Top Highlights

“Although these three overlap, the first (agathosune, cf. Rm 15:14, Gl 5:22) has to do with interest in the welfare of others, the second (dikaiosune, cf. Rm 6:13; Php 1:11) with conformity to God’s standards, and the third (aletheia, cf. 1:13; 4:15) with following divine reality as opposed to human falsehood.” (Page 1853)

“First, proper interpretation of the book will deepen one’s understanding of the nature of sin as an offense before the holy God.” (Page 176)

“The theme of the book of Daniel is the hope of the people of God during the times of the Gentiles.” (Page 1280)

“Measure of faith (v. 3) probably means ‘the instrument for measuring, namely saving faith.’ Every believer is saved by faith, and if each measures himself against that ‘yardstick’ or ‘standard,’ conceit will vanish, and the diverse parts of the local body will work together more profitably for their mutual care (vv. 4–5).” (Page 1765)

“Roman men covered their heads when they worshiped their gods, and for a Christian man to do so disgraces his head (Jesus), for it implicitly put Him in the same category with Roman idols.” (Pages 1790–1791)
