Revelation Through Old Testament Eyes by Tremper Longman III

Revelation Through Old Testament Eyes: A Background and Application Commentary by Tremper Longman III is the third installment in Kregel Academic’s Through Old Testament Eyes (series editor: Andrew T. Le Peau). Kregel has previously published two commentaries on Mark and John (I reviewed John last summer and was OBSESSED with it). Books on Matthew and Galatians and Ephesians (2-in-1) are set to release.

I’m a huge fan of reading the New Testament while conferencing the Old Testament. It’s such an awesome and awe-inspiring way to read the Bible and see the foreshadowing and continuity, plus it helps you understand how the Jewish audience read the New Testament and understood things.

For many people, reading Revelation is scary and intimidating. The crazy part is, Revelation quotes so much of the previous books of the Bible that it really is not much new information. A couple years ago I read All Things New by Brian J. Tabb, it was a really great book about how Old Testament prophecies and patterns find their consummation in the present and future reign of Christ. That book was referenced in this commentary, and I think they pair wonderfully if you want to do an indepth study of Revelation (independent or as a group).

I’m a huge fan of this commentary series and can’t recommend it enough for laypeople, students, pastors, teachers, etc. It’s an a good series for anyone at any level to have on their shelf and visit often (especially with all this doom and gloom end times talk the past few years).

Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy! This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year.
