4.0 out of 5 stars Good for quick references 5 Feb 2009
By Debbie - Published on
This commentary covers Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers. It breaks each book into sections and identifies the location and length of time taken for each event. The meaning of the Hebrew words are sometimes examined in-depth so that the reader can accurately understand how Hebrew readers would have understood the words and verses. The commentary also briefly covers the different prevailing views of various verses. The commentators tend to lean toward the plain reading of the verses, but they rarely take a definitive stand.

The text occasionally notes relevant archeological information, and maps and charts are included. Overall, I'd say that "Genesis through Numbers" is a good, basic commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Commentary You Can Understand 17 Nov 2011
By Adrienne Monteban - Published on
When I'm having trouble understanding a Bible passage, there is nothing more discouraging than turning to a commentary that you can't understand either. This series solves that problem!! This commentary presents the information clearly and in a straightforward manner. You get the wealth of information without getting lost with some scholar showing off how smart he is. This is BY FAR the best commentary series out there. Probably one of my favorite feature is how well the commentary ties each chapter into whole book. There are 12 volumes in this series and I've been collecting them as I study different parts of the Bible. My favorite volume is the first New Testament volume: QUICKNOTES COMMENTARY VOL 8 MATTHEW MARK (QuickNotes Commentaries)

These books are a great commentary to build a foundation on. However, they give you enough information to make the Bible practical if you don't have time for more deeper study.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bible Study Helper 15 Aug 2009
By tmtrvlr - Published on
Can a commentary really cover Genesis through Numbers in 240 pages? I confess I was a little skeptical when I began reading, but I was genuinely surprised to see that the author/editor was able to accomplish just that.

Good organization of the chapters seems to be the key to the success of this book. Each section has a Set-up (intent), Critical Observations (questions what or why), Demystifying (definitions and explanations), and Take it Home (applications). I appreciated the detailed maps throughout the lessons and the easy to read text boxes that makes the information attention-grabbing.

I especially enjoyed the section on Jacob's Blessing, described as a theatrical play in 5 scenes, though the scenes are broken down differently by different commentators. Act One: Isaac Asks Esau for a meal, Act Two: Rebekah's Scheme, Act Three: Jacob's Esau Imitation, Act Four: Esau's Horror and Revenge, and Act Five: Jacob's Departure. The commentary puts each act in focus with the consequences of the characters actions.

I also found the use of different versions of the Bible helpful in making sense of difficult passages. Genesis Through Numbers Quick Notes Bible Commentary will complement your Bible study with observations that will enrich your learning experience.
