along this "historical interpretation" is Bruner's personal modern interpretation, which includes a lucid translation of the textual content, references to fresh scholarship, and his pastoral software of the Gospel to present-day event. Like Bruner's different paintings, this remark is wealthy in biblical insights, largely historic, and deeply theological.
here's what Eugene Peterson stated approximately Bruner's past paintings on Matthew: "This is the type of observation I such a lot wish -- a theological wrestling with Scripture. Frederick Dale Bruner grapples with the textual content not just as a technical exegete (although he does that rather well) yet as a church theologian, being concerned passionately approximately what those phrases let us know approximately God and ourselves. His Matthew observation is within the grand traditions of Augustine, Calvin, and Luther -- expansive and leisurely, loving the textual content, the folk in it, and the Christians who learn it." a similar may well good be acknowledged concerning the current John remark, which delivers to be one other precious source for pastors, lecturers, and laypeople alike.
