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:

  • Myers addresses John’s use of Moses traditions in his characterization of Jesus
  • Stewart examines the Johannine use of Psalm 82 by merging a broader contextual examination with an analysis of formal logic
  • Moyise discusses Paul’s quotations and explores their relevance for the scholarly consensus
  • Lincicum studies Paul’s letters and the Temple Scroll and compares their exegetical practice with references to Deuteronomy
  • Wells discusses the topic of divine and human agency in Pauline theology and soteriology
  • Luckensmeyer investigates how Paul wove words, phrases, and themes from Obadiah into his first letter to the Thessalonian Christians
  • Becker examines 2 Corinthians 3:4–18 and Mark 9:2–9
  • Bucur investigates the peculiar reading of Habakkuk 3:2
  • Jobes probes the extent of the influence of the 12 Minor Prophets on the writers of the New Testament
  • Matlock examines Solomon’s prayer of dedication of the Jerusalem temple
  • Stern proposes a new model for understanding both the role of biblical texts in early Jewish liturgy and the relationship between biblical and non-biblical utterances in the early synagogue context
