Seeking to bridge the existing gap between biblical studies and systematic theology, this distinctive series offers section-by-section exegesis of the New Testament texts in close conversation with theological concerns. Written by respected scholars, the THNTC volumes aim to help pastors, teachers, and students engage in deliberately theological interpretation of Scripture.
In this commentary on Jude and 2 Peter, Ruth Anne Reese explores the theological and literary meaning of the text with an emphasis on theology for the church today. She seeks to meld together the best tools derived from the disciplines of both biblical studies and theology.
2 Peter and Jude begins with a brief introduction to the two books and is followed by a paragraph by paragraph look at each text. In the first section the meaning of particular words is explored and elements of history, sociology, and literary study are brought together to help illumine the text. The second--and slightly longer--section studies the themes of the books from an explicitly theological angle, then at how these themes are played out in the whole of the biblical canon. This canonical reading leads to the culmination of the commentary, which addresses the themes of the individual books in the context of contemporary theological thinking related to the particular issues that have been raised.
Reese brings together insights from the best of biblical scholarship with the work of theologians, both contemporary and ancient. The combination of disciplines leads to new insights on such issues as judgment, community living, and the relationship between faith and ethics.
