I was curious if there were any Bible's that had commentary from St. John Chrysostom. I found this http://www.amazon.com/Chrysostom-Bible-Genesis-Commentary/dp/1601910088

But I was curious if I could find more resources that are a bit more extensive. Thank you.

Thank you for the links, I will just buy it in one volume, however what is your take on this review?

I agree with this: "In Orthodoxy it is best to read the scriptures along with the early church fathers to get a better understanding of the texts interpretation, and proper meaning."

It's good to see that they finished it. Either last year or the year before I saw that they were working on it. I first saw it at this website:

The other commenters already replied, defending the original greek and the ONT. Here is just one of many: Peter A. Papoutsis says, "St. John Chrysostom does. He interprets the Greek word MALAKOS as masturbator or masterbation. This is still the connotation used in Modern Greek. Thus the ONT does have patristic support for this translation."
