    Genesis

    An Introduction and Commentary

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    Series Editor David G. Firth
    Consulting Editor Tremper Longman III
    by Andrew E. Steinmann

    Genesis is a book of origins: of the world, of sin, of God's promise of redemption, and of the people of Israel. It serves as a foundation for the New Testament's teaching that Jesus is the fulfillment of God's promise to humankind. In this Tyndale Commentary, Andrew Steinmann offers a thorough exegetical commentary on Genesis, including a reconstructed timeline of events from Abraham's life through to the death of Joseph.

    The Liturgy of Creation

    Understanding Calendars in Old Testament Context

    by Michael LeFebvre
    Foreword by C. John Collins

    How were holidays scheduled and taught in biblical Israel, and what did they have to do with the creation narrative? Michael LeFebvre considers the calendars of the Pentateuch, arguing that dates were added to Old Testament narratives not as journalistic details but to teach sacred rhythms of labor and worship. LeFebvre then applies this insight to the creation week, finding that the days of creation also serve a liturgical purpose.

    Law as Covenant and Wisdom in Ancient Context

    The Lost World Series

    by John H. Walton and J. Harvey Walton

    To modern eyes, what we call the biblical law, or Torah, seems either odd beyond comprehension (not eating lobster) or positively reprehensible (executing children). Using a consistent methodology to look at the Torah through the lens of the ancient Near East, Walton and Walton offer a restorative understanding that will have dramatic effects in interpreting the text and in discerning the significance of the Torah for today.
