Synopsis: While the relationship between Second Temple Jewish exegesis and early Christian exegesis as demonstrated in the New Testament is universally recognized, the reasons for their similarities and differences are often elusive. Donald H. Juel in Messianic Exegesis seeks to unknot this tangled web of interpretation.
Juel's thesis is simple: Christianity's origins are rooted in the earliest Christian interpretations of Israel's Scriptures. The difficulty resides in showing how these distinctive interpretations arose. Juel argues that the events of Jesus' life form the fulcrum for the Christian re-reading of Jewish Scripture. In particular, Juel shows how Christian belief in a crucified and risen Messiah guided both the selection and appropriation of Old Testament texts―texts like 2 Samuel 7, Daniel 7, and Psalms 2 and 110. With the confession "Jesus is the Messiah" as the central claim of Christianity, Juel is able to show the fluidity of contemporary Jewish exegesis while also making the anomalous uses of Scripture within the early Christian community understandable. Christians proclaimed Jesus as Messiah throughout their exegesis and thereby defined their emerging community through the way they read Scripture.
About the Author: Donald H. Juel is Richard J. Dearborn Professor New Testament Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary, New Jersey.

Book Description Augsburg Fortress Publishers January 1998, 1998. Paper Back. Condition: New. In what manner did early Christian reflection make use of the Scriptures of Israel? Donald Juel argues that the primary use of the Scriptures by the early Christian community was to enable them to understand the gospel and to clarify the implications of faith in Jesus for one's relationship with Israel's God and with the world. Juel bases his reflection on the arguments of his teacher, Nils Dahl, who taught that the confession of Jesus as Messiah can be derived neither from Jesus' teaching about Himself recorded in the Gospels nor from Jewish conceptions of messiahship. Rather the events of the last week of Jesus' ministry gave birth to a confession that determined the interpretive agenda for the new community born at the resurrection. Juel focuses attention on both specific passages as well as the character of scriptural interpretation in the first century, comparing it with the postbiblical scriptural exegesis found in the Jewish sources and offering a model of the ways in which certain biblical passages were used to interpret Jesus Christ and His ministry.
