Theology of the New Testament: A Canonical and Synthetic Approach

Availability: Ready to download

Studying the theology of the New Testament can be a daunting task, even to the knowledgeable Bible student or pastor. Each of the twenty-seven books, written by various authors, has its own theological emphasis and nuances. How do we elicit a coherent message from such theological diversity, especially given that some of the theological statements in the New Testament seem Studying the theology of the New Testament can be a daunting task, even to the knowledgeable Bible student or pastor. Each of the twenty-seven books, written by various authors, has its own theological emphasis and nuances. How do we elicit a coherent message from such theological diversity, especially given that some of the theological statements in the New Testament seem to be at odds with one another? Is such an endeavor achievable or even valid?Theology of the New Testament takes a balanced approach in response to these challenges. Frank Thielman presents a theology of the New Testament that is careful to take into account the cultural and historical circumstances surrounding each book and the New Testament as a whole. He not only examines each book’s theological content individually, but also in relation to the rest of the New Testament, particularly within each of the three theological units that comprise the New Testament: the gospels and Acts, the Pauline epistles, and the general epistles and Revelation. This canonical and synthetic approach honors both the theological diversity of the various books and the theological connections between the books. In the end, Thielman finds a unified theological vision of the New Testament, anchored in the centrality of Jesus Christ.Frank Thielman’s Theology of the New Testament is an outstanding achievement. The book is marked by scholarly depth, exegetical rigor, and theological profundity. Both students and professors will profit immensely from this lucid treatment of the theology contained in the New Testament documents. Thomas R. Schreiner Professor of New Testament, The Southern Baptist Theological SeminaryAn accessible presentation of the key theological points of the New Testament books by an accomplished New Testament scholar and teacher. Its clear style, lucid organization, and sound theological insight make it a prime resource for serious students in both the academy and the church. Karen H. Jobes, PhD Associate Professor of New Testament, Westmont College

    Ease of reading aside, I thought this was a great book. That opinion may alter slightly as I start into reading other New Testament theologies (I’ve already got Beale’s in my queue line). But, it won’t change dramatically because Thielman still has plenty to offer and his discussion of Paul’s theology is particularly excellent. While the material is a bit beyond what I can offer my high school students in detail, it does have its share of insights that will find their way into my class in the sp Ease of reading aside, I thought this was a great book.

But, it won’t change dramatically because Thielman still has plenty to offer and his discussion of Paul’s theology is particularly excellent. While the material is a bit beyond what I can offer my high school students in detail, it does have its share of insights that will find their way into my class in the spring. Overall, this book is a well structured and well executed construction of New Testament theology that is sensitive to historical development and scholarly insights, while remaining evangelical and Christ-centered in its focus. Serious students of the New Testament ought to give Thielman’s book a try! See the full review on my blog

    A basic, thematic overview of each individual book, with attempts to make synthetic connections across the NT as a whole. Takes a conservative/evangelical line on most issues, with a good use of footnotes to point to more detailed sources for debate. While I read the book straight through for a class, it might be most useful as a reference text for quick orientation to overall themes and theological emphases of particular NT books (without the depth and technical emphases of a commentary).

    Very dry and not in the good way. I read a good chunk of this book for a couple different classes and could never get into his prose. I don't mind things that are dry and academic, but there were times where he used a whole lot of words to say very little. I largely agree with his theology, approach, and commentary but the book was still only mildly enjoyable. Very dry and not in the good way.

    Just read the first section about the gospels. It was an overview of the themes in each of the gospels and how they were all related. It didn't address questions of text criticism, authorship, or the like. helpful in a general sense of understanding the purpose of the gospel writers and their methods to communicate their message.

    Superb. His "book theologies" of each book in the NT are excellent. His "big picture" chapters were equally valuable, esp. summarizing Paul's theology (ch. 22), summarizing the General Epistles (ch. 33), and "The Theological Unity of the NT" (ch. 34). Superb.

    This is an insightful, yet skilful approach to reading the New Testament. I have not come across many books that are able to expound such deep sanctificational truths while maintaining a healthy academic rigor. I highly recommend this book.
