This means that he deals with subjects, rather than a study of the meanings of the original words. On pages xxv-xxxviii, he gives his own translation of I Peter. In footnotes on these pages he does deal with the original Greek at times. Then as he works through the chapters there are footnotes that augment the discussion.
