Click for discussion of the value of Inductive Study

Genesis 1-2 - Part 1 - The Creation

This course explores creation from Genesis 1–2. You will learn how the world was created and how man came into being as you study both biblical and scientific accounts. 6 weeks, 6 lessons

Genesis 3-11 - Part 2 - The Fall, the Flood, and the Nations

Genesis 3–11 contains promises that unfold throughout Scripture. See God's plan for marriage, His relationship with His people, His judgment of the wicked, and His salvation of the righteous. (Not dependent on Genesis Part 1.)  10 weeks, 10 lessons

Genesis 11-25 - Part 3 - Becoming a Friend of the Faithful God

Learn principles and truths from the life of Abraham that will challenge you in your walk, and give you hope in your future. In the life of Abraham, we see God's choosing and the further unfolding of His redemptive plan. We learn more about God's character and His relationship with us in Abraham's example. Learn how man becomes righteous, how God keeps His promises, and how God protects those who are His. 6 weeks, 6 lessons (covers Genesis 12–25)

Genesis 24-36 - Part 4 - Wrestling with God

God renews the covenant promise to Abraham through the patriarchs Isaac and Jacob. Their lives become an integral part of the scarlet thread of redemption that God weaves through all of Scripture and the source of comfort for us. But two nations arise from Isaac, descendants of Jacob and Esau. Their struggle continues the story of God's choice. The lessons we learn for our lives from these men and their relationship to God can guide our steps of faith. 4 weeks, 4 lessons (covers Genesis 24–36)

Genesis 37-50 - Part 5 - Keeping Focus When Your Dreams are Shattered

Have you ever been falsely accused? Or maybe you have suffered unjustly for something you had no control over. The life of Joseph is a study on handling extreme situations. What would you be like if you were the ruler of the world? How would you act if you were literally a slave? Joseph had to deal with a life of ups and downs, and his God taught him how to handle them all. 4 weeks, 4 lessons (covers Genesis 37–50) See page 37 for chapter themes 1-36

THESE ARE ALL THUMBNAILS (SMALL PICTURES) AND IF YOU CLICK THEM THEY TAKE YOU TO A SITE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE LARGE IMAGE (I would recommend not clicking the thumbnails as it will take you to a site with annoying popups, etc)

HINT: From these pictures you can do a simple Google Image search and find the larger image. For example, click on "Eden" and you will note the picture under Genesis 2:4-25 entitled "Garden of Eden" and the artist's name is Jacob de Backer. So go to Google IMAGE search (not the general search) and in the search box (or address bar) type - "Garden of Eden" Jacob de Backer - This will retrieve the image in full size.

Adam Clarke
Commentary on Genesis

My comments on Clarke's commentary - "Clarke (1760-1832) was Methodist, Wesleyan, Arminian, (e.g., Clarke "suggested that although God can know all future events, He chooses not to know some events beforehand" Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible, page 808). He did not always interpret Scripture literally and so was amillennial (to quote Clarke on 1000 years - "I am satisfied that this period should not be taken literally" [see comment on Rev 20:4] - he interpreted Revelation as a Historicist) which led him to interpret the church as fulfilling many OT promises to Israel. He was influential in development of doctrine of Entire Sanctification (or "Christian perfection"). Clarke did affirm the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, but held a belief of "plenary dynamic inspiration" (idea of every thought inspired), thus falling short of "plenary verbal inspiration" (every single word inspired) (Bib. Sacra: Vol 125, p 163, 1968). In summary, a useful, respected commentary but as with all extra-Biblical resources you are advised to "Be a Berean!" Acts 17:11

C H Spurgeon adds that "Adam Clarke is the great annotator of our Wesleyan friends; and they have no reason to be ashamed of him, for he takes rank among the chief of expositors. His mind was evidently fascinated by the singularities of learning, and hence his commentary is rather too much of an old curiosity shop, but it is filled with valuable rarities, such as none but a great man could have collected. Like Gill, he is one-sided, only in the opposite direction to our friend the Baptist. The use of the two authors may help to preserve the balance of your judgments. If you consider Clarke wanting in unction, do not read him for savor but for criticism, and then you will not be disappointed. The author thought that lengthy reflections were rather for the preacher than the commentator, and hence it was not a part of his plan to write such observations as those which endear Matthew Henry to the million. If you have a copy of Adam Clarke, and exercise discretion in reading it, you will derive immense advantage from it, for frequently by a sort of side-light he brings out the meaning of the text in an astonishingly novel manner. I do not wonder that Adam Clarke still stands, notwithstanding his peculiarities, a prince among commentators. I do not find him so helpful as Gill, but still, from his side of the question, with which I have personally no sympathy, he is an important writer, and deserves to be studied by every reader of the Scriptures. He very judiciously says of Dr. Gill, “He was a very learned and good man, but has often lost sight of his better judgment in spiritualizing the text;” this is the very verdict which we pass upon himself, only altering the last sentence a word or two; “He has often lost sight of his better judgment in following learned singularities;” the monkey, instead of the serpent, tempting Eve, is a notable instance." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Genesis Recap:

Commentary
Critical and Explanatory
on the Whole Bible - Genesis
 Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset, David Brown
See Also the Unabridged Version

James Rosscup writes that "This is a helpful old set of 1863 for laypeople and pastors to have because it usually comments at least to some degree on problems. Though terse, it provides something good on almost any passage, phrase by phrase and is to some degree critical in nature. It is evangelical....Especially in its multi-volume form this is one of the old evangelical works that offers fairly solid though brief help on many verses" (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

C H Spurgeon writes "Of this I have a very high opinion. It is the joint work of Mr. Jamieson, A. R. Fausset, and Dr. David Brown. It is to some extent a compilation and condensation of other men’s thoughts, but it is sufficiently original to claim a place in every minister’s library; indeed it contains so great a variety of information that if a man had no other exposition he would find himself at no great loss if he possessed this and used it diligently" (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

James Rosscup writes that "The author holds to the Documentary Hypothesis but does not deny the uniqueness of Genesis or minimize the significance and authority of its message. He is careful in the Hebrew and deals with the problems, providing much to aid the expositor." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Expositor's Bible
Commentary
Book of Genesis
Marcus Dods

Warren Wiersbe one of the more esteemed modern evangelical commentators writes: 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.

Cyril J. Barber - This set, originally published in 1903, contains expositions by both conservative and liberal theologians. The most important works are by Dods (Genesis), Chadwick (Exodus and Mark), Kellogg (Leviticus), Blaikie (Joshua, I and II Samuel), Adeney (Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther), Maclaren (Psalms), Moule (Romans), Findlay (Galatians and Ephesians), Plummer (Pastoral Epistles and the Epistles of James and Jude), and Milligan (Revelation.)

Arno C. Gaebelein
Commentary on Genesis
From the Annotated Bible

James Rosscup writes that "This dispensationally oriented work is not verse-by-verse, but deals with the exposition on a broader scale, treating blocks of thought within the chapters. Cf. also Arno C. Gaebelein, Gaebelein’s Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible (I Volume, Neptune, NJ: Loizeaux, 1985), the Annotated Bible revised. The author was a popular evangelical Bible teacher of the first part of the century, much like H. A. Ironside in his diligent but broad, practical expositions of Bible books. Gaebelein was premillennial and dispensational, and editor for many years of Our Hope Magazine." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

John Gill
Commentary on Genesis

C H Spurgeon -- "Beyond all controversy, John Gill was one of the most able Hebraists of his day, and in other matters no mean proficient...His great work on the Holy Scriptures is greatly prized at the present day by the best authorities, which is conclusive evidence of its value, since the set of the current of theological thought is quite contrary to that of Dr. Gill. No one in these days is likely to be censured for his Arminianism, but most modern divines affect to sneer at anything a little too highly Calvinistic (see Calvinism): however, amid the decadence of his own rigid system, and the disrepute of even more moderate Calvinism, Gill’s laurels as an expositor are still green. His ultraism is discarded, but his learning is respected: the world and the church take leave to question his dogmatism, but they both bow before his erudition. Probably no man since Gill’s days has at all equaled him in the matter of Rabbinical learning. Say what you will about that lore, it has its value: of course, a man has to rake among perfect dunghills and dust-heaps, but there are a few jewels which the world could not afford to miss. Gill was a master cinder-sifter among the Targums, the Talmuds, the Mishnah, and the Gemara. Richly did he deserve the degree of which he said, “I never bought it, nor thought it, nor sought it.”

He was always at work; it is difficult to say when he slept, for he wrote 10,000 folio pages of theology. The portrait of him which belongs to this church, and hangs in my private vestry, and from which all the published portraits have been engraved, represents him after an interview with an Arminian gentleman, turning up his nose in a most expressive manner, as if he could not endure even the smell of free-will. In some such a vein he wrote his commentary. He hunts Arminianism throughout the whole of it. He is far from being so interesting and readable as Matthew Henry. He delivered his comments to his people from Sabbath to Sabbath, hence their peculiar mannerism. His frequent method of animadversion (a critical and usually censorious remark) is, “This text does not mean this,” nobody ever thought it did; “It does not mean that,” only two or three heretics ever imagined it did; and again it does not mean a third thing, or a fourth, or a fifth, or a sixth absurdity; but at last he thinks it does mean so-and-so, and tells you so in a methodical, sermon-like manner. This is an easy method, gentlemen, of filling up the time, if you are ever short of heads for a sermon. Show your people firstly, secondly, and thirdly, what the text does not mean, and then afterwards you can go back and show them what it does mean. It may be thought, however, that one such a teacher is enough, and that what was tolerated from a learned doctor would be scouted in a student fresh from college. For good, sound, massive, sober sense in commenting, who can excel Gill? Very seldom does he allow himself to be run away with by imagination, except now and then when he tries to open up a parable, and finds a meaning in every circumstance and minute detail; or when he falls upon a text which is not congenial with his creed, and hacks and hews terribly to bring the word of God into a more systematic shape. Gill is the Coryphaeus (the leader of the Greek chorus and thus the leader of any movement) of Hyper-Calvinism, but if his followers never went beyond their master, they would not go very far astray." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

James Rosscup adds that "Gill (1697–1771), a pastor of England, wrote these which are two-column pages, ca. 900–1,000 pages per volume, Originally they were 9 volumes, folio. He also wrote Body of Divinity, 3 volumes, and several other volumes. His commentary is evangelical, wrestles with texts, is often wordy and not to the point but with worthy things for the patient who follow the ponderous detail and fish out slowly what his interpretation of a text is. He feels the thousand years in Revelation 20 cannot begin until after the conversion of the Jews and the bringing in of the fullness of the Gentiles and destruction of all anti-Christian powers (volume 6, p. 1063) but in an amillennial sense of new heavens and new earth coming right after Christ’s second advent (pp1064–65), and the literal thousand years of binding at the same time. He feels the group that gathers against the holy city at the end of the thousand years is the resurrected wicked dead from the four quarters of the earth (i.e. from all the earth, etc. (1067)."  (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

W H Griffith-Thomas
Genesis: A Devotional Commentary
 London: Religious Tract Society - 1909
Recommended Read

James Rosscup rates this as the #1 devotional commentary on Genesis. Rosscup writes "the notes by W. H. Griffith-Thomas...will be a warm devotional help...This work is good in tracing the argument and showing connections between chapters. It is usually quite good devotionally and gives suggestions for meditation at the ends of the chapters. Applications are often usable. It is an excellent book to put into the hands of a layman who is not ready to grapple with the minutia of exegesis, but who is serious about his Bible study. It is also good for the preacher and teacher. Since it is out of print, readers must search in other places for it."

Keil & Delitzsch
Commentary on Genesis
See separate commentary
by Franz Delitzsch above

James Rosscup writes that "This is the best older, overall treatment of a critical nature on the Old Testament Hebrew text verse by verse and is a good standard work to buy. The student can buy parts or the whole of this series. Sometimes it is evangelical, at other times liberal ideas enter." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

C H Spurgeon -- "A work for the learned. It has received the highest commendations from competent scholars. But it is somewhat dull and formal." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

C H Spurgeon writes that this work is "not exactly a commentary, but what marvelous expositions you have there! You have reading more interesting than any novel that was ever written, and as instructive as the heaviest theology. The matter is quite attractive and fascinating, and yet so weighty, that the man who shall study those eight volumes thoroughly (Volume 1 = Genesis), will not fail to read his Bible intelligently and with growing interest."

The Pictorial Bible
Genesis
1854

C H Spurgeon writes that The Pictorial Bible is "A work of art as well as learning" adding that if one "cannot visit the Holy Land, it is well for you that there is a work like the Pictorial Bible, in which the notes of the most observant travelers are arranged under the texts which they illustrate. For the geography, zoology, botany, and manners and customs of Palestine, this will be your counselor and guide." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle) This resource is in one sense somewhat antiquated, but in another sense is timeless with well numerous done illustrations that make the text spring off the page when you read words like "balm of Gilead (pix)". It's pages beckon the reader to tarry a moment and peruse the interesting comments on subjects that might otherwise be quite foreign to readers of a western culture and mindset.

H C Leupold
Exposition of Genesis
1942
(Also in Pdf on another site)

James Rosscup notes that "In this very thorough, monumental work on Genesis, the author is conservative and uses the original Hebrew constantly. He considers carefully most major truths of the book and uses the grammatical-historical method. This is one of the most valuable works to have on Genesis. It came out originally in 1942." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Rosscup rates Leupold's commentary as the fifth best detailed exegetical commentary of all time on the book of Genesis. Be aware that Leupold is amillennial.

C H Mackintosh
Devotional Commentary
on Genesis

Mackintosh, a Plymouth Brethren, was a gifted teacher and writer. D L Moody said that "it was C. H. Mackintosh who had the greatest influence" upon his learning of the Word of God. One of his most respected works was Notes on the Pentateuch. Further biographical Note - Another format - Genesis  1-15 Genesis 16-50

 

James Rosscup has a relevant note on Mackintosh's work on the Pentateuch writing that "This is a one-volume edition of an old evangelical devotional work (Genesis to Deuteronomy, Notes on the Pentateuch). It has some value at times, especially for lay readers, yet is not to the point as much with pertinent material as W. H. Griffith-Thomas on the Pentateuch (also old) and John Sailhamer’s recent introductory survey." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Sermons on Genesis

James Rosscup writes that "This evangelical work is both homiletical and expository and is often very good homiletically but weaker otherwise. Helpful in discussing Bible characters, it is weak in prophecy at times because of allegorization. It is not really as valuable today as many other sets for the serious Bible student. The expositions are in the form of sermons.." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

The Book of Genesis - Commentary

"
The Book of Genesis and Part of the Book of Exodus is a thorough and excellent commentary on the first book of Moses, and the first twenty-five chapters of Exodus. A verse-by-verse examination of the Scripture, this volume by one of the 19th century’s best theologians is illuminating and comprehensive in its erudition of history, language, translation, and interpretation of Genesis and Exodus."

James Rosscup writes that "This was rated by Spurgeon, Commenting and Commentaries (past century) as then “the work on Genesis”. There are 72 chapters in lecture form. Candlish believes in a young earth but alas, the universal fatherhood of God. His work is often helpful in spite of some peculiarities, but not nearly as beneficial as many works since."  (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Genesis - Expositor's Bible Commentary (circa 1903) - Edited by William Robertson Nicoll

Warren Wiersbe one of the more esteemed modern evangelical commentators writes: 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.

Cyril J. Barber - This set, originally published in 1903, contains expositions by both conservative and liberal theologians. The most important works are by Dod (Genesis), Chadwick (Exodus and Mark), Kellogg (Leviticus), Blaikie (Joshua, I and II Samuel), Adeney (Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther), Maclaren (Psalms), Moule (Romans), Findlay (Galatians and Ephesians), Plummer (Pastoral Epistles and the Epistles of James and Jude), and Milligan (Revelation.)

notes that "The treatments of books within this evangelical set vary in importance. Generally, one finds a wealth of detailed commentary, background, and some critical and exegetical notes. Often, however, there is much excess verbiage that does not help particularly. On the other hand, it usually has something to assist the expositor on problems and is a good general set for pastors and serious lay people though it is old." (Ibid)

Genesis - A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Book of Genesis, with a new translation  (1867) Rosscup comments on Murphy's style in his commentary on Exodus "This old evangelical work of 591 pp. has some value at times for pastors, but so many works are superior. Murphy gives only his own comments, and only now and then any special help. The old writing style slows reading and takes longer to get to a point. Comments often point in a good direction but brevity hampers." (Ibid)

G Campbell Morgan
(1863–1948)
The Analyzed Bible - Genesis

James Rosscup writes that "Morgan was an evangelical master at surveying a book and giving its message within a brief compass. He introduces each book with a chart giving an analysis and synthesis. Revell put it out in a one-volume form in 1959..., and it is adequate to have the one-volume work, since Morgan is broad in his treatment anyway." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

As an aside G Campbell Morgan would read the book from which he planned to preach as many as 40 times till its related parts became clear in sections and paragraphs! Little wonder he was able to honestly entitle his work "The Analyzed Bible"!
