    The Lord\u27s Banquet: Resources, Problems and Perspectives from the New Testament

    Get PDF
    (Excerpt) The New Testament provides the fundamental basis for the church\u27s celebration of the Lord\u27s Supper and, at the same time, the major source from which to critique aspects of the church\u27s Eucharistic practice today. It is important to hear the New Testament as carefully as possible, in all its variety, in order to understand the New Testament elements that go to make up contemporary Eucharistic practice and theology. In what I do today I will carry out my role as a New Testament scholar: to hear the New Testament in all its variety and diversity as an aid in understanding the earliest church and as a guide to appropriating that diversity today

    The Continuation of Israel’s Land Promise in the New Testament: A Fresh Approach

    Get PDF
    This article responds to recent evangelical interpreters who have argued that the land promise given to Israel in the Old Testament is no longer in effect based on the scarcity of references to the promise in the New Testament. The paper asserts that the Land Promise is not only present in the New Testament, but even provides a sort of overall theological framework for the New Testament

    Christianity\u27s Boundary-Making Bath: The New Testament Meaning of Baptism, the Sacrament of Unity

    Get PDF
    (Excerpt) Baptism puts us squarely into the significance of Easter, Christ, and the Christian life. When I spoke to you a year ago on the Lord\u27s Supper in the New Testament, it was possible for me to deal at length with every passage in the New Testament that mentions the Lordly Meal. It is quite different with baptism. It is found frequently in New Testament texts-many of them. Indeed, one can say that baptism is more significant to the New Testament church than is the Lord\u27s Supper. We can almost set up a proportion: Baptism is to the early church as the Lord\u27s Supper is to today\u27s church

    Lukan Easter Formation: Living out the Resurrection

    Get PDF
    (Excerpt) We will discuss two types of Easter formation in the early church, with Acts and Luke as guides to our Easter mystagogy. The topic is in one sense natural for a New Testament scholar, since all writers of the New Testament begin theologically from the resurrected Christ, because a Christian\u27s life-style (to use a modem shibboleth) is formed in the New Testament from the event of baptism, and because early Christian parenesis is essentially a realization of life under the Lordship of the Resurrected One. But it also brings some problems

    The Eschatology of the Dead Sea Scrolls

    Get PDF
    The Dead Sea sect represents a unique view of Second Temple Judaism at an important juncture with the beginning of Jewish Christianity. A study of the eschatological views of the sect provides an historical and theological background for comparison with the views of Jesus and of early Jewish Christianity recorded in the New Testament. It further illustrates why Jewish eschatology should be a course of study within Jewish Studies and New Testament studies
