MAX ALDERMAN

CHARLES ALEXANDER

HENRY ALFORD Greek Testament Critical Exegetical Commentary

Charles Haddon Spurgeon - Alford's Greek Testament “for the use of Theological Students and Ministers,” 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. (Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

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".

There are also notes on the text dealing with textual, critical, and interpretative matters. The introduction, reworked by the editor, adds to the value of the volume. (An Introduction to the NT)

A W PINK

Caveat - Although Pink's expositions are often excellent, one must be aware that he frequently invokes typological interpretations which are somewhat "strained" in the opinion of other expositors. Therefore while the works of A W Pink are listed, the reader should keep a Berean mindset (Acts 17:11+) when using them. See also the notes on Pink under "Commentaries" and in the discussion of Supernaturalistic interpretation

B F WESTCOTT

D Edmond Hiebert review - One of the classical commentaries on John. Still richly rewarding in spite of its age. An admirable presentation of the conservative position. (An Introduction to the NT)

James Rosscup - This is a reprint of a 1908 work which used to be generally regarded as the classic commentary on John. Westcott, born in England in 1825, studied at Dublin and was called “in learning a second Origen, in piety a second Augustine.” He teamed with F. J. A. Hort to labor 28 years in producing the famous Greek New Testament. He was conservative and Calvinistic. His knowledge of Greek was extensive, and he uses Greek and Latin in his comments. This plus his involved thinking at times makes it rather difficult for many to follow him. This is a good work to consult in any thorough study of John, and the student who wants to build his library with the best will not pass it by. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)
