Unsurpassed Research on "Holy Priesthood" Aug 14, 2009
This is a scholarly research of 1 Peter 2:4-10, a passage related to the topics concerning the priesthood of believers, the holiness code, baptism and the temple of God. First of all, Elliott brings up the methodology of his study. An examination of the study is urgently needed by both the Roman Catholic and the Reformed Churches. Then, the author goes into structural analysis of the Petrine passage. Elliott argues that the idea of the "Holy Priesthood" can be rooted out in the OT and the Second Temple Period. This Exodus Formula, as suggested by Elliott, becomes the link starting from Ex. 19:6, through Isa. 61:6, LXX and Targumic Ex 19:6, Jub. 16:18 and 33:20, 2 Maccabees 2:17, and finally ends in the New Testament. Elliott's argument is careful and forceful. Since the book was published in 1966 by Brill, it soon became out of print. I am glad that Wipf and Stock reprints this book, which, I am sure, will be beneficial to many. If you are really looking for a really academic research on the topic of "Holy Priesthood" in 1 Pet 2:4-10, you should not ignore this book.
