Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament

On the importance of knowing the biblical languages for faithful preaching and teaching, Martin Luther once wrote, "And let us be sure of this: we will not long preserve the gospel without the languages. The languages are the sheath in which this sword of the Spirit is contained."

The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) is a tool intended to help readers have access to this sheath and wield the sword of the Spirit. The series began as the vision of scholar and teacher Murray J. Harris who desired that those who use it "will not only gain proficiency in handling the Greek New Testament but also find their thought and life shaped by the treasures contained in it."

The EGGNT series will make interpreting any New Testament book easier. Each volume includes a brief introduction to the New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline completes each volume.

Dr. Harris is stepping down from his editorial work with the EGGNT so he may devote his full attention to caring for his wife Jennifer in her struggles with Multiple Sclerosis. But his conviction that the church always needs informed, systematic, engaging, expository preaching based on the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible will continue to mark the series as each volume is written. B&H Academic gratefully dedicates this series to him.

We are excited to have New Testament scholars Andreas J. Kostenberger and Robert W. Yarbrough serve as editor and co-editor for the series. We pray that under their leadership the EGGNT series will help many readers faithfully interpret the Greek New Testament and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
