I’ve been asked many, many times over the years what Bible Commentaries I use. A Bible Commentary is an explanation of what a passage in the Bible is saying, usually written by a Bible scholar. In this blog post, I’ll share. Contact me today with questions!
THE BEST BIBLE COMMENTARIES
- Matthew Henry. Matthew Henry was a minister in the late 1600s and early 1700s who is best known for his six-volume Bible commentary written in 1706.
