Overview

The Biblical Theology of the New Testament series consists of individual volumes covering the New Testament. Each volume is devoted to an indepth exploration of a given New Testament writing, or group of writings, within the context of the theology of the New Testament, and ultimately of the entire Bible. While each corpus requires an approach that is suitable for the writing(s) studied, all volumes include:

  • a survey of recent scholarship and of the state of research
  • a treatment of the relevant introductory issues
  • a thematic commentary following the narrative flow of the document(s)
  • a treatment of important individual themes
  • discussions of the relationship between a particular writing and the rest of the New Testament and the Bible

By providing in-depth studies of the diverse, yet complementary perspectives of the New Testament writings, the Biblical Theology of the New Testament series aims to make a significant contribution to the study of the major interrelated themes of Scripture in a holistic, context-sensitive, and spiritually nurturing manner. Each volume is written by a scholar who has written a major commentary or monograph on the corpus covered. The generous page allotment allows for an in-depth investigation. While coming from diverse academic backgrounds and institutional affiliations, the contributors share a commitment to an evangelical faith and a respect for the authority of Scripture. They also have in common a conviction that the canon of Scripture is ultimately unified, not contradictory.

  • Engages in the study of the biblical texts while giving careful consideration to the historical setting
  • Provides a survey of recent scholarship and of the state of research
  • Includes a thematic commentary following the narrative flow of the document and a treatment of important individual themes

A Theology of Mark’s Gospel: Good News about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God

This book is part of the new Zondervan New Testament Biblical Theology Series and covers major Markan themes and sets forth the distinctive contribution of Mark to the New Testament and the canon of Scripture.

A Theology of Mark’s Gospel is the fourth volume in the BTNT series. This landmark textbook, written by leading New Testament scholar David E. Garland, thoroughly explores the theology of Mark’s Gospel. It both covers major Markan themes and also sets forth the distinctive contribution of Mark to the New Testament and the canon of Scripture, providing readers with an in-depth and holistic grasp of Markan theology in the larger context of the Bible. This substantive, evangelical treatment of Markan theology makes an ideal college- or seminary-level text.

As usual, David Garland provides an insightful and well-researched reading into the biblical text. In this book, however, he offers an additional benefit: a model for how to write a helpful theology of a narrative work. By exploring Mark thematically and theologically, Garland provides a distinctively new contribution.

A Theology of James, Peter, and Jude: Living in the Light of the Coming King

  • Author: Peter H. Davids
  • Editor: Andreas Kostenbeger
  • Series: Biblical Theology of the New Testament (BTNT)
  • Publisher: Zondervan
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 352

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This third release in Zondervan’s Biblical Theology of the New Testament series offers a comprehensive exploration of the theology of James, 1-2 Peter, and Jude, including introductory issues and major themes, but also shows how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology.

In this volume, Peter Davids offers a comprehensive study of the General or Catholic Epistles of James, 1-2 Peter, and Jude, which are often insufficiently covered in more general New Testament introductions, theologies, and surveys. Before discussing a theology of each of the four letters, Davids first deals with their common aspects—their shared background in the Greco-Roman world and a similar Christology, view of the source of sin, and eschatology—thus justifying their being treated together. In the chapters that follow, Davids embarks upon a theological reading of each letter informed by its social-rhetorical understanding—what they meant in the context of their original cultural settings—including: a survey of recent scholarship, a discussion of relevant introductory issues, a thematic commentary, a treatment of important theological themes, and a discussion of the place of the letter in the biblical canon and its contribution to New Testament theology.

The Biblical Theology of the New Testament (BTNT) series provides upper college and seminary-level textbooks for students of New Testament theology, interpretation, and exegesis. Pastors and discerning theology readers alike will also benefit from this series. Written at the highest level of academic excellence by recognized experts in the field, the BTNT series not only offers a comprehensive exploration of the theology of every book of the New Testament, including introductory issues and major themes, but also shows how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology.

For forty years Peter Davids has labored lovingly over the Catholic Epistles; now he offers us the mature fruit of that labor. He delivers what the series promises: a rich theological reading of James, Peter, and Jude grounded in exegesis and well informed by the best in recent scholarship. If you want to know how to do biblical theology, look no further.
