Exodus: God’s Kingdom of Priests

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Exodus is the story of the first redemption of God’s people for Himself. Starting with a people enslaved and oppressed, seemingly forgotten by their God, it culminates with the Tabernacle. God had chosen His people, setting them apart from the other nations: His kingdom of priests. Exodus forms the sub-structure of the Old Testament–and points at every stage to the coming Messiah of the New Testament.

Allan Harman draws on a lifetime of teaching and preaching the Old Testament in this commentary. With careful attention to the Hebrew text of Exodus, he brings out nuances that otherwise might be missed, and shows the connections with other parts of Scripture to underscore the foundational character of this book for the faith of the people of God.

John A. Davies, Principal Emeritus, Christ College, Sydney

Allan Harman has had a life-time interest in exposition of the biblical text. He is Research Professor at the Presbyterian Theological College in Melbourne, Australia. He has lectured and preached in many countries and served as the senior editor of the Reformed Theological Review, Australia’s oldest theological journal until he retired at the end of 2013.

Ruth & Esther: There is a Redeemer and Sudden Reversals

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Ruth and Esther, the only two biblical books that centre on the lives of women, display the hand of a God who works in the lives of individuals to bring about his plan for the salvation of many. Ruth is an outsider who finds a home among the people of God and whose descendants include not only King David, but David’s greater son, Christ the King of Kings.

While Ruth’s story focuses through the mundane dynamics of a peasant family, Esther’s story plays out in the palace precincts of a despotic king. While God’s name is famously never mentioned, we see his handiwork in each twist and turn of the narrative. He uses improbable means and improbable individuals to save His people, and we see that God is on His throne.

In Dr Strain’s flowing prose, both the text and the theological truths imbedded in the text are explained with pastoral thoughtfulness and a deft appreciation of their place within the biblical canon. These are commentaries that preachers will benefit from and all Christians find hugely instructive.
