Overview

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 or not 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. Contributors include:

David L. Baker
G. K. Beale
C. H. Dodd
Francis Foulkes
R. T. France
Scott J. Hafemann
Morna D. Hooker
G. P. Hugenberger
Walter C. Kaiser Jr.
Barnabas Lindars
Richard N. Longenecker
I. Howard Marshall
S. V. McCasland
Richard T. Mead

Philip Barton Payne

Albert C. Sundberg Jr.

"[Beale] has deliberately chosen articles from a variety of viewpoints, so that articles by authors as diverse as Roger Nicole, Barnabas Lindars, C. H. Dodd, Howard Marshall, and Albert Sundberg are found in the same collection. . . . The collection is well-chosen, and all interested in this area of biblical study will be grateful to have such a useful tool."--Allan M. Harman, Reformed Theological Review
