Unfolded Plan of God J.W. McGarvey


This thorough commentary is arranged to account for the life of Jesus Christ: we begin with his years prior to entering the ministry, continue through his time spent with John the Baptist and preaching for three passovers, and concluding with Christ’s death and resurrection. The major sermons and events depicted in the Gospels receive subtitles, that the reader may follow the narrative progress and easily reference the corresponding scripture. Being as this is a classic narrative, the authors use the King James Version of the Bible.

In each part, the four books of the Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – are referenced according to the letters A, B, C and D. Variations upon the readings are contained within braces – { } – that readers may gain great insight both into the story of Christ and the context of the Biblical era. The exact layout and mechanisms of the book are intensively explained in the introductory part, so that students may comprehend this book’s purview precisely.

As well as the unique method of sequential arrangement, this text elaborates on much of the terminology and references included in the Four Gospels. Readers can derive insight and clarity from the bracketed notes explaining the more obscure words, locations and names mentioned in the scriptural passages. Usually these notes are brief, numbering but a few words; however when explanation is demanded, the authors impart it.

First published in the early 20th century, this text combines the knowledge and study of two theologians and educators: J. W. McGarvey and Philip Y. Pendleton. Both bring decades of professional study and experience to this work, which gained popularity among preachers, Sunday Schools, and members of the laity desiring a deeper understanding of the events of the Gospels.
