The Message of Ephesians

InterVarsity Press
Free sample

Millions have caught Karl Marx's vision of a New Man and a New Society. "Paul presents a greater vision still," writes John Stott. In his letter to the Ephesians the apostle "sees the human predicament as something even deeper than the injustice of the economic structure and so propounds a yet more radical solution. He writes of nothing less than a 'new creation.'" John Stott expounds Paul's theme of uniting all things in Christ by uniting his church and breaking down all that seperates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, master from slave. A book for all who want to build the church into the new society God has planned it to be.

About the author

John R. W. Stott (1921-2011) has been known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain, the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974). His many books have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. Stott's best-known work, Basic Christianity, has sold two million copies and has been translated into more than 60 languages. Other titles include The Cross of Christ, Understanding the Bible, The Contemporary Christian, Evangelical Truth, Issues Facing Christians Today, The Incomparable Christ, Why I Am a Christian and Through the Bible Through the Year, a daily devotional. He has also written eight volumes in The Bible Speaks Today series of New Testament expositions. Whether in the West or in the Two-Thirds World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. Stott was honored by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" and was named in the Queen s New Years Honours list as Commander of the Order of the British Empire. In 1969, Stott founded the Langham Trust to fund scholarships for young evangelical leaders from the Majority World. He then founded the Evangelical Literature Trust, which provided books for students, pastors and theological libraries in the Majority World. These two trusts continued as independent charities until 2001, when they were joined as a single charity: the Langham Partnership. Langham's vision continues today to see churches in the Majority World equipped for mission and growing to maturity in Christ through nurturing national movements for biblical preaching, fostering the creation and distribution of evangelical literature, and enhancing evangelical theological education.

. . . undertaken to provide earnest students of the New Testament with an exposition that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship and at the same time loyal to the Scriptures as the infallible Word of God. This statement reflects the underlying purpose of The New International Commentary on the New Testament. Begun in the late 1940s by an international team of New Testament scholars, the NICNT series has become recognized by pastors, students, and scholars alike as a critical yet orthodox commentary marked by solid biblical scholarship within the evangelical Protestant tradition.

While based on a thorough study of the Greek text, the commentary introductions and expositions contain a minimum of Greek references. The NICNT authors evaluate significant textual problems and take into account the most important exegetical literature. More technical aspects — such as grammatical, textual, and historical problems — are dealt with in footnotes, special notes, and appendixes.

Under the general editorship of three outstanding New Testament scholars — first Ned Stonehouse (Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia), then F. F. Bruce (University of Manchester, England), and now Gordon D. Fee (Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia) — the NICNT series has continued to develop over the years. In order to keep the commentary new and conversant with contemporary scholarship, the NICNT volumes have been — and will be — revised or replaced as necessary.

The newer NICNT volumes in particular take into account the role of recent rhetorical and sociological inquiry in elucidating the meaning of the text, and they also exhibit concern for the theology and application of the text. As the NICNT series is ever brought up to date, it will continue to find ongoing usefulness as an established guide to the New Testament text.

Dağdaki Vaazın Mesajı

John R. W. Stott “İsa’nın öğrencileri farklı olmalı, hem nominal kiliseden hem de seküler dünyadan, hem dindar hem de dinsiz olandan farklı olmalı” der. Dağdaki Vaaz, Hristiyan karşı-kültürünün Yeni Antlaşma’daki  tam açıklamasıdır. Burada Hristiyan’ın değerler sistemi, ahlaki standartları, iman bağlılığı, paraya, hırsa, yaşam  tarzına ve ilişkiler ağına karşı tavrı bulunur. Bunların tümü Hristiyan olmayan dünyanınkilerden farklıdır. Ve bu Hristiyan karşı-kültürü Tanrı’nın egemenliğinin yaşamıdır, aslında tamamen insani bir yaşam olmakla birlikte ilahi egemenliğin altında yaşanır.

John R. W. Stott Dağdaki Vaaz üzerinde yaptığı bu dikkatli incelemede Kutsal Kitap metinlerini açıklayıp yorumlar ve günümüz yaşamıyla ilişkilendirir. Yazar, her şeyin ötesinde Mesih’in bu vaazda tekrar, ve bu defa modern dünyaya konuşmasına izin vermek istediğini söyler.

John R. W. Stott Kutsal Kitap yorumlayıcısı, konferans konuşmacısı ve yazar olarak dünya çapında hizmet etmektedir. Diğer kitapları arasında en çok satanlar listesine girmiş Hristiyanlığın Özü bulunur. 1975 yılında Londra’daki All Souls Kilisesi’nin Emeritus Rektörü olmuştur.
