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)!

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:

Get the Best Price on Treasured American Adventures

Among American literature’s greatest achievements is its longstanding marriage of high art and high adventure. Melville, Twain, Cooper, London—some of America’s greatest writers set their dramas against America’s spectacular rivers, seas, and tracts of wilderness.

These aren’t just important works of literature. They’re gripping adventure tales, long ago integrated into the American national consciousness.

And now you can get them in the single most useful, reader-friendly format they’ve ever appeared in: Logos.

Take 80% off the Select Works of Herman Melville

select-works-of-herman-melville“In the winter of 1851,” wrote Jorge Luis Borges, “Melville published Moby-Dick, the infinite novel that brought about his fame. Page by page, the story grows until it takes on the dimensions of the cosmos: at the beginning the reader might consider the subject to be the miserable life of whale harpooners; then, that the subject is the madness of Captain Ahab, bent on pursuing and destroying the white whale; finally, that the whale and Ahab and the pursuit which exhausts the oceans of the planet are symbols and mirrors of the universe.”

There are many “great American novels.” In scope, in ambition, Moby-Dick is perhaps the greatest.

Noet’s new Select Works of Herman Melville collection gives you not only Moby-Dick but also The Piazza Tales, Typee, Omoo, and The Confidence-Man, all important texts in their own right. For a just a little while, the collection is on Community Pricing for just $12—that’s 80% off!

Take 79% off the Select Works of Mark Twain

select-works-of-mark-twainMark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is Moby-Dick’s leading rival for the title of great American novel. Faulkner called Twain “the father of American literature.” Hemingway (on what else could he and Faulkner agree?) wrote that “All modern American literature comes from [Huckleberry Finn]. . . . the best book we’ve had.” Appleton’s magazine wrote that “[Twain] will be recognized as one of the most national of American authors, and one of the peculiar glories of American literature.” The Select Works of Mark Twain collection gives you not only Huckleberry Finn but also its predecessor, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and a series of enthralling travelogues and works of speculative fiction.

Take 60% off the Select Works of James Fenimore Cooper

select-works-of-james-fenimore-cooper

“[Cooper] is a poet; and if his creations should not be immortal, it will be the work of the perverse and incalculable accidents of time”
The New-York Review

Cooper’s series of Leatherstocking Tales novels, which detail the adventures of frontiersman Natty Bumppo, are in large part responsible for romanticizing the American wild; the wild, in turn, was a hugely important building block in America’s self-image. These books don’t just show you the frontier—in the American imagination, they helped constitute it.

Get these important works for 60% off: bid before the price goes up!

Take 56% off the Select Works of Jack London

select-works-of-jack-londonLondon’s famous adventures bring together philosophical speculation and gritty realism. The Call of the Wild and White Fang explore the relationship between civilization and wilderness; White Fang, in particular, is regarded as an allegorical account of London’s own transition from his troubled teenage years into middle-class adulthood. The cerebral Sea Wolf follows the adventures of a shipwrecked literary critic who’s taken in by an amoral but highly intelligent captain; it’s an oblique attempt to refute Nietzsche’s theory of the superman. The Iron Heel, arguably the first modern dsytopia, anticipated the twentieth and twenty-first centuries’ formal experimentation and even influenced Orwell; today, it seems very far ahead of its time.

Place your bid for 56% off!

Simple Language for Simple Truth: The Legacy of J. A. Broadus

Broadus

In the information age, it’s not often that we lose track of history’s most influential people. Archives, blogs, databases, and books direct us to those worth learning from. But sometimes powerful voices get lost in the noise. If you don’t already know about him, J. A. Broadus is one of those influential voices.

“It has been my fortune to hear Beecher and Phillips Brooks, Maclaren, Joseph Parker and Spurgeon, John Hall and Moody, John Clifford and David Lloyd George. At his best and in a congenial atmosphere Broadus was the equal of any man I have ever heard.”
A. T. Robertson, former professor, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

During his lifetime, John Albert Broadus was renowned for his passionate, persuasive preaching. To Broadus, every sermon had a purpose. He crafted every word to lead the listener to the plain truths of Scripture. He fervently studied the art of preaching, and took it upon himself to understand the techniques of persuasive public speaking. The result was a beautifully simple style, thanks to which his sermons and writings remain accessible today.
