Description : In this work, published 20 years after his first commentary on the Apocalypse, Pierre Prigent deals once again with the Apocalypse, but this time with the numerous exegetical, historical and sociological studies which were published during the last 20 years and are significant for research in this field, in particular for methodology and Jewish literature. Pierre Prigent focuses on the historical and the religious contexts. In the historical context, he describes how in the first century it was revealed to the churches in Asia Minor that the highest reality of living things and objects was given its justification through the work of God in Jesus Christ. This revelation shook the history of the church and of the world. In the religious context, the author deals with the eschatological revelations against the backdrop of Judaism.Faced with the mass of information which needed to be taken into account, he resolved to proceed in two directions: Everything that concerns the exegesis of specific texts has been introduced at the appropriate places in the commentary, which has resulted in a great number of additions and corrections and considerable elimination. Often the work of biblical scholars has taken a more synthetic turn. Their conclusions, which are then of interest for the interpretation of several passages or even of the entire book, would be out of place in the flow of the commentary. It so happens that the questions addressed are often of primary importance and sometimes are the object of hot debate. Therefore the author decided to give an overview of the current state of research on the questions leading to such conclusions to give an adequate account of these synthetic analyses.

Description : Since its appearance nearly 35 years ago, Black's New Testament Commentary Series has been hailed by both scholars and pastors for its insightful interpretations and reliable commentary. Each book in the series includes: an insightful introduction to the important historical, literary, and theological issues; key terms and phrases from the translation highlighted in the commentary where they are discussed; explanations of special Greek or foreign terms; references to important primary and secondary literature; and a Scripture index."To Dr. Caird" and this is the main thing" the Apocalypse preaches the authentic gospel; 'John's doctrine of salvation, like that of the New Testament as a whole, is in three tenses, ' but 'it is characteristic of his visions that the tenses are constantly interfused, ' for 'the end is not an event but a person, the first and the last. . . .'"" F. F. Bruce, "Evangelical Quarterly"

Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... (6) Columns for Discount on Purchases and Discount on Notes on the same side of the Cash Book; (c) Columns for Discount on Sales and Cash Sales on the debit side of the Cash Book; (d) Departmental columns in the Sales Book and in the Purchase Book. Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger." The Balance Sheet.--In the more elementary part of the text, the student learned how to prepare a Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the purpose of disclosing the net capital of an enterprise. In the present chapter he was shown how to prepare a similar statement, the Balance Sheet. For all practical...

Description : In this major, paradigm-shifting commentary on Revelation, internationally respected author Francis Moloney brings his keen narrative and exegetical work to bear on one of the most difficult, mysterious, and misinterpreted texts in the biblical canon. Challenging the assumed consensus among New Testament scholars, Moloney reads Revelation not as an exhortation to faithfulness in a period of persecution but as a celebration of the ongoing effects of Jesus's death and resurrection. Foreword by Eugenio Corsini.

Description : The Book of Revelation, often called the Apocalypse of St. John, is one of the central texts of the New Testament. Yet, despite its importance, it is frequently the most misunderstood work in the entire Bible. St. Jerome tells us that "The Apocalypse has as many mysteries as words -- or rather mysteries in every word." Reverend Elwood Sylvester Berry here explains in a simple scholarly way each section of St. John's work to help us view this essential text with pleasure and understanding. Dividing the Book into three parts, Berry helps the reader comprehend the meaning of St. John's words and places them within the fascinating context of the time that they were written. Part I covers from the days of St. John to the opening of the abyss, Part II from the opening of the abyss to its closing and Part III covers from the closing of the abyss to the end of the world. As Revelation 1:3 states Blessed is he that readeth and heareth the words of this prophecy; and keepeth those things which are written in it. Berry's fascinating work should aid any reader wishing to truly hear and understand the words of this prophecy. Reverend Elwood Sylvester Berry was professor at Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Maryland. He wrote a number of commentaries on the Bible, The Apocalypse of St. John, published in 1921, was one of his first. He died in 1954.

Description : George Caird's commentary on Revelation was a masterpiece of clarity and accessibility. However, Revelation scholarship has moved on since Caird wrote, and Ian Boxall's new commentary engages with these more recent developments. Much work has been done on the nature of apocalyptic. Boxall's book contains a more substantial introduction which explores the nature of Revelation as a visionary text, emphasizes the author's Patmos context, and pays more attention to the overall structure of the work. It also engages with the Apocalypse's rich and varied reception history.

Description : As the only book of its kind in the New Testament, Revelation can be difficult to understand, and for readers without specialized training, the historical-critical approach used in many commentaries can provide more complication than illumination. Here James Resseguie applies the easily understandable tools introduced in his primer on narrative criticism to this challenging book. He shows how Revelation uses such features as rhetoric, setting, character, point of view, plot, symbolism, style, and repertoire to construct its meaning. This literary approach draws out the theological and homiletical message of the book and highlights its major unifying themes: the need to listen well, an overwhelmingly God-centered perspective, and the exodus to a new promised land. Here is a valuable aid for pastor and serious lay reader alike.

Description : The nature of Jewish-Christian relations at the end of the first century has been a subject of serious study and considerable debate. The time between 70 and 150 CE is held to be a volatile time in that Jewish-Christian relations were quickly, although not uniformly, deteriorating. This is a time referred to as the partings of the ways, when the church was emerging as a religion apart from Judaism. Although it has often been neglected in this study, of particular interest is the Apocalypse of John, since it was written in this dark and turbulent time in Jewish-Christian relations. John, who is a Jewish Christian, is writing to what are likely predominantly Gentile churches. At first, he appears to deny the very name Jew to his ethnic kin while accusing them of belonging to Satan (2:9; 3:9). Nevertheless, he does not abandon his own Jewish background and theology. He makes broad use of the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish cultic imagery while maintaining a Christian understanding that Jesus is the fulfillment of God's redemptive plan. What is of particular interest is how he adopts and adapts this imagery and language and applies it to the church. It is John's mix of Jewish imagery with a Christian message that may provide some insight into his perspective on the relationship between these two increasingly polarized sects. What exactly this perspective is constitutes the subject of the present discussion.

Description : Many commentaries on the Apocalypse were produced in the early Middle Ages. This book provides translations of two Apocalypse commentaries from the seventh and eighth centuries. On the Mysteries of the Apocalypse of John is part of a large one-volume "Reference Bible" composed about 750. Written probably by an Irish teacher residing in northern France, it answers difficulties arising from the biblical text. The Handbook on the Apocalypse of the Apostle John, attributed erroneously to Jerome and written before 767, contains brief moral and allegorical interpretations of particular words and phrases of the Apocalypse. The introduction highlights the unique features of each commentary and the interrelationship of the three texts.


The Throne Motif In The Book Of Revelation

Description : This book argues that the throne motif constitutes the major interpretive key to the complex structure and theology of the book of Revelation. In the first part of the book, Gallusz examines the throne motif in the Old Testament, Jewish literature and Graeco-Roman sources. He moves on to devote significant attention to the throne of God texts of Revelation and particularly to the analysis of the throne-room vision (chs. 4&5), which is foundational for the development of the throne motif. Gallusz reveals how Revelation utilizes the throne motif as the central principle for conveying a theological message, since it appears as the focus of the author from the outset to the climax of the drama. The book concludes with an investigation into the rhetorical impact of the motif and its contribution to the theology of Revelation. Gallusz finally shows that the throne, what it actually represents, is of critical significance both to Revelation's theism and to God's dealing with the problem of evil in the course of human history.
