“Interpreting the Word of God: FS for Steven Barabas.” One chapter to go on-line – please help to choose which one

One of my supporters kindly sent me a copy of the following book in the hope that I would be able to place one chapter from it on-line:

 

Samuel J. Schultz & Morris A. Inch, eds., Interpreting the Word of God. Festschift in honor of Steven Barabas. Chicago: Moody Press, 1976. Hbk. pp.281.

 

Moody have kindly given me permission for me to do this, but there remains the problem of deciding which article to use, as all are on interesting subjects. So I am asking my readers to vote for the chapter they would most like to see on-line. Anyone can vote, but I will give extra weighting to those who have read the article and can say why it is still useful today. I look forward to reading the comments. Here is the list of articles:

J.E. Jennings, “Ancient Near Eastern Religion and Biblical Interpretation,” 11-30.

Alfred J. Hoerth, “Archaeology and the Christian Mind,” 31-45.

S.J. Schultz, “Old Testament Prophets in Today’s World,” 46-59.

C. Hassell Bullock, “Entrée to the Pentateuch Through the Prophets: A Hermeneutics of History,” 60-77.

Donald A. Hagner, “The Old Testament in the New Testament,” 78-104.

Gordon Fee, “The Genre of New Testament Literature and Biblical Hermeneutics,” 105-127.

Alan Johnson, “History and Culture in New Testament Interpretation,” 128-161.

Morris Inch, “The Place of the Incarnation in Biblical Interpretation,” 162-177.

Donald Lake, “The Reformation Contribution to the Interpretation of the Bible,” 178-198.

Robert Webber, “Biblical Authority: A Study in History,” 199-216.

Herbert Jacobson, “On the Limitations of Hermeneutics,” 217-237.

Steven Barabas, “Bibliographic Tools of Biblical Interpretation,” 238-272.

  1. Are any of these chapters (or near versions) available online elsewhere? Sometimes authors recycle materials and the same stuff is available in multiple essays.

    Given all the recent buzz on the NT’s use of the OT, I’d go with Hagner as well.
