New directions in the study of the New Testament

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Since the end of the Second World War, the most significant developments in the study of the New Testament have grown from revisions in our understanding of its relationship to the Judaism of the period. These have implications not only for the study of the New Testament itself but also for how we understand its relationship to patristic thought. In turn, these implications are significant for those seeking to bring the segregated fields of theology and New Testament study together. They are, however, only partially realized, because of the fragmentation of New Testament study as a discipline.
