Overview

The Guides to New Testament Exegesis Collection (7 vols.) provides the methods and principles you need to study the genres of the New Testament. These exegetical guides introduce readers to both the specific nature of a particular genre and to basic principles for exegeting that literary type.

Four literary types comprise the New Testament: the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the Letters, and the Apocalypse. Each genre is distinct, and each requires different methodological sensitivities. Consequently, applying the same method to different genres will often lead to serious misunderstandings. The Guides to New Testament Exegesis Collection (7 vols.) will show you how to discerningly examine the New Testament without fear of misinterpretation.

Moreover, each in-depth volume contains a myriad of views from scholars on particular issues specific to literary types found in the New Testament. The diversity of thought presented allows for a broader perspective on each topic discussed. Each volume concludes with a bibliography of 20 essential works for further study.

Included in the collection is Scot McKnight’s invaluable Introducing New Testament Interpretation. Featuring a basic foundation for exegesis which can be adapted to various genres, it takes care of the inevitable overlap of procedures one encounters while undertaking any New Testament book study. The individual exegetical guides then introduce the student to more specific background procedures for that particular genre.

The vision for this collection comes from Gordon Fee’s New Testament Exegesis: A Handbook for Students and Pastors. By developing handbooks for each genre and book collection, this collection operates as an extended treatment of Fee’s narrower scope.

Written for the novice exegete with minimal background in Greek, the Guide to New Testament Exegesis Collection (7 vols.) offers all those wishing for a deeper understanding of God’s Word a sturdy foothold in New Testament exegesis.

In the Logos editions, these valuable volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Reflecting the standard methods of the scholarly guild, Interpreting the Synoptic Gospels helps students formulate principles and techniques for studying the synoptic Gospels.

A valuable tool for the exegesis of the Gospels. The book is a treasure of information intended expressly for the exegete. There is a full, yet critical, introduction to the various methodologies, with an eye toward their usefulness in understanding the biblical text, along with excellent bibliographies. Books such as this should make us more responsible stewards of the Word of God.

Interpreting the Pauline Epistles

  • Author: Thomas R. Schreiner
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Publisher: Baker Academic
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 192

Leading Pauline studies expert Thomas Schreiner provides an updated guide to the exegesis of the New Testament epistles traditionally assigned to Paul. The first edition helped thousands of students dig deeper into studying the New Testament epistles. This new edition is revised throughout to account for changes in the field and to incorporate the author’s maturing judgments. The book helps readers understand the nature of first-century letters, do textual criticism, investigate historical and introductory issues, probe theological context, and much more.

This is a wonderfully clear and thorough guide. Schreiner draws on his decades of scholarship to paint a ‘big picture’ of how to read Paul’s letters. At the same time, he breaks the reading process down into smaller steps, and he illustrates those steps with numerous examples. For students who want to move from guesswork and random dabbling to informed, life-changing engagement with the divinely inspired writings of the apostle Paul, there is no better starting place.

Robert W. Yarbrough, associate professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Trinity International University

In a welcome update to a tried and trusted textbook, Tom Schreiner shows us how to find our way around Paul’s world, letters, language, culture, and theology. Whether one is deciphering Paul’s Greek grammar, learning how to follow his arguments, or studying Paul’s unique vocabulary, Schreiner is a reliable guide to the novice and veteran alike. Seminary students will be forever grateful to Schreiner for giving them this book!

Michael F. Bird, lecturer in theology, Crossway College

The new, updated edition of Tom Schreiner’s excellent little book will be a boon to those who want to be responsible interpreters of Scripture. Although it specifically addresses the interpretation of Paul’s letters, its principles are appropriate to all biblical interpretation. Schreiner, himself a masterful exegete, writes with his typical clarity and with the conviction that these writings are the inspired word of God. Those who read and heed this practical handbook will be in a strong position to feed the flock of Christ.

Interpreting the Gospel of John

  • Author: Gary M. Burge
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Publisher: Baker Academic
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 224

This classroom favorite by respected New Testament scholar Gary Burge is a practical resource for students and scholars. The expanded second edition, revised to take account of current scholarship, introduces software tools that have become available since the original edition was published. Combining original insight with how-to guidance, this introduction to the Gospel of John helps students interpret the text and apply it in teaching and preaching.

Interpreting the Book of Acts

  • Author: Walter L. Liefeld
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1995
  • Pages: 144

The diversity of material in the Book of Acts demands a variety of exegetical tools and strategies. Since speeches constitute over 30% of the text, the interpreter must be adept at handling discourse and well as narrative.

Interpreting the Book of Acts presents the fruit of the author’s 30-year reflection on the Lukan corpus. With a sure hand he guides the reader through numerous approaches to the text. Literary purpose and structure, narrative theology, discourse analysis, cultural backgrounds—all are exploited for insight. Yet throughout, the author keeps in view the practical needs of the student and pastor, breathing a spiritual warmth into the applications he makes.

Walter L. Liefeld is distinguished professor emeritus of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and is the author of 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus in the NIV Application Commentary series.

Interpreting the Epistle to the Hebrews

  • Editor: Andrew H. Trotter Jr.
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 222

Presenting a wealth of introductory material, Interpreting the Epistle to the Hebrews serves as an essential prolegomenon for further study of this epistle and enables readers to make informed judgments when using commentaries.

Identifying Hebrews as a sermon with an epistolary twist, Trotter strikes a fine balance between his own cogently argued views and a judicious distillation of the best of current scholarship on the text. . . . [His] success in helping his readers develop observational skills and an ability to think logically about the text makes this work an ideal textbook for classroom use in courses on Hebrews or New Testament exegesis.

William L. Lane, former Paul T. Walls Chair in Wesleyan and Biblical Studies, Seattle Pacific University

Seldom does one encounter a reader-friendly book like this one, written with verve but also reflecting scholarship of the highest caliber. Trotter has produced a superb aid to the understanding of Hebrews, covering everything necessary from discussion of its historical context to such things as structure, rhetoric, and theology. . . . I am happy to recommend Trotter’s fine work enthusiastically.

Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

Interpreting the Book of Revelation

  • Editor: J. Ramsey Michaels
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1992
  • Pages: 150

What the book of Revelation requires is not that we know in advance what is coming, but that we know how to meet it when it comes. This volume helps students do just that.

Interpreting the Book of Revelation provides a concise introduction to the careful interpretive study of Revelation. Its meticulous, scholarly approach to studying linguistic structure, vocabulary, and variant readings provides a sound exegetical model.

Throughout, the author stands behind the unity of this challenging New Testament book as prophecy influenced by current events—predictive, yet calling readers to faith now.

If one wants to make a study of the Book of Revelation, this should be one of the first [books] to be read.
