Overview

Does New Testament theology rightly deal with the documents of the New Testament or with something outside the text, such as the unfolding of early Christian religion, the events of salvation history, the historical Jesus in particular, or an understanding of human existence? Is New Testament theology a strictly historical project, a dialectical interaction between historical interpretation and hermeneutical concerns or a solely hermeneutical program? This volume by a seasoned biblical scholar not only describes how New Testament theology has been done but provides critiques of the major approaches in the twentieth century as well as his own proposal.

Author Biography: Dan O. Via is Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Duke Divinity School (Durham, North Carolina). He is author of several books from Fortress Press, including The Ethics of Mark's Gospel (1985), Kerygma and Comedy in the New Testament (1975), and Parables (1967).
