From the Pastor…Fr. McHugh

Recently, I read Witnesses to the Word: New Testament Studies Since Vatican II by the fine biblical scholar, Daniel Harrington, SJ. The book treats the advances in Scripture studies since Vatican II. I will do a summation of this book in one of my future Scripture sessions. Fr. Harrington, in the well-organized book, offers six chapters, each with ten points, on the advances in key areas of biblical scholarship. The topics include “Interpreting the New Testament” which includes methods of examining Scripture, “The Dead Sea Scrolls and Early Judaism” which treats the influence of these scrolls on modern scholarship, and “Jesus, Prophet of God’s Kingdom” which examines the life, ministry and teaching of Jesus. Harrington also treats the evangelists as authors and how they present Jesus. He does take a short look at the Apocryphal Gospels. New perspectives on St. Paul and his relationship to Judaism are discussed. Harrington deals with New Testament passages that examine Christians in the Roman Empire.
