Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"Beale and Carson have given us a volume that will certainly become a standard for all serious Bible readers, ministers, and scholars. We are in their debt. As a preacher, I would especially encourage other preachers to use this volume in honing their understanding of God's Word and in leading their congregations to better understand the Old Testament, the same Scriptures that Jesus taught his disciples. I'm even planning on using this to help select appropriate Scripture readings for public services."
--Mark Dever, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

"There has been a great need for a comprehensive study of the New Testament's use of the Old Testament. This arduous task has now been accomplished by very competent New Testament scholars, resulting in an excellent reference work. It is well thought out and the style makes it easy to use; a must for every serious student of the Bible."

From the Back Cover

An Exploration of Old Testament Quotations, Allusions, and Echoes
Occurring from Matthew through Revelation

"This really is a new sort of commentary! For the first time we are given a continuous exegetical reading of the way each New Testament book quotes, alludes to, and evokes the Old Testament Scriptures. This volume will be an immensely useful resource for all kinds of study of the New Testament."
--Richard Bauckham, University of St. Andrews

"Every scholar would profit by having a copy of this thorough and judicious work on his or her desk. The authors have collected for us an immense amount of material and insight in a relatively short space, and many of us will be grateful for their efforts. This commentary is a profound witness to the unity of the Testaments in the mystery of Christ."
--Francis Martin, Sacred Heart Seminary

"Finally a volume that surveys the use of the Old Testament in each book of the New Testament. Written by top-tier scholars with unsurpassed expertise in New Testament exegesis, these essays model sound engagement with Scripture that quotes Scripture. This excellent collection is a must-read for all who wish to understand how the New Testament writers understood and used their Bible. This long-awaited volume deserves to become a standard text that will hopefully launch a new stage of fresh work in biblical research."
--Karen H. Jobes, Wheaton College

"More than a generation ago, C. H. Dodd and a few other scholars began sowing the seeds of a new and fruitful approach to reading Scripture, by studying the New Testament writers' use of Old Testament texts. The present commentary thus represents the harvest of decades of research into the relationship between the Old and New Testaments. By carefully observing various factors, ranging from the textual to the theological, each contributor shows how the New Testament writers were not only careful readers of the Old Testament but also profound theologians themselves. The scholars on this superb team assembled by Beale and Carson distill many new and remarkable insights for exegesis and theology, all of which serve to demonstrate the explanatory power of this approach for the present and the future. This landmark volume should prove to be an invaluable resource for both the church and the academy--for pastors, teachers, and students alike, whether Protestant or Catholic--and for anyone wanting to go deeper into the heart of sacred Scripture. Indeed, Beale and Carson are to be thanked and congratulated for a momentous accomplishment."
--Scott Hahn, Franciscan University of Steubenville

"Finally we have a work that examines the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament and covers the entirety of the New Testament in a single volume. Pastors, students, and scholars will profit from the careful attention to both the Old and New Testament contexts in which the citations occur, and they will be enriched by the theological depth represented in this important book."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Few areas of New Testament study are as often discussed as the New Testament's use of the Old. There has long been a need for a careful case-by-case treatment, since the use we see in the New Testament is so varied and diverse. This commentary meets that need admirably. It is thorough yet concise, clear yet detailed. All will be led into helpful reflection on this important area of study. Well done to the editors and authors of this useful and unique commentary."
--Darrell L. Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary

This was a gift for someone having difficulty connecting the stories of the New Testament with the long ago stories of the Old Testament. It is an exceptional book extensively researched by Biblical scholars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Info... UPDATED - kindle version is terrible Aug. 17 2015
By grem28 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Really Great information. The only complaint i have is on the kindle edition, it would be so so helpful if they books of the bible were broken out by chapters in an index format so that i could skip straight to the chapter. Kind of a HUGE pain to have to turn page by page to get to what i'm looking for. For example, If i'm studying Luke 15, I could click on the Luke link and it takes me to Lk 1. From there i have to swipe until I get to chapter 15. Very inconvenient. The information in this book is Gold. Love it. Thanks!

Although I think this is an awesome book, the Kindle version is atrocious. It is separated by books of the New Testament but once you click on a book, for example John, navigating is the worst! Say you want to read John 16, get ready to throw in flip your finger for a long time. Please update the Kindle book to use recently released features from Amazon. Or please update and include chapters so that way we could get to the section we need to get to without spending 20 minutes scrolling. Thank you!

1.0 out of 5 stars The kindle edition is very poor Oct. 7 2015
By C. K. Croy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The kindle edition is very poor. All footnotes are converted to end notes. The Scripture index does not include page numbers (?!). This is on top of the normal aggravating issues with kindle such as the inability to scroll pages, omit including citations when copying and pasting, and no way to merge notes into onenote or Evernote. Buy a hardback or logos edition instead.
5.0 out of 5 stars The better the knowledge on Koine Greek the better the advantage Oct. 1 2016
By Emmer Chacon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not any book is really a handbook and a workbook. It is a tool for working on exegesis and intertextuality. It should be used paired with G. K. Beale, Handbook on the New Testament use of the Old Testament and keep handy Stanley E. Porter, Linguistic Analysis of the Greek New Testament: Studies in Tools, Methods and Practice. I teach biblical Hermeneutics at under and graduated level and i have welcomed this tool into my digital library. This is not for reading in a hurry; the reader must take time to read it carefully and ponder its contributions. With 1281 pages of quality exegetical work is a tool to use and come back for consultation once and again. The reader will need at least a basic knowledge of NT Greek and exegesis to take advantage of this tool. The better the knowledge on Koine Greek the better the advantage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Whole Counsel of God May 1 2008
By DocTheology - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At a recent gathering of pastors from across the USA and Canada I was surprised that one VERY well-known speaker from So. California spoke to the pastors about his preaching style, his study habits, and his commentaries. When asked about his lack of preaching from Old Testament books, this pastor noted that he is a New Testament pastor and in his 25+ years has never preached through an Old Testament book, that the era of the Old Testament has no place in New Testament kingdom work. There was a hush like I had never heard (and these are all pastors who love to talk!). This new volume is a fantastic addition to any pastor's library and helps to link the entire counsel of God. Beale and Carson have given us a tremendous gift in the unique style of this reference book and how they build all the New Testament upon the shoulders of those prophets, priests, and sages who had gone before.

As we have seen, the New Testament is replete with uses of the Old Testament. Jesus, himself, was often quoting the Old Testament and the authors show us how the knowledge, culture, and genre of Old Testament books and passages that were useful in the establishment of the church after the resurrection. The authors are quick to remind us that the authors of the New Testament Canon were using Old Testament text to establish the church and then included God's counsel from the ancient eras in their writings back to the churches at Rome, Ephesus, and more.

This book serves a very powerful niche in our sermon preparation, it gives us tools to excite our congregation about the Old Testament which seems so ancient and almost out of place to the 21st Century thinker. Beale and Carson give us the tools to energize a new generation of disciples. I cannot imagine our pastoral libraries without this new work. It serves us as pastors and it serves our congregation as it illuminates the whole counsel of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! Feb. 20 2008
By revtcr - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just got this book and I'm already impressed. The book is over 1200 pages of solid, scholarly output.

From Matthew through Revelation are treatments of quotations, echoes and allusions from the OT.

At the end of each NT book is a bibliography of the sources cited along the way. A great help!

The scholars are not afraid to give their own translation of the Greek text, while consulting other reliable versions of the Bible. I find this extremely helpful, as one who is adept at NT Greek.

DA Carson puts his scholarly touch on most of the Catholic Letters. He is so good.

Overall, this volume represents the best of NT scholarship. If you don't have this book in your collection and not making the most of it, you're depriving yourself of the best treatment to date on this subject, the use of the OT in the NT.

I give 10 stars.
