You are about to download the eBook version of 'Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - The Book of 2nd Samuel' by Dr. Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset, and Dr. David Brown.
Instead of downloading Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible in its entirety, we have conveniently broken this monumental work into individual books. This allows you to save more free space on your device and makes for faster searches and quicker navigation. We sincerely hope these features will enhance your studies and maximize your reading experience. This exhaustive commentary (also known as the "JFB Commentary" taken from the last names of Jamieson, Fausset and Brown) contains over 3,000 pages of information, and covers nearly every verse in every book of the Bible. Originally published in 1871, Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible has earned a reputation that lasts to this day as being one of the best, most sought after and most highly regarded Bible Commentaries available anywhere.
All three of the authors of this Bible commentary were conservative in their theology, and, from first-hand pastoral experience, were familiar with the needs of the everyday believer. All served as pastors in England as well, and this practical ministry experience, combined with their extensive knowledge of the Bible and sound theological scholarship, is reflected in the easy-to-understand, down-to-earth, and spiritually challenging insights of the Jamieson, Fausset & Brown Commentary. Many of you may be familiar with Charles H. Spurgeon, the famous English expositor of Scripture and arguably the most famous preacher of the 19th century. Charles Spurgeon is quoted as saying of this commentary, "Of this commentary I have a very high opinion. It is the joint work of Dr. 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."
If the JFB Commentary was good enough for Charles H. Spurgeon, it's good enough for the rest of us! Many scripture scholars who own the best of the best in current Bible commentaries of the New and Old Testaments still find themselves reaching for 'Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible' time after time. This is due to not only the detail presented, but the heart with which it is presented. It is packed full of historical information as well as Greek/ Hebrew definitions and is excellent in all of the other additional information it provides. Despite it's age, it is a MUST have for ministers or ANYONE serious about God's Word. It will always be a timeless classic for all those who are seeking to enrich their lives with not only the intellectual information of God's Word, but also assisting in understanding HIM better and drawing them closer to HIM (that's really what it's all about anyway).
This Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible was authored nearly 150 years ago, yet like so few of its numerous peers, the JFB still remains as the preeminent work of its kind. Today's "modern" commentaries pale by comparison and will quickly fade into obscurity. If anything, it seems as though deep understanding of the Scriptures has given way to superficial milk-spew. The JFB remains the bedrock standard of Scriptural explanation. Concise, lucid, and without apology to denomination or creed, Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown have done more for the honest Bible student than nearly any other expounder before or since. To say we highly recommend the JFB couldn't be more of an understatement.
