Titus Commentary Notes
Gnomon of the New Testament
Short Pithy Comments
Index to Mt-Rev Chapter by Chapter

C H Spurgeon wrote that Bengel's NT commentary "is the Scholar's delight! Bengel condensed more matter into a line than can be extracted from pages of other writers."

F W Farrar writes that Bengel's "Gnomon is a mine of priceless gems. It contains sentence after sentence exquisitely terse and finished, and throbbing with spiritual light. Few writers have so admirably succeeded in expressing in a few words the inmost purpose of each of the Epistles. A generation crowded with writers whose theology abounded in mutual anathemas is yet redeemed from the charge of sterility which has produced such a theologian as Bengel. His work must continue to have its value so long as men can recognise the richest fruits of a noble intellect, a pure spirit, and a blameless life. "Lord Jesus, unto Thee I live, unto Thee I suffer, unto Thee I die; Thine I am, living or dying." These words were repeated to him in his last moments, and on hearing them he pointed with his right hand to his heart, and fell asleep in peace." (Amen!) (History of Interpretation: Eight Lectures Preached Before the University of Oxford in the Year 1885).

John Wesley said of Bengel "I know of no commentator on the Bible equal to Bengel" and referred to him as "The great light of the Christian world."

Conservative, Evangelical

SEARCH 33 CONSERVATIVE THEOLOGICAL JOURNALS (and literally 1000's of journal articles) - Annual $50 fee (click here) required to view the entire article but allows access to literally thousands of conservative articles! This resource is potentially incredibly useful for in depth study.
 

SEARCH TIPS:

<> Exact phrase search: Place double quotes around phrase to search for exact phrase. Note that search uses the stem of words in search box & searches for all forms (eg, "God's love" finds phrases with God, God's, godly.... love, loving, loves).

<> Search Limits: You can also use AND or NOT (Note: these limiting words MUST be in all caps). Eg, "remember me" retrieves about 60 hits. "remember me" AND Nehemiah retrieves 6 hits but they are related to Nehemiah (See Neh 5:19, 13:14, 22, 31). Try this search to see articles on Spirit in OT = old AND testament spirit
<> Proximity search. Eg, "Old Testament spirit"~10 = finds those 3 words within 10 words of each other. If that finds nothing, change to ~20 or ~30. That should help you look for some topic like "Ministry of the Holy Spirit in the OT"
<> Verse search: If you are looking for a specific verse, place the query in quotes (eg, "John 3:16").

Net Bible Notes
Brief Commentary Notes on Titus

Comment:  These are more technical notes on the New English Translation, but often yield some very useful insights. The NET Bible is synchronized with the NET Notes, Constable's Commentary, relevant articles on the Bible.org website and 10 parallel translations. Here are some basic instructions on how to use the free online NETBible Notes - First click this link (you may want to open in a new window to follow the instructions - Hold you pointer over this link and click your Right Mouse button to open menu - choose "Open in New Window"). First notice that at the top there a tab or box labeled "Matthew 1". Click the down arrow on the left side, select book and then the chapter of interest. The Scripture opens to that Book and Chapter and the NETBible Notes automatically synch with the Scripture. Note that instead of the NETBible notes you can select Constable's Notes which also automatically synch as you scroll down the NETBible Scriptures. Click on the Grk/Heb tab and hold your pointer over the Greek (or Hebrew) words to highlight the English word in the NETBible (or hold pointer over the English word to see the corresponding Greek/Hebrew word). The Articles tab also synchronizes with the NETBible and retrieves articles found at Bible.org that mention the NETBible verse you are studying (articles open in a new window). You can increase or decrease the font size by holding down your Control Key and scrolling your Mouse wheel up or down. Now double click on a word like "Abraham" in 1:2 and note that you have a choice to view one of several dictionary articles on Abraham. Notice also that when you click on Abraham, the Articles tab automatically looks up articles that contain the specific chapter/verse associated with the name you clicked (in this case the Articles tab synchs with Mt 1:2NET). The Names tab gives brief descriptions of names (persons and places) mentioned in the text (Interesting!)  Finally, click the "Parallel" tab to compare 10 different Bible translations! There is more but this should get you started!

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive 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 Hebrews 5:14).
