The Theology of the Later Pauline Letters
Andrew T. Lincoln
0521367212
June 1993
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This volume investigates the respective theologies of the Letters to the Colossians and the Ephesians, and in so doing provides an accessible introduction to the themes and significance of these New Testament books. A. J. M. Wedderburn examines the background to Colossians, and considers both its readers' situation and that of its author. He asks whether the proponents of the teaching against which this letter is written were Christians, putting forward their views as the true form of Christianity (as in Galatia), or whether they existed outside the Christian community as a seductive alternative to it. Andrew T. Lincoln examines in turn the authorship of Ephesians, and tries to explain the letter's strategy of persuasion and the key elements of its teaching about the new identity of the Christian believer. The...


Celebrating Romans: Template for Pauline Theology
Sheila E. McGinn (Editor)
0802828396
October 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book brings international Christian scholars together to celebrate Robert Jewett’s lifelong interest in Romans by reviewing — and significantly advancing — five fruitful approaches to Paul’s most influential work. The authors, all established teachers in academic and church settings, recognize the need for analyses of the Bible that are substantial and scholarly but also intelligible to nonspecialists. The essays in "Celebrating Romans" will challenge the thinking of students and scholars alike, illuminating diverse methods of biblical analysis and fostering a deeper appreciation for and engagement with Paul’s most substantial letter. Contributors: Robert Atkins, Keith Augustus Burton, William S. Campbell, James D. G. Dunn, Lareta Halteman Finger, Jeffrey B. Gibson, James D. Hester,...


The Theology of the Shorter Pauline Letters
Karl Paul Donfried
052136731X
Sept 1993
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book breaks new ground in offering an exposition of the theological message of the Shorter Pauline Letters. Karl P. Donfried puts 1 and 2 Thessalonians in their cultural context, and identifies a number of key themes in these letters, such as the notion of election. I. Howard Marshall's study of Philippians brings out especially the understanding of the theological basis of the Christian life that underlies the letter, while his discussion of Philemon emphasizes how the main theme of the letter is the relation between the gospel and Christian ethics.

James D.G. Dunn
0802842917
February 1997
Paperback
·
 
Card catalog description
In this book James D. G. Dunn explores the nature of the religious experiences that were at the forefront of emerging Christianity. Dunn first looks at the religious experience of Jesus, focusing especially on his experience of God in terms of his sense of sonship and his consciousness of the Spirit. He also considers the question of whether Jesus was a charismatic. Next Dunn examines the religious experiences of the earliest Christian communities, especially the resurrection appearances, Pentecost, and the signs and wonders recounted by Luke. Finally Dunn explores the religious experiences that made Paul so influential and that subsequently shaped Pauline Christianity and the religious life of his churches. The result is a thorough and stimulating study that not only recovers the religious experiences of Jesus...

Theology of the Pastoral Letters
Frances Young
0521379318
May 1994
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Pastoral Letters have often been marginalised in modern New Testament studies. Regarded as not authentically Pauline, not very theological, and mostly evidence of the church settling down in the world, their patriarchal orientation has more recently futher alienated readers. Yet it was these little letters which mediated Paul to the Patristic church, and then provided scriptural material for debate about church order and ministry from the Reformation to the present. This study attempts to re-read the Pastorals in their original setting, revising many of the standard scholarly assessments in the light of recent work (especially developments in sociological study of the New Testament), and exploring the development of a tradition which proves to be theological in its fundamental structure and in its mode of...
