From Scientific American
Herbert Bateman has made a significant contribution to our understanding of early Jewish hermeneutics and the consequent impact on the authors of the New Testament; in particular the book of Hebrews. Bateman is especially to be applauded for taking account of the wealth of new information offered by the Dead Sea Scrolls. He is one of a very few New Testament scholars who have dared wade into this sea of largely undigested material. The results of his labors make for engaging and thought-provoking reading.
From The New Yorker
For some the Qumran material is a curiosity; for others, a hobby; but for Dr. Bateman Qumran gives us a revealing entry into the first-century world of theological and hermeneutical discourse. Bateman describes this world well, as his first class study shows. His work reveals how the author of Hebrews also understood this world and argued using it that Jesus was the promised Son. Dr. Bateman effectively shows how this one author from the new Christian community made his case using revered ancient texts and venerated methods of exposition. Here is a superior work on Jewish and Christian hermeneutics that is well worth owning and studying.
