Isaiah 56-66 - Concordia Commentary
$64.99
Dr. Lessing shows that Isaiah 5666 is the culmination of the prophets message condemning humanitys sin and promising the Suffering Servant, who atones for that sin, rises in majesty, and prepares an eternal city for all the redeemed. Among its well-known oracles are arise, shine, because your light is coming (60:1); the Spirit of the Lord Yahweh is upon me (61:1); and behold, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth (65:17). These chapters answer the questions Do people enjoy Yahwehs grace by birthright or by faith? Who is the true Israel? And what will happen to the Suffering Servants offspring, the church? Gods restoration of Zions glory is our future!

James - Concordia Commentary
$64.99
"This commentary on the epistle of James provides an original translation, meticulous grammatical analysis of the Greek text, and theological exposition addressing perpetual issues in the life of the church and highlighting the enduring relevance of this epistle for Christians amid trials. The author presents careful research into the historical context, purpose, structure, and message of James, which has often been misunderstood, notably in the Lutheran tradition. Dr. Giese offers a positive, corrective interpretation. The overarching theme of James is "the gifts of the giving God and their use." James 1:16-18 stands as the theological center of the book: the eschatological gift of rebirth in Jesus Christ, to be firstfruits of the new creation, establishes the right use of all other divine gifts"--

Jonah - Concordia Commentary
$64.99
The Concordia Commentary series enables pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight and clarity. This newest commentary interprets the narrative of Jonah as true history that presents the God of Israel as gracious toward all who repent and believe in Him. Keeping its focus upon the one greater than Jonah, our Savior, Jesus, it discusses missions, Baptism, and prayer. The introduction discusses the book's historical setting, genre, and themes. The author provides a literal, original translation. Textual notes explain the grammatical features of the Hebrew, revealing the literary artistry of Jonah's author. This theological commentary clearly expounds the book's message in harmony with the rest of the Scriptures. Ironically, Jonah the Israelite begrudges God's abundant grace, while Gentiles are converted to saving faith through the power of the preached Word. Excursuses cover evangelism in the Old Testament, the Sign of Jonah in the Gospels, death and resurrection motifs from Jonah 2 in Christian Baptism, and God changing His verdict from judgment to salvation. The commentary's focus is on the one greater than Jonah: Jesus Christ, the Savior of all peoples.

Leviticus - Concordia Commentary
$64.99
The Concordia Commentary series enables pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight and clarity. God speaks in Leviticus to give Israel His instructions for the divine service. His prescriptions for the many kinds of sacrifices are attended by His promises for the forgiveness of sins and life with Him. Purity and holiness come to God's people through His indwelling presence among them. This commentary has several unique features. It explores how each chapter of Leviticus finds its fulfillment in Jesus Christ--His earthly life, atoning death, resurrection, and ongoing ministry in the heavenly sanctuary now on behalf of His people on Earth. Using the method of ritual analysis, it examines the agents, enactment, and theological purpose of each of the instructions given in the divine speeches in Leviticus. The commentary on each pericope closes with a section on that specific text's "Fulfillment in Christ." A hymn quotation then sums up the theology of that pericope as it applies to the Christian faith and worship life of the church.

Luke - Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture
$75.00

For the church fathers the Gospels did not serve as resources for individual analysis and academic study. They were read and heard and interpreted within the worshiping community. They served as sources for pastoral counsel and admonition for those who were committed to the Way. Although Matthew and John were generally the preferred Gospels, Luke, because of his particular interests and unique contributions, took pride of place during the Christmas season as well as during Easter and other major feasts.

During the early patristic period, the tradition of continuous reading (lectio continua) through the Gospels developed, such that over a course of time a complete Gospel was read in sections, and sermons were preached on the readings either at weekly or midweek worship and Communion liturgies or during morning and evening prayer services. Among such sermons that have survived, this commentary includes selections from Origen and Cyril of Alexandria.

Aside from sermons, we find that the fathers addressed exegetical issues in theological treatises, pastoral letters and catechetical lectures. Among these, as in other ACCS volumes, readers will find materials ranging from East to West and from the first to the eighth centuries. Among well-known fathers cited are Ambrose, Athanasius, Augustine, the Cappadocians, John Chrysostom, John of Damascus and Bede the Venerable. Among lesser-known fathers are John Cassian, Philoxenus of Mabbug and Theophylact.

This volume, edited by Arthur A. Just, opens up a treasure house of ancient wisdom that allows these faithful witnesses, some appearing here in English translation for the first time, to speak with eloquence and intellectual acumen to the church today.

He is not one source of divine love among many; he is the fount, and all other sources portrayed in Scripture ultimately well up from Him.
