The contents, authored by both veteran and younger scholars, treat methods and canons, Jesus and the Gospels, and Acts and the Epistles
Paul and the scriptures of Israel by Craig A Evans( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is an 'echo' of Scripture? How can we detect echoes of the Old Testament in Paul, and how does their detection facilitate interpretation of the Pauline text? These are questions addressed by this collection of essays from the SBL programme unit Scripture in Early Judaism and Christianity. The first part of the book reports its vigorous 1990 discussion of Richard Hays's 'Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul', including contributions by Craig Evans, James Sanders, William Scott Green and Christiaan Beker, as well as a response by R.B. Hays. The second part of the book studies specific passages where reference is made to the Old Testament explicitly or allusively. The contributors here are James Sanders, Linda Belleville, Carol Stockhausen, James Scott, Nancy Calvert and Stephen Brown. This is the first of a series of volumes from the Scripture in Early Judaism and Christianity unit presenting informed and critical scholarship on the function of older scripture in later scripture

Together these essays show the multiple potential links between canonical criticism and historical, literary, feminist and other approaches in contemporary biblical studies

The monotheizing process : its origins and development by James A Sanders( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam claim to be monotheistic, but none of them actually is; none of the three has yet arrived at the true monotheism the Bible and the Qur'an mandate: that is, belief in there being but One God of All. Each often claims its concept of God is the One God despite the fact that the Bible and the Qur'an insist that the true God is indefinable and incomprehensible. Many passages of the Bible are polytheistic, and yet the Judaism that emerged out of the exile claimed to believe in One God. Critically moving from the older passages through to the later, careful readers ar
Biblical intercontextuality : the Bible is full of itself( Visual )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Challenging the view that one can fully understand the meaning of a biblical verse based solely on that verse alone, Sanders explains the concept of biblical intertextuality. Since the Bible is full of inner references, one must study a single verse along with the verses that foreshadow or refer back to it, as well as the verses that deal with common themes. He cites specific examples of biblical intertextuality and discusses the traditions of scholarship that have used the concept in their work."--Container
