Finding Biblical Commentaries: Getting Started

What are Biblical Commentaries

Biblical Commentaries are sources that examine sections of the Bible in detail.  Commentaries appear as parts of sets, as separately published books, and as articles in scholarly journals.  They vary in the amount of detail they include, and may disagree with each other in how they interpret a specific piece of scripture.  Biblical Commentaries have been written for hundreds of years, and the approach taken will depend on the materials available to the scholar at the time of writing.
