The purpose of this second edition is to help readers come to a critically informed understanding of the Old Testament as the church's scripture.

At the same time, they introduce the Old Testament witness in a manner that honors the importance of biblical scholarship in helping students engage the variety of theological voices within the Old Testament.

Much of the Old Testament seems strange to contemporary readers. However, as we begin to understand how ancient people viewed the world, the Old Testament becomes more clearly a book that stands within its ancient context as it also speaks against it. John Walton provides here a thoughtful introduction to the conceptual world of the ancient Near East. Walton surveys the literature of the ancient Near East and introduces the reader to a variety of beliefs about God, religion, and the world. In helpful sidebars, he provides examples of how such studies can bring insight to the interpretation of specific Old Testament passages. Students and pastors who want to deepen their understanding of the Old Testament will find this a helpful and instructive study.

Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament

Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament

The Gospels tell us clearly that Jesus himself, along with his earliest followers, understood who he was and what he came to do in the light of the story of Israel as told in the pages of the Old Testament.

We cannot know Jesus without knowing his story. And that story began long before Jesus was born in Bethlehem. The Gospels tell us clearly that Jesus himself, along with his earliest followers, understood who he was and what he came to do in the light of the story of Israel as told in the pages of the Old Testament. Like them, we too will find that our own understanding of both Jesus and the Old Testament is transformed as we see each in the light of the other. Engaging with the Scriptures, Christopher J. H. Wright uncovers Jesus’ self- understanding as Son of Man and Son of God, following the path and fulfilling the call that God had placed before Israel. Through this we discover that the deeper we go into understanding the Old Testament, the closer we come to the heart of Jesus. In this revised and updated second edition Wright digs deeper into the Old Testament revealing the God whom Jesus embodied. Each chapter is followed with questions and exercises, which can be used either in personal study or in group discussion.

The Comprehensive New Testament only requires a sixth grade reading level and is the most accurate translation of the Nestle-Aland 27th edition Greek New Testament ever produced. The Nestle-Aland 27th edition is overwhelmingly trusted by Catholic and Protestant churches to represent the oldest surviving Greek manuscripts. The Comprehensive New Testament has complete textual variant mapping for 20 English versions: American Standard Version 1901 Douay-Rheims American Edition 1899 translation of the Vulgate English Standard Version 2001, 2007 Holman Christian Standard Bible 1999 David Stern s Jewish New Testament 1998 King James Version 1611, 1769 Blayney revision Murdock s translation of the Peshitta 1851 New American Bible, revised 1991 New American Standard Bible 1960 New American Standard Bible, 1995 revision New English Translation 2004 New International Version 1984 New Jerusalem Bible 1985 New King James Version 1982 New Living Translation, 2nd Edition 2004 New Revised Standard Version 1989 Revised English Bible 1989 Revised Standard Version, 2nd Edition 1971 Today s English Version (Good News Bible) 1966 The Living Bible (paraphrase) 1971 Over 15,000 variations in ancient manuscripts are translated in the footnotes. Uncertain readings are clearly marked in brackets. Readability, accuracy, and formal equivalence are empirically measured and charted for the 20 English versions and compared to The Comprehensive New Testament. Readability is measured using the Coleman-Liau scoring system in Readability Studio version 1.2.0.0, Copyright 2007. Accuracy and formal equivalence are measured by comparing each verse from the different versions to the Nestle-Aland 27th edition Greek New Testament. Cross references are arranged by topic, passage, and verse. Highly significant parallels are quoted in special highlight boxes throughout the cross reference index. The cross reference index includes over 40,000 references for: Old and New Testaments Old Testament Apocrypha Apostolic and Patristic Writings Dead Sea Scrolls Dhammapada Epic of Gilgamesh Golden Verses of Pythagoras Greek Literature Nag Hammadi Library New Testament Apocrypha Pseudepigrapha Rabbinic Writings Tacitus The Egyptian Book of the Dead Works of Josephus Works of Philo Works of Plato
