Review of Five Views of Christ in the Old Testament edited by Brian J. Tabb and Andrew M. King

For Paul, Christ died and rose “in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Cor 15:3–4). Peter said that the prophets spoke of the “suffering of Christ and the subsequent glories” (1 Pe 1:10–12). Jesus himself affirmed that — “as it is written” — ”the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead” (Luke 24:46). But Christian scholars today disagree on exactly if and how Christ should be found in the Old Testament. I’m grateful for Brian J. Tabb and Andrew M. King for gathering together some of these perspectives in Five View of Christ in the Old Testament.

Or perhaps a louder and more bullish one?

Review: Illustrated Ruth, Esther, Jonah in Hebrew by Timothy C. McNinch

ֿOnce upon a time, each of us learned to read, and for virtually everyone picture books held pride of place. I have fond memories reading and re-reading (and re-reading) the incredible Asterix and Tintin series. So why do adults learn new languages with textbooks? I am currently learning Biblical Hebrew and was pleased to discover the Illustrated Ruth, Esther, Jonah in Hebrew (hereafter Illustrated REJ) by Timothy C. McNinch and GlossaHouse.

Review: Reading Romans After Supersessionism by Brian Tucker

The New Testament After Supersessionism series continues with its third volume, Reading Romans After Supersessionism by Brian J. Tucker. Tucker has written on 1 Corinthians, social identity, and diversity within the people of God. Perhaps unsurprisingly, then, he believes others have neglected the importance of identity formation in the letter due to an over-emphasis of salvation theology.

I’m currently in one of the busiest seasons of my life, but I wanted to take some time to highlight the newly released Logos 8 before it isn’t so “newly released!”
