Abstract The aim of this article was to explain Walter Schmithals’ unique understanding of the unity of the New Testament message. It focuses on his historical and theological interpretation of the New Testament within the parameters of the historical-critical paradigm. This article describes how Schmithals combines historical criticism with the core tenets of Protestant theology. The following facets were emphasised: Gnosticism, gospel studies and Q, Paul, early Christianity, emperor cult, separation from the synagogue, apocalypticism, historical Jesus, the relationship between the Old and New Testament, ecclesiology and New Testament ethics.
