Some remarks on the Christological interpretation of Scripture as hermeneutical key of New Testament authors
Some remarks are made in the following article regarding the christological use of Scripture by the early Christian writers. It is argued that the origin of this approach was found by the New Testament writers in Christ’s own interpretation of these Scriptures. Acts 8:26-40 is used as an example of how a “different” meaning was given. It is further stated that the early Christian writers could easily bridge the gap to Jesus of Nazareth being the Lord and Messiah with terminology in the LXX which lends itself to this purpose. After indicating personal preferences for and/or accessibility of some of these Scriptures, the article concludes that the early Christian writers continued the tradition that these Scriptures were God’s word and authoritative, but they interpreted them christologically.
