More About The New Testament in Antiquity by Gary M. Burge; Lynn H. Cohick; Gene L. Green
 
 
 
Overview
Today many Christians know the basic elements of this story and enjoy an intimate, deeply personal love for numerous passages of the New Testament. However, few understand the breadth of this story, much less how to interpret each book. Many gravitate to familiar texts but don't feel confident interpreting other more difficult chapters. The aims of this book are simple: to assist students to become alert, capable readers of the New Testament---to guide them through its many books, giving not only essential background information but also a digest of the New Testament's most important teachings. Readers will grow in knowledge of the Scriptures by understanding not only their own interpretative contexts, but also the original context of the New Testament. The context of antiquity should control how we understand the New Testament today.
