New Studies in Biblical Theology - Thanksgiving – An investigation of a Pauline Theme (NSBT)

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: New Studies in Biblical Theology - Thanksgiving – An investigation of a Pauline Theme (NSBT)
Publisher: Intervarsity Press (IVP) - UK
Author: David W. Pao

Description

"Be thankful" (Colossians 3:15) is a recurring exhortation in the letters of the apostle Paul. No other New Testament writer gives such a sustained emphasis on thanksgiving—and yet, major modern studies of Paul fail to wrestle with it.

David Pao aims to rehabilitate this theme in this comprehensive and accessible study, a New Studies in Biblical Theology volume. He shows how, for Paul, thanksgiving is grounded in the covenantal traditions of salvation history. To offer thanks to God is to live a life of worship and to anticipate the future acts of God, all in submission to the lordship of Christ. Ingratitude to God is idolatry. Thanksgiving functions as a link between theology, including eschatology, and ethics.

Here Pao provides clear insights into the passion of an apostle who never fails to insist on the significance of both the gospel message and the response this message demands.

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.


David W. Pao (Ph.D., Harvard University) is assistant professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has also written Acts and the Isaianic New Exodus (Mohr Siebeck/Baker).
