Book Information

With the explosive increase in availability of English Bible translations, the question can easily be asked, "Why bother with the hard work of biblical exegesis?" Computers can translate foreign languages and our English texts can take us very close to the original meanings, so why exegete? Answer: because the deepest truths of the Bible are found through the deepest study.

This book teaches the principles, methods, and fundamentals of exegeting the New Testament. It also has examples of textual exegesis that clearly and helpfully show the value of exegeting a text well. Any serious student of Scripture would benefit from utilizing this book in the study of the Bible.

"Interpreting the New Testament Text is a contemporary application of Paul's charge to Timothy to study to present himself to God, approved as one who correctly handles the word of truth. Highly recommended!"
Andreas J. Köstenberger, Professor of New Testament and Director of Ph.D. Studies, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This 'how-to' guide provides significant step-by-step help for first-year seminarians. It should prove very helpful."
Klyne Snodgrass, Paul W. Brandel Professor of New Testament Studies, North Park Theological Seminary

"Not only an excellent textbook but also a useful refresher for pastors and teachers engaged in the weekly study of the text for ministry."
Clinton E. Arnold, Professor and Chairman, Department of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

A very helpful aid and introduction for how to do biblical exegesis. I found the first part of the book extremely helpful and was able to put all that I had learned into practice almost immediately. The diagramming was probably the most difficult and therefore, the least helpful. Also, most the essays give helpful resources to each subject, i.e. exegesis, textual criticism, grammar, word studies, genre, theology, application, etc.
