Before I really got acquainted with Dr. MacArthur I stopped in a bookstore and found the commentaries on Hebrews and 1 Corinthians. As a result I ended up reading the Hebrews volume as a personal supplementary material to a college class. While i began to read I fell in love with how John pulled out Greek words and showed how they added so much color to the text. This is one of the best thing about John's commentaries especially Hebrews, He brings it to life through the original language and makes it all applicable for the common reader. As a preacher, even though I disagree with his Calvinistic slant, he offers alot of key insights into the scriptures! Great material! I own the whole set, i'm only 26, He is solid, other than his calvinism!
The Commentary is excellent, but in the ebook the Greek is garbled, with individual words spread over 2-3 lines . For this one I wish I had bought the traditional book. Hope you can clean up the ebooks soon.
John MacArthur does an excellent job in helping our Jewish friends and Christians alike understand the connection between the old & new testament, old & new covenant, old & new priesthood and how the old covenant could only cover-up sin but the new washes it away completely. MacArthur explains hard to understand verses and unlocks the richness of God's Word.
This was the first commentary on Hebrews I ever bought. Nevertheless, I can not rate it to high. John MacArthur puts his dogma and doctrine ahead of Scripture with a ridiculous veiw that the writer of Hebrews is writing to 3 differnt audiences. If you are Calvinistic choose Pink. I like Bruce, Lane, Ellingworth and Attridge.
