Because I already have the information available to me. You have not told me
anything that I don't already know. Simple?
Thanks, Leo enjoy the sun. It is raining in Seattle which is highly
predictable information therefore not significant.
Yes commentaries are getting long. Quality does not seem to be related
directly to quantity. I did a study of Luke several years ago and made use
of Fitzmeyer, D. Bock (aprox. 2,200 pages), A. Plummer (ICC), and I. H.
Marshall (NIGTC). I found Plummer the most useful (shortest) and Fitzmeyer
very helpful. I simply got very tired of wading through D. Bock and I.H.
Marshall wasn't even speaking my language. I am sure that the NIGTC tome on
1Cor will be very thrilling to some folks who want to see the author
interact with all the secondary literature, but I will return it to the
library and forget about it.
