Preaching University: Bible Commentaries

Use this Research Guide to create and present sermons.

What is Bible Commentary?

Biblical Commentaries provide in-depth explanations of each book of the Bible - sometimes verse by verse.  This is usually done by printing the Biblical text itself, noting any problem with translation of ancient manuscripts, offering historical and cultural background material on a Biblical passage, and then giving an explanation of the meaning of the Biblical passage.
