This powerful reference tool is a book-by-book, chapter-by-chapter, detailed look at the historical, cultural, and economic background of the Gospel of John, and Hebrews—Revelation. Much more than simply theology or a Word study, The Bible Knowledge Background Commentary opens a window to transport the reader back into the setting of the New Testament to see, touch, and hear as much of the world of that time as possible.
the better acquainted you become with the background of the New Testament, the better you'll be able to avoid misunderstanding the allusions and references that run throughout the writings of the New Testament. Historical events, social customs, religious beliefs, figures of speech, turns of phrase, and institutions all contribute to how the Bible's first readers would have understood it.
With this powerful reference in hand, you will never look at the New Testament the same way again!
