Bible background commentary

IVP's Bible Background Commentary

Voted one of Christianity Today's 1995 Books of the Year! This revised edition of the standard reference work in its field has been expanded throughout to now provide even more up-to-date information by Craig Keener, one of the leading New Testament scholars on Jewish, Greek and Roman culture. To understand and apply the Bible well, you need two crucial sources of information. One is the Bible itself. The other is an understanding of the cultural background of the passage you're reading. Only with the background can you grasp the author's original concerns and purposes. This unique commentary provides, in verse-by-verse format, the crucial cultural background you need for responsible--and richer--Bible study. It includes a glossary of cultural terms and important historical figures, maps and charts, up-to-date bibliographies, and introductory essays about cultural background information for each book of the New Testament. Based on decades of in-depth study, this accessible and bestselling commentary is valuable for pastors in sermon preparation, for Sunday-school and other church teachers as they build lessons, for missionaries concerned not to import their own cultural biases into the Bible, for college and seminary students in classroom assignments, and for everyday Bible readers seeking to deepen and enhance their study of Scripture.

Epidemic

Epidemic - Examining the Infected Roots of Judaism and Christianity

This writing covers so many subjects, it was difficult to "place" it under just one category. Russ Houck covers changes to the Sabbath and the Feasts brought in under Constantine, the doctrine of the Trinity, Law Keeping, the Reformation, Messianic Judaism, and much more. Very informative!

Grafted In Israel Gentiles

Grafted in Israel, Gentiles and the mysteries of the Bible

The Apostle Paul compared Gentile Christians to olive branches cut from wild olive trees and grafted into the olive tree of Israel. He believed that the dividing wall separating Jew and Gentile had been removed, and to him this was the "mystery of the Gospel." From where does Paul derive his conclusions, and what does being "grafted in" mean? Grafted In is a book for Christians exploring their Hebrew Roots, for Gentiles in Messianic Judaism, and for Jewish believers seeking answers about Paul.

Charts of the New Testament - Chronological and Background

Students of the New Testament are confronted with a vast amount of information, both biblical and extrabiblical. Chronological and Background Charts of the New Testament helps the student organize and synthesize this material by providing a helpful visual overview of the data, chronology, historical background, and criticism of the New Testament. This format allows facts, relationships, parallels, and contrasts to be grasped quickly and easily. The 90 charts in this updated, expanded edition are divided into four broad categories: general material, backgrounds to the New Testament, the Gospels, and the apostolic age. They cover a wide range of topics, from basic matters such as a chronological list of the books of the New Testament to less familiar subjects such as “The Roman Military System,” “Rabbinic Writings,” and “The Five Gospels of the Jesus Seminar.” This volume is a useful tool for classroom use, for individual study, and as a handy reference.
