Abstract In recent years the language of intertextuality has surfaced in many approaches to biblical interpretation. These approaches often rest on divergent and sometimes contradictory assumptions about the nature of texts. A survey of the use of intertextuality in New Testament Studies provides a snapshot of the battle lines which divide biblical scholarship today. As intertextuality is explored, the interpretive limits of historical, literary and ideological approaches are brought into focus. Concluding this survey, I argue that further productive interpretation will depend on an honest confrontation with the contradictory textual assumptions held within biblical scholarship and theology more generally.
