If The Type Gives Confidence

"The angel feared the blood [Exodus 12:23]; for he knew of what it was a Type; he shuddered, thinking on the Lord's death; therefore he did not touch the door-posts. Moses said, Smear, and they smeared, and were confident. And you, having the Blood of the Lamb Himself, are ye not confident?" (John Chrysostom, Homilies On Hebrews, 27:1)

New Recommendations For Biblical Commentaries And Other Resources

Steve Hays' Old Testament and New Testament bibliography is no longer being updated, but one of the resources he recommended there is. Denver Seminary recently updated their own Old Testament and New Testament bibliographies. Steve kept his bibliography updated until close to the time of his death, and it's still a great resource. But you should supplement it with other resources that address what's come out since Steve's death. He included references to upcoming commentaries of interest, and you can supplement those recommendations with Denver Seminary's.
