“Steve Runge is not only one of the pioneers of discourse analysis of the Greek New Testament, but he is also a pioneer of a new type of New Testament commentary: one that is built on the rigorous observations of discourse analysis, and yet is packaged in a very accessible manner to be used by anyone wanting a helpful guide through the text.”
“The High Definition Commentaries are a perfect example of how scholars can simplify insights in a way that easily profits the pulpit and pew.”
The Power of Discourse Analysis
How would our understanding of the Greek text change if we read it for what it is? We can better identify an author’s intent by examining the linguistic and literary clues in the text. But you don’t need to know Greek to benefit from the discourse analysis in these commentaries! Each volume walks you through the linguistic devices used by the biblical book, explaining what these devices teach us. They give you a guided tour of the Greek text—minus the unnecessary details.
The High Definition Advantage
The High Definition Commentaries include professionally designed artwork to illustrate key ideas in the biblical text. The beautiful graphics in this commnetary help you better understand each passage for yourself, but they really excel for teaching others. They can help you explain key ideas using something other than a translation or a verbal description, and are perfect for use as sermon illustrations or Bible study aids.
