Description : Creation, Fall and Redemption is a verse-by-verse commentary of the foundational book of the Bible, Genesis 111. Pastor Bill takes the reader through a devotional and informative tour of the Creation, fall of man, Cain and Abel, the creation of the first city, the development of civilization, the conditions leading to the flood, and the Tower of Babel, and the division of humanity. This book shows us that not only are the early chapters of Genesis about our beginnings but they also foreshadow the end times and final judgments of the Lord upon this earth. But the book is also a testament to the salvation of God, right from the beginning, through the seed of the woman promise, which is the key to unlocking all of the Book of Genesis.

Description : As no part of the Bible is to be considered more important than any other part and there are no words of Scripture that we can do without, the words of Genesis 1:1""11:26 are not considered any more or less important or noteworthy than another set of eleven chapters randomly found in Scripture. These eleven chapters do, however, form the beginning of God's word to us and we are presented with history on a universal scale. In my opinion, it is the most sensible place to begin learning about our heavenly Father and about His eternal plan. This approach will give a Bible student the fundamental knowledge that is essential to understanding all remaining Scripture. This commentary will cover topics such as: 1. The Creation of the Heaven and the Earth by God in Eternity Past (Gen. 1:1) and the Ruin in which they Ended (Gen. 1:2). 2. The Six Days of Creation in Time Present (Gen. 1:2""31), Including the (Sixth Day) Creation of all "mankind," both "male and female" (Gen. 1:27), and the Blessing by God of the Seventh Day (Gen. 2:1""3). 3. The Generations of the Heavens and of the Earth (Gen. 2:4-4:26). 4. The (Sixth Day) Formation of Adam (Gen. 2:7), the Creation of Eve (Gen. 2:22), and Their Stay in the Garden of Eden (2:8-25). 5. The Beguiling of Adam and Eve by Satan (Gen. 3:1-7); the Punishment Determined by God upon Satan, Eve, and Adam (Gen. 3:8-24). 6. The Promise of a Savior (Gen. 3:15). 7. The Birth of Cain and Abel; the Murder of Abel by Cain, and the Lineage of Cain (Gen. 4:1-24). 8. The Lineage of Adam and the Antediluvian, or Pre-Flood, Patriarchs (Gen. 5:1-31). 9. The Fallen Angels and their Progeny; the Giants (Gen. 6:1-7). 10. Grace found only in Noah (Gen. 6:8). 11. The Pedigree of Noah; the Ark, and the Flood (Gen. 6:9-9:29). 12. The Generations of the Sons of Noah (Gen. 10:1-31). 13. Nimrod and the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:1-9). 14. The Generations of Shem (Gen. 11:10-26). In addition, below each verse of the eleven chapters covered selected words will be highlighted and both the equivalent Hebrew translation of the word, as well as its definition will be given. *Definitions given are from The New Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible

Description : In Foundations of the Gospel , Kuldip Singh Gangar challenges prevailing nonliteral readings of Genesis 1–3. Against various old-earth views of world origins, Gangar argues that believers can read the Bible at face value and trust the historical accuracy of its account of creation. As the author says, “If at the beginning we cannot take God’s Word at face value, then we are left wondering whether other passages should also be read that way or not.” Gangar’s apologetic commentary provides a defense of young earth creationism, showing how modern concerns are most reliably addressed with traditional biblical interpretation.

This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship. Overview of Commentary Organization Introduction—covers issues pertaining to the whole book, including context, date, authorship, composition, interpretive issues, purpose, and theology. Each section of the commentary includes: Pericope Bibliography—a helpful resource containing the most important works that pertain to each particular pericope. Translation—the author’s own translation of the biblical text, reflecting the end result of exegesis and attending to Hebrew and Greek idiomatic usage of words, phrases, and tenses, yet in reasonably good English. Notes—the author’s notes to the translation that address any textual variants, grammatical forms, syntactical constructions, basic meanings of words, and problems of translation. Form/Structure/Setting—a discussion of redaction, genre, sources, and tradition as they concern the origin of the pericope, its canonical form, and its relation to the biblical and extra-biblical contexts in order to illuminate the structure and character of the pericope. Rhetorical or compositional features important to understanding the passage are also introduced here. Comment—verse-by-verse interpretation of the text and dialogue with other interpreters, engaging with current opinion and scholarly research. Explanation—brings together all the results of the discussion in previous sections to expose the meaning and intention of the text at several levels: (1) within the context of the book itself; (2) its meaning in the OT or NT; (3) its place in the entire canon; (4) theological relevance to broader OT or NT issues. General Bibliography—occurring at the end of each volume, this extensive bibliography contains all sources used anywhere in the commentary.

Description : Kevin Giles has been writing on women in the Bible for over forty years. In this book, What the Bible Actually Teaches on Women, he gives the most comprehensive account to date of the competing conclusions to this question and the issues surrounding it. To understand the bitter and divisive debate among evangelicals over the status and ministry of women, it needs to be understood that those who since 1990 have called themselves “complementarians” argue that in creation before the fall God set the man over the woman. Thus, the leadership of the man and the subordination of the woman in the home, the church, and wherever possible in the world (the whole creation) is the God-given ideal that is pleasing to God. It is this “theology” that Kevin Giles deconstructs and shows to be without a biblical foundation. Giles shows that he is fully conversant with the complementarian position and yet is unpersuaded by it. He sees it as an appeal to the Bible to preserve male privilege, similar to the appeals to the Bible to validate slavery and Apartheid; appeals to the Bible made by some of the best Reformed and evangelical biblical scholars, and now seen to be special pleading. Carefully studying the limited number of texts on which complementarians predicate their theology of the sexes, Giles finds not one of them actually teaches what complementarians claim. Furthermore, complementarians too often ignore the texts that are very difficult for them. In this book the ordination of women gets only passing mention. The constant focus is on whether or not the Bible subordinates women to men as an abiding theological principle.

Description : Joseph Blenkinsopp provides a new commentary on Genesis 1-11, the so-called 'Primeval History' in which the account of creation is given. Blenkinsopp works with the conviction that, from a biblical point of view, creation cannot be restricted to a single event, nor to two versions of an event (as depicted in Genesis 1-3) but, rather, must take in the whole period of creation arranged in the sequence: creation - uncreation - recreation (as can be derived from Genesis 1-11). Through the course of the commentary, presented in continuous discussion rather than in a rigid verse-by-verse form, Blenkinsopp takes into account pre-modern interpretations of the texts, especially in the Jewish interpretative tradition, as well as modern, historical-critical interpretations. Blenkinsopp works from the perspective of acknowledging the text's literary integrity as an 'authored' work, rather than focusing simply on the its background in various sources (whilst of course paying due attention to those sources). This enables Blenkinsopp's engaging discussion to focus upon the literary and theological artistry of the material at hand.

Description : This book is a collection of verse-by-verse reflections on the first three chapters of Genesis, delving deeply into God's loving intentions in creating the whole universe out of the abundance of his goodness, and in particular creating man and woman as the apex of his creative work. In the image and likeness of God, they are called to intimacy with one another and with him, an intimacy that is gratuitously beautiful and desirable for its own sake, and which also allows God's own light and beauty to pour forth freely into the creation and to take the whole world, in the love of man and woman, into the inner life of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which is the Origin and Consummation of all things.

Description : Christian apologist Ben Smith believes that the creation account in Genesis 1 can be read literally and historically as a real week of seven normal days without contradicting modern astronomy and geology regarding the age of the universe and Earth. Many Christians are divided over how to reconcile Genesis with modern science, and this book evaluates all of the major options, ultimately concluding that the Bible allows for an old universe and Earth in a way that is also scientifically accurate. A former Young Earth creationist, Smith now believes that the age of creation is not specified in the Bible, and therefore scientists are free to answer the question. He believes that Christians should not hide from the controversy over the age of the Earth, but should take a fresh look at the text and be impressed with its accuracy.

Description : Much controversy surrounds the opening chapters of Genesis. They are front-loaded with all manner of vital topics--such as God's work of creating the world and mankind; what it means to be human; why our present experience is so different from what we find in Genesis 2; how we come to know God and to be sure of his love. Collins employs a literary-theological method informed by contemporary discourse analysis in order to read passages as coherent wholes. He shows how later biblical and inter-testamental writers have used Genesis 1-4 and reflects on how these chapters shape a Christian worldview today.

Description : The rich tapestry of the creation narrative in the early chapters of Genesis proved irresistible to the thoughtful, reflective minds of the church fathers. Within them they found the beginning threads from which to weave a theology of creation, fall and redemption. Following their mentor, the apostle Paul, they explored the profound significance of Adam as a type of Christ, the second Adam. The six days of creation proved especially attractive among the fathers as a subject for commentary, with Basil the Great and Ambrose producing well-known Hexaemerons. Similarly, Augustine devoted portions of five works to the first chapter of Genesis. As in previous volumes within the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture, the range of comment contained in Genesis 1--11 spans from the first century to the eighth, from East to West, and from Greek and Latin speakers to Syriac. Especially helpful in this volume is editor Andrew Louth's supply of Septuagintal alternative readings to the Masoretic text, which are often necessary to understanding the fathers' flow of thought. Genesis 1--11 opens up a treasure house of ancient wisdom--allowing these faithful witnesses, some appearing here in English translation for the first time, to speak with eloquence and intellectual acumen to the church today.

Description : An amazing book that will leave the reader uneasy and surprised by the synergy between the biblical text and modern science. In this work, Bishop Robson Rodovalho and Professor Gerald Schroeder take a fantastic journey into the unknown, taking a scientific look at the text of the Holy Scriptures and bringing new insights that may surprise readers who are used to traditional biblical translations. In an extensive work, the authors guided their study in the translation of the Bible in ancient Hebrew, drawing a parallel with modern cosmology and the most recent experiments in Quantum Physics. The authors argue that, although the Bible is not a scientific manual, it does contain statements with scientific implications. They cite as examples the creation of the Universe, the origin and development of life. For this very reason, in this work, they argue that contrary to what many people think, there is no need for a dichotomy between Science and the Bible. for the authors, the original biblical texts are consistent with scientific points of view and with the discoveries of modern physics, cosmology, biology, anthropology, geology, history, chemistry, mathematics, sociology and neurology.

Description : The translation and publication of the great scholar Cornelius a Lapide's commentary on the first three chapters of the Book of Genesis is the latest in a series of on-going efforts by the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation to demonstrate that the literal historical interpretation of Genesis enjoys the support, not only of all of the Apostles, Fathers and Doctors of the Church, but of the greatest Catholic exegetes of the last 500 years. As the biographical sketch of Lapide below demonstrates, he was an exegete in the tradition of the Fathers of the Church who combined exceptional learning with great sanctity. His interpretation of the first three chapters of Genesis draws upon three thousand years of Hebrew and Catholic exegesis, revealing an intimate knowledge of all of the major commentaries on the Bible of the Latin and Greek Fathers and Doctors. This magnificent work ought to destroy once and for all the absurd claim that protestant fundamentalist innovators invented the literal historical interpretation of Genesis 1.

Description : Teaching and researching the Gospel of John for thirty years has led author Mary L. Coloe to an awareness of the importance of the wisdom literature to make sense of Johannine theology, language, and symbolism: in the prologue, with Nicodemus, in the Bread of Life discourse, with Mary and Lazarus, and in the culminating “Hour.” She also shows how the late Second Temple theology expressed in the books of Sirach and Wisdom, considered deuterocanonical and omitted from some Bible editions, are essential intertexts. Only the book of Wisdom speaks of “the reign of God” (Wis 10:10), “eternity life” (Wis 5:15), and the ambrosia maintaining angelic life (Wis 19:21)—all concepts found in John’s Gospel. While the Gospel explicitly states the Logos was enfleshed in Jesus, this is also true of Sophia. Coloe makes the case that Jesus’s words and deeds embody Sophia throughout the narrative. At the beginning of each chapter Coloe provides text from the later wisdom books that resonate with the Gospel passage, drawing Sophia out of the shadows.

Description : Do the writings of the church fathers support a literalist interpretation of Genesis 1? Young earth creationists have maintained that they do. But are we correctly representing the Fathers and their concerns? This study from Craig Allert resets our understanding of early Christian interpretation and considers whether contemporary evangelicals may be more bound to modernity in our reading of Genesis 1 than we realize.

Description : In this volume, Smith views the Fourth Gospel within several contexts in order to illuminate its specific purposes and achievements. A growing consensus of recent scholarship (including Martyn, Raymond E. Brown, Meeks) seeks the roots of this Gospel and its traditions in the conflict between Jesus' followers and opponents within Judaism. In their struggles, Jesus' followers are encouraged and strengthened by his continuing presence in the Spirit, which articulates his meaning for new situations. Although distinctive, Johannine Christianity does not develop in complete isolation from the broader Christian Gospels. Out of a fascinating, if complex, setting develops the strikingly unique statement of Christian faith, practice, and doctrine found in the Gospel of John. The purpose of this commentary is to enable the reader to comprehend that statement in historical perspective in order to appreciate its meaning and significance.
