The 'Dictionary of Paul and his letters' is a one-of-a-kind reference work. Following the format of its highly successful companion volume, the 'Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels', this Dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and laypeople abreast of the established conclusions and significant recent developments in Pauline scholarship. No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship. In a field that recently has undergone significant shifts in perspective, the 'Dictionary of Paul and His Letters' offers a summa of Paul and Pauline studies. In-depth articles focus on individual theological themes (such as law, resurrection and Son of God), broad theological topics (such as Christology, eschatology and the death of Christ), methods of interpretation (such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches), background topics (such as apocalypticism, Hellenism and Qumran) and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature (such as early catholicism, the centre of Paul's theology, and Paul and his interpreters since F. C. Baur). Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters, to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today. The 'Dictionary of Paul and His Letters' takes its place alongside the 'Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels' in presenting the fruit of evangelical New Testament scholarship at the end of the twentieth century - committed to the authority of Scripture, utilising the best of critical methods, and maintaining dialogue with contemporary scholarship and challenges facing the church.

The 'Dictionary of New Testament Background' joins the 'Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels', the 'Dictionary of Paul and his Letters' and the 'Dictionary of the Later New Testament and its Developments' as the fourth in a landmark series of reference works on the Bible. In a time when our knowledge of the ancient Mediterranean world has grown, this volume sets out for readers the wealth of Jewish and Greco-Roman background that should inform our reading and understanding of the New Testament and early Christianity. 'The Dictionary of New Testament Background', takes full advantage of the flourishing study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and offers individual articles focused on the most important scrolls. In addition, the Dictionary encompasses the fullness of second-temple Jewish writings, whether pseudepigraphic, rabbinic, parables, proverbs, histories or inscriptions. Articles abound on aspects of Jewish life and thought, including family, purity, liturgy and messianism. The full scope of Greco-Roman culture is displayed in articles ranging across language and rhetoric, literacy and book benefactors, travel and trade, intellectual movements and ideas, and ancient geographical perspectives. No other reference work presents so much in one place for students of the New Testament. Here an entire library of scholarship is made available in summary form. The Dictionary of New Testament Background can stand alone, or work in concert with one or more of its companion volumes in the series. Written by acknowledged experts in their fields, this wealth of knowledge of the New Testament era is carefully aimed at the needs of contemporary students of the New Testament. In addition, its full bibliographies and cross-references to other volumes in the series will make it the first book to reach for in any investigation of the New Testament in its ancient setting.

A companion series to the acclaimed Word Biblical Commentary.Finding the great themes of the books of the Bible is essential to the study of God’s Word and to the preaching and teaching of its truths. These themes and ideas are often like precious gems: they lie beneath the surface and can only be discovered with some difficulty. While commentaries are useful for helping readers understand the content of a verse or chapter, they are not usually designed to help the reader to trace important subjects systematically within a given book a Scripture. The Word Biblical Themes series helps readers discover the important themes of a book of the Bible. This series distills the theological essence of a given book of Scripture and serves it up in ways that enrich the preaching, teaching, worship, and discipleship of God’s people.Volumes in this series:• Written by top biblical scholars• Feature authors who wrote on the same book of the Bible for the Word Biblical Commentary series• Distill deep and focused study on a biblical book into the most important themes and practical applications of them• Give reader’s an ability to see the “big picture” of a book of the Bible by understanding what topics and concerns were most important to the biblical writers• Help address pressing issues in the church today by showing readers see how the biblical writers approached similar issues in their day• Ideal for sermon preparation and for other teaching in the churchWord Biblical Themes are an ideal resource for any reader who has used and benefited from the Word Biblical Commentary series, and will help pastors, bible teachers, and students as they seek to understand and apply God’s word to their ministry and learning.

New Creation in Paul s Letters and Thought

In Dictionary of Paul and His Letters, 695–99. Edited by Gerald F. Hawthorne et al. Downers Grove, IL and Leicester: InterVarsity Press. Potter, H. D. 1986.

As a biblical motif, 'new creation' resonates throughout the pages of the Jewish and Christian scriptures, and occupies a central place in the apostle Paul's vision of the Christian life. Yet the biblical and extra-biblical occurrences of this theme vary widely in meaning, referring to either a new cosmos, a new community, or a new individual. Beginning with the Old Testament and working through the important texts of Second Temple Judaism, Moyer V. Hubbard focuses on how the motif functions in the argument, strategy, and literary structure of these documents, highlighting its role as the solution to the perceived plight. He then explores in detail which senses of the term Paul intends in Galatians 6.15 and 2 Corinthians 5.17, concluding that 'new creation' in Paul's letters describes the Spirit-wrought newness of the person in Christ, and is fundamentally anthropological in orientation.

They are included in conversations about early Jewish and Christian apocalypticism. New insights are coming from examination of the religious, socio-cultural, and political contexts of Roman Thessalonica. And, looking back, these letters have played an important role in the development of Christian eschatology. This volumes serves as an up-to-date guide to these academic discussions and debates and much more.

Colossians The Church s Lord and the Christian s Liberty

The predominant theme of the book, as of the epistle, is the glory and Lordship of the risen Christ, in whom Christian believers have come to fullness of life.

How can a letter written over 1900 years ago to a Christian group in a small town of Asia Minor mean anything to us? But if Colossians is a word from a God who does not change, and is therefore relevant to His people in every age, how are we to understand and interpret Paul's thought and expression today? Dr. Ralph Martin tackles this problem by asking what the apostle meant when he set out to instruct, correct and exhort the original readers of the epistle. From this inquiry he deduces certain principles of belief and conduct which may still be applied even though our situation differs in external details from that in which the Colossian Christians found themselves. The underlying intellectual and religious question is the same--what is man's relation to the cosmos and the powers that rule it? The predominant theme of the book, as of the epistle, is the glory and Lordship of the risen Christ, in whom Christian believers have come to fullness of life. Professor Martin examines the Colossian heresy, and shows that life in Christ brings complete liberation from mental and spiritual bondage to those merely human mystical notions that had only an appearance of wisdom. From doctrine he moves on, with Paul, to the therefore of everyday Christian conduct, in the context of family relationships, prayer, and the Church's mission in today's world. So far from being out-of-date or irrelevant, the Epistle to the Colossians might well have been written (as indeed in one sense it was!), for our modern space-age. It shows the person of Jesus Christ as the answer to humanity's questioning about the cosmos of which we form such a frighteningly insignificant part. Above all it sets out the Jesus of history as the Lord of glory, the Master of time and space, and shows the essential continuity between the two. It is Professor Martin's first aim to make the background and the message of the Epistle clear in its original setting, and then to show its particular relevance to the present day.
