Often, in my sermon prep work during the week, I write out devotional reflections on the text before I compose the sermon itself. I thought I might start including those reflections here on this blog, as a resource to anyone who might find them useful. It's not a scholarly or exegetical commentary, but rather more in the tradition of the devotional commentaries of the Puritans (Matthew Henry being an outstanding example). Here you'll find a list of links to commentary articles on all the passages I've covered since I began posting these reflections to this blog.
Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.
