Kultische Sprache in den Paulusbriefen
Vahrenhorst, Martin

TŁbingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2008 pp. xi + 420. Ä99.00

Series Information
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 230

Description: Martin Vahrenhorst deals with the Epistles which are generally thought to have been written by Paul, studying their contexts in the history of religion and their cultic passages. What is conspicuous here is that the Epistle to the Galatians is the only one which is different from the others. Instead of using cultic language in this, Paul increasing falls back upon the word "justice", which had already been used occasionally in previous Epistles parallel to the cultic terminology. Thus this study of cultic language in Paul's Epistles gives a special outlook on the continuity and the developments in Pauline thought.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Literature
