Untersuchungen zu seiner religionsgeschichtlichen und chronologischen Einordnung
Author: Enno Edzard Popkes
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
View: 5813English summary: Enno Edzard Popkes investigates the anthropological traits of the Coptic Gospel of Thomas, especially its comprehension of individuality and sociality, the term monachos and the motif of the image character of human existence. The analysis shows that this writing can be understood as a Gnostic work, in terms of content as well as the technique of its argument and composition. It is not merely an early Gnostic writing with only first signs of concepts, which were expanded in later Gnostic traditions. The Coptic Gospel of Thomas presupposes an already fully developed Gnostic anthropology. German description: Das Thomasevangelium zieht eine besondere Aufmerksamkeit auf sich. Bei keiner anderen ausserkanonischen Schrift wird derartig kontrovers diskutiert, ob sie fruhe Jesus-Traditionen enthalt, die noch nicht von den Deutungsversuchen des fruhen Christentums uberformt sind. Lange Zeit wurde die Forschung durch die Frage dominiert, ob sich auf der Basis der koptischen Ubersetzung und den griechischen Fragmenten des Thomasevangeliums fruhere Textstadien rekonstruieren lassen, die neue Erkenntnisse uber die Worte und Taten Jesu und uber die Identitatsfindungsprozesse der fruhen Jesusbewegung ermoglichen. Eine vernachlassigte Aufgabe besteht jedoch darin, das koptische Thomasevangelium als ein eigenstandiges Zeugnis zu wurdigen. Bisher wurde auch nur selten analysiert, zu welchen konkreten gnostischen Traditionsbildungen sich Bezuge erkennen lassen und in welchem Verhaltnis es zu weiteren gnostischen Originalzeugnissen steht. Dieser Aufgabe widmet sich Enno Edzard Popkes, indem er das Menschenbild des Thomasevangeliums analysiert, in welchem das theologische Profil dieses Werkes eindrucklich zu Tage tritt. Dabei zeigt sich, dass das koptische Thomasevangelium inhaltlich-sachlich und argumentations- und kompositionstechnisch als ein gnostisches Werk verstanden werden kann. Es handelt sich nicht nur um ein 'fruhgnostisches' Werk, in welchem lediglich ansatzweise Konzeptionen vorliegen, die in spateren gnostischen Traditionsbildungen ausgearbeitet werden. Die einzig vollstandig erhaltene Fassung des Thomasevangeliums setzt vielmehr ein bereits voll entwickeltes gnostisches Menschenbild voraus.
A Practical Introduction for Teaching and Exegesis
Author: Steven E. Runge
Publisher: Hendrickson Publishers
View: 3536This work fills a significant need for a well-researched yet readable guide to discourse analysis. Using cross-linguistic principles and providing copious examples from both narratives and episles, Runge takes the reader from linguistic theory to practical exegetical application. Introducing a function-based approach to linguistics, Runge explores New Testament Greek grammatical conventions by focusing on the communication tasks they accomplish. His study of the ways in which words are used in texts and contexts has less to do with the specifics of speech and more to do with how humans are wired to process it. Therefore, Runge looks at how all languages operate before focusing on Greek. This examination of linguistics in general simplifies the analyticalprocess, and explains how and why we communicate as we do. Readers will learn that discourse analysis necessarily complements today's formal approaches to linguistics, as they are simultaneously led to a more accurate description of the biblical text.

View: 2258Stressing the historical and theological significance of pivotal figures and movements, William Baird guides the reader through intriguing developments and critical interpretation of the New Testament from its beginnings in Deism through the watershed of the Tubingen school. Familiar figures appear in a new light, and important, previously forgotten stages of the journey emerge. Baird gives attention to the biographical and cultural setting of persons and approaches, affording both beginning student and seasoned scholar an authoritative account that is useful for orientation as well as research.
kai, de, tote, gar, oun and Asyndeton in Narrative Discourse
Author: Stephanie Black
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
View: 5204An application of current linguistic research on discourse markers to sentence conjunctions in Matthew's Gospel. This treatment combines linguistic insights with a detailed examination of Matthew's use of kai, de and similar conjunctions in narrative passages, culminating in a verse by verse commentary on the structure of Matthew's ;miracle chapters', Matthew 8-9. Black breaks new ground in linguistic theory by modelling the interplay between features such as sentence conjunction, word order, and verb tense in the portrayal of continuity and discontinuity in Greek narrative. A volume of interest to New Testament scholars, classicists, discourse analysts and linguists alike.

View: 4035"Jesus Christ entered into the history of our world. Christianity, therefore, has historical basis. The backbone of history is chronology. Whereas history is a systematic account of events in relation to a nation, institution, science, or art; chronology is a science of time. It seeks to establish and arrange the dates of past events in their proper sequence. Thus chronology serves as a necessary framework upon which the events of history must be fitted. In this book (the author) attempts to establish certain fixed dates in our Lord's life." - Dr. Harold W. Hoehner. Dr. Hoehner has gathered a vast amount of data, both from Scripture and extrabiblical sources, to support his conclusions concerning key dates in the life of our Lord, among them: - The Date of Christ's Birth - The Commencement of Christ's Ministry - The Duration of Christ's Ministry - The Year of Christ's Crucifixion He carefully documents his position and compares the date available--including a study of Greek words, Roman law, and Jewish customs and prophecy.

Author: William Hersey Davis
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
View: 792This revised and expanded edition of a classic grammar includes a variety of improvements: additional examples, expanded paradigms and glossaries, a new section on English grammar, assignment layout, and a parsing guide. The Genealogy of a Greek Grammar Robertson--Davis--Beaman--Shackelford A. T. Robertson ('A Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research,' 2d ed. 1915) taught in the New Testament department at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville from 1890 to 1934. William Hersey Davis was one of his students. In fact, Robertson remarked that Davis was the most brilliant student of Greek that I ever had. Davis taught for thirty years (1920Ð50) at Southern Seminary and co-authored with Robertson an intermediate grammar, 'A New Short Grammar of the Greek Testament' (1931). In Davis's classes was Roy O. Beaman. Beaman taught at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary for twenty-two years. He taught at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary from 1972 to 1992. In Beaman's classes was David G. Shackelford, the editor and reviser of this grammar. Shackelford joined the faculty of Mid-America Seminary in 1988.

View: 1848What does Jesus mean when he says, A disciple is not above his teacher, but each disciple, after being fully trained, will be like his teacher (Luke 6:40)? This verse has been quoted, cited, and referenced in vast amounts of Christian education and discipleship literature. Nevertheless, the verse is nearly untouched in exegetical discussions with the exception of source-critical analyses. From this verse arises an undeveloped theme in the Gospel of Luke and the New Testament--the theme of likeness education. Using content analysis methodology, Luke 6:40--one of the keystone passages in Christian education literature--serves as the starting point for mining out the theme of likeness education in the New Testament. This study consists of three concentric areas of investigation: (1) Luke 6:40 and its immediate context, (2) Luke-Acts, and (3) the New Testament corpus.
View: 7775To read the New Testament is to meet the Old Testament at every turn. But exactly how do Old Testament texts relate to their New Testament references and allusions? Moreover, what fruitful interpretive methods do New Testament texts demonstrate? Leading biblical scholars Walter Kaiser, Darrel Bock and Peter Enns each present their answers to questions surrounding the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament. Contributors address elements such as Divine and human authorial intent, the context of Old Testament references, and theological grounds for an interpretive method. Each author applies his framework to specific texts so that readers can see how their methods work out in practice. Each contributor also receives a thorough critique from the other two authors. A one-stop reference for setting the scene and presenting approaches to the topic that respect the biblical text, Three Views on the New Testament Use of Old Testament gives readers the tools they need to develop their own views on this important subject. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible & Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.
An Application of the Frame Theory of Cognitive Science to the Markan Oral-Aural Narrative
Author: Yoon-Man Park
View: 2030Drawing on frame theory from cogntive science, this book shows that as a product of oral-aural cultures the Gospel of Mark is basically an 'background knowledge'-based story; and hence it can be only properly understood by the help of frames which the speaker and audience shared.

View: 5376"In Politics and Rhetoric in the Corinthian Epistles, L. L. Welborn explores the influence of ancient politics on the rhetoric of Paul's Corinthian correspondence. What Welborn discovers has clear and far-reaching implications for the interpretation of this important corpus of early Christian literature." "As it turns out, Paul was thoroughly familiar with the conventions of ancient political life. He used such techniques to dissuade his converts from faction, to exhort them to concord, to effect reconciliation, and even to defend his own character (as a leader worthy of their respect). Paul could count on the Corinthians' familiarity with the traditions of Greco-Roman politics. He did not need to discuss politics overtly. He could make use of political ideas and tactics to shape the Christian community. Welborn's investigations amply and clearly demonstrate how Paul made use of political ideas and strategies in his efforts to shape the Christian community." "When Paul's Corinthian correspondence is examined in its political context, fresh insights emerge regarding the situation in the church at Corinth and the character of Paul's correspondence with the church. The apparent schisms at Corinth, for example, long taken as reflections of conflicting theological views, appear as manifestations of a power struggle arising from social and economic differences. By forming factions, well-to-do Christians sought to control the new movement, to exercise some of the freedom and power of which they had heard Paul speak. Like Aristotle, Paul knew a divided state could not long stand against unified opposition." "Read in political context, Paul's correspondence with the Corinthians exemplifies the processes by which the ideals of Greece and Rome entered into the creation of a new society - the Christian ecclesia."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

View: 9139Writing, reading, and interpretation are acts of human minds, requiring complex cognition at every point. A relatively new field of studies, cognitive linguistics, focuses on how language and cognition are interconnected: Linguistic structures both shape cognitive patterns and are shaped by them. The Cognitive Linguistics in Biblical Interpretation section of the Society of Biblical Literature gathers scholars interested in applying cognitive linguistics to biblical studies, focusing on how language makes meaning, how texts evoke authority, and how contemporary readers interact with ancient texts. This collection of essays represents first fruits from the first six years (2006–2012) of that effort, drawing on cognitive metaphor study, mental spaces and conceptual blending, narrative theory, and cognitive grammar. Contributors include Eve Sweetser, Ellen van Wolde, Hugo Lundhaug and Jesper T. Nielsen.

Readings in Evangelical Conditionalism
Author: Christopher M. Date,Gregory G. Stump
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
View: 9581Most evangelical Christians believe that those people who are not saved before they die will be punished in hell forever. But is this what the Bible truly teaches? Do Christians need to rethink their understanding of hell? In the late twentieth century, a growing number of evangelical theologians, biblical scholars, and philosophers began to reject the traditional doctrine of eternal conscious torment in hell in favor of a minority theological perspective called conditional immortality. This view contends that the unsaved are resurrected to face divine judgment, just as Christians have always believed, but due to the fact that immortality is only given to those who are in Christ, the unsaved do not exist forever in hell. Instead, they face the punishment of the second death--an end to their conscious existence. This volume brings together excerpts from a variety of well-respected evangelical thinkers, including John Stott, John Wenham, and E. Earl Ellis, as they articulate the biblical, theological, and philosophical arguments for conditionalism. These readings will give thoughtful Christians strong evidence that there are indeed compelling reasons for rethinking hell.
