New Studies in Biblical Theology - Slave of Christ – A New Testament Metaphor for total devotion to Christ (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Slave of Christ – A New Testament Metaphor for total devotion to Christ (NSBT)

by Murray J. Harris

The New Testament finds many ways to depict the relationship of Christians and their Lord. They are his disciples, sons, daughters and friends. But it is perhaps too little recognized that they are also his slaves. In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Murray J. Harris sets out to uncover what it means to be a slave of Christ. H… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Sealed with an Oath: Covenant in God's Unfolding Purpose (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Sealed with an Oath: Covenant in God's Unfolding Purpose (NSBT)

by Paul R Williamson

Paul R. Williamson looks at the role of the covenant concept in Scripture and the meaning of this terminology. He then sets the idea of covenant in the context of God's universal purpose, and traces the idea through Noah and the patriarchs, the nation of Israel and the kingship of David. Lastly, he shows how the new covenant is anticipated in the Old Tes… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Hearing God's Words – Exploring biblical spirituality (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Hearing God's Words – Exploring biblical spirituality (NSBT)

by Peter Adam

Many discussions of Christian spirituality draw on a range of traditions and "disciplines." Little attention, however, appears to have been given to the Bible itself for its teaching on this theme or as a source of spirituality. Similarly, it is commonly assumed that, when it comes to spirituality, the evangelical tradition has little to offer. &… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - God's Mediators: A Biblical Theology of Priesthood (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - God's Mediators: A Biblical Theology of Priesthood (NSBT)

by D. A. Carson and Andrew S Malone

There are many investigations of the Old Testament priests and the New Testament’s appropriation of such imagery for Jesus Christ. There are also studies of Israel’s corporate priesthood and what this means for the priesthood of God’s new covenant people. However, such studies are less frequently connected with each other: key interrelations are missed… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Finding Favour in the Sight of God – A theology of wisdom literature (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Finding Favour in the Sight of God – A theology of wisdom literature (NSBT)

by Richard Belcher

There has been an explosion of interest in wisdom literature, and many studies are now available. There is every opportunity for people to "get wisdom, get insight" (Prov. 4:5). However, in today's world it seems the practical sensibilities that come from wisdom are found in very few places. Wisdom literature is needed now more than ever. By walk… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Exalted Above the Heavens: The Risen and Ascended Christ (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Exalted Above the Heavens: The Risen and Ascended Christ (NSBT)

by Peter C Orr

Christians usually focus on what Jesus has done (his life, death and resurrection) and what he will do (his second coming and eternal reign). While there has been something of a revival of interest in his ascension, studies of Jesus in his exalted state are relatively rare. However, the Christ that Christians trust in, relate to and love is not only the one … Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Contagious Holiness: Jesus' Meals with Sinners (NSBT)

Honored in 2006 as a "Year's Best Book for Preachers" by Preaching magazine.

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Bound for the Promised Land (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Bound for the Promised Land (NSBT)

by Oren Martin

Just as the Old Testament book of Genesis begins with creation, where humans live in the presence of their Lord, so the New Testament book of Revelation ends with an even more glorious new creation where all of the redeemed dwell with the Lord and his Christ. The historical development between the beginning and the end is crucial, for the … Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Adopted into God's Family: Exploring a Pauline Metaphor (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Adopted into God's Family: Exploring a Pauline Metaphor (NSBT)

by Trevor J Burke

The relationship between God and his people is understood in various ways by the biblical writers, and it is arguably the apostle Paul who uses the richest vocabulary. Unique to Paul's writings is the term huiothesia, the process or act of being "adopted as son(s)." It occurs five times in three of his letters, where it functions as a ke… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - A Clear and Present Word: The Clarity of Scripture (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - A Clear and Present Word: The Clarity of Scripture (NSBT)

by Mark D Thompson

By almost any measure, a bold and confident use of the Bible is a hallmark of Christianity. Underlying such use are a number of assumptions about the origin, nature and form of the biblical literature, concerning its authority, diversity and message. However, a lack of confidence in the clarity or perspicuity of Scripture is apparent in Western Chri… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus: Luke's Account of God's Unfolding Plan (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus: Luke's Account of God's Unfolding Plan (NSBT)

by Alan J Thompson

When the book of Acts is mentioned, a cluster of issues spring to mind, including speaking in tongues and baptism with the Holy Spirit, church government and practice, and missionary methods and strategies. At the popular level, Acts is more often mined for answers to contemporary debates than heard for its natural inflections. Instead of … Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - 'Return To Me': A Biblical Theology of Repentance (NSBT)

by Mark J. Boda

"Return to me, says the LORD of hosts, and I will return to you," (Zech 1:3 ESV). Repentance concerns the repair of a relationship with God disrupted by human sin.
