I own the New Testament portion of the revised edition. Like the older version they are formatted/organized the same, very well written, and easy to understand also. Many of the authors of the revised edition are new, providing a fresh new look and understanding of the scriptures. You can't go wrong purchasing either edition, both are equally first-rate.

Review 2 for The Expositor's Bible Commentary: Ephesians-Philemon, Revised
Date:July 5, 2006
The Expositor's Bible Commentary, revised is a new thirteen-volume edition based on the original twelve-volume set. Its a timely revision, as the original EBC was about ready for pasture. The new series demonstrates the same commitment to the divine inspiration, trustworthiness, and authority of the Bible. Of the fifty-six contributors, thirty are new. The others are completely revised by the original author. In volume 12: Ephesians (William Klein, replacing Skevington Wood), Philippians (David Garland, replacing Homer Kent), Colossians (Todd Still, replacing Curtis Vaughn), Thessalonians (Robert Thomas, updated), Pastorals (Andreas Kstenberger, replacing Ralph Earle and Edmond Hiebert), and Philemon (Arthur A. Rupprecht, updated). A big improvement.
