Welcome to Best Bible Commentaries

The purpose of Best Bible Commentaries is to connect students, readers, teachers, pastors, and preachers to resources that will help them understand and apply God’s Word. Scripture instructs believers to seek wisdom, so whether you are an individual looking for devotional aides or you are a pastor looking for help with sermon preparation, it is my hope that this website will benefit you as a follower and servant of Jesus Christ.

Best Bible Commentaries “majors” on commentaries and “minors” on other biblical studies resources. You will find a list of commentaries for every book of the Bible on this website as well as expert summaries. Best Bible Commentaries also publishes one Question-and-Answer interview each week with a biblical scholar. Some of the best Old and New Testament scholars in the world today have participated. You may subscribe to this feature by following Best Bible Commentaries on social media or by using the email subscription feature. Thank you for visiting.
