The Pontifical Biblical Commission has defended the authority and interpretation of the Holy Bible for over 100 years, convening to study, analyze, and discuss the interpretation of Scripture in the modern world, or to evaluate a potentially controversial interpretation or pronouncement on Scripture. These three volumes express unique research into the study of Scripture and its interpretation and meaning for us in the twenty-first century.

The Jewish People and their Sacred Scriptures in the Christian Bible departs from the traditional and popular Christocentric analysis of the Old Testament in order to bring scholars back to the Jewish roots and Jewish purpose of the Old Testament. Saying that “without the Old Testament, the New Testament would be an unintelligible book, a plant deprived of its roots and destined to dry up and wither,” in the preface (written by Joseph Ratzinger), the study analyzes the nature of the authority of the Old Testament, as well as the meaning of the “fulfillment” of the Scriptures.
