Heinrich Meyer's Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (20 volumes) is also called Meyer's Commentary. This is verse by verse, Greek, exegetical commentary—over 40 megabytes of text!
For Greek text and grammar, Meyer's Commentary was the best at the time it was written and is frequently cited by contemporary authors. With a heavy emphasis on text and grammar, Meyer addresses the questions of the text. Meyer also serves a synopses of other authors' viewpoints, many of which are long since unavailable without hours of work with inter-library loans. Although you may not agree with every conclusion, the analysis is invaluable.
Meyer represents the synthesis of German theology in the same vein as J. P. Lange's Commentary, except without the homiletical analysis. Philip Schaff, who edited the American Edition of Lange's Commentary, said Meyer's Commentary is, " The ablest grammatical exegete of the age".
Meyer's Commentary also made Cyril Barber's list of recommended commentaries for preachers. In The Minister's Library Volume 1, page 83, Barber writes Meyer's Commentary is "marked by fine scholarship … and close attention is paid to critical details. Theology is blended with exegesis in expounding the text.
Who's Who in Christian History (1992) said Meyer's Commentary "sets a standard for modern critical exegesis of the New Testament; it is a series that continues to be consulted by scholars."
About Heinrich Meyer
Meyer was born in Gotha and studied theology at the University of Jena. Thereafter he taught in a private school at Grone and then pastored churches in various German cities from 1822 to 1848. In addition to pastoring, he devoted his time to writing commentaries on the New Testament based on the principle of historico–grammatical exegesis. A life long project, he started Meyer's Commentary at age 27. He worked on and revised the commentary set until age 72. Meyer also worked on the revision of Luther’s translation of the Bible
