Focused Biblical Scholarship to Teach the Text Effectively
The Teach the Text Commentary Series gives pastors the best of biblical scholarship and presents the information needed to move seamlessly from the meaning of the text to its effective communication. By keeping the discussion in each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes allow pastors to quickly grasp the most important information. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color images.
"The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost"--so says Jesus of his mission in Luke 19:10. Luke's Gospel is about this salvation Jesus came to bring. It is salvation story, filled with Jesus's encounters with lost, often marginalized people and the change he brought to their lives. And it is salvation history, as Luke carefully sets his narrative both in the historical context of its day and within the prophetic context of God's larger salvation history. In this commentary, noted scholar R. T. France provides valuable historical, theological, and practical insight for those who wish to faithfully teach and preach the powerful message found in Luke.
Few commentaries help the reader move beyond study to thoughtful application, and fewer still move beyond application to teaching. That's why I am thrilled with the Teach the Text Commentary Series from Baker. I highly recommend it."--George H. Guthrie, Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible, Union University, Jackson, TN
"Teach the Text is the kind of commentary I have wanted for a long time. It deals with the kinds of questions that busy pastors have to ask and answer in order to preach the Scriptures every week."--Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Pastors, communicators, and fellow Bible teachers, shove some books over and make room on your shelves. Here is the best of biblical scholarship made accessible, applicable, and relevant to life right here on the hot pavement where we need it most."--Beth Moore, author and teacher
