New Testament : Student's Introduction - 5th edition

New Testament : Student`s Introduction (ISBN10: 0072876018; ISBN13: 9780072876017)
ISBN13: 978-0072876017
ISBN10: 0072876018

Summary:
  • The fifth edition is full-color, significantly enhancing the quality of maps, charts, and other illustrations.
  • Vibrant new photographs show major archaeological sites and monuments associated with Christianity in the Greco-Roman period. Besides new photos showing numerous inscriptions and archaeological artifacts linked to New Testament characters and events, colorful mosaics from Ravenna and ear
    ly Christian art from the catacombs are also included.
  • Additional coverage focuses on Herod and his dynasty, as well as on the entire historical background of the rise of Christianity.
  • Chapter 5 further emphasizes the diversity of Palestinian Judaism at the time of Jesus and provides a fuller and more accurate picture of Jewish ideas about the Messiah's political role, as well as a more complete coverage of messianic passages from the Old Testament.
  • In Chapter 6, new material highlights new trends in current scholarship, such as recent scholarly objections to the "Q hypothesis" (the view that Matthew and Luke took much of their shared material from a now-lost collection of Jesus' sayings).
  • In Chapter 8, some of the ethical paradoxes in Matthew's Gospel have been highlighted in a new box, allowing students to see at a glance the tensions between ethical principles articulated in the Sermon on the Mount and some of the Gospel writer's later violations of these principles.
  • Chapter 9 features new sections on the importance of Jerusalem and on Luke's emphasis that Christianity was a lawful religion that did not threaten the stability of the Roman Empire. Luke's version of Jesus' prediction of his Second Coming is now more fully analyzed and compared to parallel themes in his account of Christian origins in the Book of Acts (Ch. 13).
  • Chapter 10 further elucidates the significance of John's distinctive doctrine of "realized eschatology."
  • Enhanced coverage of Paul and his letters appears in Chapters 14-17.
  • Updated lists of recommended reading in virtually every chapter include important new bibliographical references, and new entries have been added to the Glossary.
