International Critical Commentary New Testament
The ICC (International Critical Commentary) is a set of commentaries published ~1900,
and now in the public domain. It’s target audience was academic; and it leans decidedly
to the left. However, there are some helpful volumes in the set, and it is not without
any merit at all. One must be a discerning reader of all modules - and especially
of liberal ones.
I don’t typically recommend modules with a decidedly liberal bias; but academically,
these modules are still often referred to. For a seminary quality personal library,
these volumes are a real boon (notice I didn’t use the word “blessing;” that was
Right now, most of the NT volumes are available for both eSword and TheWord (they
are missing Acts, Petrine Epistles, & Revelation). The formatting is a little rough,
and it is chapter by chapter, but it is certainly very usable. Here are the download
International Critical Commentary New Testament eSTW
WordModule.com’s “blcjr” is currently working on a major module reformat of these
volumes. He is releasing them individually as he makes them, and will combine them
at the end. He has put them into a very helpful verse by verse format; and even has
lots of hyperlinks included. When finalized, it will be one of the most intensively
built commentary sets for TW. Unfortunately for our eSword friends, Basil’s reformat
is only available in TW format. Until Basil is finished (and perhaps even after!),
we will make the individual volumes available right here.
By The Way -- These individual books make excellent resources for New Testament Greek
Exegetical work. For information on how to set up TheWord to do in depth Greek exegesis,
read my “New Testament Exegesis Using Free Resources Available For TheWord”. (Just
don’t forget to plug these individual modules into the “inline commentaries” when
you exegete from these New Testament books!)
blcjr has combined his finalized individual modules into one multi- module. It is
not finished. But it is his “up to the datest” work.
Current version is 0.50.
It does not have any of the chapter by chapter information contained in the current
ICCNT commentary. And it will overwrite your previous commentary. So - if you want
access to all of the chapter by chapter information contained in the current commentary,
do not download and install this module. If you want only the beautiful verse by
verse comments of the finished releases, then go ahead and install this module.
blcjr has made two additional historical modules available for hyperlinking between
modules. One of them is The Apocrypha; the other is some NT church fathers. These
modules are included here because the ICCNT makes references to these titles, and
blcjr is building the hyperlinks to these modules. I think they will be helpful for
