He discusses the theology of the general letters, giving special consideration to the era of promise in Hebrew Scriptures, the era of fulfillment as underscored in the general letters, and how the theology of each letter contributes to the overall canon of Scripture. This practical guide includes Bateman’s nine steps to move from interpretation to communication, and examples of how to use them.
