D. Edmond Hiebert - A thorough exposition of these epistles by a scholarly German professor of the past century. One of the justly celebrated older commentaries, with ample presentation of varying views on all important points. Dated but still of value for those familiar with the Greek or desiring the views of scholars of the past.

James Rosscup writes "Some regarded this in its day as the best work on the Greek text." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

D. Edmond Hiebert - Greek text. A noted critical study by a pioneer authority in the papyri Has much valuable material in the introduction and the added notes.

D Edmond Hiebert - While not as full as the author's excellent work on the Gospel of Luke, these volumes provide a critical exegetical unfolding of these epistles. Greek words are often quoted but generally in parentheses, so that the non-Greek reader can readily profit from these volumes.
