Texts and Contexts honors the life and scholarship of David E. Garland. Fifteen colleagues, friends, and former students each offer a study on one of the canonical Gospels or Paul’s letters, demonstrating how these texts continue to reveal new surprises and a wealth of resources for service to the gospel.

Throughout his productive career as a New Testament scholar—first at the Southern Seminary and later at Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary—Garland became widely known and highly regarded for his wise and careful interpretive work. His commentaries on the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) as well as Paul’s letters (1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon) exemplify careful, thoughtful, and faithful biblical scholarship in service of both the academy and the church.

This present volume begins with five studies on Gospels texts and the Jesus tradition (Margaret E. Ramey, Richard Bauckham, Mikeal C. Parsons, Andrew E. Arterbury, and Craig L. Blomberg). Five essays on Pauline passages and interpretation follow (Todd D. Still, Mark A. Seifrid, Craig S. Keener, Bradley Arnold, and Klyne R. Snodgrass). Five homilies round out the collection (Ben Witherington III, W. Hulitt Gloer, Bill J. Leonard, Timothy George, and Daniel O. Aleshire). Even as this book celebrates and commemorates what Garland has already done, it anticipates scholarship yet to be received.
