This classic Orthodox commentary on the Gospels was written about the year 1100 A.D. by the brilliant and saintly Orthodox hierarch, Blessed Theophylact of Ochrid. His commentary has remained a primary text of New Testament interpretation throughout the Orthodox world, in Greece, Russia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania. Blessed Theophylact distills the teaching of the earlier Church Fathers, especially Saint John Chrysostom, in language that is profound, powerful, and direct. Translated from the Greek text.
