Where applicable, he includes the Joseph Smith translation. He provides not only a summary to each section a collection of from one to many verses at a time that capture some theme or doctrinal conceptbut then treats each verse, bringing out from them the core doctrines.
I don’t understand why this collection is no longer in print. But you can locate used copies easily enough maybe that’s why it’s no longer in print.
I highly recommend this series of commentaries to read along with the New Testament. You will gain a greater knowledge and testimony of Jesus Christ. You will learn more about his apostles and his gospel. Wait a second, doesn’t that make him an exegete?
Doctrinal New Testament Commentary : Volumes by Bruce R. McConkie
Seriously, this series was great. There were several spots, scattered throughout the three volumes, where I do not think he was right. For example, while it testamdnt be true that we are given blessings here in this mortal world based on things we did in the pre-mortal life, I do not believe that those who are in less favorable positions in this Those scurrilous exegetes. For example, while it may be true that we are given blessings here in this mortal world based on commentayr we did in the pre-mortal life, I do not believe that those who are in less favorable positions in this world were born into roctrinal circumstances because of their failings in our prior existence.
Also, Elder McConkie passed up too many opportunities to emphasize the desperate need we all have for a Savior, and instead, focused almost exclusively on the necessity of personal righteousness. Otherwise, these volumes were very, very good. Elder McConkie explains, with clarity and enthusiasm, the doctrines of the gospel, which are wholly consistent throughout the New Testament, no matter who is writing.
Whether Paul was speaking to the very early Corinthian saints, or John was speaking late in the first century to the strong, yet small groups of persecuted saints, they preached the same message: Finished just in time. I can’t believe I read all three in one year. Really helped me a lot with my New Testament reading. I was really struck by how many times they mentioned temporal work being necessary for your salvation.

I think lots of people think that if they are spiritual enough, temporal things just aren’t important. I would say, read the New Testament and you will see it just ain’t true. Work is essential to our salvation! You are rewarded for being brice Futur Finished just in time. Future rewards will be based on our patient endurance mccomkie all things.
The priesthood is greater than any of its offices. No office adds any power, dignity, or authority to the priesthood. An elder has all the priesthood he needs to qualify for exaltation in the highest heaven of the celestial world When a seal is put upon the father and mother, it secures their posterity, so that they cannot be lost but will be saved by virtue of the covenant of their father and mother.
Thus if both parents and children have their calling and election made sure, none so involved shall be lost; all shall come forth to an inheritance of glory and exaltation in the kingdom of God.
Jan 24, Erin rated it liked it. This is my companion for this year’s study. I am sure I will learn, or re-learn much. I took the whole year to finish. I love to read Bruce R. Sometimes he is repetitive, but that is how we learn. I love having a companion to read side by side with my scriptures.
I learn so much more. Solid research and information.
I feel like the format could be updated for a more modern flow. It would make it easier to follow. Sometimes I was confused about who said what. But the version I borrowed from the library was a first edition.
Maybe they’ve done that already? Aug 25, Erika rated it it doctronal amazing.
