IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Acts

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Acts

by William J. Larkin, Jr.

Following the ascension of Jesus, the strife-torn, ethnically diverse backwater of the Roman Empire known as Palestine was a hostile environment for the gospel. Despite that, the gospel flourished -- from Jerusalem to Judea, Samaria, and the rest of the known world. In Acts, the sequel to his Gospel, Luke describes how the Holy Spirit tran… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Luke Volume 1

Preaching the Word - Luke Volume 1

by R. Kent Hughes

Luke's carefully researched and "orderly account" of the life of Christ is one of the finest pieces of historical writing in all of ancient literature.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Romans

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Romans

by Grant R. Osborne

Not many books of the Bible have so impacted the movement of church history like Paul’s epistle to the Romans.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1 Corinthians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1 Corinthians

by Alan F. Johnson

The church of Corinth and the issues it faced are quite similar to those of today’s churches. We face ethnic, religious, economic, and social barriers.

Preaching the Word - John

Preaching the Word - John

by R. Kent Hughes

While each of the Gospels presents Christ with a distinct emphasis, the Gospel of John focuses on His greatness. As the timeless Creator-God of the universe. As the Word made flesh.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Corinthians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Corinthians

by Linda L. Belleville

When Paul wrote his second letter to the church in Corinth, he was addressing some of the same materialistic issues and tendencies towards decadence that assail churches today.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Galatians

Preaching the Word - Romans

Preaching the Word - Romans

by R. Kent Hughes

Few Christians would dispute that the book of Romans is one of the most powerful and influential books ever written.

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

by R. Kent Hughes

During Paul’s ministry, Corinth was a newly rebuilt, bustling, important city in the Roman Empire. It was a place full of pride, individualism, wealth, and religious pluralism. No wonder its inhabitants held little regard for Paul’s message! Sound familiar? Our contemporary culture has much in common with ancient Corinth. The relevance… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Philippians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Philippians

by Gordon D. Fee

Nothing hinders a church’s witness—and its day-to-day existence—like conflict from within.

Paul thus chose to reinforce friendship and morality in his letter, along with their “partners… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Colossians and Philemon

by R. Kent Hughes

In our day of massive religious confusion, the message of Colossians is among the most timely of all the New Testament books.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Thessalonians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Thessalonians

by G. K. Beale

The end times (eschatology) intrigued the early church as much as it does today’s church.

Paul composed two letters for them, so that they might have a fuller knowledge of the “last things.” Taken in tandem, they expla… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Peter & Jude

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Peter & Jude

by Phillip H. Towner

In Simon Peter’s eyes, the mercy of forgiveness is, perhaps, matched only by the awe of experiencing trust after his threefold denial.

Jude is too often ignored because of its short length and forceful … Read more…

Preaching the Word - 1&2 Peter and Jude

Preaching the Word - 1&2 Peter and Jude

by David R. Helm

Neither Peter nor Jude minced words about the realities that would confront every Christian and that were confronting the church at large-suffering and persecution, contradictory views of the gospel, constant challenges to the faith at the hands of false teachers.
