And it was not just men who were opposing the work. Constable contains only part of the content, and specifically comments for books, the first chapter of each book and for every 10th chapter (e.g. chapter 10, 20, etc.); all the notes for the book of Galatians are also included. All references to Greek are transliterated and for the most part appear in the footnotes of the commentary. Moo's commentary actually replaced Murray's in the NICNT series, although Murray remains in print because of its value.

The idea in John's mind is that the prayers of the saints avail to bring vengeance upon those who had maltreated them. The letter must have played a significant role in Paul's intellectual development (Murphy-O'Connor 209-10). SKENE (GSN4633)--SHECHINAH (compare the Hebrew verb, shakan, to dwell, HSN7931)--the connection in sound brought it about that men could not hear the one without thinking of the other. The priests and scribes react to this disturbance by plotting to destroy Jesus, just as the priests, prophets, and people lay hold of Jeremiah and cry out, �You shall die!� when he likewise predicts the destruction of the city and the Temple (26:8) (Miller, p. 274).

This passage insists that the coming of Christ is close at hand; it must be the Risen Christ who is speaking. It is very likely an adaptation of the rabbinic story of the tax-collector Bar-Majan, who sought to climb socially by inviting the respectable rich to a great feast. He is not dispensational and as such this will attract and at the same time detract from its use. Luke uses the law as a springboard for a retrospective parable accounting for the Roman defeat of Judea and Galilee, continuing his discussion from the preceding pericopae.

Secondly, in Romans 5:12-19, Paul compares Adam to Jesus, calling each of them ‘one man’. They frequently depicted their goddesses as crowned with the twelve signs of the zodiac and this also is in John's mind. The stone which shut Daniel into the lion's den was sealed (Dn.6:17), as was the stone with which the Jews sought to make the tomb of Jesus secure (Matt.27:66). Joshua 10: first, stone rolled away and kings emerge alive; second, kings die; third, kings are crucified until sundown.

Perhaps these men had married foreign women in order to make friends with people from other nations. An ideal resource for preachers which is reasonably priced. Because they were the *Jews� enemies, they did not want anyone to help the people in *Israel. v11-12 Then I came to Jerusalem. One hypothesis claims that John recorded many of the events that occurred before the arrest of John the Baptist, while the Synoptics all have Jesus’ ministry beginning only after the arrest.

Indeed, that was the moral of the original story, since the Levirate law laid down the rule for the Jews that a man inheriting his brother's cattle and lands should also cohabit with his deceased brother's wife or wives and raise a direct heir for his brother's property. But they were doing this in a way that was unfair to the poorer *Jews.
