Book Description

3 Jun 2010 The Library of New Testament Studies (Book 424)
This is a source-critical investigation of selected portions of the "Synoptic Gospels" and John's "Apocalypse". Paul Penley advances our understanding of the sources used behind the composition of John's "Apocalypse" by performing a source-critical investigation of selected portions of the "Synoptic Gospels" and John's "Apocalypse". Penley applies specific criteria for compositional influence (shared vocabulary, phrases, grammar, syntax, ideas, and contexts) to multiple portions of the "Apocalypse and of the Gospels of "Matthew" and "Luke" demonstrating that interpretive traditions controlling the appropriation of OT prophetic material in the Synoptic accounts of Jesus' message of Jerusalem's destruction also gave shape to parts of the message of judgment in John's "Apocalypse". It was formerly the "Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement", a book series that explores the many aspects of New Testament study including historical perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and theological, cultural and contextual approaches. "The Early Christianity in Context" series, a part of "JSNTS", examines the birth and development of early Christianity up to the end of the third century CE. The series places Christianity in its social, cultural, political and economic context. "European Seminar on Christian Origins" and "Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus Supplement" are also part of "JSNTS".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for Revelation studies 21 Jan 2011
By Kenneth L. Gentry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am currently working on an academic commentary on Revelation. Few books have been more valuable to my research than Penley's: I highly commend it to anyone who is engaging a serious, in-depth study of Revelation -- especially if you are approaching Revelation from an orthodox preterist perspective.

Penley provides excellent source-critical research into the background of John's imagery. Though the Old Testament is John's primary lexical and ideational source, Penley (as does L. A. Vos before him) demonstrates that Jesus's Synoptic eschatological discourses also provide an important influence on John's presentation.

Significant in his presentation is that the author allows the possibility of: (1) the second beast from the Land being a first-century Jewish religious leader; (2) the "tribes of the earth" representing the Jewish "tribes of the Land"; and (3) Babylon picturing Jerusalem. These are views I present and defind in my books Navigating the Book of Revelation and Before Jerusalem Fell: Dating the Book of Revelation, and thus find Penley's research confirmation extremely valuable. Penley's work is a serious academic book and may not be for everyone. But for anyone looking for in-depth insights into John's drama, this is an important contribution to research.

I would also recommend (for similar reasons) Edmondo F. Lupieri, A Commentary on the Apocalypse of John (Italian Texts and Studies on Religion and Society) and Eugenio Corsini, The Apocalypse: The Perennial Revelation of Jesus Christ (Good News Studies Vol. 5) (though some of Corsini's work is not helpful).
