Description : This item is part of: Lenski New Testament: In Twenty Volumes. Pastors and students of the Bible who seek deep and detailed engagement with the text of the New Testament have long relied on R.C.H. Lenski's classic text now available again. Even though its historical-critical work has been surpassed, the strong narrative quality, accessibility, and "holy reverence for the Word of God" (Moody Monthly) of Lenski's work have allowed his commentary to continue as an excellent resource for serious study of the New Testament and sermon preparation.

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. . . .'""

Description : God added a story of a woman taken in adultery (John 7:53-8:12) into the Gospel according to St. John after it was first distributed; the content of this story and its late insertion signals that Jesus, as portrayed by John, did more than perform miracles and deliver discourses. "Ether 4:16 and Jesus Christ," an original Bible study, uncovers a simple, hidden message. "Ether 4:16" reveals that Jesus compared the woman's adultery to the story in the Old Testament of the Israelites' idolatry to a golden calf (Exod. 32:1-33:3). "Ether 4:16" shows that understanding St. John's Gospel comes after applying the key, linking verse John 1:17, "For the Law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ" (King James Version) all the way through the Gospel. The Gospel uses the principles in this verse to reexamine stories from the books of Moses. Does Jesus compare the adultery of the woman with the idolatry of the people of Moses? By writing the words on the ground with his finger, does Jesus recall the words written by the finger of God, the testimony—engraved on stone tables—that Moses threw down and broke in anger when he saw the calf and the dancing people? Might Jesus, in his command for the scribes and Pharisees to stone the woman, be alluding to Moses' command to the sons of Levi to slay their brothers, companions, and neighbours? Examination of the book reveals many connections—similar or contrasting—between St. John's Gospel and the books of Moses. In "Ether 4:16 and Jesus Christ," the author records a teaching story or command from Moses' ministry on the left side of the page, recounts the parallel story or discourse from Jesus' ministry on the right, and provides the linking verse at the top of the page. The verse Ether 4:16 refers to the Gospel according to St. John and the Revelation of St. John the Divine unfolded; exposes as spiritual adultery and acting without God's command, the books, sermons, Bible lessons, etc., that he has not caused to be written; shows that the Word of God is flawless, not requiring endless notes, cross references, and comments; reaffirms that the authority to teach the Gospel and the difference between good and evil belongs to the Teacher, the Spirit; and admonishes that those outside the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, having rejected Jehovah, understand neither the scriptures, nor the power of God. Indeed, the Living God has no need for men to explain the scriptures and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (The author has no affiliation with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; indeed, permission to reproduce the scripture Ether 4:16 was denied by the Intellectual Property Division of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.) St. John's Gospel is a keystone, but is it also an enigma, requiring extensive clarification? According to John 1:17, this Gospel is composed of parallel and contrasting elements, simply.

Description : The story of the creation of The Saint Johns Biblethe first commissioned, handwritten Bible in five hundred years and the first Bible of this magnitude written in English using a contemporary translationhas been told elsewhere. In Word and Image, Fr. Michael Patella focuses not on how it was made but on how, now that it is finished, it can be read, viewed, and interpreted. Patella considers the centuries-long tradition of illuminated Bibles and also the fascinating ways this Bible reflects third-millennium concerns. He seeks to rekindle interest in sacred art by allowing The Saint John's Bible to teach its readers and viewers how to work with text and image. As an accomplished Scripture scholar, a monk of the abbey that commissioned the Bible, and the chair of the Committee on Illumination and Text that provided the vision to the artists who created it, Patella may be the only one who could write this book with such insight, expertise, and love.

Description : This package includes the complete two-volume set of the Book of Revelation from the MacArthur New Testament Commentary series: Revelation 1-11 and Revelation 12-22. The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series continues to be one of today's top-selling commentary series. These commentaries from respected Bible scholar and preacher John MacArthur give a verse-by-verse analysis in context and provide points of application for passages, illuminating the biblical text in practical and relevant ways. Revelation 1:3 says, "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near." That blessing may be hard to receive with the Book's shrouded prophecy and eschatological mysteries confusing scholar and lay-reader alike. MacArthur pulls back the veil and reveals more of what God's Word has to say to us in Revelation, covering volatile topics as: The rapture, the millennial kingdom, and the Anti-Christ. These volumes will open your eyes to receive the blessing promised in Revelation's opening verses.

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 : Could the Revelation of St. John inspire us even today in our own spiritual quest? Yes, answers Dr. Korte, an author of several books and articles interpreting myths and the Bible, as she reads man’s spiritual transformation in St. John’s visions. Irma Korte questions the common view of Revelation as a prophesy of horrors and God’s revenge, and instead invites the reader into man’s inner world. Here, St. John contemplates in pictorial, mythical language the most essential problems in religion, such as the nature of man, reality, and evil. As the visions proceed, St. John himself experiences a profound inner change. He gives up alienating religious beliefs and moves toward ever deeper spirituality, culminating in the final illumination. Interpreting the visions much like myths are analyzed in Jungian thought, Dr. Korte compares the images in St. John’s visions to those from other religious texts, psychological and philosophical theories, mythology, and yoga literature, as well as from dreams and experiences of present-day men and women. The many quotations from the works of Occidental and Oriental mystics testify that they have used images similar to those of St. John in recounting their own experiences. These mystics include, among others, St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and Paramahansa Yogananda.

Description : A substantial introduction to the study of early Jewish and Christian mysticism, this volume examines major aspects of the mystical tradition within early Judaism and Christianity. This tradition was centered on the belief that a person directly, immediately, and before death can experience the divine, either as a rapture experience or one solicited by a particular praxis. The essays define and analyze the nature and practices of mysticism as it emerges within early Judaism and Christianity, recognizing this emergence within a variety of communal environments. Larger questions about the relationship between hermeneutics and experience, as well as the relationship between mysticism and apocalypticism are also discussed, and a substantial bibliography of the field is provided. The book is the result of ten years of work of the Early Jewish and Christian Mysticism unit of the Society of Biblical Literature. The contributors are Cameron C. Afzal, Daphna Arbel, Kelley Coblentz Bautch, Ra'anan S. Boustan, James R. Davila, April D. DeConick, Celia Deutsch, Rachel Elior, Frances Flannery-Dailey, Charles A. Gieschen, Rebecca Lesses, Andrea Lieber, Christopher R. A. Morray-Jones, Andrei A. Orlov, Christopher Rowland, Seth L. Sanders, Alan F. Segal, and Kevin Sullivan.

Description : John T. Spivey breaks Revelation free from the confusing futurist interpretations and shows that St. John wrote to the Early Church to build its faith during persecution by the Roman Empire. He further shows that St. John predicted the fall of the Roman Empire. Mr. Spivey calls on many ancient historians and Early Church fathers to present their testimonies to show that Revelation’s predictions are subject to analysis and proof. He shows that St. John described the desolation of Judea and the deliverance of the Christian community from the destruction of Jerusalem in the Roman-Jewish War of AD 66-70 as completed events to build confidence in what would happen in the time of Roman persecution. Mr. Spivey also explains the millennium and the end of time in fresh, new ways that are scientifically sound and that affirm the Bible at every point.

Description : Provides an enthusiastic Christian perspective on imagery of the Jewish Temple in the Book of Revelation and its significance to the apocalyptic teachings in the Book of Revelation. The author traces various Temple themes through the Old Testament, demonstrates how they were used in Revelation, and explores the concept of the Temple in a number of noncanonical Jewish writings, assessing the degree to which sources other than the Old Testament influenced the Apocalypse's Temple symbolism.
