  1. Echoes of Scripture In The Gospels

    Echoes of Scripture In The Gospels

    $87.90

    The claim that the events of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection took place "according to the Scriptures" stands at the heart of the New Testament's message. All four canonical Gospels declare that the Torah and the Prophets and the Psalms mysteriously prefigure Jesus. The author of the Fourth Gospel states this claim succinctly: in his narrative, Jesus declares, "If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me" (John 5:46). Yet modern historical criticism characteristically judges that the New Testament's christological readings of Israel's Scripture misrepresent the original sense of the texts; this judgment forces fundamental questions to be asked: Why do the Gospel writers read the Scriptures in such surprising ways? Are their readings intelligible as coherent or persuasive interpretations of the Scriptures? Does Christian faith require the illegitimate theft of someone else's sacred texts? Echoes of Scripture in the Gospels answers these questions. Richard B. Hays chronicles the dramatically different ways the four Gospel writers interpreted Israel's Scripture and reveals that their readings were as complementary as they were faithful. In this long-awaited sequel to his Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul, Hays highlights the theological consequences of the Gospel writers' distinctive hermeneutical approaches and asks what it might mean for contemporary readers to attempt to read Scripture through the eyes of the Evangelists. In particular, Hays carefully describes the Evangelists' practice of figural reading―an imaginative and retrospective move that creates narrative continuity and wholeness. He shows how each Gospel artfully uses scriptural echoes to re-narrate Israel's story, to assert that Jesus is the embodiment of Israel's God, and to prod the church in its vocation to engage the pagan world. Hays shows how the Evangelists summon readers to a conversion of their imagination. The Evangelists' use of scriptural echo beckons readers to believe the extraordinary: that Jesus was Israel's Messiah, that Jesus is Israel's God, and that contemporary believers are still on mission. The Evangelists, according to Hays, are training our scriptural senses, calling readers to be better scriptural people by being better scriptural poets. Learn More
  2. The Making of the New Testament: Church, Gospel and Canon

    The Making of the New Testament: Church, Gospel and Canon

    $25.95

    “This book is a truly remarkable ‘short study’ telling the extraordinary story of the making of the New Testament in the light of the rise and growth of the ancient universal Church. Its impeccable academic quality is accompanied in every chapter by the profound hermeneutical insights provided by the life of the Church and the patristic-biblical-exegetical heritage. I am sure that [it] will be spiritually edifying and theologically informative, connecting the readers to the New Testament, the eternal sacred text of the Church, and the absolute Word of God.” From the Foreword by Archbishop Demetrios Trakatellis Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America “Fr. Theodore Stylianopoulos’ new book is an extraordinary study––short, concise, complete, carefully and fairly written. It synthesizes the fruits of a lifetime of rigorous historical-critical scholarship together with a lifetime of faith, worship, and service in the Church that canonized the twenty-seven New Testament writings which in turn, each in its own way, bears witness to the Church’s evangelical “canon of faith” summed up in the apostolic gospel. I recommend this rare achievement to everyone interested in this crucial subject that remains as controversial today as ever.” Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko, Dean Emeritus St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, Crestwood, New York “The Making of the New Testament is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the current state of Orthodox biblical studies. Scholarly but readable, balanced but passionately argued, the book explores the organic interdependence of the nascent Church and the writings that would become our New Testament––an interdependence based on and expressive of the apostolic gospel in all its fullness.” Rev. Dr. John Erickson Peter N. Gramowich Professor of Church History, Emeritus, and former Dean of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary Learn More
