Format: Hardcover
As with most of the commentaries in the original New International Commentary on the New Testament series (some of the volumes have subsequently been reissued with other authors), this volume on First Corinthians by F.W. Grosheide combines good scholarship with accessibility. Technical points have been placed in footnotes, as have detailed references to the original Greek. This allows someone who is looking for insight into the overall meaning of a passage to do so without having to wade through material that may not be relevant to his purposes. The more scholarly material in the footnotes allows the person interested in these issues to delve into them.

The introductory material to the letter is extremely brief. It would have been helpful if there had been more background to this epistle, but this is a minor criticism. All in all this is an excellent commentary.

This volume on First Corinthians in the New International Commentary on the New Testament series was written by F.W. Grosheide. (This commentary been replaced in the newer editions of the NICNT by one written by Gordon Fee.) It combines excellent scholarship with accessibility and readability. More technical point and references to the Greek text have been placed in footnotes. While the introductory section in the commentary is quite brief and could have been expanded, this is a minor criticism of what is in every other way an excellent commentary.

F. W. Grosheide was a Dutch New Testament scholar who taught at the Free University of Amsterdam for more than forty years. This commentary was first published in 1953.

Of Paul’s quotation in 2:9, he observes, “The exact O.T. reference of these words was unknown to the early church fathers as it is to us. Some have thought that Paul was quoting from the apocrypha but others have denied that. The well known fact that Paul is often very free in quoting the Old Testament, so that he joins several texts together, makes it possible that a number of texts were here combined into a hymn and that this hymn was now quoted by the apostle… The view that Paul quotes the Old Testament, using passages like Is 64:4… for the first and the last part of the quotation and Is 65:17 for the middle remains the most plausible one.” (Pg. 66)

Of 4:9, he said, “We find much evidence in Scripture to the effect that the angels are informed about man’s life on earth… But the Bible does not explain how the angels enter into life on earth. It is possible that we, as men, cannot understand or even circumscribe that particular way. Nevertheless the fact is revealed to us. The angels behold with astonishment the suffering of the apostles.” (Pg. 107)

He observes of 11:7-15, “A man is not obliged to cover his head. Paul regards this covering of the head as a token of subjection… A man degrades himself by wearing such a token of subjection which the woman is supposed to wear. IN the preceding verse Paul declared that a woman should not act like a man; here he states: a man shall not act like a woman…” (Pg. 254-255) He continues, “The question arises whether the difference between man and woman existing since the creation disappears in the Lord.
