1 Kings12-22 Concordia Commentary

The book of Kings is a history, written in a selective manner, for the sake of theology. Primarily covering more than 380 years of the history of Israel and its monarchy, from the last part of David's rule to the end of the kingship in Judah, the book of Kings also emphasizes prophets.

Despite this concentration, the main subject of this body of literature is still God. This history presents God - the holy, righteous, just, merciful, compassionate, gracious omnipotent, and omniscient Deity - in relationship with Israel.

Keeping in the Biblically faithful, Gospel-centered tradition of the acclaimed Concordia Commentary series, this newest addition to the series displays God as the Ruler of the nations, the God of chastisement and punishment, but also the God of deliverance and salvation.

Abingdon Old Testament Commentaries: Ezekiel
$41.99
The Abingdon Old Testament Commentaries provide compact, critical commentaries on the books of the Old Testament for the use of theological students and pastors. The commentaries are also useful for upper-level college or university students and for those responsible for teaching in congregational settings. In addition to providing basic information and insights into the Old Testament writings, these commentaries exemplify the tasks and procedures of careful interpretation, to assist students of the Old Testament in coming to an informed and critical engagement with the biblical texts themselves. From the book, "The effects of the Judean refugees' trauma would be far reaching. Certainly an individual named Ezekiel might have experienced persistent reactions to trauma for the length of time covered by the book. Moreover, the experience and effects of exile were not limited to Ezekiel, nor even to his generation. The book's existence attests that others in the exilic community, and beyond, found their experiences reflected in its words."

Book of Jeremiah
$50.00

The Old Testament prophets played a crucial role in the history of Israel. Although there were many prophets who brought the message of God to his people, we have records

of only a few. Of these, our knowledge of Jeremiah is probably the most complete. In this commentary for scholars and pastors, originally part of the New International Commentary on the Old Testament, J. A. Thompson examines the book of Jeremiah with its message urging the people of Israel to be true to their covenant Lord and to live in conformity with his covenant requirements.

Thompson begins his study by looking at the role of the prophets in Israel and at Jeremiah's place among them. He then discusses the historical setting of Jeremiah's message. From this background, Thompson moves to an examination of the book of Jeremiah itself, focusing on its structure and composition before considering some important issues for exegesis--the date of Jeremiah's call, the significance of the symbolic actions he performed, and the relationship between Jeremiah and Hosea. In the last part of his extensive introduction, Thompson examines the text and poetic forms of Jeremiah.

Colossians - Concordia Commentary
$64.99
Explore a theological exposition of sacred Scripture. The Concordia Commentary series enables pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight and clarity. Interpreting the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments through the person and work of Jesus Christ, each commentary affirms the inspiration and authority of Scripture, offering a literal translation, textual notes, and theological exposition. Two new commentaries are available. The letter to the Colossians is rich in Christology, to which all the articles of faith are intimately connected. One might even argue that Colossians possesses the most profound Christology in all the New Testament. A true, biblical Christology, centered in the cross and the empty tomb, gives life and meaning to all theology. Colossians has much to say about the doctrine of creation. Moreover, the letter relates its teaching on creation directly to its Christology. In this way Colossians unites the presupposition of all theology (creation) with the heart and center of all theology (Christology). Colossians is also strongly eschatological. The eschatology of the letter extends beyond those verses which speak of the life to come, for its message is given with an eye on eternity. The true doctrine of Christ, who is the exalted Lord over the entire creation, refutes the false Christologies that were circulating in Colossae, variations of which continue to compete against the true Gospel in the world today.

Commentary on the Psalms: 3 Volume Set
$159.99
All three volumes of A Commentary on the Psalms are now available as a set!

For thousands of years, the Book of Psalms has been one of God's people's richest resources for expression of worship and development of the spiritual life. At the same time it is one of the more complex and challenging sections of the Bible for expositors. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find this commentary invaluable for developing their understanding of the Psalms and for improving their ability to expound it with precision and depth.

For each psalm, Dr. Allen Ross guides the reader through a detailed exegetical outline, proposes a homiletical outline, and offers a summary expository idea of the message of the whole psalm.

The commentary includes discussion throughout of three primary challenges to understanding the Psalms:

Textual issues: Every major textual difficulty is addressed in order to help the expositor understand the interpretive issues and make decisions when there are multiple available readings.

Poetic language: The Psalms are full of poetic imagery, devices and structures. Ross discusses this "language" of Hebrew poetry in its context with each psalm, specifying the precise devices being used and how they work in the psalm.

Grammar and syntax: The Psalms' Hebrew poses a challenge to many expositors, whether they are familiar with Hebrew or not. This commentary illuminates Hebrew constructions word meanings in a way that is helpful both to readers who are comfortable with Hebrew and those who are not.

Ephesians is a veritable compendium of St. Pauls theology, and a candidate for his most influential epistle.

We today, no less than the Ephesians recently converted from their pagan lifestyle, need to appropriate these teachings because of spiritual peril of the environment in which we live. Dr. Wingers commentary unfolds the mysteries of the Gospel by his meticulous analysis of the Greek text and his reverent exposition of the epistles proclamation of Christ and his gifts for the sake of his church.

Ezekiel: An Introduction and Commentary
$25.00

"For most Bible readers Ezekiel is almost a closed book," writes John Taylor. "Their knowledge of him extends little further than his mysterious vision of God's chariot-throne, with its wheels within wheels, and the vision of the valley of the dry bones." "Otherwise his book is as forbidding in its size as the prophet himself is in the complexity of his make-up," Taylor goes on. "In its structure, however, if not in its thought and language, the book of Ezekiel has a basic simplicity, and its orderly framework makes it easy to analyze." Taylor, in the introduction to this analysis of Ezekiel, sketches a portrait of the prophet and his times, carefully placing the book and its prophecies within their historical settings. He also provides an overview of the books themes and a clear outline of its contents. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Ezra and Nehemiah - Concordia Commentary
$64.99
About This Volume:
God raised up extraordinary individuals of faith to rebuild the Jerusalem temple and prepare for the coming of the Messiah. These books offer hope and comfort by showing us what God accomplishes through his people's faithful labors and, more importantly, in Jesus Christ, who fully accomplished our salvation through his perfect life, atoning death, and glorious resurrection. God continues to show his gracious mercy in Christ to his people despite their faults and failures, their self-centeredness and fickle love for righteousness. These themes give the books of Ezra and Nehemiah their power and their reason for being part of God's sacred Scriptures.

About the Series:
The Concordia Commentary Series: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the biblical text.

This landmark work will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments, interpreting Scripture as a harmonious unity centered in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Every passage bears witness to the Good News that God has reconciled the world to Himself through our Lord's life, death, and resurrection.
The commentary fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture as it emphasizes ''that which promotes Christ'' in each pericope.
Authors are sensitive to the rich treasury of language, imagery, and themes found throughout Scripture, including such dialectics as Law and Gospel, sin and grace, death and new life, folly and wisdom, demon possession and the arrival of the kingdom of God in Christ. Careful attention is given to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek. Further light is shed on the text from archaeology, history, and extra-biblical literature. Finally, Scripture's message is applied to the ongoing life of the church in terms of ministry, worship, proclamation of the Word, Baptism, the Lord's Supper, confession of the faith--all in joyful anticipation of the life of the world to come.

Galatians Concordia Commentary
$64.99
Paul's fiercely passionate letter to the Galatians offers a rare glimpse into the early history of the emerging Christ-believing movement. Paul is seething with righteous indignation over the events at Galatia even as he conveys his hope that the Galatians might be coaxed back to the true Gospel. The young faith was grappling with issues that would prove to be a watershed. Do gentile Christians need to adopt Moses Law and be circumcised as Jews in order to worship the God of the Jewish Savior? Or does Baptism incorporate every manner of personwithout distinctioninto Christ? Does faith alone suffice for salvation? Across the divide of two thousand years of time and cultural space, the letter to the Galatians is an authoritative witness to the catholic Gospel of salvation by grace alone, for all people alike.

Isaiah 40-66 - Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture
$50.00

No book of the Old Testament is more frequently quoted in the New than Isaiah, and no portion of Isaiah is more frequently quoted in the New than the typologically fertile soil of Isaiah 40-66. Still, as interpreted by the fathers, Isaiah presents a message that is far more soteriological than christological, leading readers to a deeper understanding of God's judgment and salvation. Isaiah 40-66 provides us with the closest thing the Old Testament has to offer regarding a systematic theology.

The excerpts included in this Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture volume offer us a rich array of differing styles, principles, and theological emphases, from Theodoret of Cyr to Eusebius and Procopius, to Cyril of Alexandria, Jerome and Augustine. Readers will be enriched by the wide-ranging selections, some of which are translated here into English for the first time.
