EBTC

Every Page Is
the Long Story Short

The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary series reveals how every passage in the Bible fits into God’s drama of redemption—and the role you play in his story today.



“This commentary belongs on the desk of every preacher and in the library of every Christian.”

—R. ALBERT MOHLER JR., President,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
(on Psalms)


Now available for pre-order! Scholarly exegesis, biblical theology, and life application come together in a new commentary series on every book of the Bible.

A Divine Plot Told Through Human Stories

 

Exegesis, Meet Biblical Theology

The EBTC helps you understand the meaning of a biblical passage through careful exegetical analysis. But unlike other commentaries, it also reveals the theology within the text, connecting it to themes developed from Genesis to Revelation.

See the Old, Old Story with New Eyes

The books, stories, poems, letters, and laws in Scripture have unique theological themes. As you examine those ideas with the EBTC, you’ll see how they all come together to form a unified mosaic of God’s redemption, and you’ll discover a theology you can live out, every day.

Connect the Living Word to Daily Life

The EBTC is for pastors who want their listeners to understand the story arc of the Bible. It’s for parents who know each passage is useful for teaching—but aren’t sure how to teach Leviticus to an eight-year-old. It’s for any Christian who wants to understand how the biblical story from Genesis to Revelation connects to their daily life.


“Schreiner writes with clarity and precision that make his work a delight to read. This is an excellent example of exegetical and theological sensibilities brought together in one volume.”

—Darian Lockett, Associate Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, Biola University

WHY BIBLICAL THEOLOGY?

The Clarifying Power of
Biblical Theology

Typical commentaries use the tools of exegesis, carefully examining each verse in light of the surrounding context. But in so doing, they often lose sight of the big picture. How does this passage connect to other books by this author? Where does it fit within the canon of Scripture? What unique theological point was the inspired author making?

To answer these questions, the EBTC looks to biblical theology. This discipline is all about understanding and embracing the unique perspective of the biblical author. How did they understand themselves in the unfolding of redemption history? How are those beliefs present in their writings? And how might those themes point to fulfillment in Christ?

By combining exegesis with biblical theology, the EBTC doesn’t just help you see the forest for the trees; it reveals a breathtaking view of an entire biblical world most Christians have rarely explored.
