Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary Series: Book of Revelation: Unlocking the Future

DESCRIPTION

WILL THE HUMAN RACE SURVIVE IN THE FUTURE?

EVERYONE IS CURIOUS ABOUT THE FUTURE. There is something in human nature that wants to know what is going to happen next. God speaks to the need in our lives by revealing the future before it happens. That process is called a prophecy of future events. This book is a study of the prophecies in the book of Revelation.

The book of Revelation is the grand and noble conclusion to the Bible. It captives our attention, stirs our imagination, and points us to our glorious future destiny. It shows the living relationship between the risen Christ and His Bride, the Church. It also records the final days of this world and reveals the glorious new world yet to come. The book of Revelation gives us hope for the future when God will make “all things new” (Rev.21:5.

Dr.Hindson simplifies the message of the Revelation so that you can easily understand it for yourself. He surveys the general content of this captivating book of prophecy with a view to keeping the big picture in mind, rather than getting lost in all the details. His approach is to keep the study focused on the key issues in each chapter.

The Book of Revelation has been called the epilogue of the unfolding drama of redemption. It’s God’s road map to help us understand  where human history is going. In the biblical record, human history begins in a garden and ends in the eternal city. It begins with tragedy and ends with triumph. It begins with man’s failure and ends with his exaltation. In between, there stands a cross! and on that cross, Jesus Christ changed the course of human history forever.

The message of the Bible represents the timeless truth of God. As each generation seeks to apply that truth to its specific context it becomes necessary for an up-to-date commentary to be created just for them. The editors and authors of the Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary” have endeavored to do just that. They represent conservative, evangelical, and dispensational scholarship at its best.

New International Commentary: The Book of Isaiah, Chapters 1–39

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Verse-by-verse commentary
  • In-depth discussion of textual and critical matters
  • Introductions to each book’s authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology
  • Detailed bibliography

DESCRIPTION

The first of John N. Oswalt’s two-part study of the book of Isaiah for the NICOT series, this commentary on chapters 1–39 combines theological acumen, literary sensitivity, philological expertise, and historical knowledge to present a faithful and accurate reading of one of the Old Testament’s most important books.

In the introduction to this work, Oswalt considers Isaiah’s background, unity of composition, date and authorship, canonicity, Hebrew text, theology, and problems of interpretation, and he offers a select bibliography for further research. Oswalt also provides substantial discussions of several issues crucial to the book of Isaiah. He notes, for example, that scholars often divide Isaiah into three divisions, with chapters 1–39 addressing Isaiah’s contemporaries in the eighth century b.c., chapters 40–55 presupposing the exile of the sixth century, and chapters 56–66 presupposing the eventual return from exile. While taking this scholarship into account Oswalt defends the unity of the prophetic book and argues convincingly that the whole book can be attributed to the Isaiah of the eighth century.

The commentary proper, based on Oswalt’s own translation of the Hebrew text, provides pastors, scholars, and students with a lucid interpretation of the book of Isaiah in its ancient context as well as an exposition of its message for today.

Exploring the Bible: Job

Description

Author Peter Williams accepts that Job was a historical figure who faced up to real problems about his own suffering, about God’s Justice and Government, and about the malignancy of evil in the world. Job is probably one of the world’s oldest books and certainly not the easiest to understand, but it conveys some very powerful lessons for today. The author believes that we would greatly benefit by learning from this great man something of the meaning of victory over personal affliction, and the triumph of true faith in Almighty God.

Revised Chinese Union Version 和合本修訂版 和合本修订版, Simplified Chinese 简体版 (RCUVs)

修訂緣由
「聖經都是上帝所默示的,於教訓、督責、使人歸正、教導人學義都是有益的,叫屬上帝的人得以完全,預備行各樣的善事。」
提摩太後書3:16-17

為了讓華人也有一本他們能讀得明白的中文聖經,在一百多年前,多位西教士離鄉別井,遠赴重洋,來到中國,克服語言的限制、文化的差異,把聖經翻譯成中文。「和合本」聖經終於在一九一九年面世,讓中國億萬同胞認識真道,靈命得以建立。

廣泛諮詢
「和合本」聖經自面世以來,一直是廣為普世華人教會使用的「標準譯本」,輔助華人教會在這八十多年的歲月中成長。隨着時代的轉變,中文出現很大的變化,一些在當代十分順暢的字詞和語句,今天已鮮為人知,有些詞語的含義也改變了。因此,為了讓這一代華人更清楚、更容易地明白上帝的話語,聯合聖經公會於一九八三年先後在香港及新加坡等地,舉行有關修訂「和合本」的研討會,教會領袖普遍認同有需要對「和合本」作出修訂,於是我們組織一隊聖經學者、翻譯顧問及編輯人員,開始從事修訂的工作。

經過多年努力,我們於二零零零年完成了新約初稿,並出版了《四福音書》和《羅馬書》試用本。同年九月,聯合聖經公會再次在香港召開會議,議決由香港聖經公會全權統籌初稿試用後的修訂工作,並從中國、馬來西亞、新加坡、香港等地邀請多位聖經學者、翻譯顧問和編輯人員,參與「和合本」最後的修訂及審閱工作。中國基督教兩會不但在一九九零年派同工參與此項聖工,並於二零零三年正式來函表達支持,務求「和合本」修訂版出版後,能為普世華人教會所樂用。

為了使修訂工作精益求精,我們於二零零一年九月在香港,以及二零零二年一月在新加坡和馬來西亞舉行「和合本」修訂版顧問座談會。我們更於二零零四年十二月,特別為「和合本」最後的修訂事工舉行了一次大型的交流會,應邀赴會的海內外百多位華人學者及教牧同道均表達「和合本」修訂版應盡量採用各地華人都能明白的文句與詞彙。這是一個很寶貴的共識,亦符合我們修訂的原則。

嚴謹修訂
在長達二十多年的修訂過程中,同工們祈求聖靈的帶領,並帶着戰戰兢兢的心,對每一個句子、詞彙、字眼,都嚴謹地對照原文,也參考各種譯本,仔細推敲,反復琢磨,力求完善。

我們所依據的新約原文聖經是聯合聖經公會於一九九三年出版的希臘文聖經(第四版),其中匯集了聖經及考古學學者們許多年來對聖經抄本的考證、校勘等方面的研究成果,是目前全球最為可信的文本。此外,我們在修訂的過程中,也參閱了近幾十年來各國聖經學者的學術文獻,使我們對原文聖經的理解更加準確。

除了忠於原文外,我們還考慮到文字的曉暢,對較古僻、容易產生歧義和不符合今天人們表達習慣的字、詞、句都作出適當的修改;同時,我們也力求保持「和合本」原來的風格,只在有需要修改時才作出修改。

感謝主的保守
在上帝的帶領下,經過多年的耕耘,《和合本修訂版》經已面世。深盼各位兄姊不吝指正,讓這修訂版更趨盡善盡美。在此,我們除了感謝眾多主內同工和顧問們歷年來的委身與辛勞,以及各位弟兄姊妹的代禱和支持外,更要感謝那位一直引導我們的上帝,惟有靠賴他的恩典,才能完成這項他所託付我們的工作。

最後,我們謹以摯誠獻上這本聖經,求上帝使用,叫更多的人認識他,歸向他,並且「得以完全,預備行各樣的善事」。

願一切榮耀歸於上帝和他的愛子耶穌基督!

New International Commentary: The Book of Isaiah (2 vols.)

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Verse-by-verse commentary
  • In-depth discussion of textual and critical matters
  • Introductions to each book’s authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology
  • Detailed bibliography

DESCRIPTION

This collection includes the two volumes of John N. Oswalt’s study of Isaiah from The New International Commentary on the Old Testament

Volume 1

The first of John N. Oswalt’s two-part study of the book of Isaiah for the NICOT series, this commentary on chapters 1–39 combines theological acumen, literary sensitivity, philological expertise, and historical knowledge to present a faithful and accurate reading of one of the Old Testament’s most important books.

In the introduction to this work, Oswalt considers Isaiah’s background, unity of composition, date and authorship, canonicity, Hebrew text, theology, and problems of interpretation, and he offers a select bibliography for further research. Oswalt also provides substantial discussions of several issues crucial to the book of Isaiah. He notes, for example, that scholars often divide Isaiah into three divisions, with chapters 1–39 addressing Isaiah’s contemporaries in the eighth century b.c., chapters 40–55 presupposing the exile of the sixth century, and chapters 56–66 presupposing the eventual return from exile. While taking this scholarship into account Oswalt defends the unity of the prophetic book and argues convincingly that the whole book can be attributed to the Isaiah of the eighth century.

The commentary proper, based on Oswalt’s own translation of the Hebrew text, provides pastors, scholars, and students with a lucid interpretation of the book of Isaiah in its ancient context as well as an exposition of its message for today.

Volume 2

The second of John N. Oswalt’s two-part study of the book of Isaiah for the NICOT series, this commentary provides exegetical and theological exposition on the latter twenty-seven chapters of Isaiah for scholars, pastors, and students who seek to know the perennial meaning of the text in contemporary terms.

Though Oswalt’s main introduction to Isaiah is found in his commentary on chapters 1–39, this second volume opens with an important discussion of scholarly debate over the unity/diversity of Isaiah. In this work Oswalt makes stronger his case for reading the entire book of Isaiah as written by a single author—a position not common in other recent commentaries. Oswalt’s work stands alone, then, as an attempt to take seriously Israel’s historical situation at the time chapters 40–66 were composed while also seeking to understand how these chapters function as a part of Isaiah’s total vision written in the late 700s or early 600s b.c.

Assuming the single authorship of Isaiah, the verse-by-verse commentary aims to interpret chapters 40–66 in light of the book as a whole. While not neglecting issues of historical criticism or form criticism, the commentary focuses mainly on the theological meaning of the text as indicated especially by the literary structure. Building on his earlier argument that the central theme of Isaiah is servanthood, Oswalt keeps readers focused on the character of Israel’s sovereign Redeemer God, on the blind servant Israel, and on the ultimate work of the Suffering Servant in whom the world can find its Savior.

Pocket Dictionary of Apologetics & Philosophy of Religion

Bible Dictionary of Ancient Greek (BDAG) A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament

12.5% off Lowest price possible is $175. (Publisher requirement)

Now includes Strong’s numbers in topic tree! It will now work with your Strong’s number resources NASB, NET2, etc.

Described as an “invaluable reference work” (Classical Philology) and “a tool indispensable for the study of early Christian literature” (Religious Studies Review) in its previous edition, this new updated edition takes Walter Bauer’s Wörterbuch zu den Schriften des Neuen Testaments even further.  This work includes Greek definitions for works of all periods of Greek, and has more than 25,000 additional references to classical, intertestamental, Early Christian, and modern literature.

In this edition, Frederick W. Danker’s broad knowledge of Greco-Roman literature, as well as papyri and epigraphs, provides a more panoramic view of the world of Jesus and the New Testament. Danker has also introduced a more consistent mode of reference citation, and has provided a composite list of abbreviations to facilitate easy access to this wealth of information.

Perhaps the single most important lexical innovation of Danker’s edition is its inclusion of extended definitions for Greek terms. For instance, a key meaning of “episkopos” was defined in the second American edition as overseer; Danker defines it as “one who has the responsibility of safeguarding or seeing to it that something is done in the correct way, guardian.” Such extended definitions give a fuller sense of the word in question, which will help avoid both anachronisms and confusion among users of the lexicon who may not be native speakers of English.

Danker’s edition of Bauer’s Wörterbuch is an indispensable tool for New Testament exegete.
