Christ in the Book of Revelation
by Ian Boxall (November 2021)

For many Christians, the Apocalypse of John (Book of Revelation) remains a closed book. Yet it provides one of the richest resources for christological reflection in the whole New Testament, and for centuries functioned as the Church’s Easter book par excellence, presenting in vivid imagery the victory of the Paschal Lamb. Engaging narrative, historical-critical and reception-historical tools, this proposed volume will introduce readers to the multiple dimensions of Christ as portrayed in the Apocalypse, within the unfolding narrative of John’s visions, and exploring the Jewish and Greco-Roman background to the book’s christological titles and images.

by Ronald D. Witherup

There has been considerable scholarly work in recent years on intertextuality in the Bible, and numerous scholars have been exploring Paul’s complex use of Scripture, whether from the LXX or the MT. In addition to briefly summarizing the state of discussions in this area, the author also explores examples from several letters of Paul’s practice of quoting/using Scripture. Some of the topics explored are: the question of written or oral sources; memorization; allusions vs. quotations; Paul’s understanding of “scripture”; his use of scripture in rhetorical argumentation (Jewish/Greco-Roman); eisegesis vs. exegesis; and what Paul’s use of Scripture might say to us today. The author concentrates on the undisputed letters, and uses some examples from the disputed letters because they constitute Pauline “tradition.” Witherup concludes with a chapter on Scripture and Tradition in the life of the Church today. Some pertinent charts, graphs, and sidebars/boxes enhance the book’s utility for a general audience
