John Owen was a 17th-century English theologian whose Puritan ideals appeared throughout his sermons and published works. One of his most important works was his commentary on the Epistle of Hebrews from the New Testament. This commentary was so massive that, at over 2 million words, it is still “one of the longest commentaries ever published on any New Testament epistle. It also was notable for providing context and references to rabbinical literature.” (Gribben, 235-6).
