Ibson T. Beckwith on the Apocalypse of John

Ibson Beckwith’s substantial [794 page] introduction and commentary on the book of Revelation has been reprinted numerous times since it was first published in 1919, indicating that its content is still useful.

I have scanned the book and converted it to PDF so that it can be accessed more easily – this version is 15MB – far smaller than the 48MB version on archive.org.

Douglas Moo on Tradition and the Old Testament in Matthew 27:3-10

I started reading the second edition of Craig Blomberg’s excellent book The Historical Reliability of the Gospels two nights ago (I hope to write a review at some point). In the introduction he writes of how his book was a popularisation of The Gospel Perspectives series arising out of research carried out at Tyndale House in the 1980s.

This reminded me that several years ago I had been given permission to place on-line one essay from each volume in that series. At the time I had asked blog visitors to vote on which articles was to go on-line – see here to see what was chosen. I missed out volume 4 because it was a monograph and volume 3 because I couldn’t get access to a copy at the time. However my connections with Bible College libraries have improved greatly since then and a copy arrived from Oxford this morning. As I was scanning it the email permission came through from Douglas Moo, so I am finally able to complete a long-standing job.

Now on-line:

My thanks to Professor Moo for his kind permission. Professor Moo was unsure, given its age, the article would still be of interest to anyone. Please leave some feedback in the comments below that I can pass on to him.
