Product Description

Steve Moyise's scholarship has focused on the cutting-edge of the New Testament's reception of the Old Testament for many years, and he has produced several leading scholarly publications on this complicated issue. In 2010, Moyise published Paul and Scripture: Studying the New Testament use of the Old Testament which provided an introductory examination of Paul's use of Israel's Scripture, outlined and critiqued prominent theories regarding Paul's approach, and noted areas of critical concern ripe for further research.

Now, in 2011, Moyise has produced a sister volume entitled Jesus and Scripture: Studying the New Testament use of the Old Testament in which he follows the same model he set forth in his 2010 volume Paul and Scripture. Here explains the way Jesus is depicted as using Scripture to testify to himself and in his teaching in each of the four canonical Gospels, and addresses issues relating to Q, various criterions as they apply to each individual Gospel, the LXX, while addressing the most important specific Old Testament citations. Moyise also considers scholarly views classifying them as: 1) the minimalist view (those who believe Jesus used very little Scripture); 2) the moderate view; and 3) the maximalist view (those who believe Jesus used the OT frequently). On these views, he offers critique and review and notes areas requiring further study.

Both books Paul and Scripture and Jesus and Scripture provide lucid and comprehensive introductions to their respective sub-fields, and make outstanding introductory texts for exegesis, hermeneutics, and Biblical Theology courses among others. Each volume provides just enough information to open students eyes to the difficulties associated with this field and will prove to be excellent reference volumes for those active in this field and for general readers as they continue to study the Bible throughout their lives.

Endorsements

This balanced and informed survey of a fascinating and controversial topic--Jesus and Scripture--should serve students well. A first rate introduction.
-Dale C. Allison,
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Recent study of the NeW Testament has demonstrated the crucial role played by Scriptu7re in the development of the tradition. In this study of Jesus and Scripture, Steve Moyise turns to the most fundamental question of all, how did Jesus himself use it? His lucid discussion not only provides an excellent survey of the topic but also introduces students to the interlocking problems of the reliability of the tradition and the relationships of the Gospels to one another.
-Morna D. Hooker,
Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity Emeritus
University of Cambridge

Steve Moyise's Jesus and Scripture begins with concise assessments of how Jesus used and understood Old Testament Scripture in the four respective New Testament Gospels. Moyise then surveys opinions on the subject from a range of scholars, from those who think Jesus made little or no use of Scripture to those who think that Jesus made extensive use of Scripture. The excellent book strikes the right balance and brings clarity to a subject that is often in convoluted and confusing ways. Its value for students is obvious, but veteran scholars will also find it very helpful.

Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament,
Acadia Divinity College
