The NIVAC on Ephesians begins with an introduction chapter that discusses different areas of the book. Like most introductions this one covers the message of Ephesians, the purpose, its authorship, and an outline of the book. The bibliography is a nice benefit in helping the reader find more works on Ephesians.
The Text and Commentary section of this book will divide each passage of Scripture into three sections:
Original Meaning - This is the section where the author will explain the meaning of the text in its original context. This section is fairly easy to read and is excellent for both Pastors and Laymen.
Bridging Context - In this section the author gets us from the original context to the contemporary context by a "bridge". This is usually the shorter section, as its intent is a very simple one: bring the reader from first century times to 21st century times. The comments in this section are very helpful and this is usually is where the author discusses the main points of the chapter as a whole, and how the original context may be "fleshed out" over different time periods.
Contemporary Significance - This is the section that sets this commentary apart from many others, in my opinion. It answers the question that every reader of the Bible asks: "How does this apply to my life?" This section is such a treat for the reader and often times in other volumes of this series I find myself checking to see what is said in this section, even in clear passages that I may not be studying with a need for a commentary. This section is outstanding.Read more ›
Seminary students who have had Professor Snodgrass (we call him Klyne), have a bit of an inside track that may be helpful. It's likely there isn't a more respected (and liked!) professor at North Park Theological Seminary (and far wider circles could easily be argued). He is precise, pastoral, theological, encyclopedic, genuine, careful, and insanely familiar with the text.
