Foreword by John B. Taylor
On an almost daily basis new discoveries are made that shed light on the New Testament. As these discoveries are published and old material is reevaluated, we get clearer glimpses into real life as it was at the time that the New Testament arose. The New Testament in Its First Century Setting brings together an international group of scholars responsible for much of this cutting-edge research. What all of their essays have in common is that they help readers to better understand the New Testament by illuminating its context and setting.
In opening a window on the world of the New Testament, the authors draw on a wide range of disciplines: ancient history, archaeology, sociology, papyrology, and linguistics alongside copious treatment of ancient literature and rigorous theological reflection. These twenty-one studies cover every major part of the New Testament corpus ' the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles, and Revelation ' and deal with subjects ranging from the meaning of one particular word to the setting, meaning, or authorship of a whole book. In addition, each essay uses material from outside of the New Testament to make an original contribution to our knowledge of the biblical texts themselves.
Presenting the state of the art in New Testament studies, The New Testament in Its First Century Setting is a fitting tribute to Bruce W. Winter, warden of Tyndale House in Cambridge, England. Produced for the occasion of Dr. Winter's 65th birthday, the volume includes a foreword by John B. Taylor, chairman of the Tyndale House Council, and a list of Bruce Winter's publications.
