2 Peter was widely circulated throughout the early church to warn people to watch out for the false teachers that were appearing in the church, Leading to immorality and the loss of its witness. Peter was very concerned that those who say that Christ will not return should not make the church feel that Christ has abandoned them. Jude theme is similar and also points the church towards the evidence of believers who heard Jesus 'to fight on for the faith which once and for all God has given to his people'.


Paul Gardner is also the author of Ephesians: Encouragement and Joy in Christ (9781845502645) and Revelation: Compassion and Protection of Christ (9781857923292) in the Focus on the Bible commentary series.

    Second Samuel includes some of the most well-known and theologically layered episodes in the Old Testament, such as the Lord's establishment of an eternal covenant with David, David's sin with Bathsheba, and the subsequent account of Absalom's rebellion. In this second part of an ambitious two-volume commentary on the books of Samuel, David Toshio Tsumura elucidates the rich text of 2 Samuel with special attention to literary and textual issues. Tsumura interprets the book in light of the meaning of the original composition, and he provides a fresh new translation based on careful analysis of the Hebrew text.

    The Book of2 Samuel, which tells the story of David, Israel's greatest king, declares A. A. Anderson, is a central book in Scripture. It has served as a direct source for or influence on the books of Kings and Chronicles, the Prophets, and the Psalms, as well as the New Testament, and references to David can even be found in Gen. 49:10 and Num. 24:17, as Anderson has documented.

    Although 2 Samuel begins with the death of his predecessor, Saul, and follows through to David's old age, the so-called Succession Narrative comprises most of the story in the book, telling how David built his kingdom and survived all threats to its continuity. It culminates in the final act of placing Solomon on the throne, which spills over into 1 Kings 1-2.

    Anderson considers the Succession Narrative to be an apology-an official interpretation of significant events, not a eulogy written to the greater glory of either David or Solomon. Rather, it was intended to show that David, in spite of a series of near disasters, was not under a curse; and it maintains that Solomon was the rightful heir to David's throne, even though popular expectations as well as Solomon's youth and parentage apparently led many contemporaries to question that judgment.

    The issue was not "Who of David's sons will be king?" the author points out, but more likely " Is there any of David's sons fit to sit on the throne of David?"

    The commentary offers a full general bibliography with additional specialized listings of up-to-date bibliographies at the beginning of each chapter and of each section of the Introduction. The Introduction discusses:

  • The literary history of2 Samuel
  • Samuel's relation to the books of Joshua, Judges, and Kings
  • The Succession Narrative
  • The text of2 Samuel and its research
  • The use of2 Samuel in the Scriptures.
  • The volume provides a fresh translation with detailed explanatory notes concerning original word choices. Carefully evaluating textual evidence from the Masoretic Text, the Septuagint, Qumran texts, the Targums, and Latin texts, Anderson holds that no one of these has a monopoly as "the best witness" to the original text. Each variation is thus evaluated for the contribution it can make.

    A thorough exegetical and homiletical analysis of each passage of Exodus

    The true fountainhead of Old Testament theology, Exodus illuminates the significance of the name Yahweh and introduces the title I AM. It tells of Israel's formative historical event, the exodus, as well as the making of the covenant at Sinai. It includes the first code of the Law in the Decalogue and Book of the Covenant. It details Israel's besetting sin in the idolatry of the golden calf episode, but it also describes Moses's intercession and the great revelation of God's mercy. In its display of the Tent of Meeting, it presents the theology of the priesthood, the sacrifices, and the central sanctuary. A Commentary on Exodus explores all of these events with a view toward their significance both for the meaning of the Old Testament and for the message of the Christian church. Exegetically deep enough to satisfy the scholar and logically organized to meet the needs of the pastor, Garrett's commentary promises to become standard reference material in Exodus studies.

    - Every verse is given a fresh translation with copious explanatory notes, and particular attention is given to the poetry of Exodus, which the author demonstrates to be more abundant than previously believed.

    - The commentary also helps to dispel much confusion about Exodus by introducing the reader to Egyptian history and by carefully analyzing questions about the date of the exodus and the location of Mount Sinai.

    As the subtitle indicates, Accept One Another is a practical and expository commentary on the New Testament Book of Romans. James E. Allman, a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary for more than 17 years, contends that this significant but challenging letter by the Apostle Paul can be summed up in this one phrase found in Romans 15:7... "accept one another." Through careful exposition of the full text of Paul's venerable epistle, Dr. Allman lays out Paul's intent and rational with clarity and skill. Step by step, the reader is led through the entire book in order to grasp the theological basis for this timeless yet simple message until it becomes clear... "Accepting one another means we recognize in each other the saving work of God. We learn to extend to one another the grace we have ourselves received from God." When placed in the first century context of the Roman church and the factions that existed there, we discover that this message, accept one another, continues to ring with a clarity and relevance that speaks to today's church with the same power it possessed then. When it comes to addressing the racial and cultural differences that divide us, today's church is often woefully behind even our own pagan culture. But unlike our culture, the church has the weight of Scripture sounding the challenge, as Jim explains... "Paul called Christians to learn God's grace that we may learn to extend grace to each other. Learning the lessons of the Book of Romans can and will impact the life of the Christian church today. It will revitalize its gospel witness and build a community where people actually live the gospel." It is a message that needs to be declared in the church today, and it needs to be declared with the full authority and power of God's Word. In this thoughtful exposition, Dr. Allman provides the biblical foundation for any serious student of the Scripture to join with Paul in sounding an unapologetic challenge. As the people of God, we are to... Accept One Another!
