In the comprehensive The New Testament: Its Background and Message, the late Thomas Lea presented a clear and concise introduction to the New Testament giving readers the key that unlocks the door to understanding these important texts. This influential work presents the background of the New Testament with broad strokes and with a focus on specific books including the Gospels, Acts, and Paul and his letters. Originally written in an easy-to-understand style and form, Lea’s text continues to unlock the message of the New Testament for both new students and seasoned scholars.
The late Thomas D. Lea was dean of the School of Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
David Alan Black, a well know and highly regarded New Testament scholar, is professor of New Testament and Greek at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. He is the author or editor of many books including Learning to Read New Testament Greek and interpreting the New Testament, published by Broadman & Holman. He resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Volume For Pastors and Students!March 4, 2016Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Part One was exceptional in the big picture background of the NT. The history from the end of the OT to the beginning of the NT well sets the stage. Daily life and the unique religious background of the times are carefully explained. The chapter on the text illumined canonicity in a small compass.
Part Two combines a study of the background of Jesus ministry and of the Gospels themselves. The four chapters on Jesuss ministry and its changing geographical emphasis are essential to properly understanding the New Testament.
The balance of the book covers Paul and the Epistles. It ends with a chapter on Revelation where various viewpoints are covered. Each NT book has its contents, unique features, themes, and an outline given.
There are helpful charts interspersed throughout the text. One of the best traits of this volume that is often missing in such volumes is that it reads well. I recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
