New Testament

  • Death and Resurrectionby Dennis J. Horton

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 30.00

    Dennis Horton highlights the shape and function of the death-and-resurrection motif by applying William Freedman's criteria of a literary motif to the Acts narrative. By analyzing the statements about death and resurrection together with the examples of this messianic pattern among the experiences of major and minor characters, the motif becomes... more...

  • Dynamic Onenessby Suzanne Nicholson

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 40.50

    The apostle Paul affirms in several places that there is only one God. Yet in the same letters Paul also gives praise to the Lord Jesus Christ, often using language similar to his descriptions of God. How can this self-avowed Hebrew of Hebrews reconcile these ideas? This book explores the strongest one-God statements in Paul's undisputed letters... more...

  • Redrawing the Boundariesby J. V. M. Sturdy; Jonathan Knight

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    Was the New Testament written in the early first century CE or at a much later date? Sturdy's work was conceived as a reply to John Robinson's Reading the New Testament , which dated the New Testament material very early. Sturdy argued that the Pauline letters are in places interpolated, Colossians, Ephesians and the Pastorals are pseudonymous, and... more...

  • Mark and its Subalternsby David Joy

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    This book offers a fresh appraisal of the identity and involvement of the subalterns in Mark, arguing that the presence of the subalterns in Mark is a possible hermeneutical tool for re-reading the Bible in a postcolonial context like India. Part I paves the way for a creative discussion on Mark and its interpreters in the rest of the study by looking... more...

  • The Apostle Paul and His Lettersby Edwin D. Freed

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 34.95

    'The Apostle Paul and His Letters' presents a detailed examination of the apostle's seminal writings in the Book of Acts. Paul was writing primarily to converts who had joined church communities only recently, mostly forsaking either Judaism or paganism. Paul's emphases on faithfulness toward God, the faithfulness of Jesus, and his moral teachings... more...

  • The Morality of Paul's Convertsby Edwin D. Freed

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    A careful analysis of Paul's letters shows that in every church there were two main groups of converts: those who were baptized and those being instructed for baptism. Such analysis also makes it possible to determine which parts of each letter were directed towards which group. Baptism was the rite by which converts were forgiven their past sins and... more...

  • Existentiale Interpretationby Bernd Jaspert

    Traugott Bautz 2014; US$ 17.32

    Der Marburger Theologe Rudolf Bultmann (1884-1976) behauptete 1941, die Bibel müsse entmythologisiert werden, um sie heute zu verstehen. Damit der moderne Mensch Behauptungen der Heiligen Schrift wie z. B. die Auferstehung Jesu Christi von den Toten, seine Himmelfahrt oder seine Wunder akzeptieren und für sich als unbedingt notwendig ansehen könne,... more...

  • The Portrayals of the Pharisees in the Gospels and Actsby Mary Marshall

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 76.42

    The first five books of the New Testament contain a large proportion of all uses of the term Farisai/oj in extant literature. In the light of growing scepticism among historians of Judaism over the accuracy and legitimacy of reconstructions of the Pharisees of history, Mary Marshall sets aside the quest for the historical Pharisees and instead offers... more...

  • The Gospels and Homerby Dennis R. MacDonald

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2014; US$ 84.99

    These two volumes are the magnum opus of biblical scholar Dennis R. MacDonald, outlining the profound connections between the New Testament and classical Greek poetry. MacDonald argues that the Gospel writers borrowed from established literary sources to create stories about Jesus that readers of the day would find convincing. more...
