New Studies in Biblical Theology - Preaching in the New Testament (NSBT)

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: New Studies in Biblical Theology - Preaching in the New Testament (NSBT)
Publisher: Intervarsity Press (IVP) - UK
Author: Jonathan Griffiths

Description

Many Christians share the assumption that preaching the word of God is at the heart of God's plans for the gospel in our age, that it is vital for the church's health, and that it is the central task of the pastor-teacher. Many helpful books on preaching are available. The vast majority are concerned with "how-to," but relatively few focus primarily on the character and theology of preaching according to Scripture.

Two key, interrelated questions need to be addressed. First, is there such a thing as "preaching" that is mandated in the post-apostolic context—and, if there is, how is it defined and characterized? Second, how does post-apostolic "preaching" relate to the preaching of the Old Testament prophets and of Jesus and his apostles?

In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume Jonathan Griffiths seeks answers to these questions in the New Testament. In Part One he gives an overview of the theology of the Word of God, surveys Greek terms related to preaching, and looks at teaching concerning the scope and character of other word ministries in the life of the church. In Part Two his exegetical studies concentrate on teaching that relates especially to the post-apostolic context. In Part Three he summarizes the exegetical findings, sets them within the context of biblical theology, and proposes a number of broader theological implications.

Griffiths's accessible, scholarly investigation will be of value to scholars, pastors, preachers, and Bible teachers.

Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

This volume is available individually, or as part of the 48-volume New Studies in Biblical Theology series.


Jonathan Griffiths (PhD University of Cambridge) is Lead Pastor of the Metropolitan Bible Church, Ottawa, Canada. He previously served as an instructor on the Cornhill Training Course at the Proclamation Trust, London. He also served as editor of The Perfect Saviour (IVP).
