Requirements for Participation

Intertextuality in the New Testament

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Intertextuality in the New Testament Section seeks paper proposals for three sessions, two themed and one open. 1) The first themed session will focus on ancient Jewish exegetical methods and the New Testament. We seek papers which give a description of ancient Jewish exegetical practices (e.g., rabbinic or midrashic techniques, methods from Hellenistic Jewish exegetes as Philo, and exegetical practices from any other ancient Jewish author) and which explain how a given New Testament author employs or modifies the same method in their own intertextual readings of the Hebrew Bible, Septuagint, or other ancient texts. 2) The second themed session invites papers that focus on the intertextual use and interpretation of the Pentateuch by New Testament authors. 3) The third session is open and invites papers on all elements of intertextuality and New Testament interpretation.
