Right Doctrine from the Wrong Texts?: Essays on the Use of the Old Testament

Beale, G. K.

Pricing details

$36.00

If Paul and other New Testament authors were publishing today, would scholars accept their exegetical methods?

This collection of essays presents various perspectives concerning the hermeneutical issue of whether Jesus and the apostles quoted Old Testament texts with respect for their broader Old Testament context. Each of the contributors debates the interpretive understandings by which Old Testament texts are quoted and applied in the New Testament. Were New Testament teachers and authors simply children of rabbinic midrashic scholarship? Did they revere the original context of passages they quoted or fill them with different meaning? What presuppositions about the Old Testament guided their approaches?

As the contributors to this volume wrestle with Old Testament quotation in the New Testament, they offer views from across the theological spectrum to help biblical studies students work through the issues.

  • David L. Baker
  • G. K. Beale
  • C. H. Dodd
