Abstract

Various problems and controversies are associated with the use of the Old Testament in the New. The convection of this chapter is that a number of these issues can be addressed with fresh illumination when considered using certain insights from the filed of linguistics. It will be useful, first, to make mention of the notable problems arising from the New Testament's us of the Old. We will then outline some linguistic approaches to the interpretation of text before applying these insights to Luke 18 - 24. We will conclude by commenting on the relevance of these insights for the New Testament's use of the Old Testament more broadly
