In response to Speaking to Jews, New Testament scholar Leroy Huizenga writes on Twitter: “My late mentor Don Juel preferred Scriptures of Israel. I rather like it as a descriptor. Would use OT normatively.” I don’t think this settles the problem I raised any better than “Hebrew Bible,” but it’s another alternative we should consider.
Leroy is chairman of the department of theology at the University of Mary. Here is his personal website.
