Little Help: The Old Testament in the New Testament

Do you have any favorite resources concerning allusion to the Hebrew Bible in the New Testament? It could be books, essays, or articles.

I’m thinking of things like Richard Hays’ Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul (Yale, 1989) or J. Ross Wagner’s Heralds of the Good News: Isaiah and Paul ‘in Concert’ in the Letter to the Romans (Brill, 2002), or Thomas R. Hatina’s In Search of a Context: The Function of Scripture in Mark’s Narrative (Sheffield, 2002).

Do you have any favorites about the OT in the NT? And if so, what makes them good?

  2. Hays is my favorite but on allusion in general see, Robert Alter, _The Pleasures of Reading in an Ideological Age_ (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1989), 112-16.

  3. Another great source is Lachs Rabbinic Commentary on the New Testament. It’s a great resource for linguistic affinities and traditional interpretations.
