Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

This modern classic of biblical scholarship explains what the apostles meant when they used such words as "redeem," "covenant," "propitiate," "reconcile," and "justify." Leon Morris carefully explores these themes against the backgrounds of both Old Testament Judaism and New Testament Christianity — a rewarding task that results in a more complete understanding of these key Christian terms.

    Robert Dunbar
    A thorough, well-researched and well-written study that covers the various aspects of Christ's death: atonement, justification, redemption. Dr. Morris shows how the different terms were used in the Old Testament and in Greek and Jewish writings in New Testament times. This is a comprehensive word-study that shows what the apostles meant when they preached the gospel of the cross. Well worth reading--a knowledge of Greek and Hebrew pronunciation (if not the languages themselves) would be helpful.
