Default Which Ruckman Commentaries?

Hi!!

I am fascinated by how much I am learning by listening to Dr. Ruckman's broadcasts and what sermons there are floating around online. Very interested in picking up a few of his commentaries and was wondering what the recommendations were from here to start with? George? Tony? Jassie? Anyone?

Matthew, Acts and Revelation were my thoughts right now...?


Thanks!!

Why not go for John, Romans and Paul's Church Epistles (Galatians - Colossians). The latter are all in one book. They are more practical for today than Matthew, Acts or Revelation

They have been a blessing to me.

Great ideas Luke, thanks!

Did you gain a lot of insight from his commentary on the church epistles? Does he pull references from all over Scripture as he does in his sermons?

Yup. There is also a lot of stuff I could do without, but I guess it is handy for some people. Sometimes he spends too much paper focusing on all the changes that other people make to the KJB, instead of what the KJB actually says.

Dr Ruckman is great to learn under but you must still be a Berean. I have found some things he said not to be totally true and something outright wrong to say

Bondservant:
I love Ruckman's Bible Believer's Commentary series, I have almost all of them. I think the one on Genesis is my favorite, it's both funny and highly instructive at the same time. And if you ever get the chance to see him in person, don't miss it.

I would recommend Dr. Ruckman's commentary, "The Kingdom of God vs The Kingdom of Heaven" for an overview of Bible doctrine and dispensations. Then follow up with Matthew, Acts and Hebrews.

But this will fill your head with dispensations and ages and times and stuff, but it won't do you any good for practical living. I think the living ought to come first, and then follow it up with some of the heavier things. That's why I suggested John, Romans and GEPC.

Ruckman's commentary on Genesis is full of doctrinal and practical teachings.
I have borrowed and read his commentary on Proverbs. I liked it!

(I don't really own one of his commentaries though; but I got his other books from some generous people. Thanks!)

I have all of Dr. Ruckman's commentaries also. So far, my favorite has been his commentary on Revelation. I really like reading his commentaries because he gives tons of cross references.
