The author traces the patterns and analyzes the possible reasons why the various writers of the New Testament used certain Jewish Bible personages to illustrate their theology. Beginning with an overview of the relationship of the New Testament to Jewish Scripture, including proof texting, allusion, allegory and typology and a spectrum of scholarship on this subject, this book suggests that the New Testament writers were attempting to affirm their authority and confirm their authenticity by elaborating this central relationship. The book then outlines the frequency with which individual Jewish Bible personages appear in the New Testament. Charts tabulate such appearances and map out their location in the various New Testament writings. The books main task is a study of the 39 personages, in terms of their theological function in the New Testament. An invaluable resource for beginning and advanced students of New Testament.
