No body of literature exercised as much influence on the writers of the NT as did Israel's Scriptures. This is hardly surprising since for them this new thing God had done in Christ was the climactic fulfillment of his centuries old promises to his people. Yet few matters are the subject of such impassioned and wide-ranging debate as is the question of how the NT authors interpret the OT, particularly in the light of Jesus and his gospel. This is especially important since one cannot separate their treatment of Scripture from the theological content of their writings. Questions abound: Do they, as sometimes charged, twist the Scriptures? What, if at all, is the role of the OT context? How do we explain the significant variations and sometimes remarkable differences between the OT text and its supposed quotation in the NT? How can a text that was not even considered a prophecy be 'fulfilled'? Are the NT authors reliable interpreters, or must we admit that they use methods that no modern bible reader could accept? Is there an underlying coherence, and if so, what does this mean for how they understood theology? Lectures include:
