RESOURCE: Best New Testament Commentaries

This is to finish off yesterday's blog. This list is also from the Denver Seminary Journal, a very nice place to start. The book by D.A. Carson is also fantastic.

And now to quote from Denver:

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.

Abbreviations for series:
AB = Anchor Bible
BECNT = Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament
BST = Bible Speaks Today
ECC = Eerdmans Critical Commentaries
HNTC = Harper New Testament Commentary (also called Black's NTC)
ICC = International Critical Commentary
