No5 Stars Out Of 5The MacArthur Bible CommentaryFebruary 16, 2022NoI like this very much.
UnchainedAge: Over 65Gender: Male2 Stars Out Of 5John MacArthur Bible CommentaryDecember 28, 2021UnchainedAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I see a very recent review that pointed out that this commentary was exactly the same as what is in the MacArthur Study Bibles except larger print. True! It is certainly the same for the John MacArthur commentary copyrighted in 2005. You won't notice that much difference between it and the latest versions of it either.
The reviewer pointed out that the only difference he saw was that the print was larger. Now that is important point! The font in the Commentary appears to be 9 point. The same size as the Bible text in the new Study Bibles. The font is of a different style, but still very readable and dark.
My first thought that the commentary was exactly the same size book as the new study Bibles, hard cover variety. But the commentary is actually slightly larger and heavier than the NKJV version! This does give me some sympathy for publishers like Thomas Nelson who have to arrange Study Bibles to contain information they think is needed but still allow person to carry it.
The latest version of the MacArthur Study Bible still contains too many uses of the word, "Palestine." If you aren't a Pre-millennialist like myself, you may not like John's comments on the Rapture or some his comments about the Book of Revelation.
You certainly could use the NKJV MacArthur Study Bible Second Edition as a Bible commentary for various versions of Bible that you want John MacArthur's comments on. The font for his notes is dark and clear--but it is 7 point,....
Unfortunately, just an hour or two after I submitted the above comment I stumbled across this!---material better placed in a Mormon or Jehovah Witness Bible commentary then in the John MacArthur Bible Commentary, when I put my original comment up for consideration. Personally, if CBS didn't even put up the first comment I would not have been sad about it. I do hope that they put up this one, however.
There is an article called, "2 Chronicles 7:14 and America"---Page 498 to make it easy for you to find in The John MacArthur Bible Commentary. I almost assume that it isn't in earlier versions of this Commentary? I believe the copy that I just got was printed in 2021. I don't find this article in any MacArthur Study Bible of the 2005/6 vintage, which this Commentary was supposed to have copied without additions?
In the first 1-1/2 paragraphs the article accurately points out that America isn't especially blessed and the Bible doesn't even mention the United States (What do you know about that!)
It is the third paragraph that is a load of blather of xenophobia.
For example this part of a sentence:
".... If the church is fit to receive God's blessing the whole nation will be the beneficiary of that,..."
Use the Second Edition of the John MacArthur Study Bible NKJV hardback for a Bible commentary!
I now have to give this commentary a lower rating then I did earlier because I don't know how many other landmines that are in it. I can't send it back, because like many of you I do mark up my books, My favorite marker is the Bic Ball point Pen, red ink---since you can see through the ink in most cases what was the originally printed, and it doesn't soak through the paper. A few "Palestines" and a "Jehovah" have already bitten the dust in this Commentary from my pen, also large portions of the aforementioned article has also been marked out.
Nationalist comments have no place in a study Bible or commentary--except those about Israel.
Antonio3 Stars Out Of 5disappointing Bible commentary!March 15, 2021AntonioQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Is an okay to good Bible commentary but sometimes John MacArthur explains some things which seems to be that he has never studied the topic of the verse and misinterpret them. He just straight up gives his insight and doesnt back it with convincing evidence. Example Genesis 6:4
