Another important feature of CPH New Testament Commentary is its range of information. We have made every effort to supply our readers with important textual information in a simple way. In addition, the reader will be introduced to one of the original languages of the Bible by way of transliteration (English letters), Greek. This thorough information should benefit our readers in becoming more in-depth students of the fully inerrant, inspired Word of God, as well as being better qualified to defend to anyone who asks them for a reason for their hope.—1 Peter 3:15.

'We know that we are from God, but the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.' (1 John 5:19) Satan controls "the spirit," i.e., worldview, of every human alienated from God, by infecting their beliefs about life. This is why Paul in the same letter exhorted us to be 'renewed in the spirit of our mind.' (Eph. 4:23) Therefore, Christians are to avoid taking in Satanic "air," being influenced by its values, beliefs, thinking, speech and conduct, we must be renewing our mind day by day, discerning what is the will of God. (Rom. 12:2) Paul counseled, "Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth." (Col. 3:2) It is, for this reason, Marshall has penned the DAILY DEVOTIONAL: Daily Musings From the Old Testament, which can help us be protected against Satan's efforts at controlling our mind and heart.
For each day of the year, DAILY DEVOTIONAL provides a Daily Bible Reading and comments for consideration.

Readers benefit from the coherence a single commentator provides, finding faithful, understandable, and relevant resources for any passage from the entire Bible. Consistent elements include exploring God's character; seeing Christ in all Scripture; and identifying key doctrines, vital people, and touchstone Scripture passages. The MacArthur Bible Commentary offers pastors, Bible teachers, serious Bible readers, and anyone seeking to read and understand the Scriptures a way to focus their studies while still seeing the entire Bible's application to the Christian life.
