1 Corinthians: Restoring a Congregation in Crisis by Dr. Yosef Koelner
2 Corinthians: Countering Messianic Madness by Dr. Jeffrey Seif
In this volume, you will find two separate commentaries from educated, experienced Messianic Jewish rabbis—each relying on his background. They speak to the weighty matters with which Paul, the Rabbi from Tarsus, was dealing—immorality, incest, marriage, congregational conflicts, and more, many of the same challenges we face today.
"This commentary on 1st and 2nd Corinthians will unravel some of the most misunderstood and confusing teachings in the church today." —Jonathan Bernis, CEO, Jewish Voice Ministries
"Coming from a traditional Jewish home, with studies in Hebrew, Koelner brings deep insight to believers hungry to understand God's word."—Ron Cantor, President of Shelanu TV, the only 24-7 Hebrew language TV channel sharing the message Yeshua
"This must-have commentary on 1st Corinthians clarifies the historical, cultural, and theological issues in the text."—Rabbi Alex Yalenga, Senior Rabbi Zambia Messianic Fellowship, author, international speaker
"Excellent insights into the Hebraic thinking of Paul and the Jewish background of the time in which it was written"—Chuck Cohen, Director, Intercessors for Israel, Jerusalem
"Seif's compendium strikes a rare balance between multi-cultural scholarship on the one hand and readability on the other!—Boyd Luter, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Research and Bible, The King's University
