While the "The Greek New Testament" is longer e. James Rosscup writes that "This was the great work in the life of the versatile Dean of Canterbury. An outcome of this production was the New Testament for English Readers 4 vols. Alford was a Calvinist, conservative and premillennial, though not dispensational. He takes a literal interpretation of the thousand years in Rev. He shows a great knowledge of the Greek text and faces problems of both a doctrinal and textual nature.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon writes that this text "is an invaluable aid to the critical study of the text of the New Testament. You will find in it the ripened results of a matured scholarship, the harvesting of a judgment, generally highly impartial, always worthy of respect, which has gleaned from the most important fields of Biblical research, both modern and ancient, at home and abroad. You will not look here for any spirituality of thought or tenderness of feeling; you will find the learned Dean does not forget to do full justice to his own views, and is quite able to express himself vigorously against his opponents; but for what it professes to be, it is an exceedingly able and successful work.
The later issues are by far the most desirable, as the author has considerably revised the work in the fourth edition. Lectures to my Students, Vol. The New Testament part of this old work was first published in — It is evangelical and amillennial Often the explanations of verses are very worthwhile. C H Spurgeon "Albert Barnes is a learned and able divine, but his productions are unequal in value, the gospels are of comparatively little worth, but his other comments are extremely useful for Sunday-school teachers and persons with a narrow range of reading, endowed with enough good sense to discriminate between good and evil Placed by the side of the great masters, Barnes is a lesser light, but taking his work for what it is and professes to be, no minister can afford to be without it, and this is no small praise for works which were only intended for Sunday-school teachers.
Plummer then treats these letters in a most commendable way, providing some unique insights into the thought of the apostle and the nuances of the original text. The Minister's Library, Volume 2. James Rosscup writes "Though old, this is a good study from the Greek text which will be helpful in any more advanced study of the epistles.
James Rosscup writes "This work Gnomon , originally issued in , has considerable comment on the Greek, flavoring the effort with judicious details about the spiritual life. It has much that helps, but has been surpassed by many other commentaries since its day. Represents Combination of Bengel's Gnomon above and Comments by more modern expositors in brackets to make this more usable for those who do not read Greek. Spurgeon comments on the goal to make Bengel's Gnomon listed above more accessible -- "Such is the professed aim of this commentary, and the compilers have very fairly carried out their intentions.
We strongly advise the purchase of this book, as it Tischendorf and Alford have contributed largely Long recognized as a classic commentary on the Johannine epistles. First published in Bruce has updated the introductory material and provided a summary of the discoveries and developments since Westcott's time. Spurgeon commenting on this commentary wrote "We set great store by these lectures. Rich in insights, it makes rewarding reading. When we consider that these studies were really sermons delivered to the congregation of which Candlish was the pastor, it would be encouraging to see laypeople buying and reading this work today.
Reprinted from the edition. Illustration - A farmer was out plowing his field one spring morning. The spring thaw had just occurred and there were many muddy valleys in the field. Through one particularly wet place his tractor became stuck in the mud. The harder he tried, the deeper he became stuck. Finally, he walked over to his neighbor's to ask for help. The neighbor came over and looked at the situation. He shook his head, and then said, "It doesn't look good, but I tell you what. I'll give it a try pulling you out. But if we don't get it out, I'll come sit in the mud with ya!
Even the ones you might think are impossible to be forgiven. She had been taking an incredible amount of drugs, and with her boyfriend hacked two people to death with a pickax. She admits to the crime.
She has become a born-again Christian. Could she really be forgiven? Illustration - It is the closing scene in the motion picture, Ben Hur. The sky is disappearing behind the ominous looking cloud formations. The movie camera takes a long shot of three crosses rising out of a distant hill. Then the camera moves in close, closer, to the figure stretched out on the center cross. Lightning reveals a man squirming in silent agony to the rhythm of the flashes. It is raining hard. With each flash of light, the pool of rain water at the foot of the cross grows larger. Suddenly a single drop of blood drips into the pool and scatters.
Then another drop falls. The pool is now tinted light red. The rain comes harder and the pool overflows into another pool immediately below it.

The second pool reddens and enlarges, overflowing into still another pool which, in turn, overflows into a small stream. The blood-stained stream flows into a larger stream which meets a river which flows into an ocean. You only tend to deceive yourself and prolong the problems.
British painter and engraver William Hogarth was once commissioned to paint the portrait of an exceptionally ugly nobleman. As was his custom, he depicted the subject with the utmost frankness and realism. When the nobleman saw the portrait, he refused to pay for it, and a bitter discussion ensued. Eventually Hogarth, needing the money, sent a letter to his client, saying that a certain showman who specialized in exhibiting freaks and monstrosities was interested in the portrait.
Unless Hogarth received payment within three days, he would embellish the picture with a tail and other appendages and sell it to the showman for exhibition. The nobleman paid up, then burned the portrait. In fact, Colson said that even when Nixon obviously had a cold -- nose running, face red, sneezing, all the symptoms of a cold -- he would never admit it. A "propitiatory" was a place where wrath was satisfied, where the price was paid. The mercy seat on the ark of the covenant was a "propitiatory", where blood was sprinkled, and the sins of the people were taken care of.
Campbell Morgan told of a coal miner who came to him and said, "I would give anything to believe that God would forgive my sins, but I cannot believe that He will forgive them if I just ask Him. It is too cheap. I just got into to cage and was pulled to the top.
Was it not too cheap? What had not cost him anything -- salvation -- had not come cheap to God. This miner had never thought of the great price God paid to send His Son so He could rescue fallen humanity. Now he realized that all anyone had to do was to "get into the cage" by faith.

These journeys were often long and perilous, without the comforts of motels, restaurants, air-conditioned vehicles and paved highways that many of us take for granted when we travel today. And yet for Christians determined to maintain contact with each other, or for church leaders forced to pastor their flocks from afar, the tedious journeys were under taken despite their risks. In its pages we read the words of a pastor concerned about congregations of believers for which he has responsibility, but which lie at some geographical distance from him.
Absent from them, yet anxious about them, he pens this short epistle out of his urgent pastoral concern and deep love. He is like the missionary on study leave I met recently, who expressed anxiety and concern for "the family" of believers left behind him. We assume that 1 John is a letter, even though in many ways it looks more like a treatise, tract or sermon. It lacks the stereotypical forms characteristic of a first-century letter, forms comparable to our salutations "Dear Friends" and closings "Warm regards".
By contrast, 2 and 3 John begin as ancient letters should begin, with the identification of the writer 2 Jn 1; 3 Jn 1 and the recipients 2 Jn 2; 3 Jn 1 , a greeting 2 Jn 3 and a thanksgiving 2 Jn 4; 3 Jn First John, however, does not present itself as a typical letter. And yet 1 John has the character of a letter insofar as it is directed toward a specific congregation or group of congregations and deals with a particular problem that has arisen.
The author assumes familiarity with his readers. He speaks simply in the first person, sometimes in the plural "we" , sometimes in the singular "I"; 2: He expects his readers to know to whom this "we" or "I" refers, and he writes this epistle expecting his readers to heed it and respond. The Author as Witness John's authority rests in part on his role as witness.
The word translated "testify" and "to bear witness" has its roots in the sphere of legal terminology. A message from the Lord Jesus, the Word of life, the eternal Word, we should all gladly receive. The great God should be represented to this dark world, as pure and perfect light. As this is the nature of God, his doctrines and precepts must be such.
And as his perfect happiness cannot be separated from his perfect holiness, so our happiness will be in proportion to our being made holy. To walk in darkness, is to live and act against religion. God holds no heavenly fellowship or intercourse with unholy souls. There is no truth in their profession; their practice shows its folly and falsehood. The eternal Life, the eternal Son, put on flesh and blood, and died to wash us from our sins in his own blood, and procures for us the sacred influences by which sin is to be subdued more and more, till it is quite done away.
