Need Orthodox Old Testament Commentaries
« on: August 03, 2011, 11:18:04 PM »
Hi,

I am currently in the process of reading the whole canon of the Holy Scriptures and I was wondering if someone could help me find some Orthodox resources on the Old Testament in order to avoid "individual interpretation".

Thanks.
Nicholas.

To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

Sadly I'm not educated in Greek yet.
