Interpreting the Old Testament Theologically

How should Christians read the Old Testament today? Answers to this question gravitate between two poles. On the one hand, some pay little attention to the gap between the Old Testament and today, reading the Old Testament like a devotional allegory that points the Christian directly to Jesus. On the other hand, there are folks who prioritize an Old Testament passage's original context to such an extent that it is by no means clear if and how a given Old Testament text might bear witness to Christ and address the church. This volume is a tribute to Willem A. VanGemeren, an ecclesial scholar who operated amidst the tension between understanding texts in their original context and their theological witness to Christ and the church. The contributors in this volume share a conviction that Christians must read the Old Testament with a theological concern for how it bears witness to Christ and nourishes the church, while not undermining the basic principles of exegesis. Two questions drive these essays as they address the topic of reading the Old Testament theologically. Christology. If the Old Testament bears witness to Christ, how do we move from an Old Testament text, theme, or book to Christ? Ecclesiology. If the Old Testament is meant to nourish the church, how do scriptures originally given to Israel address the church today? The volume unfolds by first considering exegetical habits that are essential for interpreting the Old Testament theologically. Then several essays wrestle with how topics from select Old Testament books can be read theologically. Finally, it concludes by addressing several communal matters that arise when reading the Old Testament theologically.

INTERPRETING THE BIBLE

In this convenient introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics, New Testament scholar, author of 160+ books Edward D. Andrews instructs readers on distinguishing different biblical genres, to understand what the Bible authors meant from the conservative grammatical-historical perspective, and how they can apply that meaning into their lives. Jesus said, “If you remain in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32) Andrews teaches how to study the Bible on a deep, scholarly level, yet making it understandable to all. INTERPRETING THE BIBLE is excellent for the beginner and a comprehensive refresher for the experienced teacher or pastor.

Typos

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. In 1938-39 Leonhard Goppelt finished his doctoral dissertation at Erlangen entitled "Typos: Die typologische Deutung des Alten Testaments im Neuen." The lasting value of his work was evidenced in 1969 when this dissertation was reprinted, with an appendix on "Apocalypticism and Typology in Paul." Goppelt's work has maintained its significance because it deals with biblical hermeneutics -- the study of the methodology of biblical interpretation -- a subject of renewed interest in the last few years. In his search for a normative hermeneutics, Goppelt appeals to the New Testament's interpretation of the Old Testament as a guide. He offers "a study of the interpretation of Scripture that is characteristic of the New Testament" in order to provide a standard guide for interpreting the Bible today. The focal question for Goppelt is how the Old Testament and Jesus Christ are related, and Goppelt's answer to this question is found in how the New Testament interprets the Old Testament -- typologically. Goppelt begins with a brief survey of the various definitions of typology to determine how it is distinguished from allegory, with which it is often confused. After this introductory chapter, Goppelt divides his work into three parts: Typology in Late Judaism, Typology in the New Testament, and Apocalypticism and Typology in Paul. In his survey of late Judaism, Goppelt examines both Palestinian and Hellenistic Judaism to determine the place of typology in their literatures. Turning to the New Testament, Goppelt looks first at the portrayal of Jesus Christ in the Synoptic Gospels and Acts. Elements of this portrayal are Jesus as the Prophet, as the Son of David and Lord, and as the Son of Man. Goppelt finds each of these characterizations typologically related to the Old Testament. Similarly, in his next chapter on the church as portrayed in the Synoptics and Acts, Goppelt finds a number of typological relationships between the people of God in the Old Testament and the church in the New Testament. Goppelt next examines the Pauline epistles for Paul's use of Scripture in general and for his view of Christ and the church. Goppelt here appends brief treatments on 1 and 2 Peter and Jude. In following chapters Goppelt deals with Hebrews, the Gospel of John, and finally apocalypticism and typology in Paul. Here he also examines traditional approaches to the relationship between the Old Testament and the New, the origin and legitimacy of the typological approach, and the relationship between typology and the historical-critical method.

Summary of Robert L  Plummer s 40 Questions about Interpreting the Bible

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 To sum up the question, what is the difference between the Bible and other sacred texts. The answer is: The Bible is the Word of God. If you know that, you are halfway to understanding why Jesus said, He who does not listen to me [God] cannot have eternal life (John 5:24). The Old Testament prophets spoke God’s Word to the people of Israel. God used a series of human authors to write down His Word. The author of the Old Testament books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel all lived around the same time. So, there is a fairly close connection between their books and the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus Christ. The New Testament reflects the life and ministry of Jesus Christ himself. It was written by many different authors over a period of about thirty years. The books were also assembled into a final form around 100 AD. So, there is no single author or editor who can be identified as being behind every book that appears in the New Testament. So, when we look at the Bible, we see that it is the work of many human authors and editors who were each inspired by the Holy Spirit to write what they wrote. #2 The Bible is the Word of God. It was written by many different authors and editors who were each inspired by the Holy Spirit to write what they wrote. The Bible itself is a collection of sixty-six smaller books, or literary works, which claim the Holy Spirit as the ultimate authority and safeguard behind their writing. #3 The Bible is the Word of God.

The Bible itself is a collection of sixty-six smaller books, or literary works, which claim the Holy Spirit as the ultimate authority and safeguard behind their writing. #4 The Bible is the Word of God.

BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS

In this new third edition of BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS, Bible scholar Edward D. Andrews gives the reader a thorough study of hermeneutics as a discipline. BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS has never been broken. The modern scholarship did that.

BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS

BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS by Milton S. Terry has been the standard text for over 130 years for generations of students, pastors, and serious Bible readers. There have been hundreds of books written over that time, and they all have only one thing in common, they quote Milton S. Terry's BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS. Why read those who quote the standard when you can now read the new, revised, updated standard itself. This third edition has been substantially updated and expanded. Edward D. Andrews, the author of 160+ books and Chief Translator of the Updated American Standard Version, makes significant adjustments to history's best book on biblical hermeneutics even better. In addition, five new chapters have been included that address more recent controversial issues. BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS offers all the best and most up-to-date information needed to interpret Scripture the correct way. Yes, the approach herein has not changed, nor will it ever. It follows the longstanding historical-grammatical method of interpretation (objective), not the modern historical-critical method (subjective). If today's churchgoer can learn the correct principles and processes for biblical hermeneutics, more accurate and beneficial biblical interpretation can be accomplished. In this new third edition of BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS, Bible scholar Edward D. Andrews gives the reader a thorough study of hermeneutics as a discipline. BIBLICAL HERMENEUTICS has never been broken. The modern scholarship did that. Now, we can access the standard that has long been quoted by thousands of scholars and tens of thousands of pastors.

Interpreting the Old Testament after Christendom

Interpreting the Old Testament after Christendom

How would you describe the Old Testament? Offensive, violent, patriarchal, archaic; difficult, boring, obsolete? Many Christians don’t bother with it anymore. Yet these ancient books were in Jesus’ lifeblood, and they provided the thought-world of those early followers who wrote about him in what became the New Testament. This book challenges those stereotypes of Israel’s Scriptures by exploring their significance in the apostolic writings and by demonstrating the importance of whole books for nuanced interpretation. It takes readers on a tour through four key books before considering the wider issues of interpretation that readers must consider in order to hear God’s Spirit speaking afresh to a range of contemporary concerns, including racism and the environment.
