The Fortress Commentary on the Bible: The New Testament presents a balanced synthesis of current scholarship, enabling readers to interpret Scripture for a complex and pluralistic world.

The contributors bring a rich diversity of perspectives to the task of connecting solid historical critical analysis of Scripture with sensitivity to theological, cultural, and interpretive issues arising in our encounter with the text. The contributors represent a broad array of theological commitment—Protestants, Catholics, Jews, and others.

The introductory articles and section introductions in the volume discuss the dramatic challenges that have shaped contemporary interpretation of the New Testament. Individual book articles provide an introduction and commentary on key sense units that are explored through the lenses of three critical questions:

The Text in Its Ancient Context. What did the text probably mean in its original historical and cultural context?

The Text in the Interpretive Tradition. How have centuries of reading and interpreting shaped our understanding of the text?

The Text in Contemporary Discussion. What are the unique challenges and interpretive questions the text addresses for readers and hearers today?

The result is a commentary that is comprehensive and useful for preaching, teaching, and research.
