Overview

Verse by Verse commentary series by Grant C. Richison exposes the mind of God to the mind of man by expounding individual books of God’s Word verse by verse. Each study includes an exposition, a principle from the exposition, and an application of the principle to experience.

Verse by Verse is a practical, in-depth, and applicable commentary for church leaders. Each volume begins with helpful background information about each book’s author, date, purpose, theme and value. The commentary section is laid out in an easy to follow format. Richison provides commentary on every verse along with a principle that summarizes what the verse means. But Verse by Verse doesn’t stop there, an application section under each verse further illustrates how each principle can be lived out in the reader’s life. Verse by Verse was written to make Christians more aware of what the Bible teaches for their life.

Praise for the Print Edition

Grant Richison has given all pastors and teachers a new tool to mine the wealth of truth in God’s Word. I have always been a proponent of working ‘smarter not harder’ because of the stewardship of my time. When I used ‘Verse by verse’ it literally cut my research time by more than half, not to mention the fact that Dr. Richison has provided access to resources well beyond the volumes on my shelves! While the Word we proclaim never changes, Dr. Richison has provided a new and wonderful tool for our study of it! I believe every serious student of the scriptures who is looking for a portal through which he can have all the necessary resources literally at his fingertips will love Verse by Verse!

—David Uth, senior pastor, First Baptist Church, Orlando, FL

Verse by Verse through the Book of Daniel

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

Daniel gives hope for the restoration of Israel. The message is that God sustains believers during crisis and it challenges believers to expect God to fulfill his purpose. Daniel reveals the comprehensive program of God culminating in the second coming. It is the most important prophetic book of the Old Testament and is an indispensable introduction to New Testament prophecy. Daniel traces the “Times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24) from the captivity of Judah under Nebuchadnezzar to the second advent. It is a prophetic philosophy of history.

Verse by Verse through the Book of Jonah

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

Jonah is the picture of God’s grace. The book shows God’s grace reaching beyond the boundaries of Israel to a godless Gentile nation.

Verse by Verse through the Book of Matthew

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 180

Matthew is not chronological but arranges material from Christ’s life according to an overall argument: Christ is the King of the Jews, rejected by Israel. In Verse by Verse through the Book of Matthew, Grant C. Richison divides the book of Matthew into five major parts:

  • Preparation for the King
  • Program of the King
  • Persecution of the King
  • Presentation of the King
  • Postlude of the King

Verse by Verse through the Book of 1 Corinthians

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

1 Corinthians is Paul’s longest, most diversified letter, and the best picture of life in New Testament churches. It is a correction epistle about an unstable church broken into four factions, allowing immorality, and suing one another. Paul answers Corinthian church questions on marriage, liberty, the Lord’s Table, gifts, resurrection, and giving.

Verse by Verse through the Book of Galations

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

The book of Galatians shows that law cannot save a sinner nor sanctify a saint. It defends the true gospel and exposes false teaching about the gospel. Galatians shows how the believer fulfills the Christian life by walking in the Spirit.

Verse by Verse through the Book of Phillipians

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

The occasion for the book of Philippians is a conflict between two women (4:1–2) and it is a thank you note from a missionary to a supporting church. There was no extended doctrinal issue, no error to refute. Paul argues that the solution to conflict is to maintain the attitude of Christ (2:5) toward others. The word “attitude” is the key verse of the epistle.

Verse by Verse through the Book of Colossians

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

The purpose of Colossians is to set forth Christ as preeminent (1:18; 2:9). Jesus is more than an angel, for angels are subject to him. There is no need for any other mediator than Christ (1:18–19), for he is the head of the universal church.

Verse by Verse through the Books of 1 and 2 Thessalonians

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

First Thessalonians fortifies believers in doctrine and encourages them in holy living. It gives encouragement of the rapture. The book urges respect for leadership and gives instruction in church life.

Second Thessalonians warns about the false idea that Christ had already come in the second coming. Some Thessalonians quit their jobs because of this error. Paul proceeds to give proper criteria to recognize the second coming.

Verse by Verse through the Books of James and Philemon

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

James exposes the fallacy of dead orthodoxy (profession of faith without producing results). Action must match profession. Right acting must go with right thinking and right believing. We cannot separate doctrine and practice—faith works.

Philemon is Paul’s intercession for a runaway slave to a slave master. This book shows how Christians can mediate and communicate between each other even in interpersonal difficulties.

Verse by Verse through the Books of 1 and 2 Peter

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

1 Peter prepares Christians for suffering by giving principles for living under duress. It enables Christians to face persecution by the grace of God (5:12).

2 Peter warns of apostasy (1:13&ndash14; 2:1–3). It encourages Christians to remember the fundamentals (1:12–21). The main purpose is to help believers grow in grace to be established in the faith (3:18).

Verse by Verse through the Books of 1, 2, and 3 John

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

1 John gives assurance of eternal life to those who believe in Christ (5:13). The book motivates readers to cultivate greater fellowship with God (“abide,” “love”). It helps believers to understand standards for fellowship with an absolute God (1:7, 9).

2 John warns about stepping into the domain of false teachers. Abiding in truth is essential for brotherly love.

3 John warns against self-exaltation and self-assumption in leading the local church.

Verse by Verse through the Book of Jude

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 51

The false doctrine of incipient Gnostic antinomianism weaseled its way into the church, and Jude warns against subversion of the truth and exhorts to “contend earnestly for the faith.” Grant C. Richison divides the book of Jude into six major parts:

  • Salutation and Address—Assurance
  • Occasion and Purpose—Apostasy
  • Apostasy Exposed
  • Apostolic Teaching Prevents Apostasy
  • Guard Fellowship with God by Honoring His Truth
  • Consolation Against Apostasy

Verse by Verse through the Book of Revelation

  • Author: Grant C. Richison
  • Publisher: Logos Bible Software
  • Publication Date: 2006

Revelation demonstrates God’s sovereignty over the world and history. It gives the final truth about Jesus Christ—the unveiling of his person, power, and purpose (1:1). The book shows the ultimate triumph of the kingdom of Christ and gives a new perspective on history. It gives incentive to holy living and shows that God will ultimately deal with the problem of evil. Finally, it gives a preview of future events and the eternal state.
