Dissertations on the Genuineness of Daniel and the Integrity of Zechariah

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

Hengstenberg originally intended to write a large comprehensive introduction to Old Testament studies that would provide a scholarly challenge to the results of high criticism. His purpose was to provide a rational argument for the historicity of the entire Bible. While this task proved too great, Hengstenberg was successful in laying out just such an argument for a number of books, including here the Prophets Daniel and Zechariah. Beyond the basis thesis of Henstenberg’s scholarly program, his work provides useful insight into the Hebrew and Greek text of these books, as well as regularly reference to contemporary ancient literature.

Ernst Wilhelm Theodor Herrmann Hengstenberg (October 20, 1802 – May 28, 1869), was a German Lutheran churchman and neo-Lutheran theologian. He was born at Frondenberg, a Westphalian village, and was educated by his father, who was a minister of the Reformed Church and head of the Frondenberg convent of canonesses (Fräuleinstift).

Lectures Introductory to the Study of the Minor Prophets

The twelve short books at at the end of the Old Testament in English Bibles are known as the Minor Prophets. This is not a claim about importance, but rather only size. Several provide little in terms of the historical context in which they were written. While others provide an explicit historical context, such as Zephaniah, dated to the final days of the Kingdom of Judah before its destroyed by Babylon in 586 BC. The lectures that William Kelly presents here provide essential background for understanding the purpose and context of each of the twelve Minor Prophets.

William Kelly (1823–1906), born in Ireland, moved to London after attending Trinity College in Dublin. Deeply involved with the Plymouth Brethren, he also became a prolific writer, earning the respect of theologians such as Henry Alford. He is quoted as having said “There are three things real—the Cross, the enmity of the world, the love of God.”

The prophets stand at the head of the various groups of teachers whose teachings are recorded in the Old Testament. Through their words and deeply personal experiences are the eternal truths that are foundational of Israel’s faith. A clear understanding of their purposes, methods, and messages provides a valuable key for interpreting the Old Testament, all the while pointing toward the New Testament.

The People’s Bible: Hosea to Malachi

  • Publication Date: 1892
  • Pages: 456

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

The People’s Bible is not a commentary in the usual sense. Rather than providing a technical treatise for the scholar, word or phrase by phrase, the People’s Bible is a pastor’s commentary that focuses primarily on those sections of Scripture that are of obvious and immediate value for the spiritual growth of the soul. Rather than working through the minutiae of critical discussion and analysis, Joseph Parker focuses on discovering the governing idea and principle purpose of each book of Scripture. Here he examines the governing themes of the final books of the Old Testament.

Joseph Parker (1830–1902) studied at University College and Cavendish College. He was a pastor in Banbury from 1853 to 1858 and then at Cavendish Street Chapel in Manchester until 1869, when he became the pastor of Poultry Chapel in London. He served as chairman of the London Congregational Board and the Congregational Union of England and Wales.

He made the case that all of the prophets and, for that matter, all of the Scriptures describe a single promise, as originally offered to Abraham, recast and rearticulated in various forms throughout the history of Israel, but never compromised or changed.
