Overview

These essays shed light on how the founders of Christianity understood the older sacred tradition and sought new and creative ways to let it speak to their own times. Top scholars offer their perspectives:

  • Gurtner discusses the Matthean version of the temptation narrative
  • Chandler investigates the exhortation to “love your neighbor as yourself”
  • Talbot reexamines Jesus’ offer of rest in Matthew 11:28–30
  • Myers explores how Matthew’s appeal to Isaiah 42:1–4 affects the characterization of Jesus in his Gospel
  • Hamilton explores 1 Enoch 6–11 as a retelling of Genesis 3–6
  • Hopkins investigates the manner in which Jesus engages questions and persons regarding purity and impurity
  • Miller notes that victory songs are a category of Hebrew poetry
  • Gregerman argues that studies of early Christian proselytism to Gentiles are largely focused on missionary methods of converts
