermeneia has established itself as one of the leading international technical commentary series. The depth and breadth of the various authors' grasp both of historical context and of contemporary literature make the volumes an unsurpassed resource for background, informing critique, insightful exegesis, and often stimulating exposition. Serious students of biblical texts will want to consult Hermeneia and where possible to have the relevant volumes close to hand.

James D. G. Dunn, University of Durham

For the study of both the Old and the New Testament the Hermeneia series has made its mark. The series should be welcomed by all scholars, students, pastors, and educated layfolk who are eager to learn more about the meaning of the Word of God.

Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J., The Catholic University of America, Emeritus

The Hermeneia commentary series is a distinguished contribution to New Testament scholarship. Some of its earlier volumes represent classic positions that must be taken into account by all other interpreters. The newer volumes enrich the usefulness of the series for serious scholars.

Luke Timothy Johnson, Emory University

The Hermeneia series has established itself among the most useful tools available for biblical research, whether by professionals or by laypersons. These commentaries present solid scholarship . . . fresh, even venturesome interpretations . . . the books are a pleasure to use.

—Wayne A. Meeks, Yale University, Emeritus

    All three volumes are top-notch, the price is right, and the Logos format is far better than print. I explain in more detail why I think this here:
