In the Spring semester (my last as an undergrad) of 2007, we will be working through the Greek text of Hebrews for Greek Exegesis. I must admit that I am really excited that we will study this book (this class is one of the reasons I am a Biblical Languages major to begin with). I have for sometime now really been intrigued with this book; it’s style, theology, pastoral warmth and concern, OT imagery, Christology, and many other things. I began building a library of resources concerning this book alone in anticipation for this class. Some of the resources that I have, and recommend to others are listed below. I hope that this helps anyone who desires to study and engage the text of this profound Epistle, which by the way was not written by the apostle Paul.
For a good commentary on the Greek text, this is the one that I would recommend.
This 2 vol. set is considered by most the best on Hebrews. The introduction is really well done.
A good, but expensive commentary. These commentaries cover a wide area of topics and disciplines as they relate to the text.
I have not really had the time to look at this commentary as much as I would like. Nonetheless, it is one to have and consult.
This is a commentary that is good for it’s theology. I am glad that Eerdman’s has once again brought it back into print.
Good introduction and well researched. F.F. Bruce is a well respected commentator, and always produces a well thought out and researched work.
These are just a few of the commentaries that are published and should be on the selves of every student of Hebrews. In my next post, I will list some other books that help with interpreting and understanding this magnificent work…of Apollos. 🙂
