HENRY ALFORD
The New Testament for English Readers
1 Peter Commentary 1872
Recommended

Read his fascinating brief biography - Henry Alford and Phil Johnson's related comments

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament...though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works).

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (see his comments in following entry on Alford).

Editorial Note: If you are not proficient in Greek, you will find this work considerably more useful than the following work by Alford, because in this volume he translates the Greek and Latin into English. While the "The Greek New Testament" is longer (e.g., English version of 1John = 66 pages compared to Greek version = 94 pages in part because the latter includes comments of more technical nature), the substance of the commentary is otherwise similar to that found in the "NT for English Readers".

HENRY ALFORD
The Greek New Testament
1 Peter Commentary
Recommended

James Rosscup writes that "This was the great work in the life of the versatile Dean of Canterbury. An outcome of this production was the New Testament for English Readers (4 vols.). Alford was a Calvinist, conservative and premillennial, though not dispensational. He takes a literal interpretation of the thousand years in Rev. 20 and has a famous quote there, is strong on sovereign election as in Ro 8:29, 30 and 1Pe 1:2, but, unfortunately, holds to baptismal regeneration in such texts as Titus 3:5 and John 3:5. He shows a great knowledge of the Greek text and faces problems of both a doctrinal and textual nature." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

John Piper writes ""When I’m stumped with a...grammatical or syntactical or logical [question] in Paul, I go to Henry Alford. Henry Alford...comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon writes that this text "is an invaluable aid to the critical study of the text of the New Testament. You will find in it the ripened results of a matured scholarship, the harvesting of a judgment, generally highly impartial, always worthy of respect, which has gleaned from the most important fields of Biblical research, both modern and ancient, at home and abroad. You will not look here for any spirituality of thought or tenderness of feeling; you will find the learned Dean does not forget to do full justice to his own views, and is quite able to express himself vigorously against his opponents; but for what it professes to be, it is an exceedingly able and successful work. The later issues are by far the most desirable, as the author has considerably revised the work in the fourth edition. What I have said of his Greek Testament applies equally to Alford’s New Testament for English Readers,* which is also a standard work." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

ALBERT BARNES
Commentary Notes on the New Testament

James Rosscup writes that Barnes "includes 16 volumes on the Old Testament, 11 on the New Testament. The New Testament part of this old work was first published in 1832–1851. Various authors contributed. It is evangelical and amillennial...Often the explanations of verses are very worthwhile." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

C H Spurgeon "Albert Barnes is a learned and able divine, but his productions are unequal in value, the gospels are of comparatively little worth, but his other comments are extremely useful for Sunday-school teachers and persons with a narrow range of reading, endowed with enough good sense to discriminate between good and evil....Placed by the side of the great masters, Barnes is a lesser light, but taking his work for what it is and professes to be, no minister can afford to be without it, and this is no small praise for works which were only intended for Sunday-school teachers." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

JOHANN A BENGEL
Commentary on 1 Peter
Gnomon of the New Testament

Note: If not proficient in Greek, see related Critical English Testament below.

James Rosscup writes "This work (Gnomon), originally issued in 1742, has considerable comment on the Greek, flavoring the effort with judicious details about the spiritual life. It has much that helps, but has been surpassed by many other commentaries since its day." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

JOHANN BENGEL
The Critical English Testament
Commentary on 1 Peter

Note: Represents Combination of Bengel's Gnomon  and Comments by more modern expositors (in brackets) to make this more usable for those who do not read Greek.

Spurgeon comments on the goal to make Bengel's Gnomon (listed above) more accessible -- "Such is the professed aim of this commentary, and the compilers have very fairly carried out their intentions. The whole of Bengel’s Gnomon is bodily transferred into the work, and as 120 years have elapsed since the first issue of that book, it may be supposed that much has since been added to the wealth of Scripture exposition; the substance of this has been incorporated in brackets, so as to bring it down to the present advanced state of knowledge. We strongly advise the purchase of this book, as it...will well repay an attentive perusal. Tischendorf and Alford have contributed largely...to make this one of the most lucid and concise commentaries on the text and teachings of the New Testament" (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

CHARLES BIGG
International Critical Commentary
A Critical and Exegetical Commentary
1 Peter (1905)

Rosscup - This is probably the second best older study on 1 Peter from the standpoint of the Greek text. Selwyn is the other. As other ICC works, it deals with details of philology, grammar and possible views on problems. (Rosscup, J. Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An annotated bibliography of selected works)

The Living Church - His commentary is very satisfactory indeed. His notes are particularly valuable. We know of no work on these epistles which is so full and satisfactory.

American Journal of Theology - Canon Bigg’s work is preeminently characterized by judicial open-mindedness and sympathetic insight into historical conditions. His realistic interpretation of the relations of the apostles and the circumstances of the early church renders the volume invaluable to students of these themes. The exegetical work in the volume rests on the broad basis of careful linguistic study, acquaintance with apocalyptic literature and the writings of the Fathers, a sane judgment, and good sense.

JOHN BROWN
Commentary on 1 Peter — 1855 — In Depth >800 pages!

Doug Erlandson (Amazon Review) - John Brown's two-volume "1 Peter" is far more than a commentary. In fact, it is less a commentary than it is an exposition, or, as Brown himself called what he was doing, a "discourse." The result of a series of sermons preached to his congregation in Edinburgh over a period of 16 years in the early 1800s, the two volumes are divided into 24 discourses, each one on a few verses of the epistle. Written from a Reformed perspective, Brown provides a series of wonderfully perceptive theological and practical insights into the text. There are many good commentaries on the Petrine letters, but none equal what Brown has done in making the text come alive and providing a huge number of practical applications. The two volumes combined run approximately 1,200 pages, which will give some idea of the amount of material contained in them. Brown's "I Peter" is appropriate for the layperson as well as the serious scholar. It is above all an essential work for anyone planning on preaching on First Peter.

Spurgeon - The epistle is divided into paragraphs, and these are made the themes of discourses. Thus Dr. Brown produced what is substantially a commentary, and one of the best. It affords us a grammatical interpretation, together with an exposition, at once exegetical, doctrinal and practical. It is a standard work, and the indices increase its value.

Expository Notes on 1 Peter
Excellent

Rosscup - This book prints expositions from his series in Bibliotheca Sacra and Studia Missionalia. As in James, Heibert is vigorous in seeking to explain verses and sections, discuss views with an awareness of scholarly work, and use the Greek competently. It is a fairly good evangelical product. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An annotated bibliography of selected works).

ROBERT LEIGHTON, D. D.
Scottish Puritan (1611-1684)

A Practical Commentary Upon the First Epistle of St. PeterHighly Recommended

Note: This almost 1000 page commentary is obviously a treatise of considerable depth (eg, there are 27 pages on the second verse of chapter 1!) You may not be familiar with Leighton but you will not be disappointed by the piety and scholarship of his 2 volume work on First Peter (Volume I - Chap 1-2, 458pp, Volume II - Chap 3-5, 516pp). Leighton was born in 1611 but this work carries a publishing date of 1845.

Rosscup's Review - A thorough discussion of the text with an exceptionally warm devotional spirit. Among older works it is easily one of the most helpful. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An annotated bibliography of selected works).

Spurgeon - Dr. Henry Mills thus wrote of Leighton’s works:—“There is a spirit in them I never met with in any other human writings, nor can I read many lines in them without being moved.” We need scarcely commend this truly heavenly work. It is a favorite with all spiritual men.

A Few Anecdotes: He referred to his devotional exercises as "the dressing and undressing of his soul" It is well said of him "that prayer and praise were his business and his pleasure." In speaking of the Lord's Prayer, he used to say, "Oh! The spirit of this prayer would make rare Christians." Once pointing to his books, he remarked to his nephew "one devout thought is worth them all." It is said of him, that he seemed to be in a perpetual meditation, and would take occasion from any passing incident to give utterance to some pious reflection. His commentary on First Peter is his principal work. (Memoir of Robert Leighton)

      Excerpt - How do I apply this? Unjust or unforeseen suffering is one of the great problems that grips the hearts of people today. We struggle with frustration, anger, and uncertainty when trials strange and unexpected land on our doorsteps. Too often in those most difficult moments of our lives, confusion reigns while contentment wanes; questions arise while prayer subsides. How do you react when suffering comes? Many crumble at the mere thought of another pain or trial. Others rise to the occasion. Most of us are probably somewhere in between. Peter’s encouragement to his Christian readers is one of perseverance in faith. It isn’t enough for us to simply get up every morning and trudge through each day; neither is it advisable to paste a smile on our faces and ignore troubles. Instead, the lesson of 1 Peter is to push through the troubles, recognizing their temporary presence in our lives while walking in holiness and hope as people of faith. So press on! It is in the darkest times that our collective light shines brightest.

    • Epistles of St. Peter & St. Jude Preached & Explained by Martin Luther
    • Rosscup - The reader wanting to see how the great reformer handles these epistles will find a readable work with many judicious comments but one weak on some of the problems such as how to interpret the spirits in prison (3:19–21). Many commentaries are better overall. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An annotated bibliography of selected works).

    TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE
    R A Torrey
    1 Peter

    Note: The best commentary on Scripture is Scripture (Compare Scripture with Scripture) and these cross references compiled by Torrey are the most comprehensive work of this type with over 500,000 entries. However, always check the context (Keep Context King) to make sure that the cross reference is referring to the same subject as the original Scripture. The Puritan writer Thomas Watson said it this way - "The Scripture is to be its own interpreter or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture." See an example of the value of comparing Scripture with Scripture. See also Use of Cross-References

    DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
