Neotestamentica et Philonica is a collection of eighteen essays by an international group of scholars in honor of Peder Borgen. They treat aspects of the study of the historical Jesus, Paul and his Letters, the Gospel of John and Philo of Alexandria. These essays represent the cutting edge of New Testament and Philonic scholarship and will be important resources for students of these subject areas.
David E. Aune, Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, is Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of a three volume commentary on
Revelation (Thomas Nelson, 1997-98).
Torrey Seland is Professor of New Testament and Dean at Volda College. He is the author of
Establishment Violence in Philo and Luke (Brill, 1995).
Jarl Henning Ulrichsen is Professor of New Testament at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He is the author of
Die Grundschrift der Testamente der zwölf Patriarchen (1991).
The general quality of these essays is quite good, and a number of them deserve wide reading. They are a worthy tribute not just to Professor Borgen but to his scholarship and the issues that he raised.'
