Overview

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.

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
