PETER, PAUL & JACOB COMMENTARY

INTRODUCTION &

SAMPLE PASSAGES/VERSES

From Introduction:

The interpretation and comments of this work are based upon 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 – a translation by the author.

 

My conclusions reflect this expanded translation, and take into consideration the semantic range of many Greek words. Their potential lexical meanings are parenthetically inserted into the text of the translation, along with variant manuscript readings. I have given much attention to the significance of the Greek verb tenses and to the functions of the noun cases, rendering the different ways that each of them could be translated within its context. Each verse is presented in bold face with alternate renderings parenthetically given in light face. The reader should not give preference to one rendering over another, but should thoroughly and thoughtfully consider all the possible combinations. An = sign signifies that what follows is a paraphrase, which means that the literal Greek has been interpreted to assist the reader. Bear in mind that such instances are just one studied interpretation of that particular Greek expression.

 

The main guides for interpreting the original works are the translation and the context, together with careful attention given to the culture and historical setting of the people to whom these letters were written. A concise introduction begins the comments on each letter. I make references to some additional New Testament letters and to the four gospels, as well as occasionally citing Old Testament passages that relate to the context. A few other commentators' quotes are also cited.

 

In short, this work is intended to shed new light based upon a correct understanding of the Greek texts within the perspective of the local life situations and their first century contexts, and equally important, to serve as a catalyst for critical thinking regarding the impact of these letters upon our lives today.

 

May God grant us all a deep, refreshing draught from our ancestral wells.

 

To God be the glory,
