J.W. McGarvey

e-Sword Version:
9.x - 10.x

In the 1800's, The London Times wrote, "In all probability, John W. McGarvey is the ripest Bible scholar on earth."  That is indeed high praise, and warranted as well.  McGarvey's original commentary on Acts is often used as the definitive textbook for Acts in many religious colleges across the nation.  His commentaries, in their e-Sword format, have continued to be downloaded over and over again at biblesupport.com.

This module contains a series of 16 articles of varying length written by J.W. McGarvey on the subject of elders, in one of which he shows that elders, pastors, bishops, and shepherds are all different names to refer to the same biblical office.

1. There is Such an Office?
2. Titles of the Office
3. The Titles Explained
4. Duties of the Office
5. How To Be Examples
6. How To Be Shepherds
7. How to Be Overseers
8. How to Withdraw the Disorderly
9. How to Be Teachers
10. Primitive Mode of Teaching
11. Qualifications for the Office
12. Intellectual Qualifications
13. Plurality of Elders
14. Selection and Appointment
15. Regular Meetings
16. Want of Time

What's New in Version 2.0 (See full changelog)

  • ToolTipped verse references, and corrected the annoying red-highlighted titles.

Thanks for uploading this but most scriptures are roman numeral and not usable in e-Sword. Strange bright red headers at the top of sections. Some formatting issues with this module.
Thank you for noting that. Your concerns have been addressed and corrected in the current version.
