Getting into the Text
New Testament Essays in Honor of David Alan Black
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Getting into the Text, the work of great world specialists, comprises studies on New Testament Greek, the choice of the manuscript variants, the semantic analysis of aletheia and pistis, the synoptic issue in Mathew and Luke with respect to Jesus' childhood, the connection between the apocryphal Gospel according to Thomas and the canonical text, the origin of Jesus' speeches in John, Hebrews as a reaction to Wisdom of Solomon, and a comparative study of syntax in Greek and Spanish. The content of the Festschrift is worthy of Professor D.A. Blacks' scientific merits, and its more than appropriate title does not disappoint the reader's expectation."
