"This book is a labor of lovefor the Scriptures, for readers, for learning, for teaching, and for God himself. The author takes up each topic in a wise, thorough, probing, and reverent manner. Readers will gain fresh insight into the history of New Testament times, the convictions of the biblical writers, and the implications of the age-old yet ever new Christian message for today. Readers will also glimpse the work of major New Testament scholars as their research has unfolded over recent decades. This is an excellent intermediate survey for college students, as well as for laypersons eager to move to new levels of biblical understanding." (Robert W. Yarbrough ~ Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri)
"Julius Scott's New Testament Themes is in fact a theology of the New Testament helpfully pitched at the level of the college student and general reader rather than the professional theologian and affords a detailed but readily readable and comprehensible topical exposition of New Testament teaching. Among its particular features I single out its careful treatment of the church's relation with and responsibility to society. Clearly and simply presented, it should attract a wide audience among Christians wanting a systematic guide to the main theological themes in the New Testament." (I. Howard Marshall ~ (1934-2015) Emeritus Professor of New Testament, University of Aberdeen)

Scott's writing removes the fear from understanding Theology for both Church and Christian.
For Christians going beyond sermons, small groups, and feel good studies or for non-believers seeking to know Jesus and the Kingdom of God, Scott illuminates and clarifies a Biblical theology that is livable.
His decades of study and teaching culminate in this easy to understand and profoundly insightful work.
Three chapters of "New Testament Theology: A New study of the thematic structure of the New Testament" include "Who is Jesus" in the title. The question is addressed in relation to the synoptic gospels, the gospel of John and the rest of the New Testament. This is how we get to know the "genuine" Jesus. We're looking to the real Jesus as portrayed by His own disciples and apostles. Every step of the way, Dr. Scott uses plenty of scripture to qualify what he says--it's like reading a Jack Van Impe book in that respect. In fact, the back of the book has a Scripture Index as well as a Subject Index. However, he also uses and clearly explains the Greek language underlying what the New Testament tells us. In this day and age, we have an abundance of New Age and One World Religion type philosophy to tickle our ears (and come to bad ends), and this is why the truth and sound doctrine are so very important if not always well-received. We mustn't forget that the "Good News" really is good news.
This book covers how to _live_ our faith, the Church, how will it end and other topics. I had bought the book on Jewish backgrounds of the New Testamtent by the same author, and saw this one. I trust Dr. Scott, so I bought it. It gives a wonderful survey of New Testament teachings and solid information about what the New Testament actually says, all in an easy-to-read format.
The footnotes are helpful and informative. Evidently, some people aren't so crazy about them. What?! I love footnotes. They make you feel like you're "in the know" about the subject matter.
Some classic books, like "Screwtape Letters" and "Pilgrim's Progress," are essential reading. This book, however, gets us back to the original, the Bible itself. Keep the faith, live the faith and....I'll see you in the Celestial City. ;-)
 p. 12: "I realize that some people are intimidated by the presence of even a few footnotes; to them I offer a word of advice, ignore them!"
Ha,ha. You just read my footnote, and now you're in the know about the book!
