This concise guide by a leading New Testament scholar helps readers understand how to better study the multitude of Old Testament references in the New Testament. In the tradition of exegetical handbooks, Beale’s Handbook on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament lays out the basic principles one needs to be an effective and faithful interpreter of the New Testament’s appropriation of the Old Testament. This includes criteria for identifying uses of the OT by NT writers as well as for determining the type of usage (direct quote, allusion, paraphrase, etc). Finally, Beale lays out the theological premises that must be established before one can begin a systematic interpretation. Brief enough to be accessible yet thorough enough to be useful, this handbook will be a trusted guide for all students of the Bible.

Following on the heels of the Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament, and Beale’s landmark A New Testament Biblical Theology, this guide is a perfect aid for students and ministers who are either beginning or have progressed to some degree into this field. Critically important to biblical studies--within the church and the academy--this book provides a reliable framework from which to engage the most serious questions.

"During the last four decades, not a little serious work has been undertaken to understand better how the New Testament cites the Old. Quite a lot of it was written by Greg Beale. Here, however, he keeps the student in mind and provides an introduction to the subject, complete with helpful bibliographies, useful illustrations, and step-by-step demonstrations of how to think through these issues. Not only seminary students but also pastors committed to expository preaching will be hugely thankful for this important handbook." – D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
