The Old Testament in the New Testament: Models for interpretation

It is a common practice for studies of the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament to summarise the complex Greek and Hebrew data under a single designation, such as “prophecy and fulfilment” or “messianic exegesis”. In this article, I discuss seven different models that are used in scholarly discussion of the Old Testament in the New Testament and offer an evaluation of their various strengths and weaknesses. I conclude that each model has its limitations and indeed distorts the evidence if pushed too far. The implications are that greater clarity would result if (1) scholars acknowledged the model or models that they are using; and (2) a multi-dimensional approach was adopted.
