This book brings together New Testament experts, including James D.G. Dunn, Bruce Chilton, David deSilva, Craig Evans, and more, to track developments in their particular fields of research and to explain why those developments are important. The twenty-two contributors survey recent research into the historical, social, and literary contexts of the New Testament, recent advances in textual criticism and Greek grammar, and current issues in the interpretation of each New Testament book. This book will be a timely reference for students and scholars of the New Testament as well as for pastors and interested readers who want to bring their awareness of New Testament studies up to date.
