Resource Experts

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.

“Accordingly, the meaning of our present passage (1 Tim. 3:2) is simply this, that an overseer or elder must be a man of unquestioned morality, one who is entirely true and faithful to his one and only wife; one who, being married, does not in pagan fashion enter into an immoral relationship with another woman.” (Page 121)

“ aged women must be reverent, conducting themselves as if they were servants in God’s temple,” (Page 364)

“Then surely the realization of this hope will be blessed, indeed! Read Dan. 12:3; Matt. 25:34–40; Rom. 8:20b; 1 Cor. 15:51, 52; 1 Thess. 4:13–18; 2 Thess. 1:10; Rev. 14:14–16; 19:6–9.” (Page 373)

“Briefly, it refers to inordinate longing for pleasure, power, and possessions.” (Page 372)

“This is really all that is needed in clarification of our present passage, 1 Tim. 4:10. What the apostle teaches amounts, accordingly, to this, ‘We have our hope set on the living God, and in this hope we shall not be disappointed, for not only is he a kind God, hence the Soter (Preserver, Deliverer) of all men, showering blessings upon them, but he is in a very special sense the Soter (Savior) of those who by faith embrace him and his promise, for to them he imparts salvation, everlasting life in all its fulness (as explained in connection with 1 Tim. 1:15; see on that passage).” (Page 156)

William Hendriksen (1900–1982) earned his ThD from Princeton Theological Seminary. He was professor of New Testament literature at Calvin Theological Seminary, coauthor of Baker’s New Testament Commentary, and author of several scholarly works.
