Recently discovered in the Durham Cathedral Library, J. B. Lightfoot's commentaries on the Epistles of 2 Corinthians and 1 Peter are of great significance to both church and academy. Carefully transcribed and edited, these texts give us a new appreciation for Lightfoot's contributions to biblical scholarship, completing the Lightfoot Legacy Set.
Larry R. Helyer embarks on a comprehensive study of a much neglected figure in New Testament studies. Reconstructing Peter's life, theology and legacy from evidence in 1 and 2 Peter, the Gospels, Acts, Paul's letters and texts from the early church, Helyer renders a great service to all students of the New Testament.
The epistle of 2 Peter has had a very rough passage down the centuries. Its entry into the Canon was precarious in the extreme. And Jude makes two significant claims: He is a servant of Jesus Christ and he is a brother of Jesus’ brother James. Explore these ideas and much more by reading Green’s excellent commentary.
I. Howard Marshall examines Paul's counsel to Christians living in hostile times. Marshall's passage-by-passage exposition of 1 Peter (with verse-keyed notes on relevant exegetical issues at the bottom of the page) highlights the relevance of Peter's teaching for all Christians who want to act responsibly in the modern world.
In this passage-by-passage commentary, Robert Harvey and Philip H. Towner read 2 Peter and Jude keeping in mind the profound experience of forgiveness in Simon Peter's past. Now in paper.
Like the young church Peter wrote to centuries ago, Christians today still journey through a world torn by suffering and unbelief. Bringing the apostle's words to life, Edmund P. Clowney shows how Peter--out of his firsthand knowledge as a disciple of Jesus--portrays the meaning of Christ's life for us as we take up our crosses and follow him.
2 Peter and Jude are sometimes overlooked, yet their message for today's church is timely and compelling. Today, Christians must still guard against the false guides who lead young believers astray and cause divisions within the community of faith. Dick Lucas and Christopher Green offer passage-by-passage exposition of these letters.
Offering spiritual and intellectual sustenance to contemporary readers, this commentary edited by Gerald Bray highlights what the early church fathers found in James, the Peters, John and Jude--sound counsel for the faithful in the cosmic struggle between good and evil.
