Missional and Messianic
Bible Commentary Series
This series is in three volumes. Vol. 1, Old Testament, Vol. II Gospels and Acts, Vol. III Epistles, NT Appendices, and Bibliography.
“This mission Commentary brings together, and digs widely and deeply, into what the Bible says about mission. The Scriptures address many issues that missionaries face—more than I ever realized. References to mission work appear in almost every biblical book. Ted brings them out through his experiences overseas and extensive research.” Marcia Sayre, retired Interserve Missionary (Middle East 34 plus years).
“Proffitt draws upon his experience as a Bible scholar and missionary in this unique commentary utilizing major traditional texts as well as Dead Sea Scrolls and rabbinic sources. Special attention is given to Messianic terminology and themes, such as ‘the BRANCH’ and ‘the WORD’, among many specific fulfillments of prophecy in Yeshua, Jesus of Nazareth.“
