For Jesus and his contemporaries, what we now know as the Old Testament was simply the Scriptures-and it was the fundamental basis of how people understood their lives with God. InReading Jesus's Bible John Goldingay discusses five ways in which the New Testament uses the Old Testament. In doing so, he pro-vides a new way for readers today to approach the Old Testament. Along with a systematic overview of how Jesus and the first Christian writers used the Old Testament, illustrated with passages from Matthew, Romans, 1 Corinthians, and Hebrews, Goldingay offers a straightforward introduction to the Old Testament in its own right. Reading Jesus's Bible will shed fresh Old Testament light on Jesus, God, and the church today.
