The Acts of the Apostles

The Greek Text with Introduction and Commentary

This detailed linguistic, textual, and historical commentary on the Greek text of Acts constitutes a welcome addition to contemporary evangelical scholarship. In making this pervasive revision of his major work on the Greek text of Acts, first published in 1951, F. F. Bruce has taken into account the tremendous volume of scholarly work and the advances in linguistic and historical knowledge during the last four decades.

The comprehensive introduction to this considerably enlarged edition includes a completely new section on the theology of Acts as well as the most recent research on such matters as the authorship, date, sources, and style of Acts. The book itself prints the Greek text of Acts paragraph by paragraph, and each paragraph is followed by a verse-by- verse commentary that pays special attention to matters of vocabulary, grammatical structure, and historical importance.

Devoted as it is to an inductive study of the linguistic, textual, and historical aspects of the Greek text, Bruce’s Acts of the Apostles is a first-rate “first-level” commentary. The philological and historical material here presented provides a solid foundation for further exegesis of the text of Acts.
