Product Description

In his commentary on the Letter to the Hebrews, New Testament scholar Edgar McKnight explores the two aspects of Hebrews as covenant--the appeal to the perfection and finality of Jesus Christ and the exhortation to faithfulness based on that appeal. He also highlights the interpretative strategies of the author--strategies that are often strange to modern readers. By bringing the ancient text into the world of present readers and to take readers back to the world of Hebrews, we are able to frame the author's treatment of the problems of our spiritual ancestors from the perspective of our modern world and problems presented in our pilgrimage.
In his accompanying commentary on the Letter of James, New Testament scholar Christopher Church presents the letter as something of a biblical and historical fossil, a surviving representative of a once-flourishing Jewish Christianity. The Letter of James exposes a form of early Christianity distinct from the Pauline line that later predominated.
This commentary uses a three-fold format for each section of the biblical text: (1) a commentary section containing critical analysis and interpretation; (2) a section that makes connections between the text and the modern reader by suggesting contemporary applications; and (3) special interest material related to the text. Also included is a CD-ROM containing all the text and images of the volume in a searchable format.
The CD-ROM that contains: the full text of the commentary, visuals from the commentary, hyperlinked outline and visual thumbnails, powerful search capabilities, Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search, and the ability to add study notes to the file.
