Veteran New Testament scholar Richard Longenecker explains how early Christians contextualized the gospel message for their hearers just as Christians do today.

Specifically, New Wine into Fresh Wineskins focuses on the relationships among the early Christian confessions in the letters of Paul and the Gospels and looks at how the New Testament writers contextualized these confessions for their own hearers. The volume also reflects on how Christian confessions are adapted for later cultures and contexts. For example, the same gospel message both tells of the past and promises a future, it both encourages and admonishes, and it both reveals and conceals the mysteries of God. With careful analysis and appreciation for how early Christians understood Jesus in a variety of situations, Longenecker challenges readers with the always relevant truth of the gospel.
