Is it a hermeneutical blunder to read the OT as deliberately predicting NT events? Did Moses actually write about Jesus? Is the idea that the “OT is fulfilled in the NT” a development of the post-resurrection church?
This is a survey of the arguments of Biblical scholarship on the matter: C.H. Dodd, Albert C. Sundberg, Rudolf Bultmann, Donald Juel, Barnabas Lindars, I. Howard Marshall, Steve Moyise, Gregory Beale, Pete Enns, J. Ross Wagner, Tom Wright, Jimmy Dunn, Ben Witherington, John Dominic Crossan (Prophecy Historicized), Raymond Brown (History Remembered), Mark Goodacre (Scripturalization), Richard B. Hays (Metalepsis, Reading Backwards, Figural-Retrospective Readings). Finally, briefly discussed are: Sensus Plenior, Progressive Revelation, Single-Meaning Principle vs. Double Meaning, Authorial Intent, Qumran Pesher, and Midrash Typology.
