More About John MacArthur

John MacArthur John MacArthur is pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as author, conference speaker, president of The Master's College and featured teacher with Grace to You, an international radio broadcast. His more than six dozen books have sold millions of copies worldwide and include more than two dozen volumes of The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series.

The son of Jack MacArthur and fifth cousin of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur,[8] John MacArthur attended Bob Jones University before transferring to Los Angeles Pacific College (now Azusa Pacific University). He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from Biola University's Talbot Theological Seminary, in La Mirada, California. He graduated with honors. From 1964 to 1966, he served as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church, in Burbank, California and, from 1966 to 1969, as a faculty representative for Talbot Theological Seminary. Then, in 1969, he became the third pastor in the then-short history of the nondenominational Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California.

His daily radio program, Grace to You, which is now broadcast throughout much of the world, began as an audio recording ministry to provide cassettes of his sermons to listeners. They were first broadcast in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1977.

In 1985, MacArthur became the president of The Master's College (formerly Los Angeles Baptist College), an accredited, four-year, liberal arts Christian college; and, in 1986, he founded The Master's Seminary. MacArthur also received an honorary doctorate from Talbot Theological Seminary[ and an honorary doctorate from Grace Graduate School.

Nearly 43 years after beginning in the pulpit of Grace Community, MacArthur completed one his own life goals of preaching through the entire New Testament on June 5, 2011, at the end of his projected target window, stated the previous January, to finish "some time in the summer."[1] During the same interview, MacArthur projected he would complete his commentary series within another five years, some 35 years after beginning.

Use Caution  Jan 15, 2008
Use caution with this study bible.

MacArthur tends to read into scripture what he wants and despite being a good teacher in many ways tends to use the Word sloppily at times. The example below is not to make a doctrinal point but rather show how he can (and sadly does) use sloppy exegesis and doctrinal bias to makes his points. Bear in mind that in the times of Jesus' earthly ministry, the most certain of peoples were known as Pharisees. Believe the Word but remebmer that the notes are just the opinions of a fallible man (as are all of us)

The 14th Chapter of 1 Corinthians is really tough on folks who believe that certain spiritual gifts are no longer available to the Church today.

In a note on 1 Corinthians 14:2-39 in the MacArthur Study Bible, John MacArthur states:

" Although it is not indicated consistently in some translations, the distinction between the singular tongue and the plural tongues is foundational to the proper interpretation of this chapter. Paul seems to use the singular to distinguish the counterfeit gift of pagan gibberish and the plural to indicate the genuine gift of a foreign language."

Well let's see. Let's substitute "pagan gibberish" for "a tongue" and "foreign languages" for "tongues" in 1 Cor 14.

I've used the ESV but similar results are obtained from other translations.
For the moment let's ignore 1 Cor 14:2. Verses 1 Cor 14:3 through 14:25 don't exactly support MacArthur's hypotheses but at least they don't refute it either.

Unfortunately, verses 26-28 show how ridiculous the artificial distinction MacArthur makes between singular and plural tongues really is.

26 What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, (pagan gibberish), or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 27 If any speak in (pagan gibberish), let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. 28 But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God.

OK, if MacArthur is right, these three verses have Paul giving instructions to the Corinthians on how to properly pray to false gods in an orderly fashion. Oh wait, even MacArthur realizes that this can't be and tries to explain it by stating in his note on 1 Cor 14:2 "The only exception is in vv. 27, 28 (see note there), where it refers to a single person speaking a single genuine language. no one understands him; ... in the spirit he speaks mysteries" Sadly he doesn't explain how, since the text says nothing of the sort, MacArthur knows that these verses are an exception, or how MacArthur knows it is referring to a single person speaking in a genuine language (after all MacArthur's whole *cough-cough* foundational *cough-cough* premise is that tongues singular = gibberish and tongues plural = foreign languages). Apparently the premise really is "tongues singular = gibberish and tongues plural = a foreign language except when it leads to a conclusion I (MacArthur) don't like".

So lets' look at 1 Cor 14:2.

In a note on 1 Corinthians 14:2 in the MacArthur Study Bible, John MacArthur states:

The spirit by which they spoke was not the Holy Spirit, but their own human spirit or some demon; and the mysteries they declared were the type associated with the pagan mystery religions, which was espoused to be the depths that only the initiated few were privileged to know and understand.

So does 1 Cor 14:2 really mean something along the lines of?

For one who speaks in pagan gibberish speaks not to men but to a god; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries of the type associated with the pagan mystery religions by his own human spirit or some demon.

In the same note on 1 Corinthians 14:2 in the MacArthur Study Bible, John MacArthur states:

he who speaks in a tongue . . . does not speak to men but to God. This is better translated, "to a god." The Gr. text has no definite article (see similar translation in Acts 17:23, "an unknown god"). Their gibberish was worship of pagan deities. . ."

In this note, John MacArthur uses the same rationale as Jehovah's Witnesses use on John 1:1 (" . . . and the Word was God") - JWs claim that this is better translated, "and the Word was a god" since the Gr. text has no definite article . If this doesn't make you wonder a bit about John MacArthur's hermeneutical skills, then do this . . Locate a single English translation that translates 1 Cor 14:2 the way MacArthur does. Good luck, none of them do.

Oh, and speaking of a lack of definite articles, spirit (pneuma) lacks one as well so translators insert "his" or "the" in front of spirit in English translations. Why doesn't MacArthur mention this? Well perhaps because a legitimate translation is "in the Spirit" with spirit capitalized because the reference actually refers to the Holy Spirit. This happens to be the choice the translators of the English Standard Version made. As Cessesstionist, Reformed, Calvinistic, and Non-Charismatic/Pentecostal as most of them seem to be, they treated the text honestly and did not put a denominational bias on their work.

14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. (ESV)

Consider what that means. And read Romans 8:26.

Or would you prefer the IMHO inaccurate and frankly odd way John MacArthur might have you read it. They can't both be correct can they?

14:2 For one who speaks in pagan gibberish speaks not to men but to a god; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries of the type associated with the pagan mystery religions by his own human spirit or some demon.

Macarthur study bible  Sep 7, 2007
The book was in excellant condition and is a great source of additional resources for study on the scripture verses.
Outstanding, Comprehensive Study Bible  May 21, 2007
John Macarthur is truly an anointed teacher of the Bible. I believe he has the spiritual gift of teaching, and this is probably one of his greatest works, out of the very many that he has done. While there are other great teachers, I've noticed that John MacArthur is very clear and is incredibly truthful, and it is undeniable that God works through him.

To own this Bible is a blessing from God. I'm sure.
