Urban Legends of the New Testament: 40 Common Misconceptions
1 in stock
Urban Legends of the New Testament surveys forty of the most commonly misinterpreted passages in the New Testament. These 'urban legends' often arise because interpreters neglect a passage's context, misuse historical background information, or misunderstand the Greek language.
For each New Testament text, professor David Croteau describes the popular, incorrect interpretation and then carefully interprets the passage within its literary and historical context. Careful attention is given to sound principles of biblical interpretation to guide readers through the process and reach a more accurate understanding of each text's meaning. By also scanning the QR codes which have been inserted at various points throughout this book, you can view a video of David Croteau addressing a specific urban legend.
With examples from the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles, and Revelation, this book will not only help readers avoid missteps in these forty texts but also provide a model for engaging in correct interpretation of other New Testament passages.
