Overview

Fortress’ Old and New titles seek to read the Old Testament both as its originals readers might have and as early Christians might have following the death and resurrection of Christ. The volumes examine the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, in particular those texts most commonly alluded to or directly quoted. How did the Old Testament inform early believers’ understanding of the person and work of Christ and his work to unite both Jew and gentile? These studies explore possible answers to such questions.

In the Logos edition, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Reading the book of Psalms in its original context is the crucial prerequisite for reading its citation and use in later interpretation, including the New Testament writings, argues Ben Witherington III. Here he offers pastors, teachers, and students an accessible commentary to the Psalms, as well as a reasoned consideration of how they were heard and read in early Christianity. By reading “forward and backward,” Witherington advances the scholarly discussion of intertextuality and opens a new avenue for biblical theology.

Witherington’s new work on Psalms Old and New is a fresh breath to scholars-who-are-pastors and pastors-who-are-scholars. The first several introductory chapters and the work on Book 1 of the Psalter is a clear yet probing summary of ancient and modern scholarship. His work on Psalm 2 should be read by every pastor. I tell my students, if they want to memorize only one Psalm . . . forget about Psalm 23 and turn your attention to the power found in Psalm 2 and all its NT occurrences. Dr. Witherington throughout the volume addresses Psalms not principally according to their Genre-model (praise, lament, etc.) but rather appropriating the Psalms that serve the Church today in grasping an early Christian understanding of a Christological Psalter. The Christ-event changes everything.

—Rev. Dr. David F. Smith, Dean, Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesleyan University

Reading the book of Isaiah in its original context is the crucial prerequisite for reading its citation and use in later interpretation, including the New Testament writings, argues Ben Witherington III. Here he offers pastors, teachers, and students an accessible commentary to Isaiah, as well as a reasoned consideration of how Isaiah was heard and read in early Christianity. By reading “forward and backward” Witherington advances the scholarly discussion of intertextuality and opens a new avenue for biblical theology.
