TEST YOUR VIEW--NT use if the OT

NT Use of the OT -- Test Your View!
Single Meaning, Unified Referents view You seem to be most closely aligned with the Single Meaning, Unified Referents view, a view defended by Walter C. Kaiser Jr. in the book “Three Views on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament” (edited by Kenneth Berding and Jonathan Lunde, Nov. 2008). This view denies any distinction between what the OT author intends by his words and what the NT author intends (therefore a “single meaning”). In addition to any prior reference, the OT writer is to be understood as ultimately having the same people or events in mind when he writes his text as the NT author does when he refers that text to Jesus and the community defined by him. For more info, see the book, or attend a special session devoted to the topic at the ETS Annual Meeting in Providence, RI (Nov. 2008); Walter C. Kaiser Jr., Darrell L. Bock, and Peter Enns will all present their views.
