Epistle of St James: Greek Text with Introduction, Commentary as Far as Chapter IV, Verse 7, and Additional Notes

by Fenton John Anthony Hort


After publishing the incredibly influential New Testament in the Original Greek in 1881, Hort collaborated with his friends B. F. Westcott and J. B. Lightfoot in order to write a commentary on each of the Greek New Testament books. Unfortunately, the three friends left their commentary unfinished, although several fragments and manuscripts were published posthumously. This fragment contains verse-by-verse commentary on the Epistle of James up to chapter four, verse seven. Because Hort deals with the ancient Greek text directly rather than in translation, his commentary is of an academic nature. It reflects its author’s scholarship and brilliance, as does virtually all of Hort’s work with the Greek language.
