Some Shorter Letters of Paul

Verse-by-Verse Commentary
With C.F. Hogg

Some Shorter Letters of Paul contains detailed commentaries on Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, and 1 and 2 Thessalonians. The commentaries on Galatians and Thessalonians were written by W.E. Vine and C.F. Hogg together. “These teachers made an ideal combination,” said F.F. Bruce. “For the student of the English New Testament, these two commentaries will long remain standard works.”

Vine and Hogg explain that in the Thessalonian letters Paul “is concerned mainly for the spiritual well-being of those to whom he writes; in Galatians he is concerned for the integrity of the gospel he preached.”

The commentaries on Philippians and Colossians were written by W.E. Vine alone. Philippians is a very personal letter while Colossians deals with both Judaistic and Gnostic errors, showing “Christ as the power against every evil, doctrinal and moral, and the power for all manner of godly living.”

These commentaries by W.E. Vine and C.F. Hogg excel in the rich tradition of careful, exegetical word study and expository commentary. They take into consideration every reference to a particular word in the Bible as well as the range of its uses in ancient Greek.
