Writing in the tradition of biblical exegetes, such as St John
Chrysostom and Blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria, the work of
Archbishop Averky (Taushev) provides a commentary that is firmly
grounded in the teaching of the Church, manifested in its
liturgical hymnography and the works of the Holy Fathers. Analysing
all four Gospels chronologically and simultaneously, he allows
readers to see the life of Christ as an unfolding narrative in
accessible, direct language. Using the best of prerevolutionary
Russian sources, these writings also remained abreast of
developments in Western biblical scholarship, engaging with it
directly and honestly. He approaches the Gospels first and foremost
not as a literary work of antiquity, but as the revelation of Jesus
Christ as God in the flesh. Archbishop Averky's commentaries on the
New Testament have become standard textbooks in Holy Trinity
Orthodox Seminary and have been published in Russia to widespread
acclaim. This present volume is the first translation of these
texts into English and it is an indispensable addition to the
library of every student of the Gospels.
