The aim of this commentary is to bring out the religious meaning and message of the New Testament writings. The New Testament was the literature of the early church, written out of faith and for faith, and no study of it is intelligent unless this aim is kept in mind. It is literature written for a religious purpose. Everything ought to be subordinated to the aim of elucidating the religious content, of showing how the faith was held in such and such a way by the first Christians, and of making clear what that faith was and is. As everyman has not Greek, the commentary has been written, as far as possible, for the Greekless. But it is based upon a first-hand study of the Greek original. The general form of the commentary is to provide a running comment on the text, instead of one broken up into separate verses. - Editor's preface
