Jewish Themes in the New Testament examines the New Testament’s teachings about the Jewish people in the era of the New Covenant. The core of that teaching is an affirmation of God’s continued faithfulness to them. In a day when opinions regarding the Jewish people are increasingly polarized—as some stress their position center-stage and others consign them to the dustbin of history—Paul Morris seeks to demonstrate from the New Testament that both extremes are wrong. This unique book considers the theological issues, but it is concerned for much more; it is about Jewish people and the Jews as a people, as the New Testament sees them.
