About Dr. Peter Pett's Commentary
In this modernly written verse-by-verse commentary of the Bible (see book exclusions below), Dr. Peter Pett leads the reader through the Scriptures with accuracy and insight. Students and scholars alike will delight at Pett’s clear and direct style, concisely examining the original text, its writers, translations and above all, the God who inspired it.

With 75 megabytes of data, this 50 volume commentary is the sixth largest commentary available on this website (Lange, Biblical Illustrator, Pulpit Commentary, Constable, Calvin, Pett).

(Commentary excludes 1 and 2 Chronicles, Esther, Job, and Psalms 67-150 because the material has not yet been written.)

Notes compiled about Dr. Peter Pett’s Commentary during the module creation process:
  • Scholarly and thorough, yet written in easy to understand language and sentence structure
  • Expositional, not technical, uses some British spelling.
  • Often begins with a discussion of large passages first, with narrowing scope to the verse by verse level.
  • Rejects Calvinism (i.e. man has free will, man is not a robot, etc.)
  • Amillennial (i.e. no literal 1,000 year reign of Christ, no rapture, very strong advocate for this perspective)
  • No baptismal regeneration (i.e. salvation does not occur at baptism, salvation occurs by faith through grace, etc.)
  • Teaches a literal hell and eternal damnation.
  • Supports the triune nature of God (in addition to his commentary, see his article in the Book module)
  • Salvation must occur through Jesus (no multiple roads to Christ, no false gods, no “tolerance”)
theWord Version
Two modules included with this download: Dr. Pett’s commentary and his Book library of materials (articles and books). Dr. Pett occasionally directs the reader to these articles for more information. The Book module is a worthy of release just by itself (but is included in this download). See the end of this file description for the Table of Contents for the Book module.

Module Properly Constructed
This commentary has been published elsewhere over the years, spanning dozens of files in Topic/Book format instead of Commentary format. Those versions were simply copied and pasted, with no thought to formatting, verse/passage division, or real life use. This is not that version.

This version is “done right”, with the most recent source material from Dr. Pett. (The screenshots linked to below show the e-Sword version and so the formatting of our theWord version is slightly different) Special thanks to Dr. Pett, who has the patience of Job. I told Dr. Pett I would make this commentary in August of 2011. But I had not yet developed the tools and methodology for dealing with a large commentary (that I now have). I was overwhelmed, and circled back to it a few times, but it wasn’t until after the Lange commentary that I realized I could now complete this commentary. Even then, it took me a year to circle back to this project. My apologies to Dr. Pett and my gratitude for still letting us use his material.

Dr. Pett’s Official Statement of Faith
We believe in...

The one true God who lives eternally in three personae—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.

The full plenary verbal inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures as originally given in all matters of faith and practice, seeing them as the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

The dignity of all people, made male and female in God's image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgment.

The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

The atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.

The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and His reign and mediation as the only Savior of the world.

The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ alone without works being necessary for justification..

The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

The Church as the body of Christ, united with His body, both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers—given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit's gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.

The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfill the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgment, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.

What's New in Version 2 (See full changelog)

  • Used a beta version of theWord to retooltip the verses to avoid a few versification bugs, such as verses in paranthesis, etc.

You say, "Even then, it took me a year to circle back to this project. My apologies to Dr. Pett and my gratitude for still letting us use his material."

Thanks, bro. We certainly appreciate your labor of love, however long it takes. May God reward your "feeble" efforts towards His kingdom.If the Gospel is not preached to the lost, it will not be because you have not played your part.You have done well. Thanks again.

African Boy
Thanks so much for this
the bullet point about it "rejecting Calvinism" is very misleading. there is an entire articled named "Predestination" that reads pretty Calvinistic to me. just FYI.
