Second peter and Jude are sometimes neglected as the "dark corner" of the New Testament. But Christians avoid these two letters to their peril. Both letters were written to expose false teachers, and to strengthen believers in the truth. In a day when sound doctrine is devalued, their warning has never been more needed.
The indispensable MacArthur Commentary on the New Testament emphasizes both an explanation and application of Scripture by an examination of the text that seeks to illuminate broad doctrinal themes in the service of God's people. Each passage is related to other passages of Scripture dealing with similar themes, and when necessary draws in linguistic questions to further support adequate exposition of the text-though these are never technical.
Sharp, clear outlines are provided for each section of the biblical book and guide the commentary discussion throughout each volume in the series. Sections comprise periscopes (i.e., 2 Timothy 1.1-5) and key words/phrases are highlighted in bold.
The MacArthur New Testament Commentary comes from the experience, insight, and wisdom of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible teachers of our day. Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Bible without being unduly technical. This series helps provide a better, fuller, and richer understanding of God's word while challenging all readers-no matter what their expertise-to grow in a vibrant, personal spiritual walk.
