The Letter to the Ephesians

For any of you guys out there, do you know of any recent journal articles, books, and commenatries that deal well with OT use in Ephesians? I'm thinking specifically Ephesians 2:17 (Is. 57:19). Immediately only O'Brien's commentary and Beale/Carson's commentary come to mind!

Here you go:

Moritz, Thorsten. A Profound Mystery: The Use of the Old Testament in Ephesians. Vol. 85 Supplements to Novum Testamentum, ed. A.J. Malherbe and D.P. Moessner. Leiden, Netherlands: Brill, 1996.

Lincoln, Andrew T. "The Use of the Ot in Ephesians." Journal for the Study of the New Testament 14, no. 1 (1982): 16-57.

Gombis, Timothy G. "Cosmic Lordship and Divine Gift-Giving: Psalm 68 in Ephesians 4:8." Novum Testamentum 47, no. 4 (2005): 367-380.

Also, check out all the "New Testament and the Scriptures of Israel" volumes for the Eph section.

Moritz is absolutely fantastic.

I think Ernest Best has a book of essays too: Essays on Ephesians published by T. & T. Clark.

Mike, Yeah I liked Moritz a lot for my research, but don't forget, he is wrong on 4.8 ;)

Daniel: Thanks for this list, I'll take a look at Moritz's book, seems like that one fits the bill for exactly what I am doing. I just borrowed Moyise and Menken's Isaiah in the New Testament and it seems that they completely ignored letters are not universally accepted as Paul-authored. A bit disappointing!

Mike: Thanks, I'll take a look at Ernest Best. Ironically, he was the external examiner for my prof who is teaching the Ephesians class!

well of course you have in addition to O'Brien: Best, Hoehner, Lincoln, and Barth. Yes indeed Moritz. Also, you might look at Rader which traces the history of interpretation of the passage at hand.

Rob: Thanks for reminding me of some good references. And Rader looks very interesting, so thanks again for that!
