Alford's Greek Testament
This classic, time-tested reference is written in English on the Greek text of the New Testament.
Written from 1849-1861, Alford's Greek Testament became Henry Alford's lasting legacy. Alford providesgrammatical, literary, lexical, and textual analysis on nearly every Greek word in the New Testament.
The commentary's scholarship is exemplary, as it emerged in a era when people were more disciplined and educated. It's a work of immense thought and study. When you consider the amount of information Alford had to filter, study, and analyze, all before the age of digital retrieval systems, photo copiers, and electric typewriters, the results are even more impressive.
Even today, Alford remains one of the most influential, authoritative Greek commentaries, often cited in books, dissertations, and blogs.
John Piper says The Greek Testament "comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions".
