Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible: 2 Samuel


Brazos 2015

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Pastors and leaders of the classical church—such as Augustine, John Calvin, Martin Luther, and John Wesley—interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a whole witnessed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern interpreters of the Bible questioned this premise. But in recent decades, a critical mass of theologians and biblical scholars have reasserted the priority of a theological reading of Scripture.

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible encourages readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition should inform and shape faithfulness today. In this addition to the series, highly acclaimed author, speaker, and theologian Robert Barron offers a theological exegesis of 2 Samuel. He highlights three major themes: God’s non-competitive transcendence, the play between divine and non-divine causality, and the role of Old Testament kingship.
