Details

This commentary series is established on the presupposition that the theological character of the New Testament documents calls for exegesis that is sensitive to theological themes as well as to the details of the historical, linguistic, and textual context. Such thorough exegetical work lies at the heart of these volumes, which contain detailed verse-by-verse commentary preceded by general comments on each section and subsection of the text.

An important aim of the NIGTC authors is to interact with the wealth of significant New Testament research published in recent articles and monographs. In this connection the authors make their own scholarly contributions to the ongoing study of the biblical text.

The text on which these commentaries are based is the UBS Greek New Testament, edited by Kurt Aland and others. While engaging the major questions of text and interpretation at a scholarly level, the authors keep in mind the needs of the beginning student of Greek as well as the pastor or layperson who may have studied the language at some time but does not now use it on a regular basis.

Author Bio

F. F. Bruce (1910–1990) was one of the founders of the modern evangelical understanding of the Bible and served as the Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis at the University of Manchester. After teaching Greek for several years, first at the University of Edinburgh and then at the University of Leeds, he became head of the Department of Biblical History and Literature at the University of Sheffield in 1947. He studied at University of Aberdeen, Cambridge University, and the University of Vienna.

Bruce wrote over 40 books, including New International Bible Commentary, Paul: Apostle of the Free Spirit, The Epistle to the Galatians: New International Greek Testament Commentary, Romans in Tyndale Commentaries, and The Book of Acts, The Epistles to the Colossians, to Philemon, and to the Ephesians, and The Epistle to the Hebrews in The New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT).
