Isaiah in the New Testament brings together a set of specially commissioned studies by authors who are experts in their field. Beginning with an introductory chapter on the use of Isaiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Second Temple literature, contributors go on to discuss each of the New Testament books that contain quotations from Isaiah: Matthew, Mark, (Q), Luke-Acts, John, Romans and Galatians, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Hebrews, 1 Peter and Revelation. Together they provide an overview of the status, role and function of Isaiah in the first century, considering the Greek and Hebrew manuscript traditions and offering insights into the various hermeneutical stances of the New Testament authors and the development of New Testament theology. The volume includes contributions from Darrell Hannah, Morna Hooker, Christopher Tuckett, Richard Beaton, Bart Koet, Catrin Williams, J. Ross Wagner, Florian Wilk, Cecil McCullough, Steve Moyise and David Mathewson.
This fine collection of essays on the use of Isaiah in early Judaism, Q, and relevant New Testament writings is clear, well balanced, and well informed. Each contributor not only provides an overview of the role of Isaiah in its new context, but examines how individual quotations and / or allusions contribute to the broader theological themes in early Jewish and Christian tradition....an excellent way into the study of early Jewish and Christian hermeneutics for university and seminary students. Clergy and educated lay persons...will also enrich their understanding of the New Testament and its portrayals of Jesus.
—Thomas R. Hatina, Theology
This volume illustrates both the promise and the challenges of the critical approach in question....these studies provide a comprehensive introduction to the Rezeptionsgeschichte of the book of Isaiah in early Christian texts. The footnotes offer a wealth of references to further secondary literature....it is immensely helpful to have such a focused compendium delineating the influence of a particular biblical text on the thinking of the early church.
—Michael P. Knowles, RBL
