summary

As the inaugural volume in the Baylor-Mohr Siebeck Studies in Early Christianity series, Jens Schröter's celebrated From Jesus to the New Testament is now available for the first time in English. Schröter provides a rich narrative of the theological forces that created the New Testament canon. Through his textual, historical, and hermeneutical examination, Schröter reveals how various writings that form the New Testament's building blocks are all held together. Jesus not only inspired the New Testament but also launched a theological project that resulted in the canon. Schröter's study will undoubtedly spark new discussion about the formation of the canon and the character of earliest Christianity.
