About-

In this paperback edition of an important historical study, E. Earle Ellis examines the Old Testament canon in the early church and biblical interpretation in the New Testament. He writes from the conviction that "the use of the Old Testament by the New Testament writers is the primary key to their theology and, thus, to the message of God that they taught the early church and that they continue to teach the church today."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The author's work on a critical and current problem opens many questions in a fresh and vigorous manner," writes Jacob Neusner, distinguished Research Professor of Religion and Theology at Bard College and Senior Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Theology at Bard. "The work is a standard on the day of its publication."
