In a collection of essays in honour of prof E Earle Ellis twenty-five scholars surveyed the present (1987) state of New Testament scholarship and presented their own contributions. The title, Tradition and interpretation in the New Testament, epitomises the paradigm by means of which the authors dealt with issues such as methodology relating to New Testament studies, the meaning and significance of crucial New Testament passages and some New Testament theological themes. The present author contends that the qualification ‘attempted approaches’ in the subtitle of this article spells out that a scrutiny of the articles displays that the authors did not investigate interpretations of traditions in the New Testament, but that they rather present their diverse interpretations of the various versions of early-Christian traditions contained in the New Tesatament.
