Henry Alford (1810-1871)
(Read his fascinating brief biography - Henry Alford and Phil Johnson's related comments)
The New Testament for English Readers
Commentary
on 1Thessalonians

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament...though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (see his comments in following entry on Alford).

Editorial Note: If you are not proficient in Greek, you will find this work considerably more useful than the following work by Alford, because in this volume he translates the Greek and Latin into English. While the "The Greek New Testament" is longer (e.g., English version of 1John = 66 pages compared to Greek version = 94 pages in part because the latter includes comments of more technical nature), the substance of the commentary is otherwise similar to that found in the "NT for English Readers".

Henry Alford
The Greek New Testament
Commentary
on 1Thessalonians

James Rosscup writes that "This was the great work in the life of the versatile Dean of Canterbury. An outcome of this production was the New Testament for English Readers (4 vols.). Alford was a Calvinist, conservative and premillennial, though not dispensational. He takes a literal interpretation of the thousand years in Rev. 20 and has a famous quote there, is strong on sovereign election as in Ro 8:29, 30 and 1Pe 1:2, but, unfortunately, holds to baptismal regeneration in such texts as Titus 3:5 and John 3:5. He shows a great knowledge of the Greek text and faces problems of both a doctrinal and textual nature." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

John Piper writes ""When I’m stumped with a...grammatical or syntactical or logical [question] in Paul, I go to Henry Alford. Henry Alford...comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon writes that this text "is an invaluable aid to the critical study of the text of the New Testament. You will find in it the ripened results of a matured scholarship, the harvesting of a judgment, generally highly impartial, always worthy of respect, which has gleaned from the most important fields of Biblical research, both modern and ancient, at home and abroad. You will not look here for any spirituality of thought or tenderness of feeling; you will find the learned Dean does not forget to do full justice to his own views, and is quite able to express himself vigorously against his opponents; but for what it professes to be, it is an exceedingly able and successful work. The later issues are by far the most desirable, as the author has considerably revised the work in the fourth edition. What I have said of his Greek Testament applies equally to Alford’s New Testament for English Readers,* which is also a standard work." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Albert Barnes
Commentary on 1 Thessalonians

James Rosscup writes that Barnes "includes 16 volumes on the Old Testament, 11 on the New Testament. The New Testament part of this old work was first published in 1832–1851. Various authors contributed. It is evangelical and amillennial...Often the explanations of verses are very worthwhile." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

C H Spurgeon "Albert Barnes is a learned and able divine, but his productions are unequal in value, the gospels are of comparatively little worth, but his other comments are extremely useful for Sunday-school teachers and persons with a narrow range of reading, endowed with enough good sense to discriminate between good and evil....Placed by the side of the great masters, Barnes is a lesser light, but taking his work for what it is and professes to be, no minister can afford to be without it, and this is no small praise for works which were only intended for Sunday-school teachers." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Johann A Bengel
Commentary on 1 Thessalonians
Gnomon of the New Testament
Not Futuristic on Mt 24
Index to Mt-Rev Chapter by Chapter

James Rosscup writes "This work (Gnomon), originally issued in 1742, has considerable comment on the Greek, flavoring the effort with judicious details about the spiritual life. It has much that helps, but has been surpassed by many other commentaries since its day." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

The Critical English Testament

Commentary on
1 Thessalonians
Represents Combination of Bengel's Gnomon (above) and Comments
by more modern expositors (in brackets) to make this more usable for those who do not read Greek.
Not Futuristic on Mt 24
Index to Mt-Rev Chapter by Chapter

Charles Haddon Spurgeon -- "'A Critical New Testament, so compiled as to enable a reader, unacquainted with Greek, to ascertain the exact English force and meaning of the language of the New Testament, and to appreciate the latest results of modern criticism.' Such is the professed aim of this commentary, and the compilers have very fairly carried out their intentions. The whole of Bengel’s Gnomon is bodily transferred into the work, and as one hundred and twenty years have elapsed since the first issue of that book, it may be supposed that much has since been added to the wealth of Scripture exposition; the substance of this has been incorporated in brackets, so as to bring it down to the present advanced state of knowledge. We strongly advise the purchase of this book, as it is multum in parvo, and will well repay an attentive perusal. Tischendorf and Alford have contributed largely, with other German and English critics, to make this one of the most lucid and concise commentaries on the text and teachings of the New Testament" (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Net Bible Notes
Commentary Notes on 1 Thessalonians

Comment:  These are more technical notes on the New English Translation, but often yield some very useful insights. The NET Bible is synchronized with the NET Notes, Constable's Commentary, relevant articles on the Bible.org website and 10 parallel translations. Here are some basic instructions on how to use the free online NETBible Notes - First click this link (you may want to open in a new window to follow the instructions - Hold you pointer over this link and click your Right Mouse button to open menu - choose "Open in New Window"). First notice that at the top there a tab or box labeled "Matthew 1". Click the down arrow on the left side, select book and then the chapter of interest. The Scripture opens to that Book and Chapter and the NETBible Notes automatically synch with the Scripture. Note that instead of the NETBible notes you can select Constable's Notes which also automatically synch as you scroll down the NETBible Scriptures. Click on the Grk/Heb tab and hold your pointer over the Greek (or Hebrew) words to highlight the English word in the NETBible (or hold pointer over the English word to see the corresponding Greek/Hebrew word). The Articles tab also synchronizes with the NETBible and retrieves articles found at Bible.org that mention the NETBible verse you are studying (articles open in a new window). You can increase or decrease the font size by holding down your Control Key and scrolling your Mouse wheel up or down. Now double click on a word like "Abraham" in 1:2 and note that you have a choice to view one of several dictionary articles on Abraham. Notice also that when you click on Abraham, the Articles tab automatically looks up articles that contain the specific chapter/verse associated with the name you clicked (in this case the Articles tab synchs with Mt 1:2NET). The Names tab gives brief descriptions of names (persons and places) mentioned in the text (Interesting!)  Finally, click the "Parallel" tab to compare 10 different Bible translations! There is more but this should get you started!

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
R A Torrey
1 Thessalonians

Note: The best commentary on Scripture is Scripture (Compare Scripture with Scripture) and these cross references compiled by R A Torrey are the most comprehensive work of this type, containing over 500,000 Scripture entries.  Use this tool to help Scripture interpret Scripture and don't base your convictions on an obscure or isolated passage which cannot be supported by more easily understood texts. Clear up problem areas with the clear teaching of other Scriptures relating to the same subject and always check the context (Keep Context King) to make sure that the cross reference is referring to the same subject as the original Scripture. The Puritan writer Thomas Watson said it this way - "The Scripture is to be its own interpreter or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture." See an example of the value of comparing Scripture with Scripture. See also Use of Cross-References

James Rosscup writes "Written by the former President of Dallas Theological Seminary, this expository work represents the premillennial dispensational approach in the crucial passages on future things. It is along the popular line and is not exegetically detailed." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

DOWNLOAD InstaVerse for free. It is an easy to install and simple to use Bible Verse pop up tool that allows you to read cross references in context and in the Version you prefer. Only the  KJV is free with this download but you can also download a free copy of Bible Explorer which in turn offers free Bibles that work with InstaVerse, including  the excellent, literal translation, the English Standard Version (ESV). Other popular versions are available for purchase. When you hold the mouse pointer over a Scripture reference anywhere on the Web (as well as offline in Word for Windows, email, etc) the passage pops up immediately. InstaVerse can be disabled if the popups become distractive. This utility really does work and makes it easy to read the actual passage in context and not just the chapter and verse reference.

 

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, bibliocentric commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (see notes Hebrews 5:14).
