The Use of Israel's Scriptures in the New Testament

Jul 12–Jul 16 8:30AM–4:30PM
BIBL 543 2–3 Credits (2 Audit)

Course Description

How should we understand the New Testament's use of Israel’s Scriptures, especially passages that seem to disregard context or use allegory? Rather than attempting to save the New Testament authors from such errors—a method that has contributed to a range of different strategies—we will begin an examination of these passages with the central concern of the Scriptures, namely, the revelation of God's faithful saving character through the person of Christ.
