Description: This volume collects previously published and yet unpublished articles by the New Testament and rabbinic Judaism scholar Friedrich Avemarie, who died in October 2012 unexpectedly. Founded on a great familiarity with rabbinic literature and a distinct theological interest in the New Testament, the articles provide much important stimulus for the issues involved: rabbinic martyr-theology, rabbinic and New Testament soteriology, the parables of Jesus, the historical background of Acts, Paul’s teaching on redemption in discussions on the so-called New Perspective on Paul, the role of ‘Israel’ in Pauline theology and issues of salvation history and free will in Paul. Five articles are published here for the first time.
Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Mishnah, Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature, Greco-Roman Literature, Early Christian Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Literary Approaches, Theological Approaches, Dead Sea Scrolls
