William Barclay Commentary
Daily Study Bible
Comment: Barclay often has
rich insights on Greek words and/or historical background. However, be
aware that he does hold some unorthodox beliefs, so be a Berean (Acts
17:11) and use this resource wisely.

Warren W. Wiersbe on the
Expositor's Bible - If you can locate the six-volume edition of the
Expositor’s Bible, buy it immediately! It takes up less space than
the original fifty-volume set, and not everything in the original
set is worth owning. Samuel H. Kellogg on Leviticus is a classic; so
is Alexander Maclaren on the Psalms and on Colossians.

Commentary on Colossians
Comments not strictly verse by verse
Excerpt on Col 3:5 to
give you a "feel" for Parker's style - "Then it is not all
contemplation, and sentiment and poetry! This life in Christ means
discipline. We have died with Christ that we might obtain the power
of Christ, and we are to use that power in destroying the works of
the flesh and the influence of the devil. By the power of Christ's
resurrection we have been brought to the use of strenuous,
penetrating, continual discipline. Discipline has to do for the body
what resurrection with Christ has done for the soul. We are raised
again with Christ that we may begin, continue, and complete a great
fight or sacrifice. We are to practice a large spiritual surgery. It
is in vain that we profess to have risen with Christ if the body is
to have its own way...."
DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries"
go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click for 3 part overview of how to do
Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the
Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would
guide us into all the truth (John 16:13).
Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any
commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers
cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training
and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that
we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the
most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some
commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I
have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I
recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that
with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from
evil (see note
