Brimming with lavish, full-color photos and graphics, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary walks you verse by verse through all the books of the New Testament. Written in a clear, engaging style, this beautiful set provides a new and accessible approach that more technical expository and exegetical commentaries don't offer. It features commentary based on relevant papyri, inscriptions, archaeological discoveries, and studies of Judaism, Roman culture, Hellenism, and other features of the world of the New Testament, hundreds of full-color photographs, color illustrations, and line drawings, copious maps, charts, and timelines, sidebar articles and insights, and 'Reflections' on the Bible's relevance for 21st-century living.
