How Scripture Interprets Scripture: What Biblical Writers Can Teach Us About Reading the Bible

Michael Graves

Paperback 2021-11-16

Publisher Description

:This book addresses a topic of vital concern to the church: How does the ancient biblical text speak to us today? Michael Graves, an expert in ancient exegesis, describes how Old Testament texts interpret earlier Old Testament traditions, explores New Testament reception, and explains how insights from this process translate into present-day biblical interpretation. Graves clearly explains and illustrates this approach with fulsome discussions of five themes that are addressed in various ways in the Bible: personal responsibility; sacrificial offerings; insiders and outsiders; marriage, polygamy, and divorce; and the afterlife. By attending to the way these topics are addressed throughout the entire biblical witness, we become better interpreters and better teachers, more adept at discerning the Bible's teaching on these topics and others for our modern world.
