Grant’s volume on the Gospels begins with a lengthy introduction to the numerical structure of the New Testament and its role in revealing a new dispensation. Still—despite its differences—the New Testament bears striking similarities to the Old Testament, which are made more poignant by the relationship between the life of Christ and the history of Israel. Grant explains the internal structure of the Gospels and their coherence with one another, with a constant eye toward the significance of structures and symbols for interpretation.
