  • The Holy Spirit and Ethics in Paulby Volker Rabens

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 68.49

    Volker Rabens answers the question of how, according to the apostle Paul, the Holy Spirit enables religious-ethical life. In the first part of the book, the author discusses the established view that the Spirit is a material substance which transforms people ontologically by virtue of its physical nature. In order to assess this "Stoic" reading... more...

  • Completing Christ's Afflictionsby Bruce T. Clark

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 59.24

    What is the relationship between the preeminent, cosmos-reconciling 'Christ' of Col 1:15-20 and the imprisoned 'Paul' of 1:24-29, who enigmatically 'completes' the former's afflictions as he declares to 'every person' <i>the</i> mystery, long concealed but only now revealed by Israel's God to his holy ones? After finding solid exegetical... more...

  • Acknowledging the Divine Benefactorby Terrance Callan

    James Clarke & Co 2015; US$ 19.50

    Acknowledging the Divine Benefactor' is a socio-rhetorical interpretation of the Second Letter of Peter. Using multiple interpretive perspectives and emphasising the pictorial dimensions of 2 Peter, Terrance Callan shows that the letter makes the following argument: since Jesus Christ has given his followers benefits, including the promise of sharing... more...

  • Der Tag der Plagenby Michael Sommer

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 77.75

    Die Johannesoffenbarung ist ein Text, in dem sehr viele Erzählfäden der Schriften Israels zusammenlaufen. Johannes formte aus Anspielungen auf Israels Traditionen einen Text sui generis. Der Text, den er auf diese Weise geschaffen hat, ist darüber hinaus nichts Geringeres als ein literaturarchitektonisches Meisterwerk, das auf einem regelrechten Arsenal... more...

  • The Text of Galatians and Its Historyby Stephen C. Carlson

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 82.38

    Stephen C. Carlson investigates the text of Paul's Epistle to the Galatians and analyses how that text changed over the course of its transmission in manuscript copies over several centuries. For this study, he collated ninety-two textual witnesses of Galatians and arranged them into a genealogical family tree called a <i>stemma codicum</i>... more...

  • The Righteousness of Godby Charles Lee Irons

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 82.38

    Advocates of the New Perspective on Paul appeal to the view that "righteousness" in biblical theology is a Verhältnisbegriff (relational concept). This is the view that "righteousness" does not mean conformity to a norm, nor is it an essentially legal concept; rather, "righteousness" denotes the fulfillment of the demands... more...

  • Hidden Criticism?by Christoph Heilig

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 63.87

    Paul has been regarded as being uncritical of the Roman Empire for a long time, not least because of his apparent call to obey the state in Rom 13:1-7. However, recent scholarship has questioned this assumption by pointing to "hidden criticism" in the letters of the apostle. But how can we decide, in a methodologically sound way, whether... more...

  • Repetition in Hebrewsby Nicholas J. Moore

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 77.75

    Repetition has had a chequered and often negative reception in Christian history, especially in connection with ritual and liturgy, and the Letter to the Hebrews lies at the heart of this contested understanding. Nicholas Moore shows that repetition in Hebrews does not operate in uniform contrast to the once-for-all death of Christ but rather functions... more...

  • Sprachethik im Neuen Testamentby Susanne Luther

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 91.63

    Susanne Luther gibt in ihrer Studie zur Sprachethik im Neuen Testament einen Überblick über sprachethische Weisungen in den neutestamentlichen Texten: Wie also soll und darf geredet werden? Inwiefern ist die Verwendung von Sprache moralisch gut oder schlecht? Insbesondere im Matthäusevangelium, Jakobusbrief und im 1. Petrusbrief werden sprachethische... more...

  • Paul's Ekklesia as a Civic Assemblyby Young-Ho Park

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 73.12

    The Greek word <i>ekklesia</i> originally meant the civic assembly of all citizens in the classical Greek democracy. Young-Ho Park argues that the strong civic connotation of this term continued to operate in the political culture of the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The use of <i>ekklesia</i> in second-temple Judaism should... more...
