This module is now obsolete. The new version includes the Old Testament and the New Testament: http://www.biblesupp...mentary-5-vols/
John Trapp (born Croome d'Abetot on 5 June 1601 - died 16 October 1669 in Weston-on-Avon ) was an English Anglican Bible commentator. His large five-volume commentary is still read today and is known for its pithy statements and quotable prose. His volumes are quoted frequently by many other religious writers, notably Charles Spurgeon. (NOTE: This commentary includes only the New Testament, not his Old Testament volumes--If I can find the OT text with decent formatting, I will update this module.)
In his opening lecture to "Commenting & Commentaries" Charles Haddon Spurgeon wrote:
"Would it be possible to eulogize too much the incomparably sententious and suggestive folios of John Trapp? Trapp will be most valuable to men of discernment, to thoughtful men, to men who only want a start in a line of thought, and are then able to run alone. Trapp excels in witty stories on the one hand, and learned allusions on the other. You will not thoroughly enjoy him unless you can turn to the original, and yet a mere dunce at classics will prize him. His writings remind me of himself: he was a pastor, hence his holy practical remarks; he was the head of a public school, and everywhere we see his profound scholarship; he was for some time amid the guns and drums of a parliamentary garrison, and he gossips and tells queer anecdotes like a man used to a soldier's life; yet withal, he comments as if he had been nothing else but a commentator all his days. Trapp is my especial companion and treasure; I can read him when I am too weary for anything else. Trapp is salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar, and all the other condiments. Put him on the table when you study, and when you have your dish ready, use him by way of spicing the whole thing. Yes, gentlemen, read Trapp certainly, and if you catch the infection of his consecrated humor, so much the better for your hearers."
