SermonWriter: Luke 1:26-38, Advent 4B (The Fourth Sunday of Advent, Year B Book 9)
And oh, do his disciples need teaching! In spite of all that they have witnessed and heard from Jesus, they still do not seem to have a clue what his mission is about. Jesus announces once again, in a briefer form than in Mark 8: Yet the disciples still do not understand, and what is more, they are afraid to ask any questions Mark 9: Perhaps they do not want to understand this confusing message about a Messiah who suffers and dies.
Or perhaps they are afraid to reveal their ignorance. Maybe they remember the rebuke Peter received at Caesarea Philippi and want to avoid similar humiliation. In any case, their fear of asking any questions means that they stay in their state of ignorance and confusion.
Instead of asking questions of Jesus, the disciples turn to arguing with each other. When they arrive in Capernaum, Jesus asks what they were arguing about along the way. They are silent, too embarrassed to admit that they had been arguing with each other about who was the greatest among them.
True greatness, Jesus says, is not to be above others, but to be least of all and servant of all. It is not to ascend the social ladder but rather descend it, taking the lowest place. Intended for the lay reader.
His understanding of the Olivet Discourse is premillennial. Provides introductory material on the synoptics in relation to each other and individually. The notes provide many illuminating insights for the Greek student. Due to its age, it does not reflect the latest insights concerning the Greek. Keener is an outstanding exegete. His commentary is distinctive in its emphasis on the social-historical context of the Gospel.
It also contains a very useful page bibliography of secondary resources on the Gospel of Matthew. Click for Another Critique on Keener's commentary on Matthew. It may also be going out of print since it is not available at Westminster Books and is currently available only from Amazon resellers. However, most experts do recommend it with certain caveats. They often do not interpret the prophetic passages such as Matthew 13, 24, 25 from a literal, futuristic perspective See also note below on "Best Commentaries.
I would recommend notes by John MacArthur , Dave Guzik , Ray Stedman and John Walvoord to name just a few for an alternative interpretation of the prophetic passages in Matthew 13, 24,25 as yet future not as fulfilled in the past. Caveat emptor Virtually all of the top rated commentaries in the preceding two lists of " Best " commentaries interpret the Abomination of Desolation in Mt To wit , neither of these lists even give honorable mention to one of the best expositional commentaries ever published on the Gospel of Matthew, the four volume series by Dr John MacArthur.
The author often explains customs, gives views and reasons. In Matthew 13, he sees the fourth soil only as representing a genuinely saved person, and the leaven in a good sense.http://metallbau-wiederer.de/images/plaquenil-und-hydroxychloroquine-rezension.php
