COMMENTARIES THAT CAN BE BORROWED FROM ARCHIVE.ORG

Explanation - The following list includes not only commentaries but other Christian works by well known evangelical writers. Most of the resources below are newer works (written after 1970) which previously were available only for purchase in book form or in a Bible computer program. The resources are made freely available by archive.org but have several caveats - (1) they do not allow copy and paste, (2) they can only be checked out for one hour (but can be checked out immediately when your hour expires giving you time to read or take notes on a lengthy section) and (3) they require creating an account which allows you to check out the books free of charge. To set up an account click archive.org and then click the picture of the person in right upper corner and enter email and a password. That's all you have to do. Then you can read these more modern resources free of charge! I have read or used many of these resources but not all of them so ultimately you will need to be a Berean (Acts 17:11+) as you use them. I have also selected works that are conservative and Biblically sound. If you find one that you think does not meet those criteria please send an email at https://www.preceptaustin.org/contact. The resources are listed in alphabetical order by the author's last name and some include reviews of the particular resource. For hundreds of other commentaries and books that can be borrowed see Christian Commentaries Online


NOTE - THESE ARE IN NO SPECIFIC ORDER - AS WITH ALL COMMENTARIES - BE AN Acts 17:11+ BEREAN - IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO DO YOUR OWN STUDY UNDER THE TUTELAGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (See inductive Bible study and especially the skill/discipline of Observation) BEFORE YOU CHECK THE COMMENTARIES. THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO INTELLIGENTLY "COMMENT ON THE COMMENTARIES!"

Luke 1-5 Commentary - John MacArthur

Preaching Luke-Acts by Allen, Ronald J.

James Rosscup - This conservative commentary is a detailed work in the Greek and is well-written. The author did the famous Greek-English lexicon and two books on alleged contradictions.

Bible commentary: the Gospel according to St. Luke by Arndt, William F

Poet and peasant : a literary-cultural approach to the parables in Luke by Bailey, Kenneth 

James Rosscup - Bailey discusses four Lukan parables at length in the first book, making a great contribution as to cultural data that opens up the parables. His data is based on studies while teaching for many years in the mid-East, also on extensive travels, correspondence, and scholarly probing into the literature. Particularly insightful are his remarks on Luke 15 (the triad of parables) and Luke 11 (Friend at Midnight). The second book continues to be rich in peasant cultural background, with data not available to many who study the parables. But the second book treats ten further parables (7:36–50 and others in 9:51–19:48, Luke’s travel narrative). These are well-done but not treated in as much detail. Both books are excellent in making parables “come alive” and making readers think. In more recent years both volumes have been put into one book. Cf. Hultgren in the Matthew section.

Luke comes alive! by Blanchard, John, 

Patterns for power : parables of Luke by Briscoe, D. Stuart

Saint Luke by Caird, G. B.

Cyril Barber - One of the better works in this series. Contains numerous references to Jewish literature as well as pertinent comments on the text. Is of value to the preacher. Needs to be read with discernment

Luke by Evans, Craig A., The New International Commentary on the New Testament

James Rosscup - A lucid study, often of help on problem texts but cursory at times. Evans gives authorship by Luke “provisional acceptance” and feels that this issue is not vital to how this gospel is interpreted (3). After a brief introduction (1–16), general summaries of each section are followed by added notes on a few key details, with bypassing of many, such as Anna’s 84 years in 2:36–38, and problems of interpretation in 11:5–7. While Evans shows high expertise even when terse, one will find other works explaining far more to make their time fruitful.

The Bible Knowledge Background Commentary : Matthew-Luke by Evans, Craig A -  This resource will give you interesting insights and is worth checking on individual passages

NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible. bringing to life the ancient world of scripture Keener, Craig and Walton, John. Editors (2017)

The Gospel according to Luke (I-IX) The Gospel according to Luke : introduction, translation, and notes (X-XXIV) by Fitzmyer, Joseph A

James Rosscup - An internationally known Catholic scholar presents an excellent appraisal of “The Current State of Lukan Studies” (3–34) and has “A Sketch of Lukan Theology” (143–270). In explaining the gospel text, Fitzmyer has often helpful sources on various points. This will rank as one of the best-regarded commentaries at this time from the standpoint of awareness of critical literature and comments reflecting current learning. He gives his own translation and a fairly lucid, detailed exposition that is abreast of language, background, and views. It is a mixed bag with Fitzmyer, though. He often takes views that evangelicals appreciate, such as Jesus’ resurrection body being able to eat food. At other times he stumbles where there are possible solutions, as when he feels that there is no way to harmonize the accounts of Jesus’ resurrection. Indices to both volumes help find material.

The Gospel of Luke by Green, Joel B. New International Commentary on the New Testament 143 ratings

James Rosscup - Replaces the work of Geldenhuys (1951). Scholars will appreciate the author’s emphasis on literary and narrative criticism. Pastors, however, will have little to gain from this work.

Tim Challies - Most commentators on the commentaries commend this volume, D.A. Carson among them, though he offers caveats. He says it is “full of thoughtful interaction with contemporary scholarship, but I do not think it is either as rigorous or as accurate as the work of Luke.” He suggests that its unique strength is narrative historiography and discourse analysis. If you, like me, don’t know what that means, then perhaps choose one of the other volumes

James Rosscup - This work with pp. i-xcii plus 928 replaced Norval Geldenhuys’ effort of 1951. Green puts more focus on literary criticism, narrative criticism, and social-scientific analysis than on earlier issues about historical critical matters, redaction and source criticism, etc. One sees topics such as family allegiances, friendship, purity, and status. He seeks to show OT background for this gospel, and not Mark, or Matthew, or oral tradition. Green sets up a misleading opinion that Luke and those using his work were “not so much concerned with the issue, Did it happen? as with the queries What happened? and what does it all mean? (36). It surely is both. However, he does appear to believe that the details are fact in Luke’s perspective, but thinks Luke is more burdened with how to understand things (20). One can say that Luke saw the two in a necessary balance and need not have any thought of ranking them.

Commentary on the Gospel of Luke : the English text with introduction, exposition and notes by Geldenhuys, Norval, 

James Rosscup - Amillennial in its interpretation of the kingdom program, this work is solid and explains many verses rather well but is not the best.

Half-hours with William Hendriksen : stirring devotional surveys of Romans, Philippians, Luke and Revelation, with other gems by Hendriksen, William, 

Luke : a self-study guide by Jensen, Irving

The Communicator's Commentary - Luke (Also known as The Preacher's Commentary Series - Volume 26: Luke) Larson, Bruce - 356 pages (1983) See user reviews

The Parables of Jesus by Kistemaker, Simon J.,

James Rosscup - A past national president of Evangelical Theological Society deals with all of Jesus’ parables and shows a lucid style, warmth, and broad acquaintance with scholarly writings on his material which is obvious in footnotes. He uses the NIV text. The contribution is very good on background, the main thrust of parables, key expository details, and the practical contribution for life. This is one of the best fairily recent evangelical works on the parables in general (cf. Bailey, Ellisen, Hultgren, Longenecker, etc, under Matthew and Luke).

According to Luke : a new exposition of the Third Gospel by David Gooding   9 ratings

What are they saying about Luke? by Powell, Mark Allan, 6 ratings

James Rosscup - A well-researched, contemporary assessment of the teaching of Luke's gospel. Summarizes the contribution of modern scholars, and examines the dominant theories regarding the composition of the gospel. Intertwines political and social aspects of Luke's "former work" to describe the community about which the physician wrote.

AND SERMONS

HENRY ALFORD- Commentary

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)

DARRELL L BOCK - IVP Commentary - IVP NT Commentary Series 428 pages  16 ratings

Rosscup comments: Evangelical comments run quickly to their points, yet the generality causes skipping some key details (cf. on Anna, Lk 2:36-38) or seem to argue around a more likely view with unconvincing reasoning (Lk 3:16). In other cases, Bock seems to select the most probable view, an instance being in seeing the sermon (Luke 6) as a condensed version of the same sermon in Mt 5–7. One can also find the second and third soils of Luke 8 taken to represent people not actually saved (148–49). One can wonder in Lk 14:34–35 how inability to be worthy disciples is in harmony with salvation as a gift, for the work passes by this. Bock in most verses touches clearly on key issues and… lacks space to deal with every important matter… For a work with much application, cf. Darrell Bock, Luke (NIV Application Commentary. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1996). (Rosscup, J. Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

Cyril Barber - A well-researched, well-outlined, and well-written commentary that is easy to read. Uses the text of the NIV. Adequately explains the theological themes relating to the life and mission of Christ. Recommended.

FREDERIC GODET - Commentary

Spurgeon has these comment on Godet: Dr. Meyer says: “To an immense erudition, to a living piety, Godet unites a profound feeling of reality; there is here a vivifying breath, an ardent love for the Saviour, which helps the disciple to comprehend the work, the acts, the words of his Divine Master.” (Spurgeon - Commenting on Commentaries)

Cyril Barber - An exhaustive, technical commentary that ably defends the cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith while expounding the text. Deserves a place on the shelf of every pastor. 

D Edmond Hiebert - An exhaustive, technical commentary by a conservative French theologian of the past century. Godet's theological and critical conservatism is clearly revealed in this work on Luke. Of abiding value in spite of its age.

Rosscup comments: Though old, this work is almost exhaustive in dealing with interpretive problems and shows a wide acquaintance with commentators of all ages up to his day. He is regarded by Greek authorities as weak on textual criticism but strong on exegesis. (Rosscup, J. Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

LEON MORRIS - Tyndale New Testament Commentary - borrow this resource

Matheson (Ligonier) - Christians should pick up and read anything they find by the late Leon Morris. For those who may not have the time to dig into a 2,100-page commentary and are looking for a great introductory-level commentary on Luke, Morris is the place to begin.

Cyril Barber - A clear, forthright presentation of the facts surrounding the authorship and date of this gospel, followed by almost 300 pages of exposition. A handy and helpful volume.

James Rosscup - Morris has written a good conservative commentary of some detail. It is lucid and not technical in nature.

Tim Challies - The inherent and deliberate limits of the Tyndale New Testament Commentaries means that this volume is relatively short (370 pages) and written at a popular level. This is the entry-level commentary for those who would like just one volume on Luke. Morris has written commentaries on many books of the Bible and they are uniformly sound even if they are rarely considered the top of the class.

WARREN WIERSBE - Always worth checking for preaching/teaching points.

Rosscup - One of America’s most appreciated staunchly evangelical Bible conference teachers gives diligent, refreshing expositions. These are all of his 23 separate, earlier books in the “Be” series on the New Testament. He strikes a particular appeal with lay people as he crystallizes sections, deals with some of the verses, handles certain problems and backgrounds and applies principles. He is premillennial.

Cyril Barber - Together these volumes treat the gospel of Luke. Wiersbe, who is a pastor's pastor, outlines and expounds the text with exemplary skill. These books are ideal for individual or group Bible study.

Cyril Barber - This is a book (referring to Wiersbe's Expository Outlines) of exceptional merit. Pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers will profit from its use. Wiersbe introduces each book of the NT, provides an outline, and then furnishes his readers with a chapter-by-chapter discussion of the contents. The homiletic style is a “plus.” Recommended.

WYCLIFFE BIBLE COMMENTARY - Merrill C Tenney authored the Gospel of Luke. Scripture in left column, comments in right column

James Rosscup - Tenney is limited in his space, but usually makes good use of it to explain verses so as to provide help. He is conservative and premillennial. Sometimes he is quite clear, other times one can only guess what he means when he is vague, as when he says that “the kingdom of God is nigh at hand” (Lk 21:29) are words complementary to Lk 17:21, “The kingdom of God is within you” (p. 1063). Overall he offers a fairly good commentary for those wanting a brief study with considerable competence behind it.
