Eighteen prominent scholars have been asked to honor the lifelong academic accomplishments of two great Jesuit biblical scholars, Richard J. Clifford and Daniel J. Harrington. All contributors have a personal and professional connection with the authors. A common thread in the authors scholarship has been the use and reappropriation of texts, images, and traditions, whether in the canonical Hebrew Bible, second temple literature (e.g., the Dead Sea Scrolls), or the New Testament. The essays illustrate the phenomenon of use and reappropriation and cover a wide range of topics, including portrayals of God in the Old Testament; second temple reappropriations; New Testament (essays on Paul, Mark, Matthew, Luke/Acts, and John), and early Christian examples. The essays pay great tribute to the Festschrift s recipients; they also illustrate well to a broader readership an important interpretive phenomenon: the use and reuse of Scripture.Christopher Frechette, Christopher R.
