The Pillar New Testament Commentary
Series Editor: D.A. Carson

The Pillar New Testament Commentary, designed for serious readers of the Bible, seeks above all to make clear the meaning of the text of Scripture as we have it. Writers of the PNTC volumes interact with the most important, informed contemporary debate yet avoid undue technical detail. Their ideal is a blend of rigorous exegesis and exposition, scholarship and pastoral sensitivity, with an eye alert both to biblical theology and to the contemporary relevance of the Bible.

The Letters of 2 Peter and Jude
Peter H. Davids

Filling a notable gap in scholarship on 2 Peter and Jude, Peter Davids artfully unpacks these two neglected but fascinating epistles that deal with the confrontation between the Greco-Roman world and the burgeoning first-century Jesus communities. Davids firmly grasps the overall structure of these oft-maligned epistles and presents a strong case for 2 Peter and Jude as coherent, consistent documents. Marked by exceptional exegesis and sharp, independent judgments, Davids’s work both connects with the latest scholarship and transforms scholarly insights into helpful conclusions benefiting Christian believers.

Reviews

Clinton E. Arnold
— Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
“In this well-written and informative commentary on 2 Peter and Jude, Peter Davids helps us read these two fascinating letters in light of their Jewish background. He uses his exegetical skill and knowledge of Judaism to provide satisfying explanations of ‘slandering celestial beings’ and the many other difficult-to-understand passages. This outstanding commentary is clearly a ‘top pick’ on these two letters.”

Jerome Neyrey
— University of Notre Dame
“A reliable and literate work — knowledgeable without being cluttered, informed without being pedantic. As a traditional commentary, it argues introductory matters well, relies on epistolary and rhetorical insights for structural guides, and is very well informed on Israelite and Greco-Roman background.... Balances the big canvas with smaller cameo scenes.... Should be considered the best of a new wave of commentaries on Jude and 2 Peter.”

Seyoon Kim
— Fuller Theological Seminary
“This is an exemplary commentary, marked by the author’s mature scholarship, keen theological insights, and deep pastoral concerns. His thorough exegesis, conducted with a singular combination of rhetorical and narrative analysis as well as other usual critical methods, has produced a most reliable exposition of these neglected epistles.”

Ralph P. Martin
— Azusa Pacific University
“A careful and painstaking treatment of the least well known of the General Epistles. . . . The reader’s curiosity is both stimulated and satisfied by this commentary. It will fill a niche in today’s market and be a welcome addition to the libraries of both scholars and pastors. I commend it with enthusiasm.”

The 380 page hardcover edition of this resource sells for US$36.00.

Notice: Volumes in the Pillar New Testament Commentary Series all appear in the "Books" section of the Mantis Bible Study Bookshelf. While technically these are commentaries, they are different from other Mantis commentaries because they contain so much information on each New Testament book. As a result, they cannot currently be used with the Mantis "Analyze Verse" feature, but should be read like a regular book.
