This volume illuminates Paul's handling of creation stories, Abraham, Moses, the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings, then assesses competing contemporary approaches to Paul's interpretations of Scripture. "Moyise, one of the leading international scholars on the subject of the New Testament's use of the Old Testament, asks how each of the main features of Paul's teaching grows out of and interacts with the Hebrew Scriptures. Moyise illuminates well how Scripture functioned for the first great Christian theologian without ignoring the various questions that such treatment still raises both for students of Paul and for those who ask how Scripture should function today."-- James D. G. Dunn, Emeritus Lightfoot Professor of Divinity, Durham University "Moyise combines his thorough knowledge of the field with his skills as a communicator to provide an eminently accessible and thoroughly up-to-date discussion of Paul's quotations from the Scriptures of Israel and of the scholarly debates surrounding them. It will be one of the first books I will want my students to read on the subject."-- Roy E. Ciampa, associate professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "Steve Moyise, already well known for his work on the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, here provides a clear and accessible guide to Paul's use of Scripture and to recent scholarly discussion of this important topic. Students in particular will welcome this helpful overview, with its lucid explanations and fair survey of the field."-- David G. Horrell, professor of New Testament studies, University of Exeter
-Publisher

There are over one hundred explicit quotations of Scripture in Paul's letters and at least two hundred allusions. The coming of Jesus and the birth of the church caused Paul to look at the Scriptures with new eyes, sometimes clarifying what was written and sometimes reinterpreting it. This volume illuminates Paul's use of the Old Testament, providing a big-picture overview for students of the New Testament. Steve Moyise, a recognized expert on the use of the Old Testament in the New, discusses Paul's handling of creation stories, Abraham, Moses, the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings. He then assesses competing contemporary approaches to Paul's interpretations of Scripture.
