Christological Readings through Historical Exegesis
Chapter 3 demonstrates Martin Bucer's use of historical exegesis to provide readings of these eight messianic Psalms in reference to Christ and the church. The author argues that Bucer remains in keeping with the antecedent Christian tradition in the content that he finds in these Psalms (i.e., literal prophecies of Christ and the church), but differs in his method both through his use of historical exegesis and his employment of Jewish exegesis. The author also exhibits Bucer's use of Jewish exegesis to highlight and anchor the new theological themes that he finds in these Psalms, such as election, the beneficence of God, and the cultivation of piety. The chapter concludes with an analysis of Bucer's views on Jews and Jewish exegesis.
