Edwards The Exegete

by Douglas A. Sweeney, Edwards The Exegete Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Edwards The Exegete book, Scholars have long recognized that Jonathan Edwards loved the Bible, but preoccupation with his roles in Western "public" life and letters has eclipsed the significance of his biblical exegesis. In Edwards the Exegete, Douglas A. Sweeney fills this lacuna, exploring Edwards' exegesis and its significance for Christian thought and intellectual history. As Sweeney shows, throughout Edwards' life the lion's share of his time was spent wrestling with the words of holy writ. After reconstructing Edwards' lost exegetical world and describing his place within it, Sweeney summarizes his four main approaches to the Bible-canonical, Christological, redemptive-historical, and pedagogical-and analyzes his work on selected biblical themes that illustrate these four approaches, focusing on material emblematic of Edwards' larger interests as a scholar. Sweeney compares Edwards' work to that of his most frequent interlocutors and places it in the context of the history of exegesis, challenging commonly held notions about the state of Christianity in the age of the Enlightenment. Edwards the Exegete offers a novel guide to the theologian's exegetical work, clearing a path that other specialists are sure to follow. Sweeney's significant reassessment of Edwards' place in the Enlightenment makes a major contribution to Edwards studies, eighteenth-century studies, the history of exegesis, the theological interpretation of Scripture, and homiletics.

The Federal Theology Of Jonathan Edwards

by Gilsun Ryu, The Federal Theology Of Jonathan Edwards Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Federal Theology Of Jonathan Edwards book, The Christ-centered exegesis of Jonathan Edwards Jonathan Edwards is remembered for his sermons and works of theology and philosophy--but he has been overlooked as an exegete. Gilsun Ryu's The Federal Theology of Jonathan Edwards explores how exegesis drove Edwards's focus on the headship of Christ as second Adam--and likewise formed a foundation for his broader theological reasoning and writing, especially on Christ and the covenants. Edwards's distinctive emphases on exegesis, redemptive history, and the harmony of Scripture distinguish him from his Reformed forebears. Ryu's study will help readers appreciate Edwards's contribution as an exegetically informed Reformed theologian.

Jonathan Edwards Exegesis Of Genesis

by Doug Landrum, Jonathan Edwards Exegesis Of Genesis Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jonathan Edwards Exegesis Of Genesis book, Jonathan Edwards represents one of the most popular figures in church history. The father of the First Great Awakening and the wellspring of American Puritan theology, Edwards’'s corpus has provoked immense scholarly study. Nevertheless, scholarship has only recently been directed to that subject that most captivated Edwards, his exegesis of Scripture. Jonathan Edwards’ Exegetical Reflections on Genesis seeks to remedy this paucity of research by exhaustively studying Edwards’'s utilization of Scripture in Genesis. Given scholarly debate concerning Edwards’s adherence to the Protestant literal sense, the author, Doug Landrum, measures Edwards’s use of typology, prophecy, metaphor, and natural language against a Puritan hermeneutic. This method grants the reader a comprehensive understanding of Edwards’'s hermeneutic of historical literature in Genesis and his placement within Puritan exegetical tradition.

Jonathan Edwards Federal Theology In Exegetical Perspective

by Gilsun Ryu, Jonathan Edwards Federal Theology In Exegetical Perspective Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jonathan Edwards Federal Theology In Exegetical Perspective book, This dissertation offers a reading of an overarching interpretive framework--the doctrinal harmony of the Bible--within which Jonathan Edwards attempted to understand the history of redemption. By examining similarities and differences between Edwards' federal theology and that of several sixteenth and seventeenth-century Reformed antecedents, it illuminates the distinctiveness of his thought in comparison with his Reformed forebears. Although Edwards shares with Reformed theologians such as Cocceius, Witsius, Mastricht, and Turretin the basic redemptive historical aspect of salvation, Edwards' emphasis on the redemptive historical theme as a necessary element of his biblical exegesis reflects a development of the federal theology. In probing Edwards' doctrine of the covenants of redemption, works, and grace, it becomes evident that Edwards' view of the history of redemption differs from that of Reformed orthodoxy. An example of this is found in his doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Edwards is bolder than the above representatives of Reformed orthodoxy in exploring the roles of the persons of the Trinity in the covenant of redemption. Edwards claims that Reformed orthodoxy's emphasis on only the Father and the Son as the agents of the covenant of redemption tends to weaken the role of the Holy Spirit. For Edwards, the Holy Spirit is not merely the deliverer of the benefit of the covenant of redemption, but is also the gift himself. The same is true for Edwards' doctrine of the covenant of works. While Edwards shares Reformed orthodoxy's understanding of the relationship between the law and the gospel, and of the Mosaic covenant as a new exhibition of the covenant of works, the difference between Edwards' and his Reformed forebears' understanding of the laws in the Mosaic covenant illumines Edwards' distinctive emphasis on the historical reality of salvation. Similarly, Edwards' focus on the historical perspective of salvation in his doctrine of the covenant of grace reveals that there is a similar but significant difference between the redemptive historical themes of Edwards and his Reformed forebears. This dissertation originates in direct response to the differences between Edwards and his predecessors mentioned above. While Edwards never wrote about his federal theology in a systematic manner, he drew his federal theology from exegetical principles which are based on his understanding of the Scriptural description of salvation. Edwards' understanding of the redemptive historical theme in the covenants of redemption, works, and grace consistently leads us to perceive Edwards' exegetical basis for his federal theology. Although the history of redemption functions as a significant motif for his federal theology, Edwards' use of various exegetical methods reveals that Edwards perceived a broader frame--the doctrinal harmony of the Bible--within which the redemptive historical theme lies. Edwards' key development with respect to redemptive history lies in the establishment of the consistent paradigm of the historical aspect of salvation through his insistence upon the doctrinal harmony of Scripture. Edwards' interpretive framework for understanding the history of redemption is examined in chapters exploring Edwards0́9 exegetical foundation for the covenants of redemption, works, and grace, and in a chapter on his ecclesiology. The analysis presented here strongly suggests that, as Edwards uses the doctrinal harmony of the Bible as the basis for his understanding of the history of redemption, Edwards appreciates the importance of biblical exegesis more than the systematic approaches of his Reformed forebears.

Notes On Scripture

by Jonathan Edwards, Notes On Scripture Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Notes On Scripture book, This is the first complete edition of the private biblical notebook that Jonathan Edwards compiled over a period of nearly thirty-five years. Edwards' "Notes on Scripture" confirms the centrality of the Bible in his thought and provides more balance to earlier depictions of his writings that emphasized the scientific and philosophical while overlooking the biblical dimension. In this critical edition the entries appear in the order in which Edwards wrote them, beginning with a short commentary on Genesis 2:10-14 that he penned in 1724, and ending with his last entry, Number 507 on the Book of Solomon's Song, written two years before his death. This volume provides direct access to one of America's most influential religious thinkers. Edwards' entries range across the entire scriptural canon and reveal his creativity in the interpretation of particular biblical texts and his fascination with typology. The notebook also documents Edwards' engagement with the intellectual currents of his day, in particular his response to the challenge associated with the Enlightenment critique of biblical revelation. Stephen J. Stein's introduction situates Edwards as an exegete in the larger tradition of biblical commentary and in the intellectual world of eighteenth-century Western thought.

The Gospel According To Luke

by James R. Edwards, The Gospel According To Luke Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Gospel According To Luke book, In keeping with the Pillar New Testament Commentary’s distinctive character, this volume by James R. Edwards on Luke gives special attention to the Third Gospel’s vocabulary and historical setting, its narrative purpose and unique themes, and its theological significance for the church and believers today. Though Luke is often thought to have a primarily Gentile focus, Edwards counterbalances that perspective by citing numerous evidences of Luke’s overarching interest in depicting Jesus as the fulfillment of God’s providential work in the history of Israel, and he even considers the possibility that Luke himself was a Jew. In several excursuses Edwards discusses particular topics, including Luke’s infancy narratives, the mission of Jesus as the way of salvation, and Luke’s depiction of the universal scope of the gospel. While fully conversant with all the latest scholarship, Edwards writes in a lively, fluent style that will commend this commentary to ministers, students, scholars, and many other serious Bible readers.

The Theology Of Jonathan Edwards

by Michael J. McClymond, The Theology Of Jonathan Edwards Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Theology Of Jonathan Edwards book, Winner of the 2013 Christianity Today Book Award for Theology/Ethics Scholars and laypersons alike regard Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) as North America's greatest theologian. The Theology of Jonathan Edwards is the most comprehensive survey of his theology yet produced and the first study to make full use of the recently-completed seventy-three-volume online edition of the Works of Jonathan Edwards. The book's forty-five chapters examine all major aspects of Edwards's thought and include in-depth discussions of the extensive secondary literature on Edwards as well as Edwards's own writings. Its opening chapters set out Edwards's historical and personal theological contexts. The next thirty chapters connect Edwards's theological loci in the temporally-ordered way in which he conceptualized the theological enterprise-beginning with the triune God in eternity with his angels to the history of redemption as an expression of God's inner reality ad extra, and then back to God in eschatological glory. The authors analyze such themes as aesthetics, metaphysics, typology, history of redemption, revival, and true virtue. They also take up such rarely-explored topics as Edwards's missiology, treatment of heaven and angels, sacramental thought, public theology, and views of non-Christian religions. Running throughout the volume are what the authors identify as five basic theological constituents: trinitarian communication, creaturely participation, necessitarian dispositionalism, divine priority, and harmonious constitutionalism. Later chapters trace his influence on and connections with later theologies and philosophies in America and Europe. The result is a multi-layered analysis that treats Edwards as a theologian for the twenty-first-century global Christian community, and a bridge between the Christian West and East, Protestantism and Catholicism, conservatism and liberalism, and charismatic and non-charismatic churches.

Before Jonathan Edwards

by Adriaan C. Neele, Before Jonathan Edwards Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Before Jonathan Edwards book, In Before Jonathan Edwards, Adriaan Neele seeks to balance the recent academic attention to the developments of intellectual history after Jonathan Edwards. Neele presents the first comprehensive study of Edwards's use of Reformed orthodox and Protestant scholastic primary sources in the context of the challenges of orthodoxy in his day. Despite the breadth of Edwards scholarship, his use of primary sources has been little analyzed. Yet, as Neele proves, Edwards's thinking on the importance of these primary sources has significant implications not only for the status of the New England theology of pre-Revolutionary America but also for our understanding of Edwards today. This volume locates Edwards's ideas in the context of the theological and philosophical currents of his day, as well as in the pre-modern exchange of books and information during the colonial period. The pre-Revolutionary status of theology and philosophy in the wake of the Enlightenment had many of the same problems we see in our theological education today with respect to the use and appropriation of classical theology in a 21st-century context. Ideas about the necessity of classical primary sources of Christianity in sustaining our theological education are once again becoming important, and Edwards offers many relevant insights. Edwards was not unique in his deployment of these primary sources; many New England pastors, including Cotton Mather (166301728), preached and wrote about the necessity of orthodox theology. Edwards's distinction came in his thinking about the issues set forth in these sources at a transitional moment in the history of Christian thought.

Jonathan Edwards S Bible

by Stephen R. C. Nichols, Jonathan Edwards S Bible Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jonathan Edwards S Bible book, New England colonial pastor and theologian Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) was well aware of the threat that Deist philosophy posed to the unity of the Bible as Christian Scriptures, yet remarkably, his own theology of the Bible has never before been examined. In the context of his entire corpus this study pays particular attention to the detailed notes Edwards left for "The Harmony of the Old and New Testament," a "great work" hitherto largely ignored by scholars. Following examination of his "Harmony" notes, a case study of salvation in the Old Testament challenges the current "dispositional" account of Edwards's soteriology and argues instead that the colonial Reformed theologian held there to be one object of saving faith in Old and New Testaments, namely, Christ.

Seeing Good Doing Evil

by Michael D. Russell, Seeing Good Doing Evil Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Seeing Good Doing Evil book, According to the Apostle Paul, what can be known about God--and by extension, about ethics--is plain to people, so we are "without excuse." Romans 1:18-21 teaches that we will be "without excuse" when God confronts us for whatever beliefs and actions seemed good to us on the day, but weren't. In our time, this notion has come to seem at least unpalatable, and more likely unbelievable. Michael D. Russell's book is an extended meditation on the possibilities in this Pauline statement and a concerted effort to enable us to understand and accept it. Situated in Reformed Protestant discussion of this matter, he offers some clarifying proposals. Maintaining all the while that whoever we are we are indeed without excuse, Michael proposes how to understand that conclusion without accepting some of the usual routes to it.
