  • Joshua Typology in the New Testamentby Richard Ounsworth

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 61.69

    Hauptbeschreibung In this monograph Richard Ounsworth argues that the Letter to the Hebrews invites its audience to infer a typological relationship between Jesus and Joshua, son of Nun, with whom he shares a name.

  • Jesus in Continuumby Tom Holmén

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 147.37

    Hauptbeschreibung One of the central characteristics of the latest historical Jesus research has been the attempt to locate Jesus plausibly within first-century Judaism. Less emphasis has been placed on the question as to whether or how, if at all, the image of Jesus within the Jewish context also suits and accounts for the history of the influence... more...

  • Attraction and Danger of Alien Religionby Karl-Gustav Sandelin

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 107.38

    Hauptbeschreibung Early Judaism and early Christianity emerged during the Hellenistic and early Roman imperial era. They were, naturally, confronted with the Hellenistic and the Roman religion.

  • Das Petrusbild im Johannesevangeliumby Tanja Schultheiß

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 95.96

    Hauptbeschreibung Petrus erscheint im Johannesevangelium stellenweise mehr als Stein des Anstoßes denn als Fels. Vor allem neben dem Lieblingsjünger wirkt seine Figur ambivalent. Aus dieser Perspektive hat die Forschung häufig einen Gegensatz zwischen der johanneischen und der 'petrinisch'-großkirchlichen Tradition konstruiert, der erst in Joh 21... more...

  • Paul in Acts and Paul in His Lettersby Daniel Marguerat

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 134.81

    Hauptbeschreibung The reception of Paul in the first century is a highly debated issue.
