Item description for Bible Knowledge Background Commentary: John, Hebrews-Revelation (Bible Knowledge Series) by Craig A. Evans & Isobel A. H. Combes...
Overview This is neither theology nor a word study: It's a means of transporting the reader back to New Testament days to see, touch and hear as much of the world at that time as possible. Readers will appreciate the book's unique layout as it goes chapter-by-chapter through the historical, geographical, cultural and economic background of the biblical books of John and Hebrews through Revelation. The commentary uses extreme detail to take the reader right into New Testament settings, not through theology or word study, but through the sights and sounds of the world where Christ and His disciples walked. Since "any text apart from its context is a misunderstood text," the background information this volume supplies will help the reader gain the correct biblical interpretation.
This powerful reference tool is a book-by-book, chapter-by-chapter, detailed look at the historical, cultural, and economic background of the Gospel of John, and Hebrews--Revelation. Much more than simply theology or a Word study, "The Bible Knowledge Background Commentary" opens a window to transport the reader back into the setting of the New Testament to see, touch, and hear as much of the world of that time as possible.
the better acquainted you become with the background of the New Testament, the better you'll be able to avoid misunderstanding the allusions and references that run throughout the writings of the New Testament. Historical events, social customs, religious beliefs, figures of speech, turns of phrase, and institutions all contribute to how the Bible's first readers would have understood it.
With this powerful reference in hand, you will never look at the New Testament the same way again
