Description : Excerpt from An Exposition of the Old and New Testament, Vol. 5: Wherein Each Chapter Is Summed Up in Its Contents; The Sacred Text Inserted at Large, in Distinct Paragraphs; Each Paragraph Reduced to Its Proper Heads; The Sense Given, and Largely Illustrated With Practical Remarks and Observations Now that these writings, thus made use of to serve these great and noble designs, may have their due influence upon us, it concerns us to be well established in our belief of their divine original. And here we have to do with two sorts of people. Some embrace the Old Testament, but set that up in Opposition to the New, pleading that if that be right this is wrong and these are the Jews. Others, though they live in a christian nation, and by baptism wear the christian name, yet, under pretence of freedom of thought, despise Christianity, and, consequently, reject the New Testament, and therefore the Old, of course.

What reason have we to bless God, that we have liberty to read the Scriptures, and have helps to understand and improve them which we are concerned diligently to make a good use of, that we may not provoke God to give us up into the hands of those powers that would use us in like manner.

Description : Excerpt from An Exposition of the Old and New Testament, Vol. 5: Wherein Each Chapter Is Summed Up in Its Contents; The Sacred d104 Inserted at Large in Distinct Paragraphs; Each Paragraph Reduced to Its Proper Heads; The Sense Given, and Largely Illustrated; Isaiah to Lamentations During the government of the Judges there was a pouring out of the Spirit, but more as a Spirit of skill and courage for war than as a Spirit of prophecy. Deborah is indeed called a prophetess, because of her extraordinary qualifications for judging Israel; but that is the only mention of prophecy, that I remember, in all the book of Judges. Extraordinary messages were sent by angels, as to Gideon and Manoah; and it is expressly said that before the word of the Lord came to Samuel (1 Sam. I) it was precious, it was very scarce, there was no open vision. And it was therefore with more than ordinary solemnity that the word of the Lord came first to Samuel; and by degrees notice and assurance were given to all Israel that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord, 1 Sam. Iii. 20. In Samuel's time, and by him, the schools of the prophets were erected, by which prophecy was dignified and provision made for a succession of prophets for it should seem that in those colleges, hopeful young men were bred up in devotion, in a constant attendance upon the instruction the prophets gave from God, and under a strict discipline, as candidates, or probationers, for prophecy, who were called the sons of the prophets and their religious exercises of prayer, con ference, and psalmody especially, are called prophesyings and their praefect, or president, is called their father, 1 Sam. X. 12. Out of these God ordinarily chose the prophets he sent yet not always Amos was no prophet nor prophet's son (amos vii. Had not his education in the schools of the prophets, and yet was commissioned to go on God's errands, and (which is observable) though he had not academical education himself, yet he seems to speak of it with great respect when he reckons it among the favours God had bestowed upon Israel that he raised up oi their sons for pro phets and of their young men for Nazarites, Amos ii. 11.

Description : Excerpt from An Exposition of the Bible, Vol. 5: A Series of Expositions Covering All the Books of the Old and New Testament; St. Luke-Galatians SO in the mind Of St. Luke the thought ripens into a purpose. Since others have taken in hand to draw up a narrative concerning those matters which have been fulfilled among us, he himself will do the same; for has he not a special fitness for the task, and peculiar advan tages? He has long been intimately associated with those who from the very first were eye witnesses and ministers Of the Word, the chosen companion of one Apostle, and doubtless owing to his visit to Jerusalem and to his prolonged residence at Casarea, personally acquainted with the rest. His shall not be a Gospel of surmise or of rumour; it shall only contain the record of facts - facts which he himself has investigated, and for the truth of which he gives his guar antee. The clause having traced the course of all things accurately from the first - which is a more exact rendering than that of the Author ised Version, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first - shows us the keen, searching eye of the physician. He looks into things. He distinguishes between the To seem and the To be, the actual and the apparent. He takes nothing for granted, but proves all things. He investigates his facts before he eu dorses them, sounding them, as it were, and reading not only their outer voice, which may be assumed, and so untrue, but with his stethoscope Of patient research listening for the unconscious voices that speak within, and so finding out the reality. He himself is committed to nothing. He is not anxious to make up a story. Himself a searcher after truth, his one concern is to know, and then to tell, the truth, naturally, simply, with no fictitious adornment or dressing up of his Own. And having submitted the facts of the Divine Life to a close scrutiny, and satisfied himself Of their absolute truth, and having. Thrown aside the many guesses and fables which somehow have woven themselves around the wonderful Name, he will write down, in historical order as far as may be, the story, so that his friend Theophilus may know the certainty of the things in.which he has been instructed, or orally catechised, as the word would mean.

Description : In the controversy over the role of women in the church, complementarians/hierarchists routinely claim to be upholding the "traditional" position. Like the little boy who declared that "the emperor has no clothes," J. G. Brown exposes the fallacies in this claim. The authentic traditional interpretation of passages such as 1 Timothy 2:11-14 differs substantially from contemporary readings, whether egalitarian or hierarchist. Most prominent Protestant exegetes--from Luther and Calvin through those in the early nineteenth century--understood creation ordinances (male headship/female subordination) as foundational to the temporal world, not the church. An Historian Looks at 1 Timothy 2:11-14 brings history and theology together in a fresh way, with startling implications for the ongoing debate.

Description : The keystone of Christianity is Jesus's physical, bodily resurrection. Present-day scholars can be significantly challenged as they forage through voluminous documents on the resurrection of Jesus. The literature measures well over seven thousand sources in English-language books alone. This makes finding specific sources that are most relevant for specific scholarly purposes an arduous task. Even when a specific book is relevant, finding the parts of the book that are most relevant to the resurrection rather than other topics often requires additional effort. A Thematic Access-Oriented Bibliography of Jesus's Resurrection addresses these challenges in several ways. First, the bibliography organizes more than seven thousand English sources into twelve main categories and then thirty-four subcategories, which are designed to help you find the most relevant literature quickly and efficiently. Embedded are pro and con arguments which support efficient access through brief annotations and then annotate the diversity and complexity of the field of religion by including sources that represent a diverse range of views: theistic (e.g., Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc.), agnostic, and nontheistic. The objective of this bibliography is to provide convenient access to relevant sources from a variety of perspectives, allowing you to browse or find the one source accurately and with ease.

Description : In God I trust The prophet Daniel was a man both tested and exalted. His commitment to the Lord God Almighty never fluctuated. He relied upon God for both life-saving miracles and the smallest of provisions. In this intriguing book, we will examine this one man’s unwavering faith in his God, beginning from the time that he arrived in Babylon as a young Jew and continuing throughout his years of service under the authority of several kings and kingdoms. There is perhaps no better example of godly faith, dependency, trust, and worship than in the character of the prophet Daniel. He was faithful to God and commendable before men. "This chapter by chapter and verse-by-verse exegesis of the wonderful prophetic work of Daniel—in itself one of the most readable books of the Bible—is a triumph. This major collaborative undertaking provides a format for devotional study that challenges any other work of its kind. For any reader with a thirst for irrefutable Bible knowledge, this scholarly but practical approach to the study of Daniel is enthusiastically recommended." The Late Dr. James Kennedy, Ph.D Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

Description : Bengel's work on the New Testament is a valuable resource for modern students of the Scriptures. In 1734, he published a carefully prepared Greek text of the New Testament with an "Apparatus criticus," which formed the point of departure for modern New Testament textual criticism. His famous canon was: "The more difficult reading is to be preferred." This critical work was followed by an exegetical one, Gnomon Novi Testamenti (Tubingen, 1742). As a brief and suggestive commentary on the New Testament, the Gnomon is still of considerable use today. Bengel's chief principle of interpretation, briefly stated, is to read nothing into the Scriptures, but to draw everything from them, and suffer nothing to remain hidden that is really in them. His Gnomon exerted considerable influence on exegesis in Germany, and John Wesley translated most of its notes and incorporated them into his Annotatory Notes upon the New Testament (London, 1755). A. Hauck, Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge. This volume is 5 of a 5 volume set. Each volume is sold separately.

Description : The topic of hell has held a strange fascination for believers through the centuries, becoming the subject of paintings, sermons, books, articles, and much more. For many it has been a source of terror, for most a wellspring of questions. Is there such a thing as hell? How long will it last? Who will go there? Is hell fair? In this study, Kim Papaioannou tackles the topic at its most foundational level, in the words and teaching of Jesus. Rather than attempt overarching and all-encompassing answers, he begins instead with a detailed study of the relevant texts and builds from there upwards. The result is a picture that is not only coherent and satisfying, but more importantly, solidly based on biblical exegesis of the most refined nature. Papaioannou concludes by putting hell into a more palatable and biblically sound perspective. Though unreservedly scholarly, the study is written in such a way that lay readers can understand and enjoy it.

Description : In clearly described themes, this commentary on the book of Luke takes readers on a journey of discovery, finding Jesus Christ, not only the light for Israel, but for people of all nations. As the only Gentile writer found in the New Testament Scriptures, Luke provides a view of Jesus as the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy: “Arise! Shine! Your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has dawned. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn” (Isaiah 60:1, 3, GWT). As one of the New Testament volumes in Practical Christianity Foundation's Easy-to-Read Commentary series, Luke: Jesus Christ, Savior for the Nations engages readers in an intelligent yet understandable study of God's Word. It is written in a style that makes God's Word come to life in a personal, meaningful way. The study is divided into sections, between six and eight verses, with each section concluding with a “Notes/Applications” passage, which draws practical insight from the related verses that can be applied to the reader's Christian walk. The intent is that the reader will complete one section per day, gain a greater understanding of the verses, and be challenged daily toward a deeper commitment to the Lord. Also included at certain points within the text are “Dig Deeper” boxes to assist readers who desire to invest additional time to study topics that relate to the designated section. This study impacts the lives of all believers, regardless of age, ethnicity, or education.
