 Jonathan's fifth volume in a series of New Testament commentaries:

 

The End of the Old & The Beginning of the New

Comments on Revelation

 

THE BOOK OF REVELATION: The End of the Old covenant, and The Beginning of the New covenant.  Good News for all of humanity!  The mystery of John’s vision is not the end of human history as some have viewed it, but rather a message of hope and transformation.  This work sheds light upon the ideas and thoughts of God that are revealed through symbolic language and understood by hearing what the Spirit is saying.  Those who regard and discern the secret of this Unveiling receive a blessing..

 

A must-read for every student of Scripture:

 

             In depth verse-by-verse comments and explanations

            Comparisons with other NT texts and OT passages

            Citations from multiple scholars who offer diverse perspectives

 

A non-literal, metaphorical methodology is followed in accordance with first century writers who would have drawn upon the Hebrew Bible (OT) to supply the keys to unlock the meanings of the apocalyptic symbolism.  Thus, it is important to note that about a third of the verses in Revelation reflect passages from the Hebrew Bible. 

 

This work presents an interpretation of the text that challenges pre-conceived notions of there being a “final” judgment in Revelation.  Christ is making all things new.  This is a critical point in rightly comprehending the beginning of the New Humanity (cf 1 Cor. 15:45-49; Eph. 2:15), which Paul apocalyptically understood to be a present reality (2 Cor. 5:17).  The writings of other 1st century authors inform our understanding of the text. Interpretation of the visions are presented primarily as “already fulfilled,” and as speaking of events that were fulfilled, or inaugurated, in the generation in which John lived.  Included are reflections on what this means to us in our current day and age.

 

Comments are based upon THE NEW TESTAMENT, God’s Message of Goodness, Ease and Well-being -- an original, expanded and amplified translation of the New Testament by the author.  It is for students of Scripture, study groups, leaders, pastors, pioneers, visionaries, searchers and pathfinders everywhere.

 Jonathan's fourth volume in a series of New Testament commentaries:

 

Peter's Encore & Later Paul

Comments on Second Peter & Ephesians

PETER'S LETTER AND PAUL'S SERMON UNVEIL DYNAMIC PERCEPTIONS concerning God's plan of the ages.  This mystery which from the beginning was hidden in God is made known in Paul's theme of uniting all things in Christ. These revelations are for the multitudes, and Paul

writes of nothing less than a new creation.

 

This fresh, clear-cut compilation explores what God's reign looks-like, the realities of our life in Christ within the called-out, covenant communities, and humanity's positive destiny and expectations.

 

Additionally, Peter's insights and admonitions of personal and corporate growth in God's love are examined in detail.  The first century context of his judgment prophecies are considered in terms of the Old Testament apocalyptic character of the language that he used.

Verse-by-verse comments and explanations

Comparisons with other NT texts and OT passages

Multiple quotes from various scholars 

Additional articles on topical studies 

A bonus, expanded translation of Psalm 23, from the Septuagint (LXX)

 Jonathan's third volume in a series of New Testament commentaries:

 

Just Paul

Comments on Romans

 ROMANS IS REGARDED as arguably one of the most important Christian documents ever written. In his letter, Paul reveals insights into an empowering and satisfying walk with God. He faithfully expounds the tremendous scope of God’s plan for the redemption of man.

 

Paul repeatedly emphasizes that God initiates the action in every aspect. The weakness of the old covenant has been replaced with the new covenant of the Spirit. Bondage to sin is broken. Gift and grace triumph over works and law. Man is brought into new relationship, new freedom, new hope, and new life.

 

FOR MODERN READERS OF ROMANS, how we understand the topics of justification, salvation, atonement, judgment, wrath/personal emotion, participation in Christ and new covenant inclusion, greatly impact how we live our lives, and how we treat and regard others. It governs how we present to the world God’s message of goodness, ease and well-being in Christ that has come to us by His Spirit.

 

These principles become the continuous manifestation of that which calls forth praise in the wisdom and goodness and justice of God. The underlying theology of what Paul sets forth in Romans transcends time and place to speak to every generation.

 

This compilation is a fully developed and extensive work - a dynamic tool for students of scripture, study groups, pastors, leaders and seekers everywhere:

A VITAL PERSPECTIVE flowing from the ancestral wells of

first generation Christianity

 

This volume is a collection of commentaries on nine letters in the New Testament ~ one by Peter, seven by Paul, and one by Jacob ~ also known as James. Recent scholarship and the continual dynamic of the Spirit have emerged to present a clearer view of the original springs from which the faith has flowed.



Ad fontes: to the sources. Here we engage conversations with the
ancestors as we wrestle with the interpretation of these Scriptures as they applied to them, and as they are now appropriate to our time. Over the past nineteen centuries of the translation and interpretation of the Greek texts, divergent and partisan views have caused an accumulation of rubble which filled in the wells of the New Testament manuscripts with "earth," cutting off access to the original "springs." The flow of the Living Water from many verses and passages has been blocked.



Genesis 26 records Isaac digging again the wells that Abraham had dug. The envious Philistines had filled them in with earth, cutting off their supply and flow of life. Like Isaac, each succeeding generation must endeavor to re-dig the wells and re-open the providential springs to release a fresh flow of the Living Word to the land.



The interpretation and comments of this volume are based upon a comprehensive translation of the New Testament by the author: THE
NEW TESTAMENT, God's Message of Goodness, Ease and Well-being Which Brings God's Gifts of His Spirit, His Life, His Grace, His Power, His Fairness, His Peace and His Love.



The reader is given multiple renderings of the Greek texts
The perspective is relevant to the early cultural and historical setting Comments on each letter begin with a concise introduction

Critical attention is given to the significance of the Greek verb tenses Each verse is presented in bold face for easy reading
Alternate renderings are parenthetically inserted in light face

Multiple references are made to other NT letters and the four gospels
Additional quotes from various commentators are also cited

New Testament (JMNT)

 

Easy tip for discovering God's beautiful message in the JMNT: Type keywords for that Bible verse you always wondered about into a search engine (especially if you can't remember the exact book, chapter & verse in the Bible), and compare the Bible verses from other translations that come up in the search results with the JMNT. Simply make note of the scripture reference online (e.g.: John 3:16, etc.), then make the comparison by looking up the verse in Jonathan Mitchell's translation.  You don't need to read large portions of the JMNT in one sitting to discover how the comparisons may change your life (and your views about God) in a very rewarding and empowering way. Instead, simply meditate on any new insight being revealed, and then put even the smallest seed of truth into action in your daily life . . .

and then watch God make it grow (1 Corinthians 3:7)!
