Abstract:

This study constitutes a compilation of the author's previous books treating difficulties in the new Testament: Difficult Passages in the Gospels (1984), Difficult Sayings in the Gospels (1985), and Difficult Passages in the Epistles (1988). The author selects representative verses from the Gospels and Epistles, articulates the proper procedure for interpreting them, and then proposes a resolution of the perplexing passages. Stein promises that the student "will not merely 'solve' specific difficult passages but develop a comprehensive method of interpretation that can be applied to other passages as well."
