9780391042049: Heralds of the Good News: Isaiah and Paul in Concert in the Letter to the Romans (Novum Testamentum Supplements)

In this text-critical, literary, and theological investigation of Paul's interpretation of Isaiah in Romans, it is argued that Paul's citations and allusions evince sustained and careful attention to significant portions of Isaiah, in concert with other scriptural voices. Through a radical rereading of Isaiah, Paul appropriates these prophetic oracles as prefigurations of his own mission to Gentiles while simultaneously appealing to Isaiah as a witness to God's continuing fidelity to Israel. The book examines each of Paul's citations and allusions to Isaiah, situating them both within the milieu of early Jewish interpretive practices and within the context of Paul's unfolding argument in Romans. This volume contributes to the current debate about early Christian interpretation of scripture by tracing the complex and dynamic interrelationship in Paul's letter of Scripture, theology, and mission. This publication has also been published in hardback, please click here for details.

Review:

'"All in all, this is a well-done study that makes a significant contribution to the growing literature on Paul s use of the Scriptures of Israel. [..] ..this book should be considered in any future discussion of Paul s use of the Scriptures of Israel, especially but not only Isaiah."' Kenneth Litwak, "Review of Biblical Literature," 2006 '"Wagner s study is essential reading not only for scholars interested in Paul s use of Scripture but for anyone involved in the study of Paul s thought. [..] Wagner s book remains one of the best books to appear in many years on Paul s use of the Jewish Scriptures."' Christopher Stanley, "Review of Biblical Literature," 2006"
