This is Biblesoft's most complete collection of the scholarly writings and commentaries by Ernst Wilhelm (E. W.) Hengstenberg, including nearly all of his published works. In addition to his writings on the Old Testament (see the Hengstenberg Old Testament Collection), we also include his two greatest works on the New Testament:
Commentary on the Gospel of John [2-volumes] (1861-3)
The Revelation of St. John [2 volumes](1849-51)
These are detailed critical and exegetical commentaries which explore both the Greek text and its historical-cultural background. In addition to the Bible references, we have also linked references to the works of Josephus and the Church Fathers, as well as the Pseudepigrapha, as far as possible, wherever they occur. This makes Biblesoft's electronic version among the very best available.
E. W. Hengstenberg is an important figure in the history of modern criticism and Biblical studies, as he took a moderating position against the more extreme skeptical approach found in much of the German scholarship of the period. A devout Lutheran minister and theologian, he labored hard in his writings, as in his post at the university of Berlin, to preserve a true Evangelical spirit in Biblical criticism and theology both, in comparison with the burgeoning Rationalism of his day. This makes his commentaries and other writings continued to be valued greatly by many Evangelicals. They belong in the library of every Biblical scholar and student today, and Biblesoft is pleased to make them available to you!
Note: For OneTouch users who have the Professional Series, be aware that the Commentaries on John and Revelation are already included in that library series.
