Welcome!

This blog is especially designed for MGVHoffman’s course on the “Old Testament in the New Testament” at LTSG for fall semester, 2008. For class members, it will enable us to talk with each other, but we welcome the rest of the world to look over our shoulders. Please join in the discussion!

Members of the class will be able to start new posts. Everyone (i.e., the class and anyone else) will be able to comment on posts. When you start a new post, be sure to “categorize” your post by adding your initials. (This will allow us to quickly find the posts each person started.) Also try to provide another concise category (e.g., the Bible passage, a theme, …) so that we can keep the posts easily organized and more easily searched.

This is indeed a bit of an experiment, but let’s see how it goes!

UPDATE: BTW, I just figured out how to make this welcome post ‘sticky’ and stay at the top. All other posts will appear chronologically with the newest one right under this one.

Here’s a great explanation for why an ox and ass are so prevalent in the nativity scenes. As you might guess, it is a matter of OT in the NT…

What are we missing?

We have already covered a lot of ground this semester.

  • We have tried to get a sense of the place of the NT within the wide range of biblical and biblically-related literature in the first few centuries BCE and CE. This has included looking at biblical versions (and text critical issues as well), intertestamental literature (OT Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha), NT Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Early Xn Fathers, Philo, Jospehus, and rabbinic literature.
  • We have looked at the exegetical methods of the Jewish and Christian authors of the first century.
  • We have considered what is actually happening or being accomplished when a NT author cites or alludes to an OT text. Prophecy? Typology? Analogy? Simply using biblical language? Fulfillment?
  • We have examined many OT and NT texts to see firsthand how this OT in the NT stuff works.

As we come to the last few weeks of the semester, what questions still remain for you?

Are their topics or issues you had hoped we would cover and haven’t?
