The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) series locates each biblical book within redemptive history and illuminates its unique theological contributions. All EBTC volumes feature informed exegetical treatment of the biblical book and thorough discussion of its most important theological themes in relation to the canon—all in a style that is useful and accessible to students of Scripture and preachers of the word.
The EBTC reveals how every passage in the Bible fits into God’s drama of redemption—and the role you play in his story today. Scholarly exegesis, biblical theology, and life application come together in a new commentary series that connects each verse to the overarching biblical narrative.
The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) is a multi-volume commentary series that covers all sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments.
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.
