This book aims to provide advanced students of biblical studies, seminarians, and academicians with a variety of intertextual strategies to New Testament interpretation. Each chapter is written by a New Testament scholar who provides an established or avant-garde strategy in which:
1) The authors in their respective chapters start with an explanation of the particular intertextual approach they use. Important terms and concepts relevant to the approach are defined, and scholarly proponents or precursors are discussed.
2) The authors use their respective intertextual strategy on a sample text or texts from the New Testament, whether from the Gospels, Acts, Pauline epistles, Disputed Pauline epistles, General epistles, or Revelation.
3) The authors show how their approach enlightens or otherwise brings the text into sharper relief.
4) They end with recommended readings for further study on the respective intertextual approach.
This book is unique in providing a variety of strategies related to biblical interpretation through the lens of intertextuality.
