The use of the OT in the NT is a huge topic today in biblical studies. With books like 3 Views, The Commentary on the NT Use of the OT, Hay’s Echoes in the Letters of Paul (and now the Gospels), studies on intertextuality, (Jguo) intertextuality. There are positions on whether the authors are properly using the OT contextually, out of the original context, and now the position that the authors were recreating Israel’s story. Why should we consider what Watts’ has to say? As you may know, I’m taking my M.Div. at SBTS, and I enjoy reading works like these (in my small spare time) so that I can expand my knowledge of the Bible’s depths.
