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.


Series Distictives:

The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) is a multi-volume commentary series that covers all sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments.

  • Exegesis, meet biblical theology. The EBTC helps you understand the meaning of a biblical passage through careful exegetical analysis. 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.

Why 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.

David G. Firth interprets the book of Joshua with a sensitivity to its place as Christian Scripture. Joshua is marginalized in many churches, often because its message is misunderstood. Firth reveals that, rather than simply being a story of conquest, Joshua is concerned with matters of identity and faithfulness. Joshua exhorts God’s people to live out their calling in light of God’s promises.

Joshua is often ignored or avoided these days by Christians because of its violence, but Firth helps us appreciate its importance to our theology and faith.

James M. Hamilton provides a fresh translation and canonical interpretation of the Psalms. Though commonly read in isolation, the Psalms are best read as a collage that tells a story of God’s faithfulness to his people through his king. Following the introductory Psalms 1–2, Hamilton observes the significance of the Psalter’s intentional macro-structuring and intricate links across neighboring psalms.

From the first psalm to the last, Hamilton offers both insight and conviction. This commentary belongs on the desk of every preacher and in the library of every Christian.

Joe M. Sprinkle connects Daniel with the biblical story. Debates rage around Daniel’s dating, historicity, and referents. With this focus on historical context, Daniel’s canonical context is often lost. While arguing for conservative dating and historicity, Sprinkle focuses on how Daniel is a fulcrum for many theological themes in both the Old and New Testaments.

Joe Sprinkle's commentary presents the best of evangelical scholarship on Daniel: an even-handed evaluation of the most recent thought on both individual passages and the theology of the book as a whole.

  • Author: David G. Peterson
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 688

Romans declares that God’s promises are fulfilled in Jesus. David G. Peterson situates Romans within the grand redemptive story of the Old Testament: creation, fall, Israel, exile, and promised redemption in the Messiah. Peterson reads Romans as Paul’s exposition and defense of the gospel and highlights its unique theological insights into the Trinity, righteousness and justification, Israel and the church, apostolic ministry, and true worship and holy living.

The verse-by-verse commentary is brimming with insightful exegesis, and the elucidation of the biblical-theological themes of Romans contains a careful and powerful articulation of the gospel. I think Paul would like this commentary!

  • Author: Matthew S. Harmon
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2021
  • Pages: 656

Matthew S. Harmon traces the argument of Paul’s most polemic letter. In Galatians, Paul defends his authority and attacks his opponents’ arguments—and in both cases, the decisive factor is the Gospel. History and Scripture must be interpreted in light of Christ’s arrival. The new creation has broken in, leaving nothing unaltered. Harmon plumbs Galatians’ theological depth, including its view of sin and exile, apocalyptic antitheses, the Trinity, Isaiah’s servant figure, the law, righteousness, and faith(fulness).

Matthew S. Harmon offers a detailed and rigorous analysis of Paul’s letter to the Galatians, mindful of exegetical detail as well as wider theological themes. An excellent treatment of the text that will benefit students and pastors alike.

1-2 Timothy and Titus

  • Author: Andreas J. Köstenberger
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 640

In this EBTC volume, Andreas J. Köstenberger captures the rich theological contributions of Paul’s oft-overlooked letters to Timothy and Titus. Köstenberger highlights Paul’s mature reflections on doctrine, the church’s nature, mission, relationships, dynamics, and oversight, the Christian life, and the last days.

Köstenberger is to be commended for his careful biblical-theological method: in a readable way, exegeting the text sequentially and then topically and I believe very thoroughly cataloguing the many themes that arise from this study. I know no other major attempt to catalogue the theology of the Pastoral Epistles in this way.

  • Author: Thomas R. Schreiner
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 560

Thomas R. Schreiner clarifies Hebrews’s complex argument by keeping a sustained focus on its logical flow. He interprets Hebrews in light of its prominent structures of promise and fulfillment, eschatology, typology, and the relationship between heaven and earth. Schreiner probes the letter’s unique theological contributions, such as its presentation of Jesus’ divinity and humanity, his priesthood and sacrifice, the new covenant, warnings and exhortations, and the reward for those who persevere in Christ.

Tethered by a close reading of the text and the secondary literature, Schreiner leads the reader with skill and care through one of the New Testament’s most heavily weighted theological works. More importantly, Schreiner’s commentary leaves the reader with a deep and abiding sense of the glory of Jesus Christ’s person and work. For what more could one hope?

    I purchased the commentary set recently during March Matchups sale and am absolutely loving it. I started with Romans and am finding it to be top notch while remaining crisp and precise. I own many commentaries on Romans but this one stands out with its promise of biblical theology and sound exegesis. Volumes on Hebrews and Psalms also look promising. Scholarly exegesis, biblical theology, and life application are some of the features of this new commentary set. A great buy!
