Description

On the very first occasion when someone stood up in public to tell people about Jesus, he made it very clear: this message is for everyone. A new age had begun in which the living God was going to do new things in the world - beginning then and there with the individuals who were listening to him. "This promise is for you," he said, "and for your children, and for everyone who is far away" (Acts 2:39). It wasn't just for the person standing next to you. It was for everyone.

One way in which the everyone promise worked out was through the writings of the early Christian leaders. These short works - mostly letters and stories about Jesus - were widely circulated and eagerly read. They were never intended for either a religious or intellectual elite. From the very beginning they were meant for everyone.

While this work is careful to stick to the historical record, the meaning of the original words, and the exact force of what each writer says about God, its goal is to speak to people who wouldn't normally read a technical commentary full of Greek words and footnotes. That's who the book is written for. And that's why there's a glossary in the back of key words with which you might not be familiar. In this PocketBible edition, those words are linked to the glossary when they occur in the text, so you can remind yourself what they mean.

Tom Wright tackles the New Testament passage by passage, first presenting a very readable translation of the text that sticks as close as possible to the original Greek without getting bogged down in ponderous religious terminology, then following that with a highly readable discussion with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. This commentary is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.
