The New International Commentary on the New Testament has been widely recognized for its attention to the text of Scripture, its currency with contemporary scholarship, and its service to the global church. While the interpretive work in these commentaries is based on study of the Greek text, readers need not be practiced in the biblical languages to benefit from them.
