Keep Yourselves from Idols

Keep Yourselves from Idols

Challenging gnositicizing interpretations of the letter, Terry Griffith explores how the polemic against idols was variously used in Jewish and Christian circles to define self-identity and the limits of community. He shows that the rhetoric of 1 John is not polemical, but pastoral, directed at confirming Johannine Christians in their fundamental confession of faith and preventing further defections of Jewish ...

Oral Biblical Criticism: The Influence of the Principles of Orality on the Literary Structure of Paul's Epistle to the Philip

Oral Biblical Criticism: The ...

The Apostle Paul expected the vast majority of the recipients of his letters to hear, not read, them. He structured his compositions for the ear rather than the eye. Pauline audiences would hear clues to meaning and structure because they had learned to communicate in a world where those clues were essential to understanding. Recognizable structures and patterns were essential ...

Oral Tradition and the Gospels

Oral Tradition and the ...

The problem of oral tradition is well known, for without some theory of this medium no history of Jesus would be possible.

Gerhardsson's 'Memory and Manuscript' theory and the recent contribution of W. Kelber. The form-critically separate units in the test ...

In no other New Testament writing does the interest in the cult and its practice figure more prominently than in the Epistle to the Hebrews.

Scholer begins with an examination of the role and ...
