About the Commentary

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture taken from the NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLEŽ, Copyright 1960, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1994 by The Lockman Foundation.  Used by permission.

The purpose of this Bible Commentary is to provide verse-by-verse exegesis of selected Scriptures that are significant in demonstrating the truth of essential Christian doctrines, such as the Trinity, the unity of the One God, or salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.  The Commentary will also provide exegesis of Scriptures used by those who challenge historic Christianity, with a careful, respectful analysis of their arguments in light of what the Bible teaches.

Some Bible Commentaries are primarily linguistic; others focus on theology or homiletics.  This commentary is essentially explanatory, or exegetical.  Unlike most exegetical commentaries, however, this one is written with an eye to apologetics - that is, the Scriptural and rational defense of the faith.

The Apologists Bible Commentary is a work in progress - and probably will always be so.  For as often as challenges are answered, it seems new ones arise, or old ones return in other guise. 

You can help us keep the Commentary as up-to-date as possible by telling us about verses or arguments we may have missed.

Greek Text

Greek text is represented by the Symbol font.  Using this font is advantageous because it is installed on most computers; therefore, you don't need to download special fonts to read the Greek characters.  However, it is somewhat limited, and cannot properly indicate breathings or accents.  The rough breathing is represented with a horizontal line above the vowel; soft breathings and accents are not reproduced at all.

Example:  en arch hn`o logoz.  <- If this text does not appear with proper Greek letters, you may wish to add the Symbol font to your system.
