Episode: Matt Lynch speaks with his former professor and friend Gary Schnittjer about his massive new book on the Old Testament's use of the Old Testament. They talk about exegetical updates to earlier texts, the rich networks of quotation and re-use that cluster around certain texts, and the ways that Gary's work on the OT use of the OT shapes his understanding of what the New Testament is doing.

Guest: Gary is Professor of Old Testament at Cairn University in Philadelphia, and is the author of two major works on the Old Testament, The Torah Story (Zondervan) and Old Testament Use of the Old Testament: A Book-By-Book Guide (Zondervan). Gary also hosts Hebrewdaybyday, which offers a short explanation of a Hebrew text each day. Subscribe to on Twitter or Youtube.
