  • Ungers Commentary On The Gospels

    $29.99

    Unger’s Commentary on the Gospels is a brand new, never-published edition of the observations and teachings of Dr. Merrill Unger on the New Testament Gospels.Included in this volume is a book introduction for each of the four gospels and a thorough verse-by-verse commentary on this New Testament group of books.The constant thought on Unger’s mind was teaching and explaining the Scriptures. Former Dallas Theological Seminary president John F. Walvoord, in his own biography, writes about Dr. Unger:He was an incessant writer and was extremely capable as a wordsmith. When traveling on a cross-country automobile trip, he often wrote in a notepad on his lap while his wife drove. The story is also told that when he stood in line waiting to get a ticket at the airline counter, he jotted down ideas for anew book (Blessed Hope, AMG Publishers).Just as he did in the classroom for over twenty years, Dr. Unger pours his heart and soul into teaching the Word. As one student said, he had a way of “being absorbed in the verses but then lifting the students into the heavens as to what the Lord was telling us in the words of the text.” Inside these pagesis a collection of the observations and teachings of one of the finest Bible scholars of the twentieth century.

  • Behind The Gospels

    $34.00

    New Testament scholars often talk about “oral tradition” as a means by which material about Jesus reached the writers of the Gospels; but despite the recent flowering of interest in oral tradition, the study of memory, and the role of eye-witnesses, the latest scholarly advances have yet to fully penetrate the mainstream of academic Gospels scholarship, let alone the wider public. There is no convenient book-length treatment that can be used by students, or indeed by anyone else wishing to be informed about this crucial topic.

    Behind the Gospels fills this gap, both by offering a general theoretical discussion of the nature of oral tradition and the formation of ancient texts, and by providing a critical survey of the field, from classical form-criticism down to the present day.

  • Parallel Lives Of Jesus

    $30.00

    In this highly readable introduction to the Gospels, Edward Adams demonstrates how the four canonical Gospels function separately-as unique accounts of Jesus’ life-and as narrative renditions of a shared story: the Fourfold Gospel. Building on the premise that the Gospels are ancient biographies or “lives of Jesus,” Adams examines parallel Gospel passages, highlighting the similarities and differences between them. He begins by approaching the four Gospels generally, then looks at each of them individually, and finally considers six key Gospel passages to further explore the unity and plurality of the Gospels in a more focused way. Adams’s lucid prose helps to make this text ideal for beginning students of the Gospels.

  • 4 : A Survey Of The Gospels

    $18.00

    The Gospels are a fourfold portrait of Jesus.
    Deftly guiding readers through “the four,” Peter Leithart delves into both the unique perspective of each gospel and their unifying witness to Jesus. The gospels are riddled with themes and types; Leithart reveals them and explains the Old Testament prophecies that intertwine with these apostolic books, as well as their underlying literary structures. He discusses the dating of the books, showing how the timeline of the four gospels lace together, and lays out Israel’s history leading up to John the Baptist’s birth.

    For anyone navigating the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, The Four will give you your bearings.

  • Integrated Gospels

    $16.99

    Although the “according to” Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are complementary it is challenging to the reader to comprehend the overall narrative as they are not organized by any consecutive line of thought or chronology.

    Each Gospel has a different emphasis and organization, shaped to be relevant to it’s own purpose and audience; reflecting the differences of interest and environment.

    The Integrated Gospels consolidates the “according to” Gospels into a cohesive, reader friendly Gospel, presenting it in a chronologically and thematically consistent text by interweaving and arranging the scripture verses into a singular continuous narrative, thereby becoming relevant to all readers at all times.

    This unique text is presented exclusively in scripture verses with verse citations in margin of the quoted scripture for reference purposes. Employing no added commentary or paraphrasing The Integrated Gospels faithfully preserves the integrity of the Word of God, affording the reader a new and beneficial perspective on “The Greatest Story Ever Told”.

  • Jesus The Messiah According To The Gospels

    $25.99

    GALATIANS 1: 7, 8 7which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!

    In this book respected New Testament scholar Pheme Perkins delivers a clear, fresh, informed introduction to the earliest written accounts of Jesus – Matthew, Mark, and Luke – situating those canonical Gospels within the wider world of oral storytelling and literary production of the first and second centuries. Cutting through the media confusion over new Gospel finds, Perkins’s Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels presents a balanced, responsible look at how the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke came to be and what they mean.

  • Storyteller : Comparing Jesus Stories

    $12.49

    The Storyteller looks at the parables of Jesus as told in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. By comparing the parables in each gospel we may be able to conclude why the writers of the gospels selected to tell the identical story. Is there a diverse meaning for each one, or do they all communicate the same message. We can definitely tell that some of the parables had multiple meanings and some were surely intended for a specific audience. A parable can be over analyzed, however, knowing to whom they were written and why they were told is a compelling study.

    Additional Info
    The Gospels And Christian Life reads the four canonical Gospels as handbooks for religious formation through communal practices. The book focuses on the communities that produced each gospel, the dynamic energy each gospel displays for creating and sustaining community life, the different interpretations of the person of Jesus, and the different systems of organization and leadership each gospel promulgated. The authors carefully describe the social context of each Gospel and delineate the practices the texts prescribe. Each gospel has an imaginative portal, an introductory chapter introducing the necessary background for understanding the social, intellectual, and religious setting for each gospel. Their reading of each Gospel builds on these foundations to illustrate the nature and scope of the community’s practices. Their work starts from the assumption that the communities did not look to the Gospels for biographical data on the life of Jesus to offer the reader a powerful reading of each Gospel community, its unique practices, and the way people were trained to become members of it. This book is aimed at undergraduate and graduate teachers and students, pastors, and the general audience eager for new ways to understand the New Testament.

  • Reading The Gospels Today

    $26.50

    As ancient documents, the New Testament Gospels can seem distant from contemporary life or irrelevant to modern society. Further complicating the task of reading the Gospels is the way they seem to introduce differing, if not competing, pictures of Jesus. This book is meant to help Bible readers understand–and move beyond–the difficulties involved in interpreting Scripture in our current context.

    In these insightful studies several biblical scholars explore the content of the Gospels while also discussing how to read these writings in relation to each other and in terms of today’s world. Some chapters consider issues that vex Gospel criticism, others look at particular texts or Synoptic themes: still others demonstrate how one’s immediate interpretive context helps to raise the issues and shape the answers that are found when we read the Gospels. Well organized, thoughtfully written, and widely accessible, this volume will serve to draw readers into the exciting field of contemporary Gospels study.

  • Social Science Commentary On The Synoptic Gospels

    $34.00

    Contemporary biblical interpretation has narrowed the gap between modern reader and ancient author—but chiefly regarding individual events and ideas. This commentary mines cultural anthropology, macro-sociology, and social psychology to elucidate the values, conflicts, and mores of ancient Mediterranean culture. Through detailed textual notes and “reading scenarios,” it brings life and light to the synoptic texts.

  • 1 Gospel From Two

    $57.95

    One of the key questions that motivates scholars in New Testament studies is the Synoptic Problem-the relationship between Matthew, Mark, and Luke as they tell roughly the same story about the life and work of Jesus. For years, scholars have argued that the Gospel of Mark was the first Gospel produced, and that Matthew and Luke borrowed their materials from Mark, and a few additional sources.

  • Gospel Of Jesus

    $40.00

    William Farmer has devoted much of his career to addressing the question of the relationship among the three Synoptic Gospels–Matthew, Mark, and Luke. In particular, Farmer has challenged the Two Source Hypothesis, which says that Mark is the earliest Gospel, and that Matthew and Luke used Mark and another document, called “Q,” as the two primary sources for their own Gospels. Instead, Farmer argues that Matthew was the Earliest Gospel, that Luke used Matthew and other traditions known to him, and that Mark used both Matthew and Luke in compiling a shorter, more ecumenical account of Jesus’ career. This competing theory is called the Two Gospel Hypothesis.

  • Passion Of Jesus In The Gospel Of Mark

    $19.95

    Which came first: a coherent Passion story or the Gospel of Mark? Contemporary biblical scholarship is divided over this issue of how, exactly, the Passion story developed.

    Whatever the shape of the story prior to Mark, it must have been imprinted with Christian experience as well as historical memory. Mark, in turn, felt free to retell and reinterpret that story for his own time and place. The Passion of Jesus was not only a story from the past but also, in the sufferings and hopes of the Christians of Mark’s time, a living reality of the present.

    The readers of this insightful work will find that the Passion of Jesus as told by Mark continues to hold meaning for the present.

  • Passion Of Jesus In The Gospel Of John

    $24.95

    With this volume on John the Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus’ death in each of the Gospels. But though last, it is certainly not less important or a repetition of the other Gospels. In fact, John’s portrayal of the death is as distinctive and unique as the rest of this “maverick” Gospel.

    Father Senior explores how the rest of the Gospel prepares for the Passion story. He then gives a detailed analysis of the Passion narrative itself. Finally, he explores the theological motifs that dominate the Passion narrative. With scholarly finesse and deep pastoral awareness, he makes John’s vibrant message of the Passion speak to our life and times.

  • Passion Of Jesus In The Gospel Of Matthew

    $19.95

    The Word of the cross is a living word, crying out for reinterpretation as life takes new shape and expression. Reinterpreting the Gospel was particularly compelling for Matthew’s church because his Christians lived in a time of profound transition. The Passion of Jesus, then, was not simply a story of suffering out of the past but a point of identification for the Christians of Matthew’s own time.

    For us twentieth-century Christians, who also know the peculiar suffering and hope of living in an age that is both dying and being born, the Passion of Jesus according to Matthew has special meaning.

  • Passion Of Jesus In The Gospel Of Luke

    $24.95

    The recent resurgence of scholarship on Luke’s Gospel is due, in part, to this Gospel’s special appeal for an age in which questions of economic justice, peace, and the prophetic role of the Churches questions all important in Luke are so urgent.

    Father Senior’s exegesis yields a strong sense of what Luke intended to communicate to his readers and, to some degree, what may have been the circumstances that shaped his message. He reveals the Luke who presents Jesus as a champion of the poor and marginalized, whose message of justice is proclaimed with a sharp prophetic edge.

  • Harmony Of The Gospels

    $29.00

    A classic manual that has gone through more than twenty printings, this book is the first Harmony of the Gospels to use the Revised Standard Version of the Bible. This simple and nontechnical book presents the Gospel materials in parallel columns in order that the Bible reader can compare the varied texts. It does not restrict itself simply to the Synoptic Gospels but includes the Fourth Gospel as well, thus enabling an overview of the major New Testament descriptions of the life and ministry of Jesus. Dr. Heim presents the story mainly in terms of the action involved, while at the same time disclosing the substance of the teaching passages as adequately as possible. He exposes the major parallels in several accounts without tearing texts from their contexts and without constantly breaking up passages and transposing verses. Although footnotes and cross references are held to a minimum, an index is provided for easy location of individual passages.
