This commentary on the Hebrews, the General Epistles, and Revelation, excerpted from the Fortress Commentary on the Bible: The New Testament, engages readers in the work of biblical interpretation. Contributors connect historical-critical analysis with sensitivity to current theological, cultural, and interpretive issues.

Each chapter (Hebrews through Revelation) includes an introduction and commentary based on three lenses: ancient context, the interpretative tradition, and contemporary questions and challenges.

Hebrews, the General Epistles, and Revelation introduces fresh perspectives and draws students, preachers, and interested readers into the challenging work of interpretation.
