  • Parables and Rhetoric in the Sermon on the Mountby Ernst Baasland

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; Not Available

    Parable research has to a large degree ignored the Sermon on the Mount (SM) and for its part, research into the SM has likewise left the parables by the wayside. However, the use of parabolic language in more than one third of the SM influences its interpretation and indeed opens up a new approach to it. In the current volume, Ernst Baasland focuses... more...

    Seeing Paul as a oesociopostcolonial hermeneuta Niang reads Gal 2:11-15 and 3:26-29 as bringing about alternative communities among the colonized Galatians through a countercolonial story of faith that reshapes them into free children of God; a new creation in Christ. more...
