Item description for A Profound Mystery: The Use of the Old Testament in Ephesians (Novum Testamentum , Suppl. 85) by Thorsten Moritz...
The primary focus of this study is the question of the extent and impact of Old Testament traditions in Ephesians. A close examination of the range of quotations, allusions and echoes found in the epistle shows that the Old Testament influence was greater and more deliberate than has hitherto been assumed. The main part of the book is a thorough exegetical study of various aspects of the question, ranging from identification of the relevant Old Testament texts to an examination of the ways in which they are appropriated and applied in the New Testament context. A number of implications emerge for our understanding of the letter's intended readership, and these are illuminating for the assessment of the epistle's relationship to the letter to the Colossians.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Profound Mystery: The Use of the Old Testament in Ephesians (Novum Testamentum , Suppl. 85)?
Great insights and depth of biblical research Dec 10, 2002
I had the privilege of studying biblical hermeneutics under Dr. Moritz and this book is an excellent synthesis of his research and it's practical application. This book has solid explainations of some of the most difficult texts in Ephesians and the word that comes to mind is "refreshing"! This book is solid in it's scholarship and it's commitment to the authority of Scripture. Expensive but a must have/read for the serious student of Ephesians and Pauline letters.
