Description

This commentary on the Gospels and Acts, excerpted from the Fortress Commentary on the Bible: The New Testament, engages readers in the work of biblical interpretation. Contributors from a diversity of perspectives connect historical-critical analysis with sensitivity to current theological, cultural, and interpretive issues.

Each chapter (Matthew through Acts) includes an introduction and commentary based on three lenses: ancient context, the interpretive tradition, and contemporary questions and challenges.

The Gospels and Acts introduces fresh perspectives and draws students, preachers, and interested readers into the challenging work of interpretation.
