English summary: This volume contains significant published and unpublished essays written by the Judaism and New Testament scholar Friedrich Avemarie, who died unexpectedly in October 2012. Set against the background of an excellent knowledge of the rabbinic literature and with a decidedly theological interest in the New Testament, the contributions provide critical impulses for New Testament and Judaistic discourse. Key topics are the rabbinic theology of martyrdom, rabbinic and New Testament soteriology and anthropology, the parables of Jesus, the historical background of the Book of Acts, Paul's doctrine of justification in relation to the so-called New Perspective on Paul, the Israel question in the theology of Saint Paul, and questions about the history of salvation and the free will in Paul's gospel. Five of the essays are published here for the first time. German description: Der Band versammelt wichtige veroffentlichte und bisher unveroffentlichte Aufsatze des im Oktober 2012 unerwartet verstorbenen Neutestamentlers und Judaisten Friedrich Avemarie. Vor dem Hintergrund exzellenter Kenntnis der rabbinischen Literatur und in dezidiert theologischem Interesse am Neuen Testament geben die Beitrage der neutestamentlichen und judaistischen Diskussion wichtige Impulse. Themenschwerpunkte sind die rabbinische Martyriumstheologie, rabbinische und neutestamentliche Soteriologie und Anthropologie, Jesu Gleichnisse, der historische Hintergrund der Apostelgeschichte, die paulinische Rechtfertigungslehre in Auseinandersetzung mit der sogenannten New Perspective on Paul, die Israelfrage in der paulinischen Theologie, und die Fragen nach Heilsgeschichte und freiem Willen bei Paulus. Funf Aufsatze werden hier erstmals publiziert.

English summary: The authority, task, structure and implementation of New Testament theology are the subject of current debates. Some authors look for alternatives in terms of a history of early Christian religion or theology, whereas others search for the unity of New Testament theology within the diversity of early Christian concepts. The articles in this volume focus on these crucial issues. They deal with aspects of the history of scholarship, include ecumenical perspectives and open the debate in the direction of systematic theology. The discussion focuses on the recent two-volume work entitled New Testament Theology, written by Ferdinand Hahn. German description: Berechtigung, Aufgabe, Aufbau und Durchfuhrung einer Theologie des Neuen Testaments sind auch nach uber 200 Jahren der Diskussion heftig umstritten. Wahrend die einen nach religions- oder theologiegeschichtlichen Alternativen einer solchen Gesamtdarstellung der neutestamentlichen Wissenschaft suchen, fragen andere Autoren dezidiert nach der Einheit der neutestamentlichen Theologie in der Vielfalt der Entwurfe. Die Autoren der Beitrage dieses Sammelbandes erortern die strittigen Fragen in internationaler und okumenischer Perspektive und im Gesprach mit der Systematischen Theologie. Neben einigen programmatischen Entwurfen steht dabei die 2002 erschienene Theologie des Neuen Testaments von Ferdinand Hahn im Brennpunkt der Diskussion.

First English edition of an iconic work of German scholarship Since its original publication in German, Peter Stuhlmacher’s two-volume Biblische Theologie des Neuen Testaments has influenced an entire generation of biblical scholars and theologians. Now Daniel Bailey’s expert translation makes this important work of New Testament theology available in English for the first time. Following an extended discussion of the task of writing a New Testament theology, Stuhlmacher explores the development of the Christian message across the pages of the Gospels, the writings of Paul, and the other canonical books of the New Testament. The second part of the book examines the biblical canon and its historical significance. A concluding essay by Bailey applies Stuhlmacher’s approach to specific texts in Romans and 4 Maccabees.

English summary: In New Testament research, the exploration of the witnesses of everyday life in antiquity has again attracted remarkable interest. However, interpreting the remains of material culture or documentary papyri raises complex methodological issues. The Third International Symposium of the Corpus Judaeo-Hellenisticum Project focused on the Hellenistic-Jewish perspectives on the conditions of everyday life. Once again, the main interest was the question of how the research on the Hellenistic-Jewish culture could contribute to the understanding of the New Testament and vice versa. This volume documents the interdisciplinary discourse between New Testament research and the fields of epigraphy, numismatics, archaeology, papyrology, iconography, geography and the history of culture. German description: Die Erforschung der lebensweltlichen Rahmenbedingungen der Entstehung neutestamentlicher Schriften erfahrt in den letzten Jahren starkere Beachtung. Die Beschaftigung mit den Zeugnissen der antiken Alltagskultur wirft aber methodische Fragen auf, die bisher in ihrer Tragweite kaum bedacht wurden. Das III. Internationale Symposium zum Corpus Judaeo-Hellenisticum Novi Testamenti hat sich dieser Thematik speziell unter dem Aspekt der judisch-hellenistischen Alltagskultur gewidmet. Dabei ging es erneut um awechselseitige Wahrnehmungen, d.h. um die Frage, welchen Beitrag die Erforschung der hellenistisch-judischen Alltagskultur fur das Verstandnis des Neuen Testaments leisten kann und umgekehrt, welche Perspektiven sich aus neutestamentlicher Sicht fur die Erforschung der judisch-hellenistischen Alltagskultur ergeben. Die Ertrage des interdisziplinaren Dialogs zwischen neutestamentlicher Forschung und Beitragen aus den Bereichen Epigraphik, Numismatik, Archaologie, Papyrologie, Ikonographie, Geographie und Kulturgeschichte sind in diesem Band dokumentiert.

The death of Jesus and its interpretation present both exegetes and theologians with a puzzle. For Jesus himself seems to have left his followers few clues, and the story of his passion is ambivalent, embracing both his reluctant self-surrender in Gethsemane and his reproachful cry on Golgatha. Some of the various motifs and images used by his followers to explain this event were taken over by Paul despite the opposition he saw between the message of the cross and any human wisdom. Yet what meaning do two of the central themes of his soteriology, the corporate, representative role of Christ and the language of "righteousness" and "justification" hold for us today? Or does Paul offer just as little help here as Jesus himself did?

A historical survey of atonement theology through ancient Jewish and Christian sources What is the historical basis for today’s atonement theology? Where did it come from, and how has it evolved throughout time? In Atonement, a sterling collection of renowned biblical scholars investigates the early manifestations of this core concept in ancient Jewish and Christian sources. Rather than imposing a particular view of atonement upon these texts, these specialists let the texts speak for themselves so that the reader can truly understand atonement as it was variously conceived in the Hebrew Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Pseudepigrapha, the New Testament, and early Christian literature. The resulting diverse ideas mirror the manifold perspectives on atonement today. Contributors to this volume—Christian A. Eberhart, Crispin Fletcher-Louis, Martha Himmelfarb, T. J. Lang, Carol A. Newsom, Deborah W. Rooke, Catrin H. Williams, David P. Wright, and N. T. Wright—attend to the linguistic elements at work in these ancient writings without limiting their scope to explicit mentions of atonement. Instead, they explore atonement as a broader phenomenon that negotiates a constellation of features—sin, sacrifice, and salvation—to capture a more accurate and holistic picture. Atonement will serve as an indispensable resource for all future dialogue on these topics within Jewish and Christian circles.

Following his well-received Apostle Paul, prominent European scholar Udo Schnelle now offers a major new theology of the New Testament. The work has been translated into English from the original German, with bibliographic adaptations, by leading American scholar M. Eugene Boring. This comprehensive critical introduction combines historical and theological analysis. Schnelle begins with the teaching of Jesus and continues with a discussion of the theology of Paul. He then moves on to the Synoptic Gospels; the deutero-Pauline, catholic, and Johannine letters; and Revelation, paying due attention to authorship, chronology, genre, and canonical considerations. This is an essential book for anyone with a scholarly interest in the New Testament.

The death of Jesus is commonly regarded as the one radically novel perspective from which the problem of suffering is viewed in the New Testament, as opposed to the appropriation of viewpoints present elsewhere in contemporary writings and in the Old Testament. Tom Holmén's focus on the death of Jesus as a source of New Testament theodicy reveals a two-fold reasoning: the lasting relevance of the theme of Jesus' death on the cross and theodicy, and the lack of thorough and sustained New Testament investigations into this theme. Holmén's argument focuses on the changes in the concept of suffering occasioned by the unprecedented sacrifice of Jesus. He explores both the derivative nature of suffering as God's retribution or a test for discipline – in line with the traditions known in the time contemporary to the formation of the New Testament – and the sharp, wholly new contrast of suffering as intercessory in the crucifixion of Christ, Son of God, appearing to the world as 'impossible'. Holmén considers many issues in his discussion, including the context of providence and covenant, and the problem that Jesus' death causes for theodicy. He also examines other perspectives, such as the writings of Paul, and practical considerations of coping with anguish. Taken as a whole, this study provides a fresh examination of the crucifixion's central role for understanding New Testament approaches to suffering.

In dialogue with a range of post-enlightenment critiques of Christian theologies regarding sacrificial love, Asle Eikrem presents an unconventional systematic approach to this multi-layered and complex theological topic. From Hegel to prominent 20th century theologians, from feminist theologies to postmodern philosophers, this volume engages in a critical conversation with a host of different voices on all the classical topics in theology (creation, trinity, incarnation, atonement, sin, faith, sacraments, and eschatology), also providing a moral and socio-historical vision for Christian living. The result is a unique appraisal of the significance that the life and death of Jesus holds for the world today.

Scholars of religion have long assumed that ritual and belief constitute the fundamental building blocks of religious traditions and that these two components of religion are interrelated and interdependent in significant ways. Generations of New Testament and Early Christian scholars have produced detailed analyses of the belief systems of nascent Christian communities, including their ideological and political dimensions, but have by and large ignored ritual as an important element of early Christian religion and as a factor contributing to the rise and the organization of the movement. In recent years, however, scholars of early Christianity have begun to use ritual as an analytical tool for describing and explaining Christian origins and the early history of the movement. Such a development has created a momentum toward producing a more comprehensive volume on the ritual world of Early Christianity employing advances made in the field of ritual studies. The Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Ritual gives a manifold account of the ritual world of early Christianity from the beginning of the movement up to the fifth century. The volume introduces relevant theories and approaches; central topics of ritual life in the cultural world of early Christianity; and important Christian ritual themes and practices in emerging Christian groups and factions.
