Book Description :

Introducing the New Testament presents the complex and often challenging texts and history of the New Testament in a clear and informative manner. The book begins with a section that gives readers a clear idea of how to use it most effectively for study and personal research, followed by a chapter which outlines the various manuscript traditions and processes of transmission that resulted in the biblical texts we have before us today. With this groundwork complete, readers are then introduced to all the texts of the New Testament, and to major issues and debates such as the 'Historical Jesus' the 'Synoptic Problem' and current debates surrounding inspiration - how these texts can be seen in both a historical context and in the context of religious faith. The book features maps, chapter summaries, sample essay questions, chapter bibliographies and reading lists, and an annotated glossary of key terms.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The title of this book may be a bit puzzling-An Introduction to the New Testament for Catholics? The New Testament belongs to all Christians, and the modern study of the New Testament has benefited from the contributions by scholars of all Christian denominations. But there are problems with the New Testament that are specific to Catholics. In this volume, Joseph Kelly deals with the concerns of modern Christians reading the Bible and provides an accessible introduction for students. It's a book that teachers can use rather than a book that presents teachers with problems they have to explain. Most New Testament introductions confuse students by talking about the historical Jesus and the historical Paul by discussing Paul before Jesus because Paul came before him in the New Testament writings. Many Catholics also expect to find all of the church's current teachings and practices laid out in the Bible and are confused when they are not. Kelly helps readers to understand what modern scholars say about the individual books by outlining them in the communities that produced them. He explains that we can't understand what roles the New Testament can play in modern life if we don't understand what it meant to the earliest Christians. The New Testament was read by unsophisticated believers. It was accessible then, and it is accessible now. It tells the story of the most remarkable person who ever lived and of his disciples. It includes some of the most famous narratives in the world, some of the most memorable tales, most immoral words, and striking images. It introduces us to great people who moved history, and tells of the now anonymous people who took the difficult step of leaving thereligions of their ancestors and families to become Christians. Kelly shows that in looking at the New Testament we see real people communicating with us, sharing their beliefs, their fears, and their hopes, and our shared humanity bridges any gap. Distant yet familiar, challenging yet comprehensible, the New Testament is a precious heritage, and one that Kelly recommends we must make our own.

A new approach that asks us to ‘defamiliarize’ what we think we know about the New Testament, articulating themes and questions about its study that encourage further reflection and engagement Looks behind the traditional ways in which the NT is “introduced” to critically engage the conceptual framework of the field as a whole Provides a critical intervention into several methodological impasses in contemporary NT scholarship Offers an appraisal of the relationship between economics and culture in the production of NT scholarship Written in a style that is clear and concise, ideal for student readership
