Lexham Geographic Commentaries

Geography is a central concern throughout Scripture, but the full significance of the geographical context is easily overlooked without a familiarity with the places, the relative distances, and the ancient setting. The Lexham Geographic Commentaries will not only place you in the sandals of the ancient writers of Scripture, but they will explain the significance of the geographic details in the biblical text for your life today.

Acts through Revelation

Lexham Geographic Commentary

on Acts through Revelation

The Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation delivers fresh insight by drawing attention to the geographical setting for the spread of Christianity in the first century AD. Luke’s account mentions places from all over the known world, and Paul’s missionary travels covered an estimated 15,000 miles by land and sea. This geographical context comes into focus with an understanding of the places, the types of transportation, the relative distances, and the travel conditions around the Mediterranean in the first century AD.

Lexham Geographic Commentary

on the Gospels

2019 Christianity Today Book Award Winner for Biblical Studies

The Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels delivers fresh insight by paying attention to an often overlooked component of the Gospel stories—their geographical setting. Many familiar Gospel narratives are filled with geographic details that we gloss over because of our distance from the Holy Land. Jesus’ parables and illustrations are often brimming with geographic clues, but the significance of these distinctive details is often lost on us today.
