How does the New Testament echo the Old? Which versions of the Hebrew Scriptures were authoritative for New Testament writers? The appearance of concepts, images, and passages from the Old Testament in the books of the New raises important questions about textual versions, allusions, and the differences between ancient and modern meaning.

Written by ten distinguished scholars, Hearing the Old Testament in the New Testament first lays out significant foundational issues and then systematically investigates the use of the Old in the New Testament. In a culminating essay Andreas Kstenberger both questions and affirms the other contributors' findings. These essays together will reward a wide range of New Testament readers with a wealth of insights.

201 - For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
201 - He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent.
110 - The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord'.
205 - But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love ; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
155 - For it is written in the law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain.
144 - You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me: 40 yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.
