The Bible Knowledge Commentary Epistles and Prophecy

The Bible Knowledge Commentary Epistles and Prophecy

Teachings of God’s Grace, His Character, and Christ’s Coming Return Letters to the early church have inspired Christians for thousands of years. From the relationship between the New Covenant and the Old Covenant in Hebrews, to the practical wisdom of James, to the warnings of Jude, each of these epistles has much to tell us about following Christ today. This exposition looks at what these letters teach us about God’s character, His relationship with His people, and His call for our commitment. The authors also help us better understand the book of Revelation—one of the most misunderstood books of the Bible. Though Revelation is often daunting to laypeople and scholars alike, The Bible Knowledge Commentary gives life-changing insight into the interpretation, purpose, and application of this profound book. Together, the later epistles and the book of Revelation offer explanations of God’s ancient truths and hope for a world to come.

The Biblical Illustrator - Vol. 60 - Pastoral Commentary on 1 Peter

The Biblical Illustrator - Vol. 60 - Pastoral Commentary on 1 Peter

**This ebook version of The Biblical Illustrator - Pastoral Commentary on 1 Peter contains nearly 1200 pages of commentary! What if Charles Spurgeon helped you prepare next Sunday’s sermon? Or what if you could talk over your preaching with Joseph Parker, Richard Baxter, Henry Ward Beecher and H. P. Liddon. Do you think it would make a difference to get the input of some of the greatest preachers who ever lived? That’s precisely what Joseph Exell had in mind when he put together the massive series of volumes called The Biblical Illustrator. In what can only be called a Herculean feat, he spent years gathering preaching notes and sermon outlines from the very best preachers of his day (in the late 1800s and early 1900s), and he did it covering every book of the Bible. And it is amazingly comprehensive. Exell approached his task by taking every verse in the Bible and seeking to discover how it has been preached in the past. Though there is plenty of exegetical material here, this is not primarily a commentary. This series is for preachers, teachers, Bible students and anyone else looking for penetrating pastoral insights from some of the all-time greats of the faith.

The Holy Spirit -- In Biblical Teaching, Through the Centuries, and Today

The Holy Spirit -- In Biblical Teaching, Through the Centuries, and Today

The book is divided into three parts. Part One provides a thematic analysis and exegetical commentary on all the relevant biblical and cognate literature, including Josephus, Philo and the Mishnah. Part Two investigates the thinking of key Christian theologians on the Holy Spirit, from the Apostolic Fathers to eighteenth century authors such as John Wesley and Jonathan Edwards. Part Three examines more recent writings on the Spirit, from the nineteenth century onwards, including major systematic theologians such as Schleiermacher, Barth and Moltmann, as well as biblical scholars such as James D G Dunn, Gordon Fee and Gerd Theissen. Thiselton concludes the entire study by identifying seven fundamental themes, and calling for greater dialogue between mainstream scholarship and contemporary leaders of the Pentecostal and Renewal movements.

Who are the Elect in 1 Peter?

A Study in Biblical Exegesis and Its Application to the Anglican Church of Nigeria

Who are the Elect in 1 Peter?

The relationship between theology and praxis is an important subject that requires further attention from biblical scholars. As the need for social theology or praxis increases, so does the challenge for it to be informed by sound biblical exegesis. This book explores the interplay between theology and praxis using the Christian identity of the elect in 1 Peter as a paradigm. Who are the elect and what is the significance of the identity in 1 Peter? This study employs an exegetical hermeneutical approach to underline the ‘present’ ethical dimension of this identity with its implicit missionary purpose, not only within the first century but also in the twenty-first century as a necessary corollary of the identity. 1 Peter is applied to a twenty-first century context – the Nigerian Anglican Church – to underline the continuing relevance of Scripture and thereby propose ‘conscious’ interaction as a veritable and vital missiological strategy that facilitates ‘reactive’ evangelism with potentials for making theology an independent social variable. Although it makes direct reference to the Nigerian Church, the main argument of this book is applicable anywhere – to be God’s elect is to live no longer as before but in newness of life. This book not only underlines the importance of 1 Peter but also raises important challenges that no ‘living church’ can afford to ignore. It is suitable for use in biblical studies, NT interpretation and applied theology, and African Christian studies, especially on the transition from missions to churches in Nigeria.
