Isaiah in the New Testament brings together a set of specially commissioned studies by authors who are experts in the field. After an introductory chapter on the use of Isaiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls and second temple literature, each of the New Testament books that contain quotations from Isaiah are discussed: Matthew, Mark, Q, Luke-Acts, John, Romans & Galatians, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Hebrews, 1 Peter, Revelation. The book provides an overview of the status, role and function of Isaiah in the first century. It considers the Greek and Hebrew manuscript traditions and offers insights into the various hermeneutical stances of the New Testament authors and the development of New Testament theology.
'This volume illustrates both the promise and the challenges of the critical approach in question....these studies provide a comprehensive introduction to the Rezeptionsgeschichte of the book of Isaiah in early Christian texts. The footnotes offer a wealth of references to further secondary literature....it is immensely helpful to have such a focused compendium delineating the influence of a particular biblical text on the thinking of the early church.'
