Studying the New Testament Through Inscriptions

An Introduction

Hendrickson Publishers 2020

Studying the New Testament Through Inscriptions (Hendrickson Publishers, 2020)through Inscriptions is an intuitive introduction to inscriptions from the Greco-Roman world. Inscriptions can help contextualize certain events associated with the New Testament in a way that many widely circulated literary texts do not. This book both introduces inscriptions and demonstrates sound methodological use of them in the study of the New Testament. Through five case studies, it highlights the largely unrecognized ability of inscriptions to shed light on early Christian history, practice, and the leadership structure of early Christian churches, as well as to solve certain New Testament exegetical impasses.

Dr. D. Clint Burnett Burnett (PhD, Boston College) is an adjunct professor of New Testament at Johnson University (Knoxville, TN). His research focuses on interpreting early Christianity in light of the material culture of the cities in which it was established.
