File Name: The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (54 vols)

File Submitter: Josh Bond

File Submitted: 13 Jul 2013

File Category: Commentaries

Author: Perowne, J. J. S.
e-Sword Version: 9.x - 10.x

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (referred to below as "Cambridge Commentary") was the first commentary set published by Cambridge University Press.

Cambridge Commentary versus Cambridge Greek Commentary
This Cambridge Commentary 1) Covers the Old and New Testaments and 2) has a more accessible writing style than it's Greek counterpart. Specifically, this Cambridge Commentary removes most of the Greek words and technical discussion found in the Cambridge Greek Commentary. Many New Testament portions of this Cambridge Commentary have been reworded or paraphrased for a less technical, exegetical audience.

About the Cambridge Commentary
More than 30 bible scholars, preachers, and theologians wrote the Cambridge Commentary—including names you have likely seen before: H. C. G. Moule, F. W. Farrar, Alfred Plummer, Herbert Edward Ryle, S. R. Driver, J. Skinner, and A. T. Chapman (see below for complete list). This set provides a comprehensive, holistic examination of the Bible, including history, original language analysis, outlines, literary analysis and verse by verse comments. The General Editor of the set was J. J. S. Perowne, Dean of Peterborough.

e-Sword Edition
The e-Sword edition spans 90 megabytes and contains over 29,000 verse comments, not including Book and Chapter comments.

The download includes the main commentary (cambridge.cmtx) and a Reference Library Book module, An Introduction to the Pentateuch by A. T. Chapman (Chapman, A. T - Introduction to the Pentateuch.refx).

Reviews
Many of the individual volumes were reviewed by press when they were released.

Wow! Just wow!  I've seen this collection on the shelves of libraries but I did not think I would acquire a copy.  These works are from the greatest minds of the 19th and early 20th century.  Thank you, Josh.  Wow!

Excellent work, Josh.  But I did spot one error. In the commentary on Acts 5:2 you referenced Judges 11, when the actual attribution should have been JUDE 11 (or if you want it tool tipped Jud_1:11).

 

They thought more of the display made at the Apostles’ feet than of the offence before God’s eyes. And we know from St Peter’s Epistle (2Pe_2:3) that it was soon foretold that men would arise in the Christian community, who “through covetousness would with feigned words make merchandise of” the society, and at a later date (Judges 11), these men are described as those who run “greedily after the error of Balaam for reward.” We may therefore be convinced that in the example of Ananias we have a typical instance of the kind of offence into which at this time the Christian community was in danger of being tempted.
 


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)
 

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.
