Overview

This commentary on the New Testament by John Lightfoot is a unique addition to the studious Christian's library. With the Gospels written within a first century Jewish context, some of the meaning, nuance and hidden reference is lost upon the modern reader. Within these pages, Lightfoot uses the Talmud (a main text of history, tradition, ethics and scriptural commentary in Judaism) and other Judaic sources, to bring cultural background and historical flavor to the familiar verses of the Gospels, giving them new life and new insight. Though the author passed away before the full completion of this epic work, "A Commentary of the New Testament from the Talmud and Hebraica" proves to be an invaluable tool for bringing fresh light upon those obsure years of the first century.

[This edition contains the entirety of the verse-by-verse commentary of the Gospels from the original work, but omits the "Chorographical Details," being non-commentary notes about the regions and districts of Israel.]
