Confident and imaginative : scripture & hermeneutic in the Johannine passion narrative and today
MetadataShow full item record
There have been a number of significant contributions to the study of the use of the Hebrew Scriptures in the New Testament (eg Dodd, 1950; Lindars, 1961; Longenecker, 1977; Ellis, 1992; Moyise, 2001), including those focused more specifically on the use of the Old Testament by the writer of the Fourth Gospel (Hanson, 1991; Schuchard, 1992; Menken, 1996; Obermann, 1996). All of these studies have emphasised one or more of the following concerns: text, source, appropriation techniques and faithfulness to the original context; the purpose of each contributor has been to attempt to identify a common objective in the New Testament writers' use of the Old Testament in their own writings.
