Bible History Old Testament (Vols 1-7) byAlfred Edersheim.
The Temple, Its Ministry And Services by Alfred Edersheim.
EDERSHEIM, ALFRED — Born March 7, 1825 (Vienna), died March 16, 1889 (Menton, France).
Alfred Edersheim was a Jewish convert to Christianity and a Biblical scholar. His personal knowledge of Jewish history, customs, traditions, and religious practices, puts him on par with Jewish historical information contained in John Gill's writings. That knowledge, and his love for Christ the Messiah, makes his writings of special interest.
Here is a tickler from his Introduction to Volume I of his "Bible History Old Testament," "The World Before The Flood, and The History of The Patriarchs" (Genesis).
"THAT the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” is also the “God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” and that “they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham,” — these are among the most precious truths of revelation. They show us not only the faithfulness of our God, and the greatness of our privileges, but also the marvelous wisdom of the plan of salvation, and its consistency throughout. . . The Old Testament could not be broken off from the New, and each considered as independent of the other. Nor yet could any part of the Old Testament be disjoined from the rest. The full meaning and beauty of each appears only in the harmony and unity of the whole. Thus they all form links of one unbroken chain, reaching from the beginning to the time when the Lord Jesus Christ came, for whom all previous history had prepared, to whom all the types pointed, and in whom all the promises are “Yea and Amen.” Then that which God had spoken to Abraham, more than two thousand years before, became a blessed reality, for “the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.”"
Edersheim's writings are here published based on Textual references, making them a valuable reference source in your Bible studies.

AnExposition Upon The First Eleven Chapters of Genesis byPhilip Henry.
Remains of The Rev Philip Henry by Philip Henry
The manuscript from which An Exposition Upon The First Eleven Chapters of Genesis is taken, is in the handwriting of Matthew Henry, and is dated in 1682, at which period he was about twenty years old. Those who are acquainted with the style of Philip Henry, will see the clearest traces of it in every page,—almost in every sentence.
In Matthew Henry's interesting life of his father, it is stated that the latter always expounded the portion of scripture which he read in his family, and made it a part of the employment of his children, while they were with him, to write those expositions. And it is added, that the collections thus formed by the children of that good man in their younger days, were afterwards of great use to them and their families.
There are very satisfactory reasons for believing that the manuscript from which this commentary is taken, forms one of the expositions of Philip Henry, written by his son under these circumstances.
Remains of The Rev Philip Henry contains a miscellaneous collection of his sayings, observations, counsels, and comforts out of his sermons, letters, and discourses.

Hawker's Bible Chapter Summaries and Reflections Vol 1-3 by Robert Hawker
There is a reason you've never heard of it. It is here compiled and published for the first time by Grace-ebooks.com.
Dr. Robert Hawker (1753-1827) delighted to speak of his Lord as “My most glorious Christ.” In his Poor Man’s Commentary on The Old and New Testament, “Christ and Him crucified” was emphatically the burden of his comments and the keynote of his ministry. Hawker, began his comments on each Bible chapter with a Summary of the chapter at hand, and concluded his verse by verse comments with Reflections on the same. This three volume set, entitled Robert Hawker’s Bible Chapter Summaries and Reflections omits all of the verse by verse comments and presents only his chapter summaries and reflections. Perhaps it could more appropriately be termed Hawker’s concise commentary on the entire Bible. While it is abbreviated, you will find it very thorough.

“Would it be possible to eulogize too much the incomparably sententious and suggestive folios of John Trapp? Since Mr. Dickinson has rendered them accessible, I trust most of you have bought them. Trapp will be most valuable to men of discernment, to thoughtful men, to men who only want a start in a line of thought, and are then able to run alone. Trapp excels in witty stories on the one hand, and learned allusions on the other. You will not thoroughly enjoy him unless you can turn to the original, and yet a mere dunce at classics will prize him.
“His writings remind me of himself: he was a pastor, hence his holy practical remarks; he was the head of a public school, and everywhere we see his profound scholarship; he was for some time amid the guns and drums of a parliamentary garrison, and he gossips and tells queer anecdotes like a man used to a soldier's life; yet withal, he comments as if he had been nothing else but a commentator all his days. Some of his remarks are far fetched, and like the far fetched rarities of Solomon's Tarshish, there is much gold and silver, but there are also apes and peacocks.
“His criticisms would some of them be the cause of amusement in these days of greater scholarship; but for all that, he who shall excel Trapp had need rise very early in the morning. Trapp is my especial companion and treasure; I can read him when I am too weary for anything else. Trapp is salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar, and all the other condiments. Put him on the table when you study, and when you have your dish ready, use him by way of spicing the whole thing. Yes, gentlemen, read Trapp certainly, and if you catch the infection of his consecrated humor, so much the better for your hearers.” (CHS) _______________________________________________ March 23, 2012

Annotations Upon The Holy Bible by Matthew Poole. Also commonly known as “Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Bible.” Matthew Poole’s commentaries, both hard print and electronic text, are one of the most popular and desired Bible study tools of all similar works. Sadly, his works for computer viewing and reference, have historically been guarded and exclusive to various “programed” libraries. Here added is the Old Testament portion of Poole’s commentary. With this update, the entire Bible commentary is now available in one PDF file. Previously it contained only the New Testament portion. If you have previously downloaded this work, you will want to delete it and download the current file. Please share (tell others) and enjoy as you please.
