Overview

The Bible displays a remarkable literary and theological unity across a variety of genres. But applying a single, one-size-fits-all method of exegesis can lead to confusion and misunderstanding.

A valuable resource for students and pastors, the Kregel Handbooks for Old Testament and New Testament Exegesis provide an in-depth understanding of biblical genres and strategies for interpretation. Distinguish between Old Testament literary genres such as law, narrative, and poetry, and employ appropriate interpretive techniques for each. Dig into biblical passages with detailed examples of how to move from interpretation to preaching and teaching. These practical and user-friendly guides include explorations of the theological themes and historical context of the biblical authors, providing the tools you need for sound exegesis.

In the Logos edition, this collection is enhanced by amazing functionality.

Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Interpreting the General Letters provides important background material for the interpretation of the books of Hebrews, James, the Petrine letters, the Johannine letters, and Jude. New Testament scholar Herbert Bateman lays a strong hermeneutical foundation, detailing the component parts of letter writing, the importance of an amanuensis, the historical background of the Greco-Roman world, and implications of each of these factors for interpreting the general letters. He discusses the theology of the general letters, giving special consideration to the era of promise in Hebrew Scriptures, the era of fulfillment as underscored in the general letters, and how the theology of each letter contributes to the overall canon of Scripture. This practical guide includes Bateman’s nine steps to move from interpretation to communication, and examples of how to use them.

This is a valuable introductory tool for students who are learning how to interpret the General Letters and a trustworthy guide for pastors.
