Three Views On The New Testament Use Of The Old Testament
by Kaiser, Bock, Enns edited by Gundry, Berding, Lunde
Paperback: 243 pages
Date Published: 2007
Point: The Old Testament is used heavily throughout the New Testament. How did the authors understand the texts they were using? This book addresses that question.
Path: By allowing three influential authors to present their view and challenge those of others, this book guides the reader to his own conclusions.
Kaiser - Single meaning, unified referents
Bock - Single meaning, multiple contexts and referents
Enns - Fuller meaning, single goal
Agreement: I would agree the most with Bock, am sympathetic toward Kaiser and his concerns, and see why Enns would be moving the direction he is.
Personal App: This is an incredibly helpful book with an exception introduction and conclusion by the editors.
Stars: 5 out of 5
It would be worth another read and I would recommend it.
