Resources for New Testament Exegesis: Handy Desktop by Roy Ciampa

Ciampa.jpgWhile looking for a particular article on the use of the OT in the NT, I came across Dr. Roy Ciampa's handy bibliography on the subject: The Use of the Old Testament in the New (see also here).  Roy Ciampa is currently, Director of the Th.M. program in Biblical Studies, Professor of New Testament, and Chair of the Division of Biblical Studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.  The bibliography I found is located on his website, Resources for New Testament Exegesis, which is a tool made available particularly to students at GCTS, but it may also useful to you.  I will mark it.  Ciampa has also created an even more efficient desktop called DESKTOP TWO.  Check it out.  He has done a GREAT job of providing quick access to a lot of excellent resources from one location.

PS: On the topic of OT in the NT, you can find a brief bibliography supplied by D. A. Carson in the syllabus for the Fall 2011 Ph.D. Seminar at TEDS here.  Take notice of the following advice: "This is only a very small selection, chosen for diversity and usefulness to the assignments of this seminar. There is much more bibliography in Beale/Carson. Do not neglect the very substantial article literature—not least the important essay by Earle Ellis in CRINT."
