John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Pastoral Epistles

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Pastoral Epistles

by John Phillips

Both Titus and Timothy were young, gifted, and beloved by Paul; both of them were entrusted with delicate missions on more than one occasion. But there the similarities end. Titus and Timothy are a study in contrasts. Timothy was half Jew and half Gentile; Titus was a full-blooded Gentile. Paul circumcised Timothy because the young man was already half Jewis… Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Acts

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Acts

by John Phillips

The book of Acts is a story of transition: it begins by showing us how the church came into existence, and at the end we see the final official rejection of Christianity by the Jews of the Diaspora in Rome. The story revolves around the personalities and ministries of three men - Simon, Stephen, and Saul. Simon Peter was the apostle to the Jews, and Saul (la… Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Book of Daniel

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Book of Daniel

by John Phillips

John Phillips advises us that his commentary is not much concerned with either the endless wrangles of liberal writers or with their criticisms of the book of Daniel. They have brought up their heavy artillery against it because of the minuteness of the predictions embracing even special events in the distant future. Here Phillips leaves … Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Gospel of Mark

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Gospel of Mark

by John Phillips

It is widely accepted that Mark's gospel reflects the teaching of Peter. The internal evidence suggests that it was written for primarily the Romans, with comparatively few Old Testament quotations. Rather than assuming knowledge of Jewish customs, it explains them, pointing to an intended Gentile audience. Scholars tell us that Mark's Greek was suit… Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Colossians and Philemon

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Colossians and Philemon

by John Phillips

Satan took the truth of God and found agents to deny it, distort it, and debase it. He would alter a word here, snip out a bit there, and add something to that. He attacked the Word of God, the Son of God, and the Spirit of God. At Colosse, he attacked the deity of Christ first. Then came the additions: intellectualism, ritualism, legalism, mysticism, and as… Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Epistles of James

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Epistles of James

by John Phillips

James was a man whom the Jerusalem church, a thoroughgoing Jewish church, much loved and honored. James modified his views on issues of circumcision, Sabbath keeping, and eating only ritually clean food as a concession to Paul's impassioned convictions. An all-out fight could have wrecked the church, that these two strong men avoided it is remarkable. Ja… Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Ephesians and Philippians

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Ephesians and Philippians

by John Phillips

The onslaught of a cult at nearby Colossae alerted Paul to growing dangers at Ephesus, but what destroyed the church there in the end was not falsehood, but formality. It became, so to speak, a cold, fundamental, orthodox, evangelical, Bible-believing church that lacked even a spark of its original love for Christ. As we read this Ephesian letter, what impre… Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Jude

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Jude

by John Phillips

Jude's original intention was to write a treatise on the subject of salvation. The Holy Spirit changed his mind, however, and he wrote, instead, a remarkable memorandum on apostasy. Suddenly, the full scope and horror of the apostasies that seemed to be surfacing everywhere in late apostolic times dawned upon him. Hence, his vivid little volume! … Read more…

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Genesis

John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring Genesis

by John Phillips

It is a book of facts, a book of firsts, a book of faith, a book of forecasts, a book of funerals. It has been called "the seedplot of the Bible" because all the vast forests of Scripture start there as seedlings. It is said to give us the beginning of everything except God. It is the book of Genesis. Genesis is… Read more…
