Biblical Studies eBooks: Old Testament Commentaries

This guide is designed to introduce biblical studies (Hebrew Bible and New Testament) eBooks to graduate level students for their coursework and research.


This guide is intended to help students find online access to scholarly commentaries on every book of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. These guides will vary in academic "rigor" ranging from purely academic to pastoral in nature. The idea is to give students a broad range so that they can choose what best suits their needs for a given situation; whether it be for an academic exegesis paper or to help write a sermon.

Please remember that these are not all the commentaries available; these are just suggestions. Unfortunately not all publishers have made all of their works available digitally. There might also be excellent commentaries that are not on these lists; to find out everything that GCTS has on a certain book use the search the LIBRARY CATALOG.
