Rev. Steven D. Harduk, BRE, MDiv, CH, a proud family patriarch deeply involved in church ministry, has completed his new book, "The Psalms in the New Testament": a faith-based study on the purpose of psalms and how they are used in worship.
Harduk shares, "The Psalms in the New Testament is a study of various Psalm quotations in the New Testament with addition material on the Psalms, their structure, history, theology, themes, and use in worship. The Psalms are more than exquisite and emotional expressions of our faith, they reveal the foundation and unity of our theology. They show that our New Testament beliefs are rooted in the Old Testament. Our Judeo-Christian faith is ancient, yet just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. The focus is upon seventeen specific Psalm quotes to show the wonderful theology in the Psalms, which fully merges into the New Testament, especially in the area of Christology.
In studying these portions of Scripture, we are connected with the saints of old. We share in their struggles, hurts, anger, and confusion, yet by faith see the working of God in our lives. These songs, whether they be laments or praises, reveal our human condition and that our greatest purpose is to glorify God. Like them, we meditate upon well-known verses to see the wonderful works of God. We are reminded to trust in the Lord; that ultimately the only thing that truly matters is to know God and obediently walk with Him. May this brief study in the most quoted Old Testament book encourage you to rejoice in the person and salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ!"
