Jumpstart Your Research

The Lexham Research Commentary is your starting point for study and research. Each volume gives you the tools you need to find answers quickly. This commentary is designed to do the time-consuming work of searching through commentaries, journal articles, and monographs to find the information you need, saving you valuable time by curating all of the best literature in one place—it’s a commentary on the commentaries. The annotated notes on the various viewpoints and interpretive options within the text allow you to quickly synthesize a broad range of views on a particular passage. Dense, jargon-filled research is distilled into easy-to-understand comments. As you critically study the text, the contextual notes help you place the passage within the narrow context of the biblical book and the broader context of the entire canon.


The Lexham Research Commentaries were formerly known as the Lexham Bible Guides.

A Smart Way to Study the Bible

  • Find things fast. There’s no need to locate, read, and notate dozens of reference materials. Everything is in one spot. It’s concise enough to digest, but broad enough so you know everything’s covered.
  • See connections. The overview format leads you to research topics you may have never read about or heard of. This snapshot view of the text provides an ideal starting point for sermon preparation or academic research.
  • Gain perspective. You’ll get an overview of all the relevant issues related to a particular biblical passage, from exegetical topics like structure and genre, to interpretive issues presented by commentators. You’ll also find links to lexicons and commentaries for word studies in Logos, plus lots of links to related literature for further study. Everything is organized and summarized in one spot—only a click away.
  • Designed digital-first. These commentaries are written from the ground up to take full advantage of Logos’ platform. The interconnectivity of the Lexham Research Commentaries within the Logos library provides you with relevant, curated content at a click. There’s no need to flip through pages, pore over commentaries, or search through dictionaries. You get access to the best content available—instantly.

    Logos is missing sales by not having a few sample pages to put up for us to look at. I wont buy without seeing something first.

    The sample pages here are for a different book. I would really like to have sample pages of this book so I can see if this book will really contribute to my knowledge of Luke. As it is now, my bid won't succeed. Give me a reason to up my bid.

    So are we to draw our own conclusions are rely on the Spirit to guide us? And if the Spirit, then why read all these differing opinions? And why so many opinions in the first place? Is the Spirit only guiding me and not them? Am I that confident that I can assume I am right in my study, but these other men are not? Why am I so confident? What gives me this confidence? Having spent years of quality time with men who differ radically than me on question pertaining to Biblical interpretation I have to say that each one believe they have come to the correct interpretation through the guidance of the Spirit while all others have basically been led astray in some way. When approached with this fact they admit the possibility that they could be wrong but that they know Jesus is Lord and that they are saved. I find the whole thing rather circular to be honest. It basically goes like this: I know that I am correct because I have studied and the Spirit has directed that study. While all these other men have done the same thing they are wrong. I admit there is a small chance I the one who is actually wrong, but even if that is the case I know that I know that Jesus is my Saviour and that is all that really matters. This position that almost all Christians I have ever met are forced to accept is illogical. It basically one that says it is based on facts, but it is one that is based on faith. Faith always allows us to move the goalposts.

    I've just gone through the Lexham guides for: Gen 1-11, Philemon, & 1 Timothy, using them as a basis for Bible study. I also used the Galatians and Philippians guides for essays. The value in these resources is that they act a bit like a lecturer, highlighting the main areas of contention, clearly discussing the different arguments, then pointing you towards further reading for in-depth understanding enabling you to make your own mind up. Finally it then offers some pre-liminary summarymaterial, bringing together the whole. Can you do this with a commentary?...Yes, but you then have to do the hard work of researching different views, then following up with those other commentaries/points of view. The Bible guides do thisfor you, and more they link you to word studies, bible dictionaries articles, scholarly work other than commentaries etc. Equally they summarise the points of view of commentators even if you don't own those resources. Personally I have found them incredibly valuable for both private study, discipleship, sermon prep, and essays. I would love them to be cheaper but the direct comparison with a commentary is not accurate. Only you can decide if what they offer is worth the money, I think they are.
