1/30/2013 - Version 4: Hundreds and hundreds of changes. Too many to list individually

The most common issue was blank passages (no commentary) and misplaced passages (commentary appearing in the wrong verse). Overlapping comments were also creating problems in various books and they have been greatly reduced. A large number of miscellaneous errors were also fixed, based on your feedback. Context: My original source documents are broken into nearly 1,100 files. About 500+ of those files were changed with this revision.

Valued for generations and consulted by Bible scholars everywhere, John Peter Lange's Commentary on the Holy Scripture has withstood the test of time. Hundreds of times per year, even today, Lange is quoted and cited in dissertations and books. Lange’s is one of the finest academic commentary sets that has ever been produced..

John MacArthur lists Langes as a must-have in its 850 Books for Biblical Expositors.

Cyril Barber (in The Minister’s Library Vol 1) has this set marked with an “*”, meaning it is one of the best. He writes “One of the best multivolume commentaries available...."

Even Charles Spurgeon, who disagreed with portions of Lange's theology, wrote:



With this volume the English issue of Lange’s great Commentary is completed, and all ministers and students are deeply indebted to Dr. Schaff and the Messrs. Homiletically, these commentaries are of high value. Often by a single sentence they will start the mind and give it a push along a line of thought, and this is the chief thing that most of us need.


About Lange
Johann Peter Lange (1802-1884) was a professor in Zürich, professor of evangelical theology in the University of Bonn, and a prolific author. Lange began this commentary series in 1857.

About the Commentary
As the introduction to the American version says: this commentary series "aims to give all that the minister and Biblical student can desire in one work." The claim is not hyperbole. Lange aims high, and the contributors and editors give it their all.

To this end, the design is a wonder. Many wish modern series would emulate it as effectively. Each book has an introduction that is both academically and homiletically (i.e. with an aim to preaching) focused.

While the Old Testament represents 80% of the Bible and the New Testament 20%, Lange devotes about 50% of his commentary to the New Testament!

Structure of the Commentary
The text is a fresh translation, followed by a threefold commentary on each section.

  • The first part is exegetical and critical, containing the exegetical and interpretive analysis of the original text, including textual notes, often studying every word.
  • The Second part is doctrinal and ethical section, focusing on theological and moral truths gleaned from the passage.
  • The third part is the homiletical and practical section communicates suggestions as to how the passage can be preached and applied, drawing suggestions both from German (Luther, Tholuck, etc.) and English-language (Hodge, Henry, Spurgeon, Clarke, Charnock, etc.) sources.
This is absolute genius. Not only does the commentary help in analyzing a passage, but often it assists in formulating a plan to proclaim or teach it.

The contributors include some of the more prominent German and English-language scholars of the day. The English-language contributors comprise an impressive constellation of scholars from around the doctrinal spectrum, including Philip Schaff, Charles A. Briggs, W. G. T. Shedd, Patrick Fairbairn, W. Henry Green, John A. Broadus, James Strong, and C. H. Toy.

e-Sword Edition
One of the largest e-Sword commentaries ever created, Lange's words span over 150 megabytes of text, including some 256,000 scripture references! 71,000+ Greek words rendered! 69,900+ Hebrew words rendered!

The e-Sword edition requires e-Sword 10.1. You will not be able to see all of the commentary text and/or e-Sword may freeze when using earlier versions.

The e-Sword edition includes the commentary module (150 megabytes) and a Supplemental Information Reference Library module (6 megabytes). The latter contains various introductions, Rhythmical versions, and Metrical translations. The portion covering Job has over 900 footnotes!

The footnotes in each passage are blue and hyperlinked to the footnotes at the bottom the screen. You may click a footnote to view its content and you may click the footnote again to return to your point of reference in the text.

"Raymond" is a person on BibleSupport.com who cannot reveal his identity because he lives in a country where Christians are routinely killed. "Raymond" wrote a series of very complicated regular expression search/replacements to make this commentary possible. Without Raymond, the footnotes would have been a mess!

  • The most common issue was blank passages (no commentary) and misplaced passages (commentary appearing in the wrong verse). Overlapping comments were also creating problems in various books and they have been greatly reduced. A large number of miscellaneous errors were also fixed, based on your feedback. Context: My original source documents are broken into nearly 1,100 files. About 500+ of those files were changed with this revision.
  • 5/31/2012 - Version 3: Corrected several mis-numbered comments in Gospel of John
  • 5/28/2012 - Version 2: Updated the sort order of verse comments so e-Sword 10.1 displays multiple comments for a single verse passage in the correct order (e-Sword 10.1 is required for this module).


E-Sword, as a pastor this is bar none the ONE Bible program  recommend as its 'freely you have received, freely give' attitude come thru such as this Lange Commentary which is like a combination of sparkling exegesis only annoying on mainly some ecclesioloy and eschatology sections. Unless you're Luthern! Lange is a brother of another mother and knew his Bible. One of the whole Bible's best thru the yrs.

gostaria de aprender a usar esta estupenda ferramenta,creio que este é um dos maiores comentários biblicos que existe pois ha anos vejo nas bibliografia este autor sendo usado na autoria de outros livros.

Doy gracias a Dios por este precioso material y BENDICIONES a todos quienes se encuentran involucrados en hacer llegar a cada hermano esta preciosa ayuda para fortalecer su vida espiritual y crecimiento en el conocimiento de la palabra de DIOS.

What a great commentary! Thanks so much! I'm using MySword, which doesn't have this latest update - is it possible to release a MySword version? Thanks!

When I use this book in a Chinese Windows, some characters would become chaos characters in nearly each page. This mean the RTF code inside is not clean enough.

Praise God for your life (Josh James Bond).
 
Beloved, I believe that these works are very important for those who have a calling from the Lord .Dou some Hebrew lessons and a little Greek in São Paulo, will be of great value.
The Church of Christ today is in great lack of understanding and insight, clear that the Holy Spirit works 100% in the believer's life.
Take this opportunity to ask the brothers to pray for my life, I need urgent a job and in Brazil in Sao Paulo .But God is in control of everything.

I bought the 1871 edition from a second-hand shop for big bucks, saved up, but was missing 3 volumes, didn't think I would ever get them.  Now I have them, Hallelujah. Note the open discussion style employed by the contributors. So think for yourself, cross-check, study, dig.  e-Sword is advancing the Kingdom.

Does it work on the I Pad ?
