The Concordia Commentary series is designed to enable pastors, professors, and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the biblical text. This landmark work will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments, interpreting Scripture as a harmonious unity centered in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Every passage bears witness to the Good News that God has reconciled the world to himself through our Lord’s life, death, and resurrection. This scholarly commentary series fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture as it emphasizes “that which promotes Christ” in each pericope.
Each volume provides an original translation and meticulous grammatical analysis of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek text. Further light is shed on the passage from extrabiblical literature, ancient cultures, and archaeology. The author offers an exposition of the text’s meaning within its original historical context, highlights from its reception history, and a fresh theological interpretation that is eminently relevant today.
Authors are sensitive to the rich treasury of language, imagery, and themes that extend throughout Scripture from creation and the fall into sin to redemption, the return of Christ, and the eschaton. Attention is given to the biblical dialectics of Law and Gospel, sin and grace, death and new life, and the eschatological tension between the “now” and the “not yet” inaugurated by the arrival of the kingdom of God in Christ.
Finally, Scripture’s message is applied to the ongoing life of the church in terms of ministry, worship, proclamation of the Word, Baptism, the Lord’s Supper, confession of the faith, and worldwide mission—all in joyful anticipation of the life of the world to come.
