Karrer, Martin

Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2017 pp. 488. €82.00

Series Information
Evangelisch-katholischer Kommentar zum Neuen Testament, 24.1


Description: Die Johannesoffenbarung ist eines der wirkmächtigsten Bücher der Bibel. Sie entstand am Ende des 1. Jh. und ist tief eingebettet in die antike Kultur. Der Kommentar erschließt die apokalyptischen Bilder ebenso wie die kaiserzeitliche Rhetorik und die Anspielungen auf die damalige Zeit. Er verfolgt die Änderungen der Theologie in der Wirkungsgeschichte vom Lamm Gottes bis zum Geschichtsbild und bietet solide Information zu den vielen umstrittenen Fragen des Textes.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Revelation, Literature
