This leads to concepts of progressiveness and unreserved participation with good conscience in political or scientific action. But it is only gross, highly visible, undeniable violence that evokes this scandalized reaction. They deny the existence of masked, secret, covert violence—insofar as this can be concealed Ellul believed that social justice and true freedom were incompatible. He rejected any attempt to reconcile them. He believed that a Christian could choose to join a movement for justice, but in doing so, must admit that this fight for justice is necessarily, and at the same time, a fight against all forms of freedom.
Ellul believed that when a Christian decides to act it must be in a way that is specifically Christian. Rather, they must bring to social movements what they alone can provide. Only so can they signalize the kingdom. So far as they act like the others—even to forward social justice, equality, etc.
In fact the political and revolutionary attitude proper to the Christian is radically different than the attitude of others; it is specifically Christian or else it is nothing. In Violence Ellul states his belief that only God is able to establish justice and God alone who will institute the kingdom at the end of time. He acknowledges that some have used this as an excuse to do nothing, but also points out how some death-of-God advocates use this to claim that "we ourselves must undertake to establish social justice".
Ellul says that many European Christians rushed into socialist circles and with this began to accept the movement's tactics of violence, propaganda, etc. Ellul states in The Subversion of Christianity that "to proclaim the class conflict and the 'classical' revolutionary struggle is to stop at the same point as those who defend their goods and organizations. This may be useful socially but it is not at all Christian in spite of the disconcerting efforts of theologies of revolution. Revelation demands this renunciation-the renunciation of illusions, of historic hopes, of references to our own abilities or numbers or sense of justice.
We are to tell people and thus to increase their awareness the offense of the ruling classes is that of trying to blind and deaden the awareness of those whom they dominate. Renounce everything in order to be everything. Trust in no human means, for God will provide we cannot say where, when, or how. Have confidence in his Word and not in a rational program. Enter on a way on which you will gradually find answers but with no guaranteed substance. All this is difficult, much more so than recruiting guerillas, instigating terrorism, or stirring up the masses. And this is why the gospel is so intolerable, intolerable to myself as I speak, as I say all this to myself and others, intolerable for readers, who can only shrug their shoulders.
Ellul discusses these topics in detail in his landmark work, Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes. He viewed the power of the media as another example of technology exerting control over human destiny. Also within Propaganda Ellul claims that "it is a fact that excessive data do not enlighten the reader or the listener; they drown him. He cannot remember them all, or coordinate them, or understand them; if he does not want to risk losing his mind, he will merely draw a general picture from them. And the more facts supplied, the more simplistic the image".
They cannot even form a choice or a judgment in other areas or on other subjects. Thus the mechanisms of modern information induce a sort of hypnosis in the individual, who cannot get out of the field that has been laid out for him by the information". And because rational propaganda thus creates an irrational situation, it remains, above all, propaganda—that is, an inner control over the individual by a social force, which means that it deprives him of himself". Ellul agreed with Jules Monnerot who stated that "All individual passion leads to the suppression of all critical judgment with regard to the object of that passion".
In response to an invitation from Protestant associations, Ellul visited Germany twice and On the second visit he attended a Nazi meeting out of curiosity which influenced his later work on propaganda and its ability to unify a group. As a dialectical contrast to "La Technique," for instance, Ellul writes Sans feu ni lieu published in , although written much earlier. In explaining the significance of freedom and the purpose for resisting the enslavement of humans via acculturation or sociological bondage , Ellul rejects the notion that this is due to some supposed supreme importance linked to humanity.

He states that modern enslavement expresses how authority, signification, and value are attached to humanity and the beliefs and institutions it creates. This leads to an exaltation of the nation or state, money, technology, art, morality, the party, etc. The work of humanity is glorified and worshiped, while simultaneously enslaving humankind.

Calvin preached and wrote prolifically on the Bible. His commentaries display a rare combination of exegetical insight, pastoral concern, and theological depth which have inspired generations of Christians. Calvin wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, and is best known for his commentaries on the Pauline epistles, his harmony of the Gospels, and his 5-volume work on the Psalms—all included in this massive collection.
For every chapter of the Bible, the commentary contains a section on preaching themes, which are organized topically, conceptually, and chronologically. Significant theological themes are also outlined for each section of the Bible, and homiletic notes are provided. The authors have also solicited and summarized commentary from a wide range of contributors to Biblical, historical, and theological scholarship, drawing from the collective wisdom of those who understand that good preaching has its origin in Biblical study.
This work ranks among the few Bible commentaries that remain practical and accessible without compromising scholarship, making it an integral part of sermon planning and preparation.

Rather, they are a chapter-by-chapter study with explanations of the most important and instructive verses in each chapter. His test for a sermon, as he teaches in Horae Homileticae , is threefold: does it humble the sinner, exalt the Savior and promote holiness? I have a great jealousy on this head; never to speak more or less than I believe to be the mind of the Spirit in the passage I am expounding. Heinrich August Wilhelm Meyer, a German Protestant with a gift for languages, published the first commentary in this collection in at the age of thirty-two.
It would be a lifelong project, one he worked on concurrently with a busy pastorate and raising a family. Known to have an encyclopedic memory and an appetite for buying books, it was not uncommon for Meyer to be reading his contemporaries in his native German, but also in English, Dutch, and French—languages that came as natural to him as Greek, Latin, and even Gothic. For over forty years Meyer balanced working on new additions to the commentary collection while also updating those already published with multiple, serious revisions.
Before passing the baton to a few of his trusted peers to finish the NT, Meyer had completed sixteen volumes. Each book of the Bible is amply introduced, including biographical information about the authors, authorship controversies, information about the times of its composition, its intended audience, and more. Each volume focuses on the Greek text, and Meyer uses and discusses an abundance of sources and authors to illustrate meaning derived from the text.
Meyer also likes to include important bibliographic material which was integral to his studies and research. Meyer's scholarship was lauded across denominational lines, and the English translations of his works were highly anticipated. With the Logos Bible Software edition, you have instant access to all twenty-one volumes of this important commentary series along with a wealth of dictionaries, lexicons, and language reference tools.

Some time ago a Logos employee discovered an old volume in a used bookshop, and, finding it useful, brought it to work to share with others. Common to most of the volumes is a running set of notes, sometimes keyed to the verse but more often to a Greek word or phrase.
This introductory material is quite voluminous. The page count in roman numerals is roughly equal to the page count of the actual commentary, rising over pages in some volumes Swete and Lightfoot, particularly. Valuable notes on the Greek text are provided, while introductory and background matter is omitted.
His thoroughly Christ-centered view of Scripture comes through clearly in his extensive nine vol. According to Joel R.

Augustine , Tertullian , St. Jerome , Origen , and more.
In addition to Alford's Greek text, this massive work includes detailed grammatical, literary, lexical, and textual analysis of nearly every Greek word in the New Testament, along with comprehensive linguistic and idiomatic notes. The Greek Testament represents an epochal shift in New Testament exegesis. Alford's approach to the Greek text is primarily textual and philological, unlike the purely homiletical and theological approach which previously dominated English language commentaries.
This shift in approach not only changed the method of New Testament exegesis, it also altered the role of commentaries. He introduced German biblical criticism to the English-speaking world, thereby making a lasting impression on the scholarly approach to biblical translation and interpretation. The 8-volume Logos edition of The Greek Testament contains Henry Alford's original four volumes, which includes the prolegomena Alford wrote at the beginning of each volume.
The prolegomena discuss the critical apparatuses and contain introductory notes on the historical, textual, and linguistic issues that pertain to the Greek text of each book. In these prolegomena, Alford also discusses his method of textual criticism, and he evaluates at length the textus receptus and Tischendorf edition of the New Testament and the historical approach to textual criticism.
Many prominent numbers from the Bible—such as , 7, 12, 40—have entered the broader cultural consciousness. But what do they mean? And what does the Bible really say about them? In the 7-volume Numerical Bible , Frederick W. Grant surveys the structure and symbolism of Scripture, showing that the Bible is not comprised of piecemeal literary fragments and forgeries, but that its structure and symbolism reflects the careful intentions of divine inspiration.
The precision of numbers and the laws of mathematics, which undergirds the order of the universe, also undergirds the order of Scripture. Like the rest of the nature, Scripture exhibits traits of order, structure, and symbol. In fact, the numbers and the very structure of the Bible contain elements of divine revelation. How do we discern the voice of God in the patterns, structures, and numerical symbols found throughout Scripture?
Grant also provides his own translation of the Bible—noteworthy in its own right—along with notes and critical commentary. In these volumes, Olshausen discusses the leading critical points and unfolds the rich doctrinal and practical teachings of the New Testament. He also carefully traces the history of canonization and the entire history of interpretation. In his Biblical Commentary on the New Testament , Olshausen writes at length on historical and authorship issues, linguistic and textual issues, and the New Testament use of the Old Testament.
His commentary recognizes the organic unity of the entire Scriptures and the role of the Holy Spirit in its writing and interpretation, yet he encourages the use of historical and critical investigation of Scripture. In this way, Olshausen anticipates the debate over infallibility, inspiration, and inerrancy later taken up by B. Warfield and the generations of Reformed and evangelical biblical scholars that followed. Although his New Testament commentary is rich with scholarly insight on textual, historical, and linguistic issues, his main goal of explaining the theological meaning of Scripture for ordinary readers remains throughout each volume of the commentary.
The Gnomon of the New Testament is still one of the books most valued by expositors of the New Testament. He includes the principles of interpretation from Scripture to draw out of it everything that it contains, in conformity with grammatico-historical rules and without being hampered by dogmatical considerations. While Gnomon may not be a very well-known word, its meaning helps us understand why Bengel titled his work Gnomon of the New Testament. One of the definitions of Gnomon is "the raised part of the sundial that casts the shadow.
In the same way the sundial serves a purpose in our lives, knowing the New Testament as well as the entire Bible is imperative for every Christian. A recognized standard of expository commentaries written by twenty-nine eminent scholars who were also preachers, representing every important branch of Protestantism. The inception of this work took place at a time when critical and historical scholarship had arrived at mature and reliable conclusions concerning the text and truth of the Bible.
What had been regarded as subversive of the Christian faith was now accepted without question. To be sure, there have been changes and even modifications in the attitude toward certain subjects, but the general consensus of Biblical scholarship has not been thereby affected. None of the results has in the least undermined the accepted view of the Church that the Bible is the Revelation of the spiritual life, imparted "by divers portions and in divers manners," and marked by energy, variety and adaptability. The Bible continues to occupy its place of finality as the supreme Authority on Religion and Morals.
In addition to the Greek text, this massive reference work contains textual, literary, and grammatical commentary on nearly every Greek word in the entire New Testament. Lightfoot makes full use of Hebrew and Aramaic literature to provide thorough commentary on the New Testament. He uses Jewish sources not only to illuminate textual matters, but also the social and cultural context of the people, places, and events in the New Testament.

He was a Presbyterian minister and theologian. Luther, Melanchthon, and Chemnitz, while being theologians, were above all else exegetes, drawing the mysteries of Christianity prayerfully and resourcefully forth from the Holy Scriptures. Their calling as expounders of the Scriptures is a time-honored tradition in ecclesiastical Lutheran heritage that still proves itself today.
