2.0 out of 5 stars Item doesn't match description, September 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The description clearly says this is in Blu-ray packaging. It is not. It comes in the old style DVD case. At first I thought I got the wrong product. As a collector, I was disappointed because both the picture and the very specific description lead me to believe this would match the other discs I own in the series, with the cardboard sleeve, etc.

All that nitpicking aside, it did come with both versions of the movie. I have yet to watch it, as I just got it today, but if you're anal about your collection as I am, look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Greek Studies, February 1, 2003
I have several lexicons and I find myself using this more often than not. Many entries give needed background information, such as word uses in classical Greek and the Spetuagint, etc. like most mid-level lexicons. I also own the 3 volume work by Colin Brown, but that is a nightmare to try and figure out how to use. These 3 volumes stick to the practical format of alphabetical listings of the words, which means you need to know how to read Greek to find the word, but is time-saving nonetheless. Interpretational slants are largely absent from this work, unlike some other lexicons I have, making this a trustworthy set.
This lexicon is good for those of us who lack the spare cash to go by Kittel's 10-volume behemoth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the beginner, February 1, 2003
Mr. Burdick has done a fine job with this introductory level commentary. He makes good cases for the arguments concerning the Gnostic heresy, and his comments on love in the church are well said.
This is not the book I thought I was getting when I ordered it, as there is another much more extensive commentary by Burdick on these epistles, and I would recomend that one for more in-depth study.
My only other issue is his stance on perpetual forgiveness of past-present-future sins, he doesn't even bother to back up why he believes in future forgivness on a past repentance, he just states it and expects you to accept it. Which sort of contradicts his interpretation on needing to be continually forgiven. So does he believe in Once Saved Always Saved or not?
Other than that, this commentary is pretty good, especially if you like William Barclay's style and approach to commentaries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Topical Dictionary of Pauline Terms and Theology, February 1, 2003
This was the first volume in the whole IVP series I purchased, and because of it, I bought the "Dictionary of the Later New Testament." This whole series is a wonderful and insightful compilation of Biblical studies. This work is a concise, and yet thorough work on Paul's theology and termonology, and the novice student doesn't need to worry about a ton of theological jargon or a degree in Greek in order to read it, either.
I tend to prefer the more extensive "The Theology of Paul" by James Dunn, although this book may have a more logical orginization to it as a dictionary format. I usually sit down with both when I study, as they both have their strenghts and weaknesses as a resource.
I dont 100% agree with everything in this book, but I agree with a lot of it, and consider it a necessity in my library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent summary of Pauline theology, February 1, 2003
Do not let the size of this volume intimidate you. Dunn's work is extensive, and yet friendly to the newer Bible student and the experienced scholar alike. Rather than a commentary of all the letters, Dunn has painstakenly reconstructed for us the mind of the "renegade" rabbi from Tarsus by logically compliling the various topics Paul dealt with.
One small point of interest I personally was glad to see was his explaination of the "corporate" church and sheds light on the overly debated predestination issues of the Calvinist and Arminians, which I think both camps miss the whole point of what "election" means. But Mr. Dunn does not spend a lot of time arguing with other scholars, which is also refreshing.
I plan on buying more of his work based on this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introductory to Pauline theology, February 1, 2003
This study takes Godet's thoughts on the New Testament and narrows the scope specifically to Paul and his doctrinal stances. It's more of a generalized summary on Paul's letters, and doesn't get very deep or overly technical. It's a good resource for introductory level Bible students looking to go deeper into the Word. I recommend this with his other study on the New Testament, which covers tother themes and the four Gospels. Both are great suppliments for busy pastors.
For the serious study on Paul, Godet's commentaries on 1 St Corinthians and Romans are excellent, but are decidely for those with an aptitude for Greek.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great study course for the introductory to mid-level student, February 1, 2003
I'm a huge fan of Godet's work, as his exegesis on his commentaries is second to none in my opinion. My only disappointment with this book is that I thought it was going to be very thorough lke his other NT commentaries, whch are extremely thorough and soaked in Greek grammar.
This is just an overview of the NT, essays on Christ and various NT topics. It is very insightful and flows easily, and those who are looking to get a bit deeper in their studies (but dont want to be overwhelmed with theological jargon) will find this book a worthwhile read. His similar work on the Old Testament and Paul's letters is also worth looking at.
A good suppliment for the busy pastor or Bible Group leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anyone with a Bible should own this book..., February 1, 2003
This is a very extensive, yet concise topical dictionary that explores the countless metaphors and images so prevelant in the Bible. It is amazing how much God used symbolism to represent Himself or His promises, and most people (including the OT Jews) never caught it.
One point of interest to me was the meaning behind the lampstand God had Moses contruct. Most people overlook the details God gave concerning it's construction and what it referred to, but not this book...
If you are a fan of the IVP series that includes such volumes as "Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels," "Dictionary of the Later New Testament & Its Developments," "Dictionary of Paul and His Letters," you will thoroughly enjoy this reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for serious Bible students, January 30, 2003
This review is from: Commentary on Romans (Paperback)
This work is not for the lay person, and a basic understanding of Greek is beneficial to fully understand many of Godet's points. However, the more serious Bible student will find his exegesis brilliant and in most cases hard to argue, especially since his points are so closely intwined with the nuances of Greek grammar.
For a more introductory-level commentary, this is not the book to get, and I'd recommend someone like William Barclay, as his commentary is a bit more summarized and avoids getting too steeped in the Greek. But for a more serious study on Romans, this book should be on every scholar's shelf.


Word Biblical Commentary Vol. 50, 2 Peter, Jude  (bauckham), 377pp
Word Biblical Commentary Vol. 50, 2 Peter, Jude (bauckham), 377pp

4.0 out of 5 stars The Standard... Sorta, January 5, 2003
Bauckham has done a fine piece of work with this commentary, and his thoroughness in the Greek makes his points quite solid. My only real complaint is his arguments for 2 Peter not being an authentic letter by the Apostle. Although I understand his arguments, I think some of his presuppositions and conclusions have some holes. Michael Green's (less extensive) commentary on these letters addresses some of these points, and I think makes a better case for Petrine authorship.
Aside from that, Mr. Bauckham's work is top-notch and does a fine job of correcting some erronious teachings that stem from Peter's letter. For serious and in-depth study, this is the commetary to have.
