The Art of Exegetical Theology in Preaching

Dr. Warren Gage headshotToday’s guest post is by Dr. Warren Gage, professor of Old Testament and senior advisor to the president at Knox Theological Seminary. Dr. Gage is joining us to talk about about his upcoming Doctor of Ministry class, The Art of Exegetical Theology in Preaching, a five-day intensive course held in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Apply for your DMin from Knox, learn using Logos, and study under Dr. Gage this June!

There was a special power in the ministries of Jesus, John the Baptist, Paul, and John the Beloved—one that needs a new awakening. The gospel preacher should understand that a large part of his or her calling is to be a “friend of the Bridegroom.”

Jesus explicitly understood himself as a bridegroom, a fact attested to by his wedding parables (Matt. 22:1–14, 25:1–13). John the Baptist’s astonishing ministry was preparing a repentant and cleansed people as a bride for Jesus (John 3:29–30). Paul’s great ministry was, likewise, consciously framed by his gospel purpose stated to the Corinthians, a church beset with issues of moral purity: “For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.” (2 Cor. 11:2, see also Eph. 5:22–33). Likewise, John the Beloved spoke in the most sublime poetry of the consummating vision of the bride of the Lamb descending from heaven, arrayed like a bride made ready for her groom (Rev. 21:1–4).

The bride of the Lamb

It is this destiny of the people of God—the fact that they have been chosen to be betrothed to the Lamb of Glory—that can transform the vision of the pastoral role and infuse the preaching role of the minister with great power. We pastors need the imagination to realize that worldly impurity can be transformed by Christ’s love into heavenly virginity. If God can bring forth life from death, why should it seem impossible for God to transform an impure people into the Lamb’s virgin bride?

This class is based on the theory that, if Christ is foreseen in the prophets and patriarchs of the Old Testament, surely their brides would likewise foresee the church, the bride of the Lamb.

It is centered on the forthcoming text entitled The Romance of Redemption: Biblical Types of the Bride of Christ.

The voice of the Bridegroom

This course explores the redemptive message of the Bible as story. It teaches us about heaven’s Bridegroom, who came to slay the great, red dragon, all to rescue his beloved and take her to the palace of his Father, the King. It teaches us to preach the message of the Bible as a wooing of the beloved, the church of all the ages. It teaches us, with John the Baptist, to hear the voice of the Bridegroom, and so to rejoice! (John 3:29)

If we look at the story of the Bible from this literary point of view, it is clear that the Bible is the story of a heavenly romance. Genesis begins with the account of a wedding. There is a bride (Eve) and a bridegroom (Adam) in a garden paradise. After a great expanse of time, the Bible ends in Revelation with the story of another wedding. Once again there is a bride (the community of faith) and a Bridegroom (Jesus) in a garden paradise. But now there is no serpent. There is nothing to disturb the everlasting bliss of the Bridegroom and his bride. We can thus understand why the ancient prophet comforted Israel with her nuptial hope: “as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you” (Isa. 62:5)!

Get $500 Off the International Critical Commentaries

international-critical-commentary-seriesThis month only, we’re offering special savings on one of our top-selling resources—the International Critical Commentary Series. Through the end of March, you can use coupon code ICC2014 to save over $500* on more than a century’s worth of top-notch biblical scholarship.

Own one of the world’s finest commentary sets

For over 100 years, the ICC has ranked among the best commentaries in the world. In Logos, this carefully crafted series enhances almost every resource you own. Its 43,000-plus pages integrate with the rest of your library, giving you insightful, clear exegetical aids from 54 contributors. With both the ICC’s scholarship and Logos’ tools at your fingertips, you can navigate a wealth of powerful linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary, and theological resources—and channel them to meet your day-to-day needs.

Get timeless scholarship for a limited-time price

Trying to get the entire ICC in print is a nightmare. Buying individual volumes gets expensive, and most retailers don’t offer the set as a single product. What’s more, the series’ numerous revisions can leave you wondering if you even have the most current volumes. Logos gives you the most recent editions in one complete set, for around half the cost of buying them all in print—and, through the end of March, you can take another $500 off! Many Logos users have already taken advantage of this limited-time offer; you don’t want to miss out.

If you already own part of the ICC, this is a great time to get the rest of the series. Logos.com’s Dynamic Pricing automatically recognizes the volumes you own and lowers your price accordingly, so you only pay for the volumes that are new to you. Combine the coupon code with Dynamic Pricing and a payment plan, and you can own one of the most acclaimed commentary series of the century for an incredible price.

This commentary series has already stood the test of time. Years from now, the ICC will still be here, and people will still be drawing from its profound scholarship. This deal, though, won’t last.

Use your coupon code and Dynamic Pricing before March 31, and get your hands on these timeless commentaries for a limited-time price.

Get 20% Off the IVP Old Testament Studies Collection

ivp-old-testament-studies-collectionRight now, you can pre-order the 16-volume IVP Old Testament Studies Collection for 20% off!

Understand the grand story of the Old Testament

We often read the Old Testament in disjointed pieces, missing the dramatic, unified story of God’s work in early times. The Old Testament is full of emotion, relationships, and suspenseful, sweeping narrative—it’s the foundation on which the New Testament stands.

In this collection, such respected authors as Christopher J. H. Wright and Tremper Longman show you how to read the Old Testament and give you in-depth writings, reflections, and questions for further study. Sandra L. Richter helps you organize your approach to the Old Testament, John Sailhamer offers a key to understanding the Pentateuch, and John H. Walton enters into the debate on Genesis and origins.

Why people love these resources

Interpreting the Psalms: Issues and Approaches:

“For those who treasure, love, and pray the psalms, this book will be a sheer delight, and, if used in the classroom, it will offer up so much for lay people that they will . . .  say ‘Hallelujah!’”
Reed Lessing, Concordia Journal

The Epic of Eden: A Christian Entry into the Old Testament:

“Second only to my visiting Israel is The Epic of Eden in bringing the words of the Bible to life for me, at least as regards our watered-down understanding of the immensely important biblical and historical concepts of covenant and redemption. . . .  For anyone who needs to clean their Old Testament closet, The Epic of Eden is a wonderful organizational tool.”
—Peter M. Lopez, creator, BeautyOfTheBible.com

How to Read Genesis:

“[How to Read Genesis] is written in a way that allows any minister or teacher of the Word as well as any educated layperson to enter the world of contemporary Old Testament scholarship.”
Daniel R. Hyde, Calvin Theological Journal

What’s Next for the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary?

evangelical-exegetical-commentaryThe Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) is a digital-first commentary series written from an evangelical perspective that incorporates the latest in biblical scholarship. In addition to in-depth exegesis, each volume includes application and devotional suggestions, which will appeal to both students and pastors.

Since it was announced in 2010, seven EEC volumes have been released. If you’d like to test-drive those volumes and make sure they’re what you’re looking for, you can rent them for either a month or a year. You can also purchase them individually, but the best savings will always be on the whole set.

Recent volumes

The two most recent volumes in the EEC are Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs, by A. Boyd Luter, and Esther, by Anthony Tomasino. One Song of Songs reviewer wrote, “Do I recommend the commentary? Yes. Will I use it if I ever teach the book? Absolutely, it will be a first point of reference.”

Upcoming volumes

Since we’re still working on the EEC series, we often get asked, “When is the next volume coming out?” While we can’t give specific dates, here are three EEC volumes that are in the works:
