  • Paul's Witness to Formative Early Christian Instructionby Benjamin A. Edsall

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 90.92

    Benjamin A. Edsall provides a new approach to the classic quest for the preaching and teaching (or the <i>kerygma</i> , <i>didache</i> and catechesis) of the early Church.

  • Literature or Liturgy?by Clemens Leonhard; Hermut Löhr

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 79.41

    Information about Ancient Christianity is preserved in literary texts. These sources contain passages that became liturgical texts during their history of reception while the context or form of some of them could suggest their ritualized use in the churches of New Testament times. The essays in this volume elaborate on the question of how ancient pieces... more...

  • Soldiers in Luke-Actsby Laurie Brink

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 79.41

  • Christ Absent and Presentby Peter Orr

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 90.92

    In his letters, the Apostle Paul can express both the confidence that Christ dwells in the believer (Rom. 8:10) and the longing for Christ to return so that believers can finally be united with him (1 Thess. 4:17). Peter Orr develops the case that this under-explored relationship between the presence and absence of Christ sheds important light on Paul?s... more...

  • Petrus Alexandrinusby Wolfgang Grünstäudl

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 90.92

    2Petr, dessen Existenz erst von Origenes zweifelsfrei bezeugt wird, gilt aufgrund seines scheinbar kaum näher bestimmbaren historischen Kontextes in der neutestamentlichen Exegese als "text without a home" (Michael Gilmour). Durch die intensive Analyse der Beziehungen des 2Petr zu anderen petrinischen Pseudepigraphen des frühen Christentums... more...

  • Anthropologie und Ethik im Frühjudentum und im Neuen Testamentby Matthias Konradt; Esther Schläpfer

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 177.24

    Nicht nur im antiken Judentum, sondern auch im entstehenden Christentum spielen ethische Aspekte eine maßgebliche Rolle. Fragt man nach der Einbettung ethischer Orientierungen in weltanschauliche Grundüberzeugungen, verdient die Korrelation von Anthropologie und Ethik besondere Aufmerksamkeit. Ethischen Orientierungen liegen - in den frühjüdischen... more...

  • Metaphor, Narrative, and Parables in Qby Dieter T. Roth; Ruben Zimmermann; Michael Labahn

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 148.47

    Research on Q has frequently been driven by questions addressing the legitimacy of the two-source hypothesis or by questions related to the reconstruction of this source. As such, Q scholarship has often viewed its tasks primarily through the lenses of source- and redaction-critical perspectives. The authors of this volume make a conscious effort to... more...
