Book Description

18 Jan 2008
Readers of the New Testament often encounter quotes or allusions to Old Testament stories and prophecies that are unfamiliar or obscure. In order to fully understand the teachings of Jesus and his followers, it is important to understand the large body of Scripture that preceded and informed their thinking. Leading evangelical scholars G. K. Beale and D. A. Carson have brought together a distinguished team of scholars to provide readers with a comprehensive commentary on Old Testament quotations, allusions and echoes that appear from Matthew through to Revelation. College and seminary students, pastors, scholars and interested lay readers will want to add this unique commentary to their reference libraries.

`Commentary on the New Testament[`s] Use of the Old Testament' is a great resource `devoted... to the study of the NT text as it quotes and alludes to the OT text' (from the Introduction).

Like more conventional commentaries, this work is divided into chapters which each deal with, in order, a single NT book; and each chapter is further subdivided into sections discussing (usually) a selection of consecutive verses.

However this format is not followed by all the contributors as `the editors [Beale and Carson] have allowed adequate flexibility in presentation... [because of] the astonishing variety of ways in which the various NT authors make reference to the OT'. While all the articles seek to answer the same basic questions regarding context and interpretation, how each author achieves this varies significantly though none is necessarily `better' or `worse' than any other.

The text itself is printed in two columns per page (like a traditional Bible), which I find really helps the eye follow the text in large format books. The use of bold indented titles or chapter/verse headings with dainty little side and under-linings for each main section make for easy navigation; and one or two articles make use of very simple (but occasionally large) tables. At the end of each chapter there is an absolute monster bibliography: for instance, for Luke alone it stretches to nearly 11 solid pages of small, footnote-size fonts.

At first glance then, this book may not seem like a `usual' commentary and the concept of emphasising how the NT uses the OT is not `usual' either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Every exegete should have one 25 Nov 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Holy Spirit long ago inspired a commentary on the Old Testament, and was even kind enough to leave us with a copy (it's the New Testament, of course!)

Every NT reference to the OT, allusion, and rather a lot of links that are probably not in the text can be found in this compendious volume, and is treated with the kind of scholarship you'd expect from the chaps involved.

Every exegete and pastor should have this and use it every time they teach on the OT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Into the New, into the Old 11 Jun 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book fills a much needed gap in Biblical Studies. The New Testament is fundamentally based on the old and is rife with allusions and references to the Old. Any, any, Scholar, Pastor and Preacher would benefit greatly from this book, it is one that should sit alongside your Bible when studying the New Testament. It will produce a richness of understanding that will cause the heart, mind and soul to embrace the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars This may save time trawling through commentaries 12 Jan 2012
By skelly
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A very useful book compiled by well respected theologians. I found this very useful for an essay and can foresee it being very helpful for preparing sermons and by anyone who wish to quickly research the OT-NT connections in a verse or passage. Well worth the space on your bookshelf.
