Item description for Christ and the Future in New Testament History (Supplements to Novum Testamentum) by E. Earle Ellis...
Christology and eschatology form a double-core conception in the New Testament that enables one to understand other themes radiating out from it. The present volume addresses fifteen topics within this central core, seven on 'the person of Jesus', and eight on 'this age and the age to come'. The essays interact with and further discussion on disputed topics in contemporary New Testament Studies, including the historical Jesus and the Gospels; deity christology in the Synoptics and in the Pauline writings; the meaning of resurrection in the teaching of Jesus, the Sadducees and Qumran; eschatology in Luke's writings and the structure of Pauline eschatology; New Testament teaching on hell; and other christological and eschatological motifs. Three concluding pieces provide the historical and hermeneutical framework from which the theological studies proceed.

A Landmark in New Testament Studies Apr 11, 2000
In Christ and the Future in NT History, professor Ellis brings under scrutiny some of the most controversial areas in NT studies. The two major sections of his book, dealing with christology and eschatology, collect Ellis's previously published articles on a number of highly disputed issues among NT scholars, such as: the perennial question of the historical Jesus, Christ's use of the Old Testament, the christology of John, Jesus and the resurrection, the intermediate state and the final destiny of the wicked, Pauline anthropology, and prophecy and tongues in the NT history. The book ends with an insightful section on the dating, the historicity and the canonization of the NT documents. Finally, the author tackles also with the foundational question of the relation between the Word of God and the Christian scriptures. Exegetical insights, historical background details, theological arguments and philosophical presuppositions, all of these make up a book that will be more than sure much discussed (and debated) in the years to come. This is due (if for no other reason) to the fact that Earl Ellis offers not only well informed and very articulate arguments, but especially because of his original perspective on quite a number of such issues. To mention only two of them, take Ellis' original view on the intermediate state in 2 Cor 5:1-10, and his treatment of the NT doctrine of hell. Such "departures" from the so-called "orthodoxy" (?) place him in a minority (yet growing) camp among those Evangelical scholars who reject the Greek based body-soul dualism as well as the notion of an unending punishment of the unsaved. One needs only to hope that in the near future, professor Ellis will come up with a more refined and popular version of his articles, (and at a more decent price!), so that the fruit of his research will impact not only the scholar but also the interested layperson.

WOW Jan 24, 2000
Dr. Ellis, research professor of Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, is outstanding in this volume, as he is in all of his books. He has brought more credit back to American theologians. He is well respected in Europe (mostly Germany where he studied) as well he should be. This work is unbelievable. A must for any pastor, preacher, teacher, or general student of the Bible. A word of warning, this is not for the casual reader of the Bible, though some of Dr. Ellis' books are written for lay people, this is not one of them. Have a background in formal theological education (such as Greek, Hebrew, Theology, etc. . .) or have a very good ability to look up words in a dictionary. This book is nothing less than stupendous. If you care at all about academic study of the Word, this book is cheap! You must buy it. Sell any books you have to get it! Also, buy his book "The Making of The New Testament Documents" it is more money, barely, but a good buy too!
