9. MAJOR COMMENTARIES

The lists of commentaries for each N.T. book are divided into three sections: the first contains those we consider the best detailed, critical commentaries using the Greek text; the second lists more mid-level works using the English text (some with references to the Greek in footnotes); and the third consists of briefer commentaries often with a special focus on application. One priority title is asterisked for each level.
