Topics I've Started

Whedon, Daniel cmtx

01 April 2020 - 08:13 PM

I have installed the Whedon cmtx on my win 10 system and on my android phone. On the phone it contains the verse notes but on the Win 10 system no verse notes. I have tried reinstalling from a new download but no change. Anyone else have this problem or have a suggestion of way to correct it? BTW the Win 10 file is 159,959 Kb installed.

 

 

PS  Not sure why or how but Whedon is now working after my morning bootup. Have to put it down to a gremlin in the system. Got to love Windows.

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

This NT commentary set is excellent and often recognized for it's devotional value — if you can get past his poor theology.

What do I mean?

His grasp of history is phenomenal. His discussion of the background of every NT passage is absolutely filled with interesting and applicable information. His use of Greek is also excellent, yet judicious. There is no need to know any Greek/Hebrew to understand his comments. Reading this commentary can help to unlock the literal, historical, grammatical meaning of the text.

However, his theology is - at best - inconsistent, and occasionally downright heretical. You can read this review of his theology if you’re interested.

BOTTOM LINE: this is an excellent historical-grammatical commentary; just skip his theological comments.
