Some remarks on the Christological interpretation of Scripture as
hermeneutical key of New Testament authors:
Some remarks are made in the following article regarding the christological
use of Scripture by the early christian writers. It is argued that the
origin of this approach was found by the New Testament writers in Christ's
own interpretation of these Scriptures. Acts 8:26-40 is used as an example
of how a "different" meaning was given. It is further stated that the early
christian writers could easily bridge the gap to Jesus of Nazareth being the
Lord and Messiah with terminology in the LXX which lends itself to this
purpose. After indicating personal preferences for and/or accessibility of
some of these Scriptures, the article concludes that the early christian
writers continued the tradition that these Scriptures were God's word and
authoritative, but they interpreted them christologically.
