The New Testament is filled with quotes and allusions from the Old Testament. But exactly how do New Testament texts relate to their Old Testament references? Did the OT authors intend these text to contain this meaning, or is it more complex than that? Can we use the Old Testament like the New Testament authors do, and if not, why?
Questions like these become crucial as we seek to understand the relationship between the two testaments, and this week's giveaway Three Views on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament, was written to address exactly those dilemmas.
In its pages Darrell Bock, Walt Kaiser, and Peter Enns present three different ways of understanding how the New Testament uses the Old, and what that means for us today. Each author also critiques the other two, providing a thoughtful starting point for anyone wrestling with these complex questions.
There are two copies of Three Views on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament available, and the giveaway will run through Thursday.
