Published in honour of Dr. Ellis for his eightieth birthday and for his contributions to biblical scholarship, this book contains 21 articles written by internationally renowned New Testament scholars. In each article, the writer shares his/her keen insights on a cutting-edge issue in the study of the New Testament, which has been central to Dr. Ellis' research and writings. The topics discussed in the book are diverse, ranging from New Testament history, text, and exegesis to theology and ethics. A number of articles are devoted to investigating how the Old Testament is used in the New Testament, an area to which Dr. Ellis has made the most significant contributions; a few articles are focused on exegetical or hermeneutical issues or authorship issues, and other articles deal with various theological issues including the "New Perspective" on Paul.
