Gerald F. Hawthorne has not only personally advanced New Testament scholarship, but he has also played a formative role in the lives and work of numerous colleagues and students now working in the field. This volume both honors Hawthorne's career and offers readers an up-to-date look at the academic study of the New Testament.
Written by a group of young and established scholars, several well known in the field of New Testament studies, the book explores topics ranging from lexical studies and the exposition of texts from the Gospels and Epistles to fresh engagements with issues that have been important to Hawthorne. Also including are a foreword by Ralph P. Martin, an introduction on Hawthorne's life and work, and a comprehensive bibliography of Hawthorne's publications.
