Overview

Inner-biblical studies is a blossoming field. Within this growing specialization, Reverberations of the Exodus in Scripture is a unique and refreshing contribution. Unlike most studies in this area focusing either solely on how Old Testament passages interact with other Old Testament texts or on the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, this volume examines how a central and paradigmatic biblical event—the exodus from Egypt—resurfaces time and again in both testaments. Furthermore, the collaborative nature of this project has allowed specialists to construct each chapter. Readers of Reverberations of the Exodus in Scripture will gain a better understanding of the role of the exodus throughout the biblical canon and a deeper appreciation for its place in biblical theology.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Michael Fox has assembled a fine group of scholars who have offered fresh and illuminating essays on how the biblical authors used the story of the Exodus event. This examination of the Exodus motif in the Old and New Testaments will help you better understand its role throughout the canon of Scripture. Reverberations of the Exodus in Scripture makes a worthy contribution to scholarship in biblical theology."

—Terry L. Wilder, Professor and Wesley Harrison Chair of New Testament, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Texas



"Reverberations of the Exodus in Scripture puts the ideas of inner-biblical exegesis and allusion into practice by showing how the Exodus event impacts and becomes the foundation for other biblical books. Additionally, the reader of the book benefits from not just one, but numerous top-notch scholars who contribute to the discussion. Any reader who wishes to see the idea of letting Scripture interpret Scripture should pick up this volume!"

—N. Blake Hearson, Associate Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Missouri
