Format: Hardcover
With this the third of three volumes, Jacob Milgrom completes his monumental commentary on Leviticus. No modern commentary matches Milgrom's in depth, breadth or keen insight. This volume, 3B, covers Leviticus 23-27. Milgrom argues that chapters 17-27 are composed chiefly from what is commonly referred to as the "H" ("Holiness") source, in contrast to chapters 1-16, which according to Milgrom are composed chiefly from the "P" ("Priestly") source. In my review of volume 3A, which covers Lev. 17-22, I briefly outlined the theology that Milgrom believes animates H and therefore I won't repeat it here. Instead this review focuses on the sort of commentator readers will discover Milgrom to be as they work their way through these three dense, difficult but always rewarding volumes.
One of Milgrom's most notable qualities is his thoroughness. On almost any given question, Milgrom sets out the competing answers offered by other scholars. Milgrom frequently credits others with insights he adopts and appears especially happy to credit his students with important insights. Milgrom esteems his students so highly that he compliments them by in his commentary arguing with their theories. Milgrom's generosity isn't simply a mark of good manners. Rather it is a boon to readers who cannot do the research themselves but appreciate a commentator who will give them the lay of the land. Thus, while some readers may not agree with an interpretation Milgrom offers, they may very well find more satisfactory one of the other interpretations reviewed by Milgrom.
Not only does Milgrom consistently cite the work of other modern scholars, he is also committed to demonstrating the relevance of ancient and medieval Jewish interpreters.

Format: Hardcover
Jacob Milgrom's three part commentary of Leviticus cannot be commended highly enough. Not only does not contain Milgrom's extraordinary insights into this book but it also covers all the literature so comprehensively that the book renders all other commentaries of Leviticus redundant and obsolete. Never before in has a single man been able to revise our opinion regarding a book of the Pentateuch as radically and as convincingly as Jacob Milgrom.

Okay, so this is not for everyone, but it you already own volumes one and two, you gotta have three.
Milgrom is readable and exhaustive, but not exhausting.
