Book Description

1 Mar 2013 Myrtlefield Expositions
The wisdom of God is revealed in both Old and New Testaments, but it is impossible to appreciate that wisdom fully if the two are read in isolation. Sometimes the New Testament quotes the Old as authoritative. Sometimes it cancels things that the Old says. At other times it indicates that the Old was a type that illustrates New Testament doctrine. How are we to understand and apply its teaching? Is the New Testament being arbitrary when it tells us how to understand the Old, or do its careful interpretations show us how the Old was meant to be understood? Could it be that the New Testament's many different ways of using some of its passages provide us with guidance for reading, studying and applying the whole of the Old Testament? Drawing upon many years of biblical research and teaching, Professor Gooding addresses these issues by expounding key New Testament passages that use the Old Testament. First he examines the importance of the general relationship of the two testaments. He then considers five major thought categories of the New Testament's interpretation that encompass the many insights that it employs as tools for harvesting the wealth of the Old. Finally he formulates guidelines for interpreting Old Testament narrative and illustrates them from three familiar passages. Taken together these insights provide invaluable help for appreciating the richness of God's multifaceted wisdom, which has come down to us as the revenue of all the ages. David W. Gooding is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament Greek at Queen's University, Belfast and a member of the Royal Irish Academy. His international teaching ministry is marked by fresh and careful expositions of both testaments. He has published scholarly studies on the Septuagint and Old Testament narratives, as well as expositions of Luke, John 13-17, Acts and Hebrews.

Excellent tool to link the OT to the NT and he makes the discussion clear. It is unfortunate that OT does not generally get the study it deserves. This is a must for any serious student and essential for one's library. I love his explanation of the Covenant with Abraham which is unconditional and does not include circumcision. I like his quote on the bottom of page 134 "Faith meant believing God who, when all human resources and effort was shown to be helpless and hopeless, could and would do what he originally promised to do and bring life out of death". His explanation of the role of Melchizedek in Chapter 17 is very helpful. I like his quote on page 221 "Christ thus delivers people from the prison of mere temporal life and gives them here and now a new dimension to life ". Our book club have enjoyed the book so much that that we have decided to study his book on the Acts

Recent interest in the theme of the ways in which early Christian writers used their Bible, that is, what we call the Old Testament, have enriched our understanding of the value of the Old Testament for the modern Christian reader. This book covers a range of ways in which the inspired new Testament writers used Old Testament sources. This contributes to our ability to see Holy Scriptures as a single basis for our faith. The book provides a caution against rash and unwarranted liberties with the Old Testament which were sometimes taken by early Christian fathers, and indee also by some modern writers. On the other hand it shows that there are places in which new Testament writers see a 'sensus plenior' in some Old Testament stories where we might miss it. The scope of the book enables us to move towards a balanced approach to Biblical interpretation.
