Overview

James Moffatt’s contribution to New Testament studies in the twentieth century was immense. His interest in the historical aspect of the New Testament and Jesus' theology guided and directed the conversations of theology during his time. The James Moffatt New Testament Studies Collection provides an important look at the development of theology and New Testament studies at the turn of the nineteenth century, as structuralism and formalism fell to the wayside and historical and textual criticism continued to rise in academic discussion.

James Moffatt also believed in the importance of effective and powerful preaching. Many of his works, especially the Literary Illustrations of the Bible series, provide important illustrations on key Bible verses, and his Expositor’s Dictionaries provide literary and poetical quotations on nearly every verse in the Bible.

In Logos, the value of this collection gets bigger. Illustrations and quotations from Moffatt will appear in your Sermon Starter Guide, allowing you to quickly find what you need when you search by verse. And Logos lets you take New Testament studies where you go—every volume is accessible on your mobile device, tablet, or home computer.

  • Author: James Moffatt
  • Publisher: C. Scribner
  • Publication Date: 1921
  • Pages: 630

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

A massive and thorough introduction to New Testament studies, An Introduction to the Literature of the New Testament explores all aspects of New Testament studies on an introductory level, giving students and scholars a starting place for literary, textual, canonical, and socio-historical studies of each New Testament book. Each New Testament book begins with an enormous reading list of commentaries and studies for further reading, followed with outlines, notes on Greek textual variations, literary analysis, structural analysis, and the history of interpretation of the text.

Dr. Moffatt’s Introduction [to the Literature of the New Testament] is. . . the first of its size and importance, conceived and written in English, to treat its subject in the light of current critical opinion and to register the results of recent investigation in statements of fact and judgments of appreciation.

Princeton Theological Review, vol. 9

A work which must for long be the only manual for English students and the basis for all their work on the subject.

The Approach to the New Testament: Lectures Delivered in London and Cambridge, April–May, 1921

  • Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
  • Publication Date: 1921
  • Pages: 240

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

The Hibbert Lectures were a rich tradition of annual non-sectarian theological lectures in London which began in 1849 and continued until 2005. James Moffatt’s 1921 lecture series discussed the importance of New Testament socio-historical studies. Moffatt argued that the New Testament is an astounding historical work of secular importance as much as it was of religious importance. Much more than that, he argued that there is enormous value in applying a secular socio-historical approach to the New Testament.

The Theology of the Gospels

  • Author: James Moffatt
  • Publisher: Charles Scribner’s Sons
  • Publication Date: 1912
  • Pages: 220

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

In this volume—written after a series of lectures Moffatt gave at the University of Glasgow—Moffatt takes theology in a “stricter rather than wider” study. Moffatt analyzes what is explicitly stated within the gospels, developing an almost literal theology as pronounced by the writers of the gospels. Not to be taken as a handbook on the gospels, nor a study on the teaching of Jesus, The Theology of the Gospels is a grouping of independent studies on core gospel themes.

Contents:

  • Chapter I: The Gospels and Their Theology
  • Chapter II: The Eschatology of the Gospels
  • Chapter III: The God of Jesus
  • Chapter IV: The Person of Jesus
  • Chapter V: The Spirit of Jesus

The Second Things of Life

  • Author: James Moffatt
  • Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
  • Publication Date: 1920
  • Pages: 144

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

The Second Things of Life is a series of sermons, expository and illustrative in form and style, given by Moffatt to the congregation of the East Church at Broughty Ferry.

Contents:

  • Chapter I: The Second Chance (2 Tim. 4:11)
  • Chapter II: The Second Blow (Matt 5:39)
  • Chapter III: The Second Thought (1 Sam. 16:6–7)
  • Chapter IV: The Second Wave (Matt 26:47)
  • Chapter V: The Second Place (Acts 1:23, 26)
  • Chapter VI: The Second Watch (Luke 12:37–38)
Six delightful studies. There is evidence of as accurate knowledge of human nature as of the teaching of the Scriptures.

Paul and Paulinism

  • Author: James Moffatt
  • Publisher: Pilgrim Press
  • Publication Date: 1910
  • Pages: 78

Does the Old Testament anticipate a Jewish leader like Paul of Tarsus? Is Gentile Christianity synonymous with Pauline Christianity? This concise treatise analyzes Paul and Paulinism in the Old and New Testaments, providing an interesting look at Paul through history, Paul’s own words, and other New Testament and first-century evidence of him. What Moffatt finds, however, is a far more Jewish figure than early Christianity makes him out to be.

Grace in the New Testament

  • Author: James Moffatt
  • Publisher: Ray Long & Richard R. Smith
  • Publication Date: 1932
  • Pages: 419

A rare and hard-to-find volume, Grace in the New Testament is a theological study of the New Testament’s teaching on grace.

  • Publication Date: 1913
  • Pages: 234

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

However well read a man may be in the great poets, it is impossible for him to have always at command the exact poetic quotation that will best serve him in elucidating the particular text upon which he may have chosen to discourse; and it is not likely that he will have the time, even if he should happen to have the works of the poets in his library, to pursue the necessary quest for the right passage from the right poet. At this juncture, The Expositor’s Dictionary of Poetical Quotations supplies just what is required. The editor has ranged the whole field of English poetry and beyond, to find the relevant and pertinent poetic thought for the illustration of the leading texts of Scripture.
