Leithart READ 1 2 Kings Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible The continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bibl. Leithart has written a brilliant and accessible theological commentary that serves as a Christian reading of 1 2 Kings Each chapter usually corresponding to the chapter divisions in Scripture contains several evangelical and ecclesial reflections showing how Israel s history is ultimately all about the gospel and relevant for the church today While he is uick to point out shadows symbols types and allusions to the rest of Scripture and rightly so he still takes the meaning for the original audience into consideration In other words he s not simply throwing in Jesus jukes at the end of each chapterLeithart s reading of the OT through the lens of the NT is breath of fresh air His reflections on Christ and the gospel are worth the price of the book and make it a must read especially for those who find the historical books dry and boring Just make sure to have a Bible handy as you read The chapters don t have titles and there is no translation of the text provide which makes this book an excellent resource to have in your Logos library

Leithart READ 1 2 Kings Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible 1 and 2 Kings like each volume in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible is designed t. In the series preface RR Reno writes of the Brazos commentary series Theology has lost its competence in exegesis Scripture scholars function with minimal theological training Each decade finds new theories of preaching to cover the nakedness of seminary training that provides theology without exegesis and exegesis without theology This volume is an exception to that paradigm within biblical scholarship Peter Leithart has written a marvelous commentary on 1 2 KingsLeithart shows in manifold ways that there is much in Kings than we customarily understand He writes a Christian reading of 1 2 Kings must regard it not primarily as historical prophetic or sapiential but as evangelical It is Leithart s stress on the evangelical aspect of the books that sets this commentary apartAs anyone familiar with Leithart s exegetical method should expect this book is full of theological foundations that are explored later in Scripture Common themes emerge from earlier books in the Bible and Leithart shows how they are expanded in Kings and then reach their fulfillment in ChristFor example he writes of David and Omri More subtly the writer of Kings indicates that Omri is a David like king who initiates a counterfeit of the Davidic dynasty in the northern kingdom Virtually everything that is said about Omri here has some parallel in the life of David He also writes extensively of the parallels between ElijahElisha and JohnJesus We naturally understand and see the parallels between Elijah and John but Elisha and Jesus are natural parallels as wellHe writes Like John Elijah is a lone voice in the wilderness but Elisha is surrounded by disciples Jesus s ministry is a ministry of life giving miracles cleansing lepers Mark 140 45 raising dead sons and restoring them to their mothers Luke 711 17 relieving distress Similarly Elisha raises the dead 2 Kgs 418 37 provides a meal for one hundred men from twenty loaves of barley bread 442 44 cleanses a leper 2 Kgs 5 He says much of this as well noting other parallels with the gospelsUltimately Leithart s commentary succeeds because he takes biblical theology very seriously and considers all of Scripture when trying to understand 12 Kings The book is rich with it and it oozes out of the text Like everything else I ve read from Leithart the book is a pleasure to read and a wonderful resource for further study of not only 12 Kings but all of Scripture for his exegetical method should be applied to the rest of the Bible as well and he helps his readers to do this for themselvesThis is an indispensable commentary and should be on every pastor s bookshelf
