University academic completes new books

Professor Steve Moyise has just completed a trilogy of books that explore how the New Testament makes use of the Old Testament. Published by SPCK in the UK and Baker Academic in the USA, the previous volumes ('Jesus and Scripture' and 'Paul and Scripture' – both 2010) have received critical acclaim and the third volume, entitled 'Later Writers of the New Testament and Scripture' was published in February 2012.

'Later Writers...' brings to an end a research project begun in 2008. Professor Moyise is also a co-editor of a series that look at how particular Old Testament books (Genesis, Psalms, Isaiah etc.) are used in the New Testament.

In September 2010, Professor Moyise also published 'Jesus and Scripture: Studying the New Testament Use of the Old Testament', which is described as:
"A first-class introduction to the ways in which Jesus used the Scriptures of Israel. . . . Lucid, accessible, and highly engaging, Moyise's survey . . . will be of particular use to students studying the Gospels." Gary W. Burnett, Journal for the Study of the New Testament.

Professor Moyise is an expert on the use of the Old Testament in the New, and in this book he offers a brief but reliable introduction to the use of the Old Testament in the Gospels' portrayals of Jesus.
