NT Use of the OT -- Test Your View!

NT Use of the OT -- Test Your View!

by: zondervanacademic

Only 7 questions long, this quiz reveals your view of how the NT authors understood and used the OT in their writings. Though a simplification of a complex topic, it places participants into one of three categories (or "views"). It's meant to be fun and informative. For a full treatment of the subject, see the book "Three Views of the New Testament Use of the Old Testament" (November, 2008), in which Walter C. Kaiser Jr., Darrell L. Bock, and Peter Enns each represent a particular view.
