   Excellent Resource for any student of the Bible
This book is a great resource for anyone interested in a deeper study of the Bible in both the Old and the New Testaments. There is some reference to the Greek language, but it does not require knowledge of the original language to understand the material. Each bookletter of the New Testament begins with a very good introduction to its specific purpose in being written, with emphasis on the links to the Old Testament Scriptures. Major themes are presented that help the reader gain a greater insight into the overall message of the book letter. For those who wish to dig a little deeper, there are many references to other Jewish commentaries and writings, as well as a comprehensive bibliography and the end of each article.

   A Must Have!
I have received this book already and I am just impressed. The book is over 1200 pages of solid scholarly output. At the end of each NT book is a bibliography of the sources cited on the way. The scholars are not afraid to consult their own translation of the Greek text while they are preparing other reliable versions of the Bible. I find this extremely helpful '', as one who is adept in NT Greek. DA Carson puts his scholarly touch on most Catholic letters. This volume represents the best of the NT scholarship in general. If you don't have this book in your collection and not making the most of it, you are depriving yourself of the best treatment on this subject, the use of the OT in the NT.

   I will turn to this time and time again.
It is located on a shelf within easy reach and I turn to it every time my studies in the New Testament bring me to a passage where the author cites from the Old Testament. The use of the Old Testaments is not always easy to understand. He is using the text to make a new point or does it point back to the direct meaning of the original? Does the NT author have a passage in mind or is he compiling passages? He is quoting the Hebrew text, the Septuagint, or can we not even know? Knowing how the New Testament authors used the Old Testament helps us better understand both, and this is a great tool for helping the Bible student understand this usage. This book should be placed on your shelf!

   The better the knowledge on Koine Greek the better the advantage
This is not a book that is really a handbook and a workbook. It should be paired with G. K. Beale, Handbook on New Testament use of the Old Testament, and keep Stanley E. Porter, Linguistic Analysis of Greek New Testament studies in tools, methods and practice handy. I teach digital hermeneutics at the under and graduated level and i have welcomed this tool in my biblical library. With 1281 pages of high-quality exegetical work, it is a tool to use and once again for consultation. In order to take advantage of this tool, the reader will need at least basic knowledge of NT Greek and exegesis. The better the knowledge is on the Greek Koine Greek side the better the advantage.

This review is based on reading the commentary on two verses in 1 Peter and is part of a class assignment at the Moody Graduate School. This commentary provides excellent background on verses in the New Testament that quote the Old Testament. In parts of the New Testament that seem to be mundane, they are revealed to deeper meaning when some are illuminated to be an allusion to the Old Testament. In parts that are quoted directly, the commentary indicates why the New Testament writer uses that quote and provides the context of the passage of the Old Testament, from which it derives. The commentary would be better served if it introduced the New Testament context after the Old Testament context, context in Judaism and textual criticism considerations. This would be a more chronological approach that would make the information more difficult to process in different contexts.

   An Abounding Blessing in One Source
It gives so much depth to the Scriptures that its first readers would have seen that is missing in the English. It is both scholarly and usable for anyone who wants to explore the depth and unity of the Bible. It is not perfect, but is totally worth the money. This commentary will either go down in history as a classic or inspire other writers to write ones that will.

   Paul Timm H17 Assugnment
This review is based on reading the commentary on two verses in 1 Peter 48 and 55 and is part of a class assignment at the Moody Graduate School. I own this commentary and agree with the explanation of 1 Peter 48 wholeheartedly with the explanation. Though I reached similar conclusions with this passage, I wonder if this exhortation by Peter is only hostile to those within the body or to anyone with whom they would come into contact during this particular time. I feel it would be all those they would come in contact with, but specifically to those within the body. The section 1 Peter 55 helped me greatly with a better understanding of the context of Proverbs 3 and how this translates into Peter's context. It added a whole new dimension to my pursuit of the wording of the meaning in 1 Peter 5.

   A wonderful resource with valuable insights.
This was an excellent commentary and in it you will find many parallels in the New Testament, similar to phrases in the Old Testament that Jesus used. The book is thick and it is packed with useful information, but I have not read it completely to date. I highly recommend '' the book.

   Epic!!!
His Revelation commentaries, long and short, should be read by all and could ignite reformation, deliverance from the dead Church Cartels ruining America and lead to new, real churches that believe and teach the Bible and see the salvation of Souls, transformed lives and a restored culture of life and unity and hope!
