The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross, a work that can now be placed among the modern classics of biblical scholarship, delves into the minds of the apostles in order to understand their use of such terms as "redeem," "covenant," "propitiate," "reconcile," and "justify" - concepts that remain central to the Christian faith today. Respected scholar Leon Morris studies these themes against the background of relevant Old Testament passages, takes into account the light shed on the meanings of these words in the everyday language New Testament times by recent manuscript discoveries, and compares apostolic terminology to that used in the writings of rabbinical Judaism. The result of Morris's careful background research is a lucid and rewarding study of the source of Christian theology - the death of Christ and the interpretation of its significance by the early church.
