The Hendriksen & Kistemaker New Testament Commentary (HK) series is composed for the benefit of serious Bible students and pastors who want the insight of quality evangelical scholarship communicated with clarity. Each volume offers fresh translation, repetition of the text before each exegetical unit, verse-by-verse comments and applications, critical notes on the Greek text, and chapter summaries. Extensive bibliographies and indexes of authors, Scripture, and other ancient writings enhance the usefulness of each volume.
Begun by William Hendriksen, the Hendriksen & Kistemaker New Testament Commentary (HK) series has earned the acclaim and respect of Reformed and evangelical scholars and pastors. Since Hendriksen's death in 1982, the series has been continued by Simon J. Kistemaker. Four of the volumes compiled by Kistemaker earned the Gold Medallion Award (Hebrews, James and 1-3 John, Acts, and 1 Corinthians). The series was completed in 2001 with the publication of Revelation. The entire twelve-volume set may now be purchased by pastors, church libraries, and serious students of the Bible.
“In Heb. 12:11 this word ‘discipline’ refers to ‘chastening,’ which, though at the time when it is administered may not be pleasant, is appreciated afterward and produces excellent fruit. Cf. 1 Cor. 11:32; 2 Cor. 6:9; 2 Tim. 2:25. In 2 Tim. 3:16 this ‘discipline’ is the ‘training in righteousness.’ ‘Discipline,’ accordingly, may be described as training by means of rules and regulations, rewards, and when necessary, punishments. It refers primarily to what is done to the child.” (Page 262)
“‘Admonition’ is therefore prevailingly training by means of the spoken word, whether that word be teaching, warning, or encouragement. It refers primarily to what is said to the child. ‘Admonition’ would seem to be somewhat milder than ‘discipline.’ Nevertheless, it must be earnest, not just a feeble observation such as, ‘No, my sons; it is not a good report that I hear’ (1 Sam. 2:24). In fact, it is distinctly reported that Eli ‘did not admonish them [his sons]’ (1 Sam. 3:13).” (Page 262)
“‘Am I living the kind of life that enables me to engage in this conflict?’” (Page 276)
“Overcomers are conquerors, and in order to conquer one must fight!” (Page 271)
“The church, therefore, does not exist for itself. It exists for God, for his glory. When the angels in heaven behold the works and the wisdom of God displayed in the church, their knowledge of the God whom they adore is increased and they rejoice and glorify him.” (Page 158)
