Proclamation from prophecy and pattern : Lucan Old Testament Christology by Darrell L Bock( )

27 editions published between 1982 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the context of the current resurgence of scholarly interest in Luke's writings, this book is a timely contribution to the study of Luke's insight into the person of Jesus. Using redaction-critical means, the author assesses afresh Luke's use of the Old Testament in the service of his christology. He finds that Luke is concrned not so much with a 'proof of prophecy' as with a 'proclamation' that draws both upon prophecies and upon patterns. This proclamation as it is developed in Luke-Acts serves to turn the reader's attention from seeing Jesus as Messiah to seeing him eventually as Lord."--

In this two-volume set on the Gospel of Luke, Darrell L. Bock offers students of the New Testament a substantive yet highly accessible commentary.

Bock's two volumes on the Gospel of Luke are the inaugural volumes of the acclaimed BECNT series. As with all BECNT volumes, Luke features the author's own translation of the Greek text, detailed interaction with the original text, and a user-friendly design. This informative, balanced commentary also includes extensive introductory notes. It admirably achieves the dual aims of the series--academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility--making it a useful tool for students, professors, and pastors
Truth in a culture of doubt : engaging skeptical challenges of the Bible by Andreas J Köstenberger( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too often Christians, and even Christian leaders, don't know how to deal with skeptical challenges of the Bible and the Christian faith. Few churches address the historical questions about the Bible and the theological questions concerning the God who, believers claim, has inspired the Bible. Too often Christian scholarship has been kept at arm's length and even viewed with suspicion by the church. Speaking and writing in this kind of environment, Bart Ehrman--professor at UNC-Chapel Hill and author of four New York Times bestsellers--has found a captive audience. Ehrman's popularity is due in large part to the fact that he is talking about things most people never learned about in church. Some have long given up on Christianity, and Ehrman is only reinforcing their decision to depart from their Christian upbringing. Others are trying to reconcile their faith with rational arguments and find Ehrman's books both interesting and disturbing if not appealing. Truth in a Culture of Doubt takes a closer look at the key arguments skeptical scholars such as Ehrman keep repeating in radio interviews, debates, and in his their popular writings. If you are looking for insightful responses to critical arguments from a biblical perspective, easily accessible and thoughtfully presented, this book is for you. This is the first book to provide a comprehensive response to Ehrman's popular works. It is presented in such a way that readers can either read straight through the book or use it as a reference when particular questions arise. Responding to skeptical scholars such as Ehrman, Truth in a Culture of Doubt takes readers on a journey to explain topics such as the Bible's origins, the copying of the Bible, alleged contradictions in Scripture, and the relationship between God and evil. Written for all serious students of Scripture, this book will enable you to know how to respond to a wide variety of critical arguments raised against the reliability of Scripture and the truthfulness of Christianity. - Publisher
Ephesians : an introduction and commentary by Darrell L Bock( )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The missing Gospels : unearthing the truth behind alternative Christianities by Darrell L Bock( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is Jesus who you think he is? Perhaps you've heard the recent buzz about "alternative Christianities" and "new gospels." Speculations have shown up in magazines, documentaries, popular fiction, and even on the big screen. Much of the controversy stems from a library of ancient texts found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. The Missing Gospels explores these archaeological finds and addresses a "new school" of thought that believes they should radically alter traditional views of Jesus and early Christianity. Darrell L. Bock takes you on a tour of the new claims as well as the controversial writings, examining their origins and comparing them with traditional sources. The Missing Gospels will help you understand the messages of all of these writings so you can form your own opinion. - Publisher

En defensa de la verdad : fe certera en un mundo confuso by Andreas J Köstenberger( )

En una entrevista de la revista "Christianity Today" realizada en 2012, Ed Stetzer reveló que, según una investigación de LifeWay entre adultos jóvenes que habían concurrido regularmente a la iglesia durante al menos un año en la escuela secundaria, el 70% dejó de concurrir regularmente durante al menos un año entre los 18 y 22 años de edad. Sin embargo, el 35% había vuelto a concurrir dos veces al mes o más para cuando fueron encuestados en el estudio. Eso significa que aproximadamente 4 de cada 10 jóvenes se van de la iglesia y NUNCA REGRESAN. Esta es la forma en que expertos de primera fila

Mark by Darrell L Bock( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the Gospel of Mark, now widely considered the first recorded treatment of Jesus. Darrell Bock explains how this text, once the least-used gospel, came to be regarded as the starting point for understanding Jesus. Drawing together previous arguments and discussion in a constructive summary, he traces the significance of Mark and addresses key features such as its cultural and historical background, its narrative flow, and the role of Greek in supplying meaning. This commentary highlights the issues Mark's gospel raises and develops Mark's message surrounding Jesus' claims of kingdom authority and salvation, the call to disciples to follow him, and the preparation of those disciples to face suffering in light of their choice. Mark will be a valuable resource for students, teachers, and pastors alike
Dethroning Jesus : exposing popular culture's quest to unseat the biblical Christ by Darrell L Bock( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darrell Bock teams with Daniel Wallace to help lay readers separate fact from fiction and help from hype in the recent best-selling Jesus books and television specials. There is a quest going on. It's the quest to reduce Jesus to a mythic legend or to nothing more than a mere man. Scholars such as Elaine Pagels and James Tabor are using such recent discoveries as the Gospel of Judas and the Gospel of Thomas to argue that the Christ of Christianity is a contrived figure and that a different Christ-one human and not divine-is the "true" Christ. In his trademark easy-to-understand style Darrell Bock takes on these attempts to redefine Jesus in a convincing, winsome way that will help readers understand that the orthodox understanding of Christ and his divinity is as trustworthy and sure as it ever was
