The Life of Christ, 1David L. Roper’s in-depth consideration of the life of Christ begins with His birth and presents a parallel account of His life from all four Gospels.
The Life of Christ, 2Part two of David L. Roper’s study of the life of Christ covers the final days of Jesus’ life, including His death, burial, and resurrection.
Matthew 1—13This course is closed due to reprinting. It will be reopened sometime around December 2020. Sorry for the inconvenience. In the first half of his commentary on Matthew, Sellers S. Crain, Jr. examines the events surrounding the birth of the King and His teachings about the coming kingdom. He shows how the people’s reactions to Jesus began to brew into a storm.
Matthew 14—28In the second half of his study on Matthew, Sellers S. Crain, Jr. continues his analysis of Jesus’ teachings and works during His earthly ministry. Many people misunderstood His role as King, and those who rejected Him had Him crucified. Only after He was raised from the dead and ascended to the Father did Christ’s followers begin to realize the significance of His life and death.
Mark 1—8Mark presents Jesus as a lowly servant, as a man of action more than a man of words. Consequently, the doings of Jesus, not His teachings dominate this record of Jesus' life and ministry.
Mark 9—16Mark presents Jesus as a lowly servant, as a man of action more than a man of words. Consequently, the doings of Jesus, not His teachings dominate this record of Jesus' life and ministry.
Luke 1:1—9:50Anthony Lee Ash analyzes the Gospel of Luke as it narrates the birth and ministry of Jesus. Luke’s orderly account relied on eyewitnesses of Jesus and the earliest disciples.
Luke 9:51—24:53Anthony Lee Ash invites readers to study the Gospel of Luke as it narrates the death and resurrection of Jesus. Luke’s orderly account relied on eyewitnesses of Jesus and the earliest disciples.
John 1—12John is unique among the Gospels. Unlike the Synoptic Accounts, John omits some major events such as Jesus' virgin birth, temptations, and transfiguration and focuses on His private encounters rather than His public sermons. David L. Lipe offers a readable yet in-depth look. . .
John 13—21In his coverage of the fourth Gospel Account, David L. Lipe examines the uniqueness in John's record of the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At its core, this text is a look at who Jesus is and who He wants to be in our lives.
Acts 1—14David L. Roper delves into the details of the beginning of the Lord’s church as presented in Acts 1—14.
Acts 15—28This study by David L. Roper focuses on the powerful accounts of Paul’s missionary journeys recorded in Acts 15—28.
Romans 1—7David L. Roper expounds on Paul’s teaching that salvation does not come by obedience to the law of Moses. Neither does it come by personal merit or goodness. Both Jew and Gentile are told that salvation is by grace, which God provides, and also by man’s faithful response of obedience.
Romans 8—16David L. Roper continues his treatment of Romans, looking at the way Paul encouraged the Roman Christians to live the transformed life and share the victory of the body of Christ.
1 CorinthiansIn this letter to first-century Christians in Corinth, Paul addressed many questions which, with slight variations, continue to trouble the church today. Division, immorality, doctrinal confusion, and worldliness plagued this congregation; and one root of their conflicts—pride—is common among us still. Duane Warden's verse-by-verse study tackles difficult issues in the biblical text and draws practical application for Christians living in our own time.
2 CorinthiansIn this letter to the first-century Christians in Corinth, Paul addressed questions, such as authority and unity, which continue to trouble the church today. Duane Warden verse-by-verse study tackles the difficult issues in the biblical text and draws application for pure Christian living.
GalatiansPaul's letter to the Christians in Galatia was designed to protect the young churches from the teachers who wanted the Gentiles to be circumcised in order to be saved. Honoring this demand would destroy their faith in Christ as their only means of salvation. The true significance of the gospel message is emphasized in this epistle of Paul. In Christ, all are saved equally. As brothers and sisters, we are to worship and serve together, without regard for dividing lines such as ethnicity and economic status. Jack McKinney used his vast background in Greek to shape an extremely valuable commentary for Christians today.
Ephesians and PhilippiansThe authors present a practical study of these two letters of Paul to the early churches in Ephesus (Jay Lockhart) and Philippi (David L. Roper). Christians are called to be strong in the battle against worldliness and to be united as members of the body of Christ and citizens of heaven.
Colossians and PhilemonThe eternal truths and lessons in Colossians helped to shape the church in the first century. Paul taught Christians how to maintain a godly lifestyle and exalt Christ in a diverse society. The Book of Philemon, written about the same time, provides guidelines for Christian relationships. Owen D. Olbricht and Bruce McLarty draw practical lessons for readers.
1 and 2 ThessaloniansThis volume by Earl D. Edwards considers Paul’s message to the new believers at Thessalonica who needed encouragement in the face of persecution. It brings clarity to the apostle’s instruction about the second coming of Christ, a teaching that is often misunderstood today.
1 and 2 Timothy and TitusAs Paul neared the end of his life, he wrote to his "sons" in the faith, Timothy and Titus, to give these younger evangelists encouragement and divine guidance in their respective ministries at Ephesus and on the island of Crete. Paul urged them to render effective and fruitful service in the Lord's church and to protect, preserve, and practice the truth.
HebrewsOne of the most intriguing books in the Bible, Hebrews’ teachings and theology have helped to shape our understanding of Christ and the entire Bible. Martel Pace examines the theories of the book’s author identity and gives a detailed look at Christ and His Work, as well as the walk of faith. It stands as a wonderful source of encouragement, reminding Christians of why they have pledged allegiance to Christ.
J. W. Roberts explores this general epistle that outlines the walk of faith for Christians. He points out remarkable parallels to the Sermon on the Mount as well as the relationship between faith and works. This thorough exegesis will strengthen any Christian’s walk with God, as it discusses genuine religion, faith, and wisdom.
While the Book of James was addressed to the first-century church, it continues to instruct readers with practical exhortations on godly living. In this commentary, Duane Warden thoroughly discusses James' imperatives for seeking wisdom, being humble, avoiding favoritism, guarding the tongue, and being a "doer of the Word."
1 and 2 Peter and JudeThese letters offer encouragement to God’s followers when faced with challenges from both outside and inside the local congregation. Duane Warden helps students of the Bible gain a deeper understanding of these three important books.
1, 2, and 3 John
J. W. Roberts walks his readers through the Epistles of John, taking particular care to explain the stylistic features they have in common. Some of the dominant themes in these letters are combatting false teachers, following the truth, and hospitality. (Part 1)
Duane Warden intricate study offers practical guidance for interpreting the apostle's letters and applying them to daily life. Like the Gospel of John, these epistles maintain that the remedy for sin was introduced to humanity when God sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. John rebuked those living in sin, encouraged his readers to "walk in the Light," and assured Christians that they can know God. (Part 2)
