The introduction of literary intertextuality into biblical studies has led to both discovery and dilemma. This study proposes new definitions of a ~allusiona (TM) and a ~echoa (TM) and a methodology on how to detect them, using the neglected letter of Colossians as a test case.

Litwak challenges previous studies of the use of the Old Testament in Luke-Acts as inadequate. In contrast to previous studies that consider only quotations or obvious allusions, he examines intertextual echoes of the Old Testament at strategic points in Luke-Acts, as well as quotations and allusions and echoed traditions. Thus, this study's database is larger. Previous studies generally argue that Luke's use of the Scriptures is in the service of christology. This leads to the exclusion of scriptural citations, such as those of the temptation (Luke 4.1-13) which have different emphases. Litwak views ecclesiology as the overall purpose behind Luke's use of the Old Testament, but he does not skip or avoid intertextual references that may lie outside an ecclesiological function. Whilst other studies contend that Luke uses the Old Testament according to a promise-fulfillment/proof-form-prophecy hermeneutic, Litwak argues that this fails to account for many of the intertextual references. Other studies often subsume all of Luke's use of the Scriptures of Israel under one theme, such as the 'New Exodus', but this study does not require that every intertextual echo maps to a specific theme. Rather, the many intertextual references in strategic texts at the beginning, middle and end of Luke-Acts, and Luke's use of the texts, are allowed to dictate the 'themes' to which they relate.

As Hays demonstrates, the claim that the events of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection took place "according to the Scriptures" stands at the very heart of the New Testament's earliest message. All four canonical Gospels declare that the Torah and the Prophets and the Psalms mysteriously prefigure Jesus. The author of the Fourth Gospel puts the claim succinctly: "If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me" (John 5:46). Hays thus traces thereading strategies the Gospel writers employ to "read backwards" and to discover how the Old Testament figuratively discloses the astonishing paradoxical truth about Jesus' identity. Attention to Jewish and Old Testament roots of the Gospel narratives reveals that each of the four Evangelists, in their diverse portrayals, identify Jesus as the embodiment of the God of Israel. Hays also explores the hermeneutical challenges posed by attempting to follow the Evangelists as readers of Israel's Scripture --

The exodus—the story of God leading his chosen people out of slavery in Egypt—stands as a pivotal event in the Old Testament. But if you listen closely, you will hear echoes of this story of redemption all throughout God’s Word. Using music as a metaphor, the authors point us to the recurring theme of the exodus throughout the entire symphony of Scripture, shedding light on the Bible’s unified message of salvation and restoration that is at the heart of God’s plan for the world.

From comic books to summer blockbusters, all people enjoy art in some form or another. However, few of us can effectively explain why certain books, movies, and songs resonate so profoundly within us. In Echoes of Eden, Jerram Barrs helps us identify the significance of artistic expression as it reflects the extraordinary creativity and unmatched beauty of the Creator God. Additionally, Barrs provides the key elements for evaluating and defining great art: (1) The glory of the original creation; (2) The tragedy of the curse of sin; (3) The hope of final redemption and renewal. These three qualifiers are then put to the test as Barrs investigates five of the world’s most influential authors who serve as ideal case studies in the exploration of the foundations and significance of great art.

The Conversion of the Imagination contains some of the best work on Paul by first-rate New Testament scholar Richard B. Hays. These essays probe Paul's approach to scriptural interpretation, showing how Paul's reading of the Hebrew Scriptures reshaped the theological vision of his churches. Hays's analysis of intertextual echoes in Paul's letters has touched off exciting debate among Pauline scholars and made more recognizable the contours of Paul's thought. These studies contain some of the early work leading up to Hays's seminal Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul and also show how Hays has responded to critics and further developed his thought in the years since. Among the many subjects covered here are Paul's christological application of Psalms, Paul's revisionary interpretation of the Law, and the influence of the Old Testament on Paul's ethical teachings and ecclesiology.

The story of Jesus as the writers of the New Testament meant it to be told. Astonishingly unlike the New Testament as it has been handed down to us today, this remarkable new translation makes the story come alive as never before. Impelled by the latest archaeological and historical discoveries, eminent scholar Hugh J. Schonfield has returned the New Testament to its own time and place, relating its documents to contemporary literature, customs and beliefs. The first truly historical translation with no theological motivation or devotional purpose, The Original New Testament rediscovers the force and urgency of the original message. Dr. Schonfield systematically corrects mistakes in translation that have been compounded over time, and eradicates later theological developments that he believes were falsely ascribed to the original writers. Here is a work at once passionate in dedication and scholarly in execution. The fresh and very readable translation of The Original New Testament suggests to both Jews and Christians that they have missed something in the story of Jesus of Nazareth. In a very real sense, it re-emphasises the "Jewishness" of the New Testament. And to those of both faiths, it offers new opportunities for understanding and applying the Bible's message. Included are full historical and explanatory notes making this a vivid and inspiring translation which will also support the student of bible studies.

Over the years, Outreach Israel Ministries and Messianic Apologetics have had to field the question, Do you believe that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew? many, many times. Given the complicated spiritual and theological dynamics present within the Messianic movement-one has to really have some courage to say, No, we do not believe that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew. There is, to be sure, no Hebrew New Testament document or fragment of any kind from the broad Biblical period. This stands in stark contrast to the fact that the Greek New Testament, and fragments of the Greek New Testament, are the most widely attested and accessible work of antiquity-even more so than the classical works of Greece and Rome. The claim that the Gospel of Matthew was originally written in Hebrew, has actually been disregarded by many in Biblical Studies. The idea that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of colloquial Hebrew expressions or Hebraisms contained in the New Testament, so-called proof of a written Hebrew original, can be contested. Ultimately, because of much of the Messianic movement's leaders' lack of homework-there are many ideas circulating about a presumed "Hebrew New Testament" which cannot be substantiated. Sorting through this, sifting through data and noise, and evaluating what is fact and what is fiction-is by no means something easy. While seeking to maintain the inspiration, integrity, and reliability of the Greek Apostolic Scriptures-no one wants to be perceived as somehow trying to discount the veracity of the Hebrew Tanach, Hebrew language studies, or even studies in Judaism as somehow illegitimate. Yet, there are ideological questions to be asked about the existence of the Greek Apostolic Scriptures, historical questions to be asked about the logic of Hebrew New Testament proponents, and other significant side-issues to be evaluated. As we seek some resolution to these is

Dearest Readers, warm greetings in Jesus Name, Christendom worldwide is now divided. So many sects, divisions, denominations and churches came into existence due to scriptural error, vested interests of individuals and many schools of thought. There are serious errors and false doctrines intruded into the so called Christian churches from Catholics to trinitarian Pentecostal Churches. There are serious disagreements and thoughts stamped and deeply rooted in the minds of people with regard to the knowledge of God. Some so called "Christians" believe in more than one god like heathen. Some say there are three gods. Some groups say there are two gods, senior god and junior god. The false doctrines and erroneous practices keep going on. Due to this, many are blind to the Biblical truth and running helter skelter. The whole truth was revealed to Jesus' Apostles by the Holy Ghost and recorded in the Holy Bible. If you want to know the truth, please read the Holy Bible with humbleness and prayer. You will find that God will help your heart and mind to see the Biblical truth, without confusion or doubt. The Word of the Lord is settled in Heaven, forever. Seeing the differences of opinion and practices found among so called Christians, I have been forced to read and study the Bible with the help of the Holy Ghost and that Spirit led me to write this book. In this book, I have tried to clear the doubt about the knowledge of God, Oneness of God, Baptism, Son of God, Begotten Son etc. I trust after reading this book the Spirit of the Lord will help you understand that there is only One God. Also you will see that the right baptism is in the Name of Jesus Christ, and the rest of all baptism amongst Christendom is false, untrue and unbiblical. I urge every reader of this book, to read the contents without the church barrier and hedges of your denomination and vet the scriptures quoted here, by yourself, to understand the facts whi
