The present reference tool is part of Brill’s New Testament Tools & Studies series, which previously featured the same author’s Index to Periodical Literature on Christ and the Gospels (Brill, 1998), which in turn was based on Bruce Metzger’s book with the same title (Brill, 1961, 1966, updated 1988) and other similar works.
The bibliography indexes journal articles that relate to the critical study of the writings of the New Testament. There are more than 15,000 entries of titles from about 185 academic journals. Entries are listed in canonical order from Matthew to Revelation. Within each textual unit, entries are listed in chronological order of publication.
