No book in Scripture reveals the glory of God and Christ in more splendor than Revelation. At the same time, no book has been more misunderstood or neglected. Yet God wants his children to know this book, and promises blessing for those who study the rich of its divine truth. Join John MacArthur in Revelation as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.
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. Commentary sections comprise periscopes of Scripture (e.g., 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.
