theWord Version: 3.x - 4.x

Hengstenberg is one of the older, towering names in Evangelical Christianity, perhaps best known for Christology of the Old Testament. Hengstenberg’s books are cited hundreds of times in works such as Pulpit Commentary and Keil & Delitzsch’s Commentary on the OT. The translator/editor of Calvin's Commentaries also makes frequent reference to Hengstenberg.

In these classic commentaries, Hengstenberg calls attention to the messianic prophecies and types of Christ (Adam, Jonah, etc) by evaluating the Old Testament in light of New Testament revelations, such as Christology, Christ's sacrifice, Israel, and the church.

John (3 vols)
This work judiciously ties the book of John to Old Testament background theology. At times it is very provocative (cf. on Jn. 1:15, 30, “He is preferred before me.”.
Hengstenberg examines the theopneuestic nature of the text by studying the character of Christ.

Psalms (3 vols)
This commentary remains widely known, read, and cited. This commentary is considered a solid addition to the personal library of any serious student of the Old Testament.

Revelation (2 vols)
Hengstenberg broke with the tradition of his day, writing a fresh commentary on Revelation. He examines the historical context, thoughts of prevous theologians, and the influence of the Old Testament. In the second volume, Henstenberg explores the Beast from the Sea, the New Jerusalem, and the background to the book and to it’s author, St. John (available in the accompanying Topic file).

Henstenberg also wrote a through introduction to each chapter and to Revelation itself.

Ezekiel (1 vol)
Hengstenberg provides a historical and semantic exposition of Ezekiel. Recognizing the importance of prophecy, Hengstenberg defines connects Ezekiel and other Old Testament prophecy and the eventuality of Israel's actions.

Ecclesiastes (1 vol)
Focusing on misery derived from earthly pursuits, E. W. Hengstenberg offers comprehensive exegesis of the text. Viewing Ecclesiastes as an exhortation from the author, Hengstenberg examines semantic and implicit meaning throughout the book with regard for historical context. The author draws upon acclaimed authors such as Franz Delitzsch and Ferdinand Hitzig to clarify key points and arguments.
