Fire has burned the stones and they are now just piles of rubbish. It is I John who am the hearer and the seer of these things. Letters and Homilies for Hellenized Christians, vol. 2: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary on 1-2 Peter. Some of the poor people even had to sell their property. Paul sees this title as so intrinsic in the identity of Jesus, that he regularly uses the title alone as a proper name, referring to Jesus.^ [8] ^ The title holds different meanings to ‘Christ’, as shown by the number of times that Jesus is referred to as ‘the Lord Jesus Christ’. ^ [9] ^ The frequent uses of the phrase ‘our Lord’ shows that ‘Lord’ is, at the very least, a description of Jesus’ authority and dominion.^ [10] ^ The use of ‘our’ shows his exclusive authority over the Church – ‘Christ is our Lord, not Caesar or sin or any other power’.

If the mark is connected with this, it means that those who worship the beast accept his authority. (iv) All coinage had the head and inscription of the emperor stamped upon it, to show that it was his property. It is a sailors� feast, so only men are present. But there have been some standout volumes here, and it seems many of the newer ones, esp. in the OT, are rather good. In fact, the historic chapters in the latter part of the gospel, which represent Jesus with all the pathos of human suffering, differ altogether in character from those, in the earlier part, that represent the superhuman Jesus.

Desiring God – One of the more important posts I’ve seen in a long time. Very dramatic, but in conflict with his own account (Gal. i. 15 et seq.; I Cor. ix. 1, xv. 8), is the story of the conversion of Paul, which follows (ix. 1-30; comp. xxii. 6 et seq., 26). The so called �five-fold� ministries of Ephesians 4:11 were given to the church upon Christ�s ascension (Ephesians 4:8-10). There were the two Kimchis, especially David (died 1235) of Narbonne, who was a celebrated grammarian, lexicographer, and commentator inclined to the literal sense.

This page is designed to help make New Testament commentaries, dictionaries and related resources available to those without easy access to a theological library. Wirthlin helps us see a modern application of the experience the early disciples had in leaving their nets and following the Savior: “They were fishermen before they heard the call. How does a man avail himself of the sacrifice of Christ? So he was able to explain all the details to the king.

His service rendered, the wonder-worker �gave him to his mother� (1 Kings 17:24; Luke 7:15b, verbatim identical). Carson makes clear the flow of the text, focusing on the movement of thought rather than on word studies. Maxwell (1926–2004) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles similarly taught about the essential role of confession in repentance: “True repentance also includes confession: ‘Now therefore make confession unto the Lord God of your fathers.’ ( Ezra 10:11 .) One with a broken heart will not hold back.

Towner in the New International Commentary on the New Testament series (Eerdmans, 2006, 886 pp.). But before we look at individual commentaries, I want to recommend a number of more general works on Revelation that are very helpful and worthy of your time. Thus he is the counsel for the prosecution against Job, cynically suggesting that Job serves God for what he can get out of it and that, if he is involved in disaster, his loyalty will soon cease (Jb.1:11-12), and he is given permission by God to use every weapon short of death to test Job (Jb.2:1-6).

The significant thing about this great word is that it occurs ten times in the New Testament. Every preacher/teacher in the Wesleyan tradition should read Wesley's Notes before going to the pulpit. According to Brodie (pp. 174-184), Luke has created his rather cumbersome story of the sinful woman from a pair of Elisha�s miracles, the never-failing cruse of oil (2 Kings 4:1-7) and the raising of the Shunammite�s son (2 Kings 4:8-37).

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). He writes that the aorist is "the standard verbal aspect employed for naming or labeling an act or event. Hanan was the son of Zaccur and was the grandson of Mattaniah. That was the reason I purchased this in the first place and it has lived up to those expectations. In the end, this story is reminiscent of Jesus’ teaching in Luke 6:27: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.”

Just like Luke 3, the author moves seamlessly from Genesis 1–11 to the rest of the Bible, without the slightest hint, ‘now we are moving from allegory or myth to history.’ The rest that the persevering believer enters into is compared to God’s rest on Day 7 as well as the rest that was promised to the Hebrews coming out of Egypt. His voice was as the roar of a lion which is often used as a simile of the voice of God, "the Lord roars from Zion and utters his voice from Jerusalem" (Jl.3:16; Hos.11:10; Am.3:8).

God would not let their enemies stop the work. He ordered the guards in Jerusalem to shut the gates of the city during the 7th day. In the meantime, you should definitely read his Before Jerusalem Fell: Dating the Book of Revelation (American Vision, 1998 [revised edition], 409 pp.), and The Beast of Revelation (Institute for Christian Economics, 1989, 209 pp.). This is really a quotation of Ps.2:2, and is another way of saying that the Messianic reign has begun.
