Item description for Ephesians and Colossians (Paideia: Commentaries on the New Testament) by Charles H. Talbert, Mikeal Parsons & Charles Talbert...
Overview Offers students a grounding in the interpretation of Ephesians and Colossians that is conversant with contemporary scholarship, draws on ancient backgrounds, and attends to the theological nature of the text.
Publishers Description Ephesians and Colossians is the first of eighteen volumes in the new Paideia commentary series. This series approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions. The commentaries shed fresh light on the text while avoiding idiosyncratic readings, attend to theological meaning without presuming a specific theological stance in the reader, and show how the text uses narrative and rhetorical strategies from the ancient educational context to form and shape the reader. Professors, graduate and seminary students, and pastors will benefit from this readable commentary, as will theological libraries.
