ITEM 1– A GREAT BIBLE COMMENTARY

 

THE PEOPLE'S NEW TESTAMENT COMMENTARY

 

This document is 798 pages of a Bible study goldmine containing commentary that easily supplies the meat for a good sermon or Bible study.

Here is just a small sample of just one verse (Matthew 16:18) and how much sermon building, Bible study info is present in this commentary:

Sample:

MATTHEW 16:18. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church. This is the first time Jesus speaks of his church, and here, as not yet founded. Three terms are to be noted:

(1) Peter, in the Greek, Petros, meaning a single stone;

(2) Rock, in the Greek, Petra,which means the solid, immovable bed-rock, a great mass like a cliff, and

(3) church, Greek, ecclesia, those “called out,” the fellowship of believers, the organized society of Christ, the kingdom of heaven on earth. There is probably no passage in the word of God that has called forth more discussion. The Papal church insists that Peter is the rock upon which Christ founded his church. The Catholic position is based upon the fact that Peter means a stone (see John 1:42), and the Savior's language might be rendered, “Thou art a stone, and upon this rock I will build my church.”

The Catholic view is untenable, for

1. The Savior does not say, “Thou art a stone, and upon thee I will build,” etc., or “Thou art a rock, and upon this rock I will build.” He changes the word in the Greek from Petros (Peter, a stone) to Petra, a rock, or ledge of rock—a solid bed-rock.

2. Every saint is a stone (see 1 Pet. 2:5). The Lord declares that Peter is one these living stones, made such by his confession of faith, and ready to be built into the church, the spiritual temple, formed of living stones, and built upon the rock. So is every confessor of Christ.

In order to settle what the Savior does mean by the rock, we must consider the 18th and 19th verses together, and keep in mind the entire figure. This figure portrays

(1) a Builder, Christ;

(2) a temple to be built, composed of lively stones, the church;

(3) a foundation for that temple, the rock;

(4) the gates of an unfriendly city or power which shall seek its destruction, hell, or more correctly, Hades, the unseen abode of the dead, the grave;

(5) a door-keeper of the church, or spiritual temple, with his keys, Peter. Peter's place in the figure is not that of the foundation, but that of the key-holder, or turnkey. The only difficulty is in settling what the Lord means by the rock. Since this rock is the foundation of the church, the central principle, the fundamental idea, we are aided to a correct decision by the teachings of the Word elsewhere. We learn from 1 Cor. 3:11, “That other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” This excludes Peter or any human platform. Christ is often called a stone: “the stone that the builders rejected,” “the chief corner stone,” “the stone that is the head of the corner,” “the spiritual rock which is Christ.” Faith in Christ held in the heart, and confessed with the lips is the very foundation of the spiritual life and of the church. This constituted the fundamental difference in apostolic days between Christians and unbelievers, the church and the world. It does still. It is the essence of the teaching of the New Testament that the platform or foundation of the Christian society, the church, is this belief that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. It is then Peter's grand confession, faith in the Spiritual Rock, the faith that lays hold of Christ, belief that he is the Anointed of God, the Divine Savior, that the Lord pronounces the rock upon which he will found his church. That this view is correct is shown by a correct understanding of the declaration, The gates of hades shall not prevail against it. From the gates of the city always marched forth its armies. The powers of hades are represented by its gates. Hades is not hell (Gehenna), but the unseen abode of the dead that holds the departed within its gates. Just after these words the Lord talks of his death, or entering hades. Six months later the Sanhedrim sent him to death for making the same confession Peter had just made. See Matt. 26:64–67. They expected to demonstrate that the confession of his divinity which he had made was false by sending him to hades, which they supposed would hold him and prevail against the confession of the Rock. He was sent there from the cross, but the gates of hades did not prevail, for they could not hold him, and the living Savior, rising triumphant from the tomb, was the unanswerable argument that his own and Peter's confession was a rock that could never be moved. His resurrection demonstrated that he is the Rock. Hades did not prevail.
 

Remember the little sample above is just one verse out of all the verses in the New Testament. 798 pages of commentary for you to devour and use.

ITEM 3- A GREAT BIBLE DICTIONARY

 

EASTON BIBLE DICTIONARY

Every student of the Bible needs a copy of the well respected Easton Bible Dictionary. This is a repository or 804 pages of information about the people, places, and things found throughout the Scripture. Supplying historical and archeological and biblical commentary this is a great aid to anyone who studies or teaches the Bible. Here is a sample:

Sample:

Leprosy
(Heb. tsara’ath, a “smiting,” a “stroke,” because the disease was regarded as a direct providential
infliction). This name is from the Greek lepra, by which the Greek physicians designated the disease
from its scaliness. We have the description of the disease, as well as the regulations connected with
it, in Lev. 13; 14; Num. 12:10-15, etc. There were reckoned six different circumstances under which
it might develop itself, (1) without any apparent cause (Lev. 13:2-8); (2) its reappearance (9-17);
(3) from an inflammation (18-28); (4) on the head or chin (29-37); (5) in white polished spots (38,
39); (6) at the back or in the front of the head (40-44).
Lepers were required to live outside the camp or city (Num. 5:1-4; 12:10-15, etc.). This disease
was regarded as an awful punishment from the Lord (2 Kings 5:7; 2 Chr. 26:20). (See MIRIAM;
GEHAZI; UZZIAH.)
This disease “begins with specks on the eyelids and on the palms, gradually spreading over the
body, bleaching the hair white wherever they appear, crusting the affected parts with white scales,
and causing terrible sores and swellings. From the skin the disease eats inward to the bones, rotting
the whole body piecemeal.” “In Christ’s day no leper could live in a walled town, though he might
in an open village. But wherever he was he was required to have his outer garment rent as a sign
of deep grief, to go bareheaded, and to cover his beard with his mantle, as if in lamentation at his
own virtual death. He had further to warn passers-by to keep away from him, by calling out,
‘Unclean! unclean!’ nor could he speak to any one, or receive or return a salutation, since in the
East this involves an embrace.”
That the disease was not contagious is evident from the regulations regarding it (Lev. 13:12,
13, 36; 2 Kings 5:1). Leprosy was “the outward and visible sign of the innermost spiritual corruption;
a meet emblem in its small beginnings, its gradual spread, its internal disfigurement, its dissolution
little by little of the whole body, of that which corrupts, degrades, and defiles man’s inner nature,
and renders him unmeet to enter the presence of a pure and holy God” (Maclear’s Handbook O.T).
Our Lord cured lepers (Matt. 8:2, 3; Mark 1:40-42). This divine power so manifested illustrates
his gracious dealings with men in curing the leprosy of the soul, the fatal taint of sin.
