The Faith of a Dying Thief

Posted by on 03/24/2018 in: , ,

In Christ’s Words from the Cross Charles Spurgeon talks in great lengths about Jesus’ crucifixion, including those who were crucified with him The dying thief did the impossible that day. In front of multitudes of scoffers, he used the only part of his body not nailed to the cross (his tongue) to proclaim Jesus’ identity: the Messiah. The following is an excerpt from Spurgeon’s message.

THE FAITH OF A DYING THIEF

The story of the salvation of the dying thief is a standing instance of the power of Christ to save, and of His abundant willingness to receive all that come to Him, in whatever plight they might be. I cannot regard this act of grace as a solitary instance, any more than the salvation of Zacchaeus, the restoration of Peter, or the call of Saul, the persecutor. Every conversion is, in a sense, singular: no two are exactly alike, and yet any one conversion is a type of others. The case of the dying thief is much more similar to our conversion than it is dissimilar; in point of fact, his case may be regarded as typical, rather than as an extraordinary incident.

Remember that our Lord Jesus, at the time He saved this malefactor, was at His lowest. His glory had been ebbing out in Gethsemane, and before Caiaphas, and Herod, and Pilate; but it had now reached the utmost low-water mark. Stripped of His garments, and nailed to the cross, our Lord was mocked by a ribald crowd, and was dying in agony: then was He “numbered with the transgressors,” and made as the offscour-ing of all things.

Yet, while in that condition, He achieved this marvelous deed of grace.

Behold the wonder wrought by the Saviour when emptied of all His glory, and hanged up a spectacle of shame upon the brink of death! How certain is it that He can do great wonders of mercy now, seeing that He has returned unto His glory, and sitteth upon the throne of light!

“He is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

If a dying Saviour saved the thief, my argument is that He can do even more now that He lives and reigns. All power is given unto Him in heaven and in earth; can anything at this present time surpass the power of His grace?

It is not only the weakness of our Lord which makes the salvation of the penitent thief memorable; it is the fact that the dying malefactor saw it before his very eyes. Can you put yourself into his place, and suppose yourself to be looking upon One who hangs in agony upon a cross? Could you readily believe Him to be the Lord of glory, who would soon come to His kingdom? That was no mean faith which, at such a moment, could believe in Jesus as Lord and King.

If the apostle Paul were here,

and wanted to add a New Testament chapter to the eleventh of Hebrews, he might certainly commence his instances of remarkable faith with this thief, who believed in a crucified, derided, and dying Christ, and cried to Him as to One whose kingdom would surely come. The thief’s faith was the more remarkable because he was himself in great pain and bound to die.

It is not easy to exercise confidence when you are tortured with deadly anguish. Our own rest of mind has at times been greatly hindered by pain of body. When we are the subjects of acute suffering it is not easy to exhibit that faith which we fancy we possess at other times. This man, suffering as he did, and seeing the Saviour in so sad a state, nevertheless believed unto life eternal. Herein was such faith as is seldom seen.

Recollect, also, that He was surrounded by scoffers.

It is easy to swim with the current, and hard to go against the stream. This man heard the priests in their pride ridicule the Lord, and the great multitude of the common people, with one consent, joined in the scorning; his comrade caught the spirit of the hour and mocked also, and perhaps he did the same for a while; but through the grace of God he was changed, and believed in the Lord Jesus in the teeth of all the scorn.

His faith was not affected by his surroundings; but he, dying thief as he was, made sure his confidence. Like a jutting rock, standing out in the midst of a torrent, he declared the innocence of the Christ whom others blasphemed. His faith is worthy of our imitation in its fruits.

He had no member that was free except his tongue, and he used that member wisely to rebuke his brother malefactor and defend his Lord.

His faith brought forth a brave testimony and a bold confession.

I am not going to praise the thief, or his faith, but to extol the glory of that grace divine which gave the thief such faith, and then freely saved him by its means. I am anxious to show how glorious is the Saviour–that Saviour to the uttermost, who, at such a time, could save such a man, and give him so great a faith, and so perfectly and speedily prepare him for eternal bliss. Behold the power of that divine Spirit who could produce such faith on soil so unlikely, and in a climate so unpropitious.

See the Lost Sermons of Spurgeon [PICTURES]

Posted by on 03/22/2018 in: ,

In 1857, Charles Spurgeon promised to release all his earliest sermons. But, due to the incredible amount of other work he was committed to accomplishing, this dream was never fulfilled. Now, 160 years later, the Lost Sermons of Spurgeon have been recovered and his promise kept.

A TEENAGER’S NOTEBOOKS

Christian George, the primary editor for the Lost Sermons of Spurgeon collection, discovered 11 of Spurgeon’s handwritten notebooks in London. Inside, he found 400 of Spurgeon’s earliest sermons, dating from 1851-1854.

George found the very first sermons that Spurgeon preached while he was a teenager. Back then, Spurgeon had no idea that he would grow up to become the Prince of Preachers, sharing the good news of Christ all over the world.

REVIVING FOR PUBLICATION

The most wonderful part of the Lost Sermons of Spurgeon series is that George didn’t simply make the text available to us. Instead, he and his team carefully compiled the works and included:

full-color facsimiles

transcriptions

photographs

introductions

editorial annotations

a timeline

indexes

and a short biography on Spurgeon

LOST SERMONS OF SPURGEON

If you love reading Spurgeon’s work, we highly recommend this resource. It is curated by those who deeply admire and Spurgeon, inspiring them to pour all the time, energy, and detail required to make this volume fantastic.

Look Inside: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament

Posted by on 03/21/2018 in:

THE BASICS

We just released an updated, 17-volume version of the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT)! This resource comes with over 6,000 pages of conservative, modern scholarship—and it now includes commentary on 1-2 Thessalonians and 2 Corinthians.

This series is written by well-known and admired American scholars such as:

  • Thomas Schriener
  • Karen Jobes
  • Darrell Bock
  • Moisés Silva

Their research, writing, and academic ethic will guide you as you interpret the Bible. Additionally, the authors of the BECNT come from differing theological backgrounds, providing you with a healthy mix of viewpoints.

THE PURPOSE

If you have ever put together a sermon or lesson on the Bible, you have probably dealt with research-stress. There are so many different directions that you can take a message! And, there are so many different commentaries and resources that can help you get the job done.

However, some commentaries aren’t really meant to help you write a cohesive sermon. Instead, they focus on details and technical questions… which can be fun if you are in the mood to go down some rabbit trails! But when you need to buckle down and write a compelling, and accurate sermon or lesson, you need someone to summarize the details for you.

This is the goal of the BECNT: to give the information most important for teaching the Word to others.

The authors abandoned the verse-by-verse approach that most commentaries take. Instead, the BECNT answers the most important questions about a text in well-written, paragraph form.

This doesn’t mean that the extremely technical questions are never dealt with, though! You can still access these through the footnotes.

THE PROCESS

Each commentary contains a translation of the Greek text by the author. With this process, you are sure to get key information about the passage in its original language.

But, it doesn’t stop there!

The authors of this commentary use the Greek not only as a foundation, but they weave the language throughout their own commentary. You will read concise summaries and word studies, while also understanding the passage-at-hand as a whole.

Additionally, this commentary relies on new research and is unafraid of re-evaluating long-withstanding claims… without assimilation or abandoning tradition. ‘

THE CONTENTS

This resource goes above and beyond in content. The book introductions are thorough, covering information such as:

  • Significance
  • Authorship
  • Date
  • Unity
  • Text
  • Integrity
  • Destination
  • Purpose
  • Literary Structure

This introduction and outline will give you all the context you need for exegeting a passage of Scripture.

Additionally, the BECNT contains transliterations, maps, linked verse references, multiple indexes, and so much more. You’ll be able to navigate easily through this resource, finding information on the exact topic, passage, or even Greek word you want.

RECOMMENDATIONS (THAT AREN’T FROM US!)

Don’t just take our word on how useful this resource is! Read these helpful recommendations:

“In this age of unprecedented proliferation of biblical commentary series, it is an outstanding accomplishment for the Baker Exegetical series consistently to have produced what with only rare exceptions have become the best available commentaries on the Greek text of the New Testament book or books treated.”— Craig Blomberg, Denver Journal

“Rigorous exegesis by seasoned scholars with explicit evangelical commitments. This is also one of the best-designed, easy-to-read series as it includes intro matters, then each commentator’s translation, commentary, and textual notes for every passage. Very reliable.”—  Bruce Riley Ashford and Grant Taylor, “Between the Times” blog

Introducing: New Beacon Bible Commentary Set

Posted by on 02/21/2018 in: ,

This week, we’ve added 29 volumes of the New Beacon Bible Commentary Set to our website! This Wesleyan commentary based on the NIV is readable, relevant, and academically thorough. General Editors Roger Hahn, Alex Varughese, and George Lyons care deeply about the Church being well-equipped to study and teach God’s Word.

Want to know what’s inside? Hear from the Editor’s themselves:

GENERAL EDITOR’S PREFACE

“The purpose of the New Beacon Bible Commentary

…is to make available to pastors and students in the twenty-first century a biblical commentary that reflects the best scholarship in the Wesleyan theological tradition. The commentary project aims to make this scholarship accessible to a wider audience to assist them in their understanding and proclamation of Scripture as God’s Word

Writers of the volumes in this series not only are scholars within the Wesleyan theological tradition and experts in their field but also have special interest in the books assigned to them. Their task is to communicate clearly the critical consensus and the full range of other credible voices who have commented on the Scriptures. Though scholarship and scholarly contribution to the understanding of the Scriptures are key concerns of this series, it is not intended as an academic dialogue within the scholarly community.

Commentators of this series constantly aim to demonstrate in their work the significance of the Bible as the church’s book and the contemporary relevance and application of the biblical message. The project’s overall goal is to make available to the church and for her service the fruits of the labors of scholars who are committed to their Christian faith.

The New International Version (NIV) is the reference version of the Bible used in this series; however, the focus of exegetical study and comments is the biblical text in its original language. When the commentary uses the NIV, it is printed in bold. The text printed in bold italics is the translation of the author. Commentators also refer to other translations where the text may be difficult or ambiguous.

The structure and organization of the commentaries

…in this series seeks to facilitate the study of the biblical text in a systematic and methodical way. Study of each biblical book begins with an Introduction section that gives an overview of authorship, date, provenance, audience, occasion, purpose, sociological/cultural issues, textual history, literary features, hermeneutical issues, and theological themes necessary to understand the book. This section also includes a brief outline of the book and a list of general works and standard commentaries.

The commentary section for each biblical book follows the outline of the book presented in the introduction. In some volumes, readers will find section overviews of large portions of scripture with general comments on their overall literary structure and other literary features. A consistent feature of the commentary is the paragraph-by-paragraph study of biblical texts. This section has three parts: Behind the Text, In the Text, and From the Text.

The goal of the Behind the Text

…section is to provide the reader with all the relevant information necessary to understand the text. This includes specific historical situations reflected in the text, the literary context of the text, sociological and cultural issues, and literary features of the text.

In the Text explores what the text says,

…following its verse-by-verse structure. This section includes a discussion of grammatical details, word studies, and the connectedness of the text to other biblical books/passages or other parts of the book being studied (the canonical relationship). This section provides transliterations of key words in Hebrew and Greek and their literal meanings. The goal here is to explain what the author would have meant and/or what the audience would have understood as the meaning of the text. This is the largest section of the commentary.

The From the Text section examines the text

…in relation to the following areas: theological significance, intertextuality, the history of interpretation, use of the Old Testament scriptures in the New Testament, interpretation in later church history, actualization, and application.

The commentary provides sidebars on topics of interest

…that are important but not necessarily part of an explanation of the biblical text. These topics are informational items and may cover archaeological, historical, literary, cultural, and theological matters that have relevance to the biblical text. Occasionally, longer detailed discussions of special topics are included as excurses.

We offer this series with our hope and prayer that readers will find it a valuable resource for their understanding of God’s Word and an indispensable tool for their critical engagement with the biblical texts.”

HOW IT WORKS

If you’re reading a passage of the Bible in the main window, this commentary will track side-by-side with you in the Study Center. The Resource Guide will also let you know when there is an introduction or outline from this commentary that is applicable to what you are reading in the main menu. These features speed up your Bible study AND get you the information you need, without you searching for it.

Also, verses are linked in the resource, along with abbreviations. See what this looks like!

Look Inside: Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary

Posted by on 02/12/2018 in:

Have you ever been sitting in church and wondered what a Philistine era oil jar looked like? Okay, maybe that is a little too specific… but the idea is that you CAN find an image of this ancient artifact WITHOUT using wifi. How? We’ve got the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Background Commentary available for the Olive Tree Bible App. Let’s look inside.

STUDY MADE SIMPLE

The resource guide of the Olive Tree Bible App makes using Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary a seamless part of your study.

In the screenshot below (taken from an iPad) I have my Bible opened to Daniel chapter 1. The commentary section of the resource guide then shows me which of my commentaries have related entries to this text.

The circle next to the title indicates there five entries related to this section of Scripture. So, I’ll click on that commentary to see a preview of the those entries.

Since this chapter talks about Daniel and his friends being placed in a Babylonian learning environment, I’m interested in learning more about what that may have looked like. So, I tapped on the third entry that talks about the language and literature of the Babylonians.

Then, I read a fascinating article about historical Babylonian education that Daniel and his friends would have been exposed to. Thanks to enhanced commentaries like the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary I can easily gain insight that helps me view the Biblical text in new ways.

We’ve added a new title to our store! Keep reading to get a sneak peek into the NKJV Study Bible in Full Color. It’s packed full of helpful articles, maps, and more.

CONTENTS

Typically, study Bibles are known simply for their short comments in the footnotes—but the NKJV Study Bible in Full Color comes with much more than that. Let’s take a look at all the contents by type:

ARTICLES

When looking at the contents list, you’ll see a section called “List of Articles.” These titles are hyperlinked, and tapping on one will take you directly to the article in the study Bible. As an example, there are 9 articles listed for the book of Psalms, covering topics like Image of God, Royal Psalms, and The Sanctity of Life.

This study Bible also provides a short article titled, “How to Understand What the Bible Means by What It Says,” along with a preface to the NKJV. Additionally, you can quickly navigate to hyperlinked lists of Teachings & Illustrations of Christ, Prophecies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus Christ, parables, miracles, prayers of the Bible, a concordance and more.

INTRODUCTIONS

Each book of the Bible comes with an introduction. It provides you with important background information, timelines, description of the author and how the book was composed, and any other historical information you may need.

MOST IMPORTANTLY!

Last, but not least, there are over 15,000 notes in this study Bible. You’re going to learn so much while reading the Bible with this resource. And if you have a question on a topic, check out the List of Bible Times and Culture Notes. You might be able to find some answers without digging through the entire Bible first.

HOW IT WORKS

When you purchase the NKJV Study Bible in Full Color, you are actually receiving TWO resources: the NKJV Bible and the notes. You can have any translation of the Bible open in the main window while using the notes in the Study Center,

Best of all, the Resource Guide always knows when you have a resource that discusses the passage you are reading. So, when you’re studying the Bible, just tap on study Bible in the split-window, and it will follow along with you.

WHY IT’S USEFUL

Whether you just started studying the Bible, or have been an avid reader for decades, you will always be in need of direction and guidance. There’s so much to learn about the Bible, and we have to be careful to turn to the right resources for information on our faith! Looking to the wrong places (or not looking for outside help at all) can have detrimental consequences.

So, if you’re in need of a good study Bible, we recommend the NKJV Study Bible in Full Color. To learn more about this resource, see a view of how it works in our app, and even make a purchase, visit our website.

WHAT IS A CHRONOLOGICAL STUDY BIBLE?

Study Bibles contain tidbits of great information sprinkled throughout the Bible text. They give you insights you might not have known otherwise. The NIV Chronological Study Bible uses its notes to teach you about the history and culture of the Bible.

Inside you’ll find:
