A series of PDF A5 commentaries that aim to provide a foundation for expository preaching, by assisting pastors with rusty Greek to come to grips with the Koine text of the New Testament. The Greek level is college years 2/3, with a focus on syntax to aid an understanding of the text - accents are only used where necessary. Highly technical issues are avoided. Exposition is guided by the views of respected published commentators. The commentaries also include preces of my own past sermons, serving as homiletic examples to aid the task of preaching. Images used in these sermons are sourced from public domain, unless identified. Please notify for attribution or removal if copyright applies. Where possible, the commentaries are structured to align with the readings of the Revised Common Lectionary. The primary English text used for the commentaries is the NIV / NIV11, but the full text is not provided out of respect for copyright. Corrections are ongoing, with the latest corrected version identified by date on the last page. The identifier "Sid" indicates that the text has been proofread.

St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Crookwell, Australia, 1882.
