Denton deliver's an extremely unique indispensable and invaluable study tool to the body of Christ. To every student of the bible this is a must read. Denton has brought the book of Hebrews to life, by staying true to the author's first century audience understanding of the Hebrew text. Here he's given us a clearer view into the author's true motivation of the text commonly miss-understood today.
Hebrews: From Flawed to Flawless Fulfilled is a must read for today's current generation. Denton takes hard pressed labors in taking careful consideration of its time statements and first century audience relevance. The key to Denton masterful work is found in his ardent and unrelenting commitment to the Old Testament text from which the entire book of Hebrew's is argued. Denton skillfully masterfully and contextually connects this verse by verse commentary back to its Original Old Testament Source. He starts from Abraham and continues through the Old Testament Patriarchs, and masterfully unveils its true New Testament understanding back to the law and the prophets. This masterful work is what true Old and New Testament Covenant Theology, is about.
In this work Denton has crafted a style of writing that is very welcoming and inviting to both clergy and laity. While Denton has written a highly theological work, it remains a truly readable treatment for all, yet without losing its teeth for those who appreciate strong theological language. The book of Hebrews is by far one of the most technically theological books of the bible. Denton has truly shown us his masterful writing skills as he transforms before us, what would generally be considered a very difficult text, and produced a very easy readable and understandable work.
While a full Preterist, he doesn't force a Preterist interpretation where it's not contextually warranted. He actually does a masterfully, interpretive job keeping this commentary in its proper Old Testament covenant first century context. Unlike most attempts at unlocking this book, he doesn't over look its time statements, neither its specific first century audience relevance.
I can honestly say, I've never read a commentary that's so honest in its commitment not to force its own presupposition onto the scriptural text. Nor does he push his own interpretive agenda. Even when he's not exactly sure of the proper translation of a given word or scripture text, he tells you up front. In those rare cases, he clearly state's his viewpoint as only his opinion.
I found myself somewhat amazed at how much of the book of Hebrews I clearly miss-understood, and so will you. Denton's knowledge and understanding of this text is highly in lightening, and will create a new found love of the book of Hebrews, not to mention answer a ton of questions. His verse by verse breakdown from the Greek and Hebrew in an eye opener. You will discover the true meaning of many words as they were actually penned in their original manuscripts. Denton not only does a great job at word translation, from the Greek and Hebrew. But he takes careful painstaking consideration as to how they are actually used in their own common contemporary everyday use of language. Thus not only keeping its Greek and Hebrew translation from their original manuscript in context, but also staying contextually sound, contextually true, as to how they would be used and spoken in their own time and language.
My only short coming is that it can be somewhat overly redundant in its verse by verse Greek and Hebrew translation breakdown. You tend not to see the forest for the many trees. But there is no real fault in that, after all, it is a verse by verse commentary. But you do kind of wish he'd just get to the chase. Hopefully, God willing, he'll write a second installment to that affect, without the Greek and Hebrew translation and verse by verse breakdown.
What you can expect from this work, is an eye opening view into the world of the Apostles and their first century audience. It was the church, the Apostles then existing first century contemporaries who were eagerly waiting the consummation of all things spoken by the law and the prophets. It was to them as well as the whole of the ancient scriptures, from start to finish. The apostles as well as the then exiting community of the saints were eye witnesses to.
The Second Coming Of Christ - The Total Defeat And Destruction Satan - The In Gathering Of The Harvest - The Last Trumpet - The Great White Thrown Judgment - The fall Of Jerusalem - And Its Temple - The End Of The Old Testament Law System - And The Resurrection Of the Dead - And The Eternal unending Establishment Of The Kingdom Of God.
All of the above events found their full total complete and consummated fulfillment by the close of the first century. Resulting with the end of, and deconstruction of the first Old Testament Administration. As Hebrews clearly stated then, the old order was waxing old and ready to vanishing away. And last of all, the fall of Jerusalem, and the temple.
That historical event was the sign which signaled that greatly anticipated and eagerly awaited first century hope, the coming of Christ in the clouds. Bringing with him immortality and life. Christ came as foretold by our lord himself, in the same like manner and glory as his father so often came throughout Old Testament biblical history. Now, in this present new age, God has granted to all men through faith, to whom whosoever will, Immortality and Life. IT IS FINISHED.
The book neither attempts to sound "like a commentary" nor is it written in "brotherhood style" (let the reader understand) and for these reasons, it is highly accessible, even to the layman. The content is organized according to the natural flow of Hebrews, which makes great for teachers.
I would absolutely love to see Mr. Denton do additional work of this caliber on the Revelation and the minor prophets.
