Overview

Noted Catholic author and exegete A. J. Maas' two-volume Christ in Type and Prophecy has been a standard reference concerning the prophecies in the Old Testament foretelling the coming of the Christ for over 100 years. Catholic and Protestant scholars alike have mined Maas' work on the Old Testament, which brings out the truth that the whole life of Jesus Christ has been the object of prophetic vision and divine revelation from the very beginning.

The Works of A. J. Maas (4 vols.) also contains The Life of Jesus Christ According to the Gospel History, Maas' harmony of the Gospels into one continuous story, as well as A Day in the Temple, Maas' in-depth look at the sacrificial services and Temple-rites which prevailed in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus' arrival.

Like his commentary on Matthew, these works belong in the library of every preacher, teacher, and student of the Bible. With the Logos Bible Software edition all Scripture passages in The Works of A. J. Maas (4 vols.) are tagged and appear on mouse-over. This makes these resources more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform lightning-quick searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of "son of man" or "Daniel 7:13–14."

Individual Titles

Christ in Type and Prophecy, vol. 1

  • Author: A. J. Maas
  • Publisher: Benziger Brothers
  • Publication Date: 1893
  • Pages: 485

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

Covering 110 passages from the Old Testament, Christ in Type and Prophecy covers in great detail the passages that in any way relate to the Christ. The prophecies in volume one have been arranged under four headings: the Genealogy of the Messiahs, Birth of the Messiahs, the Infancy of the Messiahs, and the Messianic Names. This division brings out the truth that the whole life of Jesus Christ has been the object of prophetic vision and divine revelation from the very beginning.

For each prophecy Maas gives first an introductory section on the authorship, age, context, and scope of the prophecy, then an exposition of the text, and lastly a corollary in which the results obtained are summed up.

The book is a mine of information, a clear-cut and satisfying presentation, and is worthy of a place in every minister's library. While it is pleasant to read straight through, yet if so inclined, one can pick it up and read almost anywhere, and find pleasure and profit.

The Protestant Episcopal Review

The kind of work both useful and interesting, for the idea is to examine separately and then collect together into one whole the prophetic foreshadowings of our Lord's person, office, and life, which are given us in the Old Testament. Theologians, and preachers, will, we are sure, feel specially indebted to him for the aid he has given them, and even those who may not share all his views, will at least be grateful to him for placing within their reach, within so small a compass, so full a collection of the materials on which their decisions must turn.

The Month

The work on prophecy shows a wide acquaintance with the literature of the subject, both Catholic and Protestant, American and foreign.

Bibliotheca Sacra

This is a very scholarly work, and apparently exhaustive of the subject, if one may judge by the extensive researches of the author, who seems to have ransacked the entire domain of prophetical literature in quest of information to be found among the most eminent interpreters of prophecy, and consulting the most prominent writers of all theological schools in Europe and America. . . His delineation of the prophecies of the Old Testament as they relate to the coming Messiah, and the wonderful fulfillment of these prophecies as they center in the Messiah, are indeed as beautiful as they are convincing.

Christian Leader

Christ in Type and Prophecy, vol. 2

  • Publisher: Benziger Brothers
  • Publication Date: 1895
  • Pages: 500

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

Covering 110 passages from the Old Testament, Christ in Type and Prophecy covers in great detail the passages that in any way relate to the Christ. The prophecies in volume two have been arranged under four headings: the Offices of the Messiahs, the Public Life of the Messiahs, the Suffering Messiahs, and the Glory of the Messiahs. This division brings out the truth that the whole life of Jesus Christ has been the object of prophetic vision and divine revelation from the very beginning.

For each prophecy Maas gives first an introductory section on the authorship, age, context, and scope of the prophecy, then an exposition of the text, and lastly a corollary in which the results obtained are summed up.

This second volume of a work replete with erudition, and in itself a monument of comprehensive scholarship, continues the exposition of the prophecies regarding the Messiahs which the earlier volume began.

The New Ireland Review

From a vast number of ancient and modern writings, Catholic and Protestant, A. J. Maas has compiled a minute account of the sacrificial services and Temple-rites which prevailed in Jerusalem at the time of our Redeemer's coming.

The learned Orientalist treats these subjects in a manner which throws much interesting light on many details of the Gospel narrative.

The Irish Monthly

This book is a valuable addition to biblical studies, and will be read with avidity by all scholars.

The Rosary Magazine

The Life of Jesus Christ According to the Gospel History

  • Author: A. J. Maas
  • Publisher: B. Herder
  • Publication Date: 1927
  • Pages: 621

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

A. J. Maas has formed one continuous harmony of the four Gospels in The Life of Jesus Christ According to the Gospel History. Preceding the harmony is an in-depth introduction on the authenticity of the Gospels.

Father Maas is eminently practical and eminently clear: he provides just the sort of comments which are required without running into excess, and he writes in a simple and concise language which all can follow with pleasure. The text has been framed with great care, so that every particular to be found in one of other of the four Gospels is inserted, and nothing beyond that added.

The Month

The words of the Gospel are made to speak for themselves, and the power of truth is irresistible.
