There are many investigations of the Old Testament priests and the New Testament?s appropriation of such imagery for Jesus Christ. There are also studies of Israel?s corporate priesthood and what this means for the priesthood of God?s new covenant people. However, such studies are less frequently connected with each other: key interrelations are missed, and key questions are not addressed.

In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Andrew S. Malone makes two passes across the tapestry of Scripture, tracing these two distinct threads and their intersection with an eye to the contemporary Christian relevance of both themes in both Testaments.

Malone shows how our Christology and perseverance as God?s people in an unbelieving world are substantially enhanced by the way the book of Hebrews pastorally depicts Christ?s own priesthood. Furthermore, Christians better understand their corporate identity and mission by discerning both the ministry of individual Old Testament priests and Israel?s corporate calling. Combining the various biblical emphases on priesthood in one place provides synergies that are too easily disregarded in atomizing, individualistic Western societies.

Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.
