Description: In Paul and Scripture, an international group of scholars discusses a range of topics related to the apostle Paul and his relationship(s) with Jewish scripture. The essays represent a broad spectrum of viewpoints, with some devoted to methodological issues, others to general patterns in Paul's uses of scripture, and still others to specific letters or passages within the traditional Pauline canon (disputed letters included). The end result is an overview of the various ways in which Paul the apostle weaves into his writings the authority, content, and even wording of Jewish Scriptures. The contributors to this volume are Linda Belleville, Craig Blomberg, John Cook, Panayotis Coutsoumpos, James Harrison, Tom Holmťn, Arland Hultgren, Jey Kanagaraj, Colin Kruse, Christopher Land, Lau Chi Hing, Gerbern Oegema, Markus ÷hler, Stanley Porter, Ilaria Ramelli, Drake Williams, and Ryder Wishart.
Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Judaism, Literary Approaches, New Testament Use of Old Testament
