Romans reveals that the "righteousness of God" is ours in the Gospel of Jesus Christ through faith alone, not from works. This second Concordia Commentary volume on Paul's most famous letter covers the salvation of all who truly are "Israel" (Romans 9-11); offering ourselves as living sacrifices (Romans 12-13); the "weak" and the "strong" in the body of Christ (Romans 14-15); and the enduring message of Paul's final benediction for the Church (Romans 16). In this volume, you'll find the completion of the first genuinely Lutheran commentary published on Romans in our generation.

The Concordia Commentary series enables pastors, professors, and teachers to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the biblical text. The series covers all of the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments.

In Ruth - Concordia Commentary, author Dr. John R. Wilch focuses on the themes of God's covenant; God's covenant; God's loyalty, reflected in the lives of his faithful people; the theology of missions and evangelism; Boaz as a redeemer, prefiguring Jesus Christ; and the promise of eternal life. The commentary's Christocentric hermeneutic elucidates the rich Gospel message of Ruth and its relevance for the church today.

Song of Songs - Concordia Commentary

Song of Songs - 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. This commentary interprets the Song with reference to the holy estate of human marriage and also the great mystery of Christ's union with His betrothed bride, the church. Solomon's most beautiful poem contains a profound message of divine love, eschatological yearning, consummation, and eternal delights, with rich applications for the life of the church and all Christians. A distinctive feature of this commentary is the insistence that the divine love celebrated in the Song has its source in the incarnation, unblemished life, vicarious suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. 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.

Twelve Prophets - Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture

Twelve Prophets - Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture
$60.00

And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, [the risen Jesus] interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself (Lk 24:27). The church fathers mined the Old Testament throughout for prophetic utterances regarding the Messiah, but few books yielded as much messianic ore as the Twelve Prophets, sometimes known as the Minor Prophets because of the relative brevity of their writings. Encouraged by the example of the New Testament writers, the church fathers found numerous parallels between the Gospels and the prophetic books. Among the events foretold, they found not only the flight into Egypt after the nativity, the passion, and resurrection of Christ, and the outpouring of the Spirit at Pentecost, but also Judas's act of betrayal, the earthquake at Jesus' death and the rending of the temple veil. Detail upon detail brimmed with significance for Christian doctrine, including baptism and the Eucharist as well as the relation between the covenants. In this rich and vital resource you will find excerpts, some translated here into English for the first time, from more than thirty church fathers, ranging in time from Clement of Rome, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus (late first and early second centuries) to Gregory the Great, Braulio of Saragossa, and Bede the Venerable (late sixth to early eighth centuries). Geographically the sources range from the great Cappadocians--Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa--John Chrysostom, Ephrem the Syrian, and Hippolytus in the East, to Ambrose, Augustine, Cyprian, and Tertullian in the West, and Origen, Cyril, and Pachomius in Egypt. This Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture volume is a treasure trove out of which Christians may bring riches both old and new in their understanding of these ancient texts.
