Description

What is so new about the New Testament? In this volume, Donald Hagner tackles the issue of how distinct early Christianity was from the first-century Judaism from which it emerged. Hagner counters the current and growing trend in New Testament scholarship of playing down any idea of newness in the New Testament and of viewing the New Testament and Christianity as representing a form of sectarian Judaism. He surveys newness in the entire New Testament canon, examining the evidence for points of continuity and discontinuity between formative Judaism and early Christianity. Hagner’s accessible analysis of the New Testament text shows that despite Christianity’s thorough Jewishness, from the beginning dramatic newness was an essential aspect of this early literature. How New Is the New Testament? will appeal to professors, students, and scholars of the New Testament and early Christianity.
