Reading Second Peter with New Eyes: Methodological Reassessments of the Letter of Second Peter

Series Information
Library of New Testament Studies, 382


Description: The letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude are among the most neglected letters of the NT. Thus, methodological advances in NT study tend to arise among the Gospels or Pauline letters. But these letters are beginning to receive increased attention in the scholarly community. Reading Second Peter With New Eyes is the third of four volumes that incorporate research in this area. The essays collected here examine the impact of recent methodological developments in New Testament studies to Second Peter, including, for example, rhetorical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, ideological and hermeneutical methods, as they contribute to understanding this letter and its social context.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Hebrews and Catholic Epistles, 2 Peter, Literature
