Familiarity with the background of the New Testament prevents readers from misunderstanding the allusions and references that run throughout it. Historical events, social customs, religious beliefs, figures of speech, turns of phrase, and institutions all contribute to how the Bible’s first readers would have understood the Scriptures. These three volumes guide readers through each book of the New Testament verse-by-verse while exploring the historical, cultural, and economic setting of the New Testament writings. The Bible Knowledge Background Commentary is a powerful reference work that will enhance broader New Testament commentaries.

For more verse-by-verse commentary check out The Bible Knowledge Commentary.
