The Easy Study Bible Commentary takes The Easy Study Bible Diagramed and examines, describes and expounds upon each New Testament book, chapter by chapter, paragraph by paragraph, verse by verse and finally phrase by phrase.
In my many years of Bible study, I have found this arrangement to be the easiest to follow and understand.
I have done my best to write this commentary with the idea in mind of making it easier for you to understand and therefore apply the great teachings that God gave to each of us through the various books of the New Testament.
At the end of each section that we study, I will give you what I call my Greek Paraphrase. What I do is to take all of the expanded Greek definitions and put them together to help us better understand the passage.
The following example is from James 1:1:
(First is the Easy Study Bible Translation then the Easy Study Bible Diagramed and finally the Greek Paraphrase.)
1 James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the dispersion. Greetings.
I am James who has devoted his life to God and the Lord Jesus Christ and am as bound to Him as a slave would be to his master. I send my greetings to all of you who are descended from the twelve tribes which are scattered all over the world.
