A Standard Reference For More Than a Century
Lange's Commentary on the Holy Scriptures was the standard commentary for nearly a century. The original work was edited by Peter Lange in Germany (1864-1880). Phillip Schaff supervised the English translation and contributed substantially to the American edition.
Dr. Lange used a unique "three-pronged" to each passage. he would examine the passage with exegetical and critical comments, then go over it again with doctrinal and ethical interpretation, followed by homiletical and practical suggestions for application. Thus nearly each section will be divided as such.
- EXEGETICAL AND CRITICAL
- DOCTRINAL AND ETHICAL
- HOMILETICAL AND PRACTICAL
For this reason Lange's commentary cannot be neatly divided into verses as the typical digital Bible commentary. Instead it must remain in sections or chapters to retain the flow and context of the comments. Sometimes each section or entries can be quite lengthy.
