Review:

''Hays opens new and striking vistas on texts we thought we knew - and, particularly, on the early church's remarkable belief in Jesus as the embodiment of Israel's God.'' --N. T. Wright

''Few people are better qualified than Hays to take us right inside the ways the Gospels interpret the Old Testament. And, as though that were not enough for one short book, his hermeneutical quest also delivers a christological result. He shows how, precisely in their reading of the Old Testament, each of the Gospels in its own distinctive way presents Jesus as the very embodiment of the God of Israel. Intertextuality and high christology turn out to be two sides of a coin.'' --Richard Bauckham, Emeritus Professor, University of St Andrews

From the Author:

Richard B. Hays is Dean and Professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity School. His previous publications include Reading the Bible Intertextually (2009), The Moral Vison of the New Testament (1997), First Corinthians (Interpretation Bible Commentaries, 1997) and Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul (1993).

Book Description SPCK Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The claim that the events of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection took place 'according to the Scriptures' stands at the heart of the New Testament's earliest message. All four canonical Gospels declare that the Torah, Prophets and Psalms mysteriously prefigure Jesus. In this ground-breaking new book, Hays traces the strategies the Gospel writers employ to 'read backwards', showing how the Old Testament figuratively discloses the astonishing truth about Jesus' identity. Written by one of the world's most widely respected writers on the New Testament Shows how a close reading of the Gospels points unmistakably to an early belief in the divinity of Jesus A fascinating and compelling sequel to the author's critically acclaimed Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul.
