Review quote

"European and US scholars of religion, Old and New Testaments, Greek, and systems analysis take the gospels and epistles in turn, identifying and analyzing quotations from and allusions to the 12 prophets of the Old Testament known as the Minor Prophets. Of the 12, Hosea, Zechariah, Habakkuk, Joel, Amos, Micah, Jonah, and Haggai are quoted explicitly. The quotations all occur in the gospels (including Acts), Paul, and Hebrews. Chapters also look at allusions, there being no quotations, in James, 1 & 2 Peter, and Jude and in Revelations." -Eithne O' Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc. 'The volume as a whole provides a helpful resource for prophetic study and an essential resource for those examining the use of the Old Testament in the New.'--Sanford Lakoff "After a five-page introduction, this volume presents nine essays on how the Minor Prophets are treated in Second Temple Judaism by J. Leonhardt-Balzer; in Mark's Gospel by C. Breytenbach; in Matthew's Gospel by C.A. Ham; in Luke's-Acts by H. van de Sandt; in John's Gospel by Menken; in Paul by Moyise; in Hebrews by R. Gheorghita; in James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude by K. H. Jobes; and in Revelation by M. Jauhiainen."
