Reading the books of the Law, the Pentateuch, in their original context is the crucial prerequisite for reading their 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 on the Pentateuch, as well as a reasoned consideration of how these books 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 convivial writing style will attract a wide readership to this next installment of his "old and new" series. His Christocentric approach to the "old" law will continue to incite dialogue and his explanation of the "new" law will be a help to readers of the New Testament.

-Bill T. Arnold, Asbury Theological Seminary

Completing his trilogy of exploring intertexuality in the Psalms, Isaiah, and now the Torah, this volume puts Witherington's impressive command of the biblical documents and their backgrounds on full display. While I don't agree with all of his proposals, I've learned much from this well-conceived study.

-Andreas J. Köstenberger, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
