Nos 7-8 July 1961
WITH THE WELCOME RETURN of Dr. Leon Morris to Tyndale House as Warden it is hoped that recent double numbers of this Bulletin may give place to regular bi-annual issues. An appreciation will be found on a later page of our new Warden’s earlier contributions to the work of the House and to evangelical scholarship generally. We shall look forward with keen anticipation to further work from his industrious pen.
This issue of the Bulletin presents four articles, providing the substance of papers read at meetings of the Old Testament, New Testament and Biblical Theology Study Groups of the Tyndale Fellowship. Each in its own context invites interest for aspects of Biblical Theology which merit attention. The Book of Proverbs is far too commonly regarded simply as a collection of oriental maxims. Derek Kidner demonstrates its theistic background and theological presuppositions. The various adjectives applied to Covenant in the Old Testament are examined by D. F. Payne, with particular reference to the use of the word ‘everlasting’. The Book of Hebrews, always a challenge and full of interest, has attracted Alan M. Fairhurst’s attention to evidence of Hellenistic influences and Stephen Smalley’s to its particular presentation of the doctrine of the atonement.
