Sacred Tradition in the New Testament: Tracing Old Testament Themes in the Gospels and Epistles
Porter, Stanley E.

Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2016 pp. xxiv + 310. $36.55


Description: Leading biblical scholar Stanley Porter critiques the state of research regarding the New Testament's use of the Old Testament and sacred traditions. He provides needed orientation for readers interested in New Testament references to themes such as "son of man" and "suffering servant" as well as the faith of Abraham and the Passover. Porter explains that examining scriptural traditions is fundamental to understanding central ideas in the New Testament regarding Jesus. He sheds light on major themes in New Testament Christology and soteriology, offering fresh, constructive proposals.
