Reading the Bible Intertextually
Hays, Richard B., Stefan Alkier and Leroy A. Huizenga, editors

Waco, TX: Baylor University Press, 2015 pp. xiv + 334. $49.95


Description: Reading the Bible Intertextually explores the revisionary hermeneutical practices of the writers of the four gospels. Each of the contributors examines the distinctive ways that the canonical evangelists put a particular "spin" on the story of Jesus through rereading the Old Testament in different ways. In addition, the evangelists' different ways of reading Israel's Scripture are correlated with different visions for the embodied life of the community of Jesus' followers. This is an exciting new reading of the gospels, bringing interdisciplinary and intertextual readings to the texts, articulated by some of the most brilliant New Testament scholars of our time.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Septuagint, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Interpretation
