Since its appearance nearly 35 years ago, Black's New Testament Commentary Series has been hailed by both scholars and pastors for its insightful interpretations and reliable commentary. Each book in the series includes: an insightful introduction to the important historical, literary, and theological issues; key terms and phrases from the translation highlighted in the commentary where they are discussed; explanations of special Greek or foreign terms; references to important primary and secondary literature; and a Scripture index."To Dr. Caird" and this is the main thing" the Apocalypse preaches the authentic gospel; 'John's doctrine of salvation, like that of the New Testament as a whole, is in three tenses, ' but 'it is characteristic of his visions that the tenses are constantly interfused, ' for 'the end is not an event but a person, the first and the last. . . .'""

The Writings of John

A Survey of the Gospel, Epistles, and Apocalypse

The writings of John are some of the most foundational New Testament documents for today’s Christians. Most evangelical teaching about the life of Jesus begins with the Gospel of John, and Christian teaching on the end times relies heavily on the book of Revelation.Students, pastors, and lay learners need solid, up-to-date resources like this book to responsibly study and understand John’s writings. C. Marvin Pate addresses John’s writings according to their logical divisions: the Gospel of John, the Johannine Epistles, and Revelation. Each section includes a thorough introduction to relevant interpretive issues, including historical background, cultural setting, and theological context. Pate presents a two-fold historical setting for John’s gospel, encouraging readers to consider the text from the perspective of Jesus’ day and from John’s situation in Asia Minor sixty years later. He examines the Johannine epistles on issues like authorship, audience, and theological perspective. For the Apocalypse, Pate explores the challenges of John’s first readers, the nature of apocalyptic literature, and the Roman imperial cult, including as well an explanation of how the church has interpreted Revelation over the years. With its thorough discussion, textbook design and four-color interior, The Writings of John sets the standard for introductory texts on biblical books or collections.

A clear exegetical and theological reading of Revelation The book of Revelation is perhaps the most theologically complex and literarily sophisticated text in the New Testament. In this commentary John Christopher Thomas and Frank Macchia make the brilliant but challenging text of Revelation more accessible and easier to understand. In addition to their literary and exegetical analysis of the text, Thomas and Macchia offer sustained theological essays on the book's most significant themes and issues, accenting especially the underappreciated place of the Holy Spirit in the theology of Revelation. Uniquely, Thomas and Macchia work to locate and help readers better understand the original audiences to whom Revelation was written by examining its storyline and its connection to the broader Johannine community.

Unlike any other commentary on the New Testament, Chris digs into ancient religious culture throughout the known world at the time John wrote his epistles and book on Revelation. As the church started to accept and adopt false teaching in their day, they began to worship idols in place of God, like the Jews when they were sent to Babylon. Both Old and New Testament Jewish cultures adopted the same images from the surrounding nations and began to worship pagan gods. No matter Jew or Gentile, John's teachings were all understood. In today's world though, it is different; many are not taught after the manner of ancient culture, and when one reads the Bible, either the Old and New Testaments that references any form of symbolism as figurative language, let alone Revelation, it is foreign, with descriptions of strange beasts, candlesticks, trumpets, vials of wrath, harps, etc., making no modern sense whatsoever. However, when looked upon with the view from ancient culture, religion, and myths about the heavens, one can better understand the context John taught to the early church. The way mainstream interprets the scriptures today has brought about much confusion.

The end of the world is coming. From roadside signs to science fiction films, this slogan underscores our society’s nervous fascination with the future. Whether it’s a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect—at least for those who have no idea what it will be like. For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful. In fact, it should be something we actually look forward to. Why? Because God has told us how the world will end. And He has assured us that the end of this age will mark the beginning of a new, glorious one in which we will serve and worship Him in sinless perfection. Our eternal hope, as believers, is intimately tied to the end of this world. All of this is laid out in the book of Revelation. Not only is Revelation the inspired Word of God, it is also the only New Testament book that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who study and apply its message. As such, it is an essential part of every Christian’s devotional life. Those who ignore Revelation deprive themselves of a rich treasure of divine truth, and the promised blessings that come from understanding that truth. Join John MacArthur as he explains the book of Revelation in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.
