Urban Legends of the New Testament: 40 Common Misconceptions

Bibliographic information:

Croteau, David. Urban Legends of the New Testament: 40 Common Misconceptions. Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 2015.



Urban Legends of the New Testament surveys forty of the most commonly misinterpreted passages in the New Testament. These “urban legends” often arise because interpreters neglect a passage’s context, misuse historical background information, or misunderstand the Greek language. For each New Testament text, professor David Croteau describes the popular, incorrect interpretation and then carefully interprets the passage within its literary and historical context. Careful attention is given to sound principles of biblical interpretation to guide readers through the process and reach a more accurate understanding of each text’s meaning.
