The New Testament as Reception

As the title implies, The New Testament as Reception systematically explores the concept of the New Testament as a "reception" of various antecedents. Three of the antecedents it examines are the Old Testament, Second Temple Judaism, and Graeco-Roman culture. The contributors also explore the reception of Jesus, using as examples the Synoptic parables, Matthew's Messianic Teacher, and the Christology of the Book of Revelation. Paul is considered in a chapter on his reception in Acts, and three final chapters survey broader themes, such as feminist reception, reception history within the New Testament (using the Annunciation as an example), and translation as interpretation.
