The Dordrecht Bible Commentary: Volume III: The Wisdom Literature: Ordered by the Synod of Dort 1618-1619 According to the Th. Haak Translation 1657 Commissioned by the Westminster Assembly 1645
For 400 years, the Dort Bible [Statenvertaling] has blessed the universal church with not only a tried and true translation but also a revered running commentary from the best and most godly pastor-theologians of the 17th Century Golden Age. This gift for God’s people, covering all of Scripture, was approved by both the Synod of Dordrecht 1618-1619 and the Westminster Assembly 1645.
This the third volume in the six-volume set, preserving the Early-Modern 17th Century text, consists of the Wisdom Literature (Job - Song of Solomon). In these documents, at the center and heart of the entire Bible, those who are thirsty are invited to drink deeply from the waters of salvation. To receive the embrace of the Christ—who is, who was and who is to come—who satisfies the believer’s deepest longings and sets the tone for faithful covenant living within the grand history of redemption.
Taking a break from the Rembrandt Gallery, this volume contains a second gallery entitled, “In Word and Worship,” depicting exhibits of Scripture and worship resources from the Reformation and the Further Reformation period. The rediscovery of the truths of God’s Word and the reforming of worship were always on the hearts and minds of churches of the Reformation.
The Dort Scholars were aware that one may well apprehend the facts of the covenant, its promises, stipulations and sanctions. It is possible to understand that all of Scripture is about Christ, but yet sense distance, if not detachment, from divine favor. Yes, the Wisdom Literature speaks to the heart of the glorious Bride of Christ for the gracious appropriation of new life in Covenant with God.
