Series Information
Bibliotheca Ephemeridum theologicarum Lovaniensium, 229


Description: English summary: Did the author of Acts adhere to the Pauline philosophy or did he betray the theology of Paul? This volume presents a new approach to this classic question by considering Acts as a reception phenomenon of Pauline traditions. Fifteen authors contemplate the major themes of Acts: the death of Christ, the Law, the resurrection, the destiny of Israel, the relationship with political power, the authority of Paul, and others. French and English text. French description: L'auteur des Actes est-il un heritier du paulinisme ou a-t-il trahi la theologie de Paul ? Ce livre, issu d'un colloque de recherche a l'Universite de Lausanne, presente une nouvelle approche de cette question classique. Il ne s'agit plus de reperer d'eventuelles citations des lettres pauliniennes, mais de considerer les Actes comme un phenomene de reception de la tradition paulinienne. Parler de reception implique un jeu de continuite et de deplacement face a la theologie de l'apotre ; la reception n'est pas repetition, mais actualisation dans un context change. Voila le paradigme qu'appliquent les quinze auteurs de ce livre, en sondant les grands themes des Actes : la mort du Christ, la Loi, la resurrection, le destin d'Israel, le rapport au pouvoir politique, l'autorite de Paul, etc. Auteurs : Andreas Lindemann, Daniel Marguerat, Heike Omerzu, Richard I. Pervo, Stanley E. Porter, Yann Redalie, Jens Schroter, Benedict Viviano, Michael Wolter, Simon Butticaz, Claire Clivaz, Andreas Dettwiler, Jochen Flebbe, Odile Flichy, Jean-Francois Landolt.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Acts, Literature
