This book meets the need for an accessible introduction to the various ways that Jesus used Scripture, both in his teaching and in his own understanding of his ministry. After an introductory chapter on the forms of the text that Jesus might have known, it first analyses the way that the four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) portray Jesus' use of Scripture, under the headings 'Jesus and the Law', 'Jesus and the Prophets' and 'Jesus and the Writings'. It then shows how modern scholars take very different views on how the historical Jesus might be reconstructed (e.g., Crossan, Vermes, Sanders, Dunn, Wright) and demonstrates how this affects one's understanding of Jesus' use of Scripture. It concludes with an assessment of how far Jesus' use of Scripture can be seen as formative for Paul and other New Testament writers.
