Ellingworth is a huge work. Although sometimes he makes extremely complex ideas seem very simple, he also has a gift for making extremely simple ideas more complex than they need to be. He summarises a huge amount of the literature on Hebrews, including the essential works of Vanhoye and Guthrie on the structure of this epistle. Grammar, background, Philonic idealism and other influences on the author and in the epistle are brought out lucidly and systematically.
He seeks to summarise the serious scholarship as well as providing his own thesis about the Epistle. He manages to be comprehensive and, on the whole, fair.
His work is not restricted to English language work but contains a significant list of works in several languages dealing with the text of Hebrews. The bibliography is well presented and enough to help anyone find further references.
This is a solid, scholarly work which is an essential read for anyone attempting a serious understanding of Hebrews at Graduate level

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent commentary for the serious student of Hebrews 17 Aug 2006
By C. B. Kvidahl - Published on
When studying the Epistle to the Hebrews, one may get lost in its beauty. But when one begins to study it in the Greek, they may get lost in the author's style, vocabulary, use of the Old Testament, and many other things. Thankfully, Paul Ellingworth has written a magisterial commentary that helps get the reader through the maze that is Hebrews. The introduction is excellent, and the commentary is superb! Ellingworth leaves no stone unturned, and for a Greek student like myself, this is priceless. If you could get one commentary on Hebrews, this may be just that one (it is hard to decide between William Lane and Ellingworth).

5.0 out of 5 stars Ellingworth's Hebrews 5 Mar 2012

Paul Ellingworth's Hebrews commentary in the NIGTC series proves to be one of the best in the series. Those serious about understanding Hebrews should add this to their libraries, as I have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine review, but bias is very evident 11 Jan 2009
By Jared - Published on
Mr. Ellingworth definitely knows his Greek. My desire, however, was to find a commentary of the Greek that was more objective, providing the possible translations and the contextual supports/detractions for each. Mr. Ellingworth's bias towards a dispensation theology is extremely evident and is the premise of his work rather than a supported conclusion. Perhaps this is necessary, but this bias does not just bleed into his commentary, it pours all over it. Ultimately and understandably, the author's bias influences the weight he gives other possible translations and I could not be sure how much of this bias produced an anachronistic interpretation. Overall it is a well-presented exegesis, yet could have been better if Mr. Ellingworth had softened his predilection towards his adopted theological schema.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New International Greek Testament Commentary -- The Epistle to the Hebrews. 14 Jan 2014
By Mark Abrams Mathias - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I choose this because it was recommended by a serious student of the Bible. It covers exegetical nuance substantively with the focus on Hebrews.
4.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly and rich 17 July 2013
By Michael Settle - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ellingworth's Hebrews commentary has to go on the short list of best commentaries on this crucial book. This is not for the casual layperson, but theology students, scholars and pastors who like deep, technical material from which to work. A knowledge of Greek is helpful as with most in the NIGTC series. If you are a serious student of Hebrews, this is one you should have on your shelf.

Ellingworth's effort deserves to be placed along Beale's Revelation commentary as two of the NIGTC's standouts.
