This article begins with a discussion of the methodological issues faced by scholars of ethics in the Old Testament and New Testament.

This is followed by a discussion of New Testament ethics covering Jesus and the law, Jesus and eschatology, the background of Paul's ethics, and Paul's Christology and eschatology.
