Publisher's Description

Luke 1-5 begins The MacArthur New Testament Commentary's look at the longest of the four gospels. The commentary provides a verse by verse and phrase by phrase exposition of the text, taking into account the cultural, theological, and Old Testament contexts of each passage. Interpretive challenges are fully dealt with, and differing views are fairly evaluated. The gospel of Luke is unique and provides valuable insight into Christ's life and ministry. For example, it gives the fullest account of Christ's birth and is the only gospel to record several of our Lord's parables, including the Good Samaritan and the Two Sons. Use this volume of The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series to assist you in your study of this cherished New Testament book.

    MacArthur never disappoints!

    I am facilitating a women's bible study on Luke and have found MacArthur's commentary to be very helpful. The format of his commentary makes it easy to find answers to questions and explanations of difficult material. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    I have all of the MacArthur commentaries. One can not truly understand Scripture without context. MacArthur is the master teacher of our time. You may think you have understood Luke, but the commentary will show you there is so much more richness to Scripture available with context. You will say "wow" over and over as you study, with a big smile at the beauty and depth God gives in his word that MacArthur helps bring to the surface.

    This book begins with a very short preface explaining what type of commentary this is--an expository one, rather than a linguistic or homiletical (more academic) one. An introduction to the book of Luke follows and then MacArthur begins to explain each verse/passage from the first five chapters of Luke. In the middle of the book was a sermon John MacArthur gave about premillenialism and amillenialism in 2007. The explanations for each verse were easy to understand and give the reader a thorough understanding of the passage. MacArthur talks a lot about the settings in which the verses can be seen in--including the historical setting, geographical setting, personal setting, etc. If you are looking for a commentary that will really help you as you dig into the scripture, then this commentary is very helpful. One last note before I forget...with linguistic commentaries, I suppose it isn't as important whether someone is Reformed or Arminian in doctrine. But, with expository commentaries like this one, that perspective does matter. What I mean by Reformed is a belief in predestination and Arminian is a belief in free will when it comes to our salvation and how we are saved. MacArthur does write from a Calvinist and reformed theological perspective and is premillenialist in his perspective about Israel. These things particularly shape the sermon included in the commentary and what he chooses to write about in the commentary, but it only stood out to me especially in a few particular passages. MacArthur's explanations are very thorough and very good. Whether you are Arminian or Reformed in theology, this commentary is worth reading. * I was provided with a complimentary with copy of this book by Moody Publishing for review.

    John MacArthurs commentary on Luke chapters 1 through 5 is a very thorough and in-depth commentary that is actually easy-to-use. While it would be an enjoyable book to sit down and read through, most Moms are not going to have the time to do so. However, it is a valuable resource to use in looking up the meaning of a verse or portion of scripture. In just a few moments of time you can look up a verse from the first 5 chapters of Luke and have a better understanding of the passage, the culture, and how it applies to your life right now.This is not a book Im going to read to my kids, but it is most certainly a book that I can use to help me understand the Christmas story even more than I do now. I enjoyed learning new facts and interesting cultural notes that helped bring the account to life in my own heart and mind. It will be fun to pick one or two things from this book to share with the kids in away that will help them understand the Christmas story more with each passing year.MacArthurs commentary on Luke is a wonderful addition to a Moms bookshelf as well as a Pastors library as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally sound and practical to the life you are living.I hope that you will consider making an investment in your family this year by picking up your own copy and using it to spice up your Christmas morning with Biblical truth

    I don't always enjoy MacArthur's books, but the commentaries are excellent. They are a great resource for sermon preparation or sound Bible teaching of any kind.
