Kort biografi
John Goldingay is the David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament in the School of Theology at the Fuller Theological Seminary in the United States. Prior to this he was principal and a professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at St John’s Theological College in Nottingham. He is the author of many books, including Old Testament Theology Vol. 1, Walk On (2002), as well as commentaries on Daniel, Isaiah and Psalms. He holds membership in the Society of Biblical Literature and serves on the editorial board for the Library of Hebrew Bible/ Old Testament Studies.



Maybe there's not as much new in the NT as we think

Goldingay argues that the First Testament (OT) tells us pretty much all we need to know about God, and that the NT doesn't really add much in that regard. The God of the FT is embodied in Jesus, and it is that truth, along with what Jesus does, that is what's new in the NT. Hence, the assumption that we only learn of God's gracious and merciful nature in and through Jesus is simply false. The FT reveals this sufficiently. Jesus was more reminding people of what they already knew from the FT, and not revealing something new. Any idea that the FT can be unhitched from the NT lose plausibility in this perspective.

Goldingay's argument will certainly challenge common assumptions, but his careful reading of the FT text serves to support his claims. His exegetical insights provided in this volume will serve as a valuable resource for better understanding the NT and theology.

Styles wise, I found the book started off slow (although maybe it was just me). But the insights and implications of his argument became more engaging the further I progressed.

I found this excellent as a companion to work through Exodus and Leviticus in my daily reading. Goldiingay’s translation shed fresh light on the text, and his comments and insights were really helpful. He managed communicate scholarly insights in a very accessible way. My only slight negative would be that, once or twice the comments were slightly contrived as though he had tweeted a certain amount every day to meet a deadline and had to come up with something to say. Having said that, some of his insights in Leviticus were profound and helped me significantly during a really dark time.… (mer)

Highly regarded Old Testament theologian John Goldingay is often asked about the interpretation of the Bible, about the way we are to understand the stories in the Bible, about the relationship between the Old Testament and the New, and so on. In this volume he explores twenty-three questions related to biblical interpretation, articulating creative, provocative explanations for today's church. The book is divided into four parts: concerning Scripture as a whole; concerning narrative; concerning the Old Testament as a whole; and concerning the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings. Students of the Old Testament, pastors, and laypeople will value this work.… (mer)
