In this second of two volumes, Ben Witherington explores the symbolic universe and the narrative thought world shared by all the New Testament writers, in an effort to discern how they might synthesize the theology and ethics within the New Testament as a whole. He proceeds by addition, looking first at the theology and ethics of Jesus and seeing how the New Testament writers add to and reinforce what they find there and also what they later de-emphasize. The result is that readers are able to soak in the thought world of the New Testament writers, learning to think with them in terns that do not separate theology from ethics, doctrine from discipleship. This integrated perspective offers fresh insights and an innovative approach to the whole of the New Testament.

Praise for the Print Edition

By insisting that theology be placed in conversation with ethics, Witherington offers numerous insights on the necessary intersection of faith and works, church and society. He and I may disagree on the particulars of Jewish tradition and women’s roles in antiquity, but I have learned much from his canonically comprehensive, evangelically committed, historically informed and engagingly presented way of doing theology.

—Amy-Jill Levine, professor of New Testament Studies, Vanderbilt Divinity School

Ben Witherington is a skilled historical exegete who has, probably uniquely in our generation, pursued his passion for the theological and ethical message of the New Testament through commentaries on every one of the New Testament books. Now he has given us a summation that is even more unusual—a New Testament theology that allows to every one of those books a voice that really counts. A magnificent climax to Witherington’s work.

Richard Bauckham, Emeritus Professor, University of St. Andrews
