The Good News according to Matthewis a brilliant, passage-by-passage investigation of the longest Gospel. By comparing Matthew with his sources--Mark, the Saying Source, early liturgies, and with parallels like Luke, earlier wisdom literature, and Qumran texts, Schweizer is able to isolate Matthew's distinctive view of Christ.
This commentary analyzes Luke's writings and gives specific explanations to enable readers to understand the special contributions Luke makes to the testimony of the New Testament. With the precision for which he is noted, Eduard Schweizer conveys the whole picture of what Jesus Christ means to the faith.
The earliest of the four Gospels, the book portrays Jesus as an enigmatic figure, struggling with enemies, his inner and external demons, and with his devoted but disconcerted disciples. Unlike other gospels, his parables are obscure, to be explained secretly to his followers. With an introduction by Nick Cave
Originally there were no such things as chapters or verses in the Holy Scriptures. Let us go back to how it was and how it should be. Let us read the Holy Scriptures easily without any interruption of numbers. "The chapter divisions commonly used today were developed by Stephen Langton, an Archbishop of Canterbury. Langton put the modern chapter divisions into place in around A.D. 1227. The Wycliffe English Bible of 1382 was the first Bible to use this chapter pattern. Since the Wycliffe Bible, nearly all Bible translations have followed Langton's chapter divisions. The Hebrew Old Testament was divided into verses by a Jewish rabbi by the name of Nathan in A.D. 1448. Robert Estienne, who was also known as Stephanus, was the first to divide the New Testament into standard numbered verses, in 1555. Stephanus essentially used Nathan's verse divisions for the Old Testament. Since that time, beginning with the Geneva Bible, the chapter and verse divisions employed by Stephanus have been accepted into nearly all the Bible versions." -Gotquestions.org-
