Colossians : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Markus Barth( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apostle Paul's letter to the Colossians offers a valuable and intimate glimpse into the life of a fledgling Christian community as it struggled to define Christian doctrine and theology. Paul was prompted to write to the Colossian assembly when he heard that "false teachers" had joined the congregation and were advocating dangerous, non-Christian practices. In an effort to appear superior, these heretical teachers were luring Christians to exercise asceticism, moral rigorism, and esoteric rituals--hallmarks of other "mystery" and pagan cults. In his passionate letter, Paul denounces these extreme and elitist practices and firmly defends a life in Christ. He proclaims that pure, simple worship of Christ alone is the most powerful statement of faith. In their astute and lucid commentary, eminent New Testament scholars Markus Barth and Helmut Blanke re-create the turbulent age of the birth of Christianity and examine the myriad of "outside" influences--from cold, rational Hellenistic philosophy to exclusive, ethereal Gnostic thought--that often threatened the evolution of Christian theology. Colossians not only provides a new and carefully balanced analysis of this pivotal New Testament text, but also chronicles the development of Christian thought as it gradually spread throughout the Roman Empire

The people of God by Markus Barth( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It makes no sense to do theological work in an ivory tower. The necessity of defining the concept 'people of God' may be illustrated by at least four elements of present-day experience: the baffling fate and often shocking politics of the State of Israel since the six-day war in 1967; the anti-Jewish elements which still shame many books written for the church, and many Christian declarations about Israel; the stuttering progress in matters of Jewish-Christian unity; and, finally, the need for a united and unequivocal testimony to Jesus Christ who is a Jew and the Son of God, and as such the saviour of the world. Markus Barth combines Pauline exegesis, church history and dogmatics in this provocative contribution to an important contemporary debate
The letter to Philemon : a new translation with notes and commentary by Markus Barth( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This commentary by Markus Barth and Helmut Blanke is unique for its exhaustive study of the ancient world at the time Philemon was written. The volume examines the institution of slavery in Paul's day, drawing from secular Greco-Roman sources and from other Christian writers of the time. The references to slavery found in Ephesians, Colossians, and 1 Timothy are also compared and contrasted with Paul's statements in Philemon. In addition, the verse-by-verse commentary focuses on important themes in Pauline theology, including love, faith and faithfulness, church unity, providence, free will, and human responsibility. Finally, Barth makes his exposition even more useful by surveying the history of the interpretation of Philemon, from the patristic age to modern liberation theologians." "The product of Markus Barth's lifelong research and completed by Helmut Blanke, this new volume in the Eerdmans Critical Commentary series will become the standard work on Philemon."--BOOK JACKET
