Zondervan Colossians & Philemon: Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament [ZECNT]

A commentary focusing on the translation and grammatical structure of Colossians and Philemon.

The primary concern of the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series is to illuminate the meaning of the Greek text by examining its lexical and grammatical forms in order to determine the intended meaning of the original author.

Wherever necessary historical and social dimensions pertinent to the text are drawn in to help further explain the meaning of the text. Thus, this is not a commentary bogged down in academic discussion or historical debates-it is a commentary on the text that draws in these other elements in service of making the text's meaning lucid. Footnotes are minimized, and grammatical diagrams are displayed in large images. Large page format and book design make these commentaries ideal for notes, and each section is prefaced by a short summary.

Perfect preaching tools, all those working with the language of the text will find this series helpful.

I have had a Chinese commentary on Colossians by Dr. John Pao, Dr. David Pao' father.. and it's a great exposition on Colossians. Dr David Pao's commentary on Colossians (and Philemon) is even better: excellent exegesis on `Christ, the first-born of all creation';`worship of angels'... The overall arguments are well-argued & supported with reference to ancient & contemporary authors.
