Daniel Vorpahl untersucht die frühjüdischen und rabbinischen Rezeptionen des biblischen Propheten Jona auf ihre überlieferungsdynamischen Aushandlungsprozesse. Einer eigens entwickelten Methodik folgend werden Rezeptionen Jonas diskursanalytisch kontextualisiert und entlang einheitlicher Analysekategorien vergleichend untersucht. Das Ergebnis ist ein detailreicher Bildausschnitt eines innerjüdischen Rezeptionsdiskurses.

What happened when the writing of the Old Testament prophet Micah from the 8th century BCE was read and interpreted by Christians in the 1st to 5th century BCE? This research meticulously describes data from patristic commentaries and other ancient Christian works in Greek and Latin, as well as the remains of Gnostic receptions of Micah, and it analyses the interpretative strategies that were adopted. Attention is paid to the partial retrieval of Origen’s Commentary on Micah, which is lost nowadays, but was used by later Christian authors, especially Jerome. This work includes the ancient delimitation of the Septuagint version and patristic observations on the meaning of particular terms. Other aspects are the liturgical readings from Micah’s book up to the Middle Ages, its use in Christ’s complaints about Israel on Good Friday (the Improperia), and a rabbinic tradition about Jesus quoting Micah. It is noted whenever patristic authors implicitly use or explicitly quote Jewish interpretations, many of which are supplied with parallels in contemporaneous or medieval Jewish works. This first comprehensive survey of the ancient Christian reception and interpretation of Micah is a valuable tool for Biblical scholars and historians.

This volume is the first full-length book that offers a critical investigation into the composition of Jefferson’s Bible. In it, the author looks critically not only at what Jefferson includes, but also at what he chose to exclude in an effort to uncover the principles that Jefferson employed in selecting and deselecting verses. In addition to providing a full text of Jefferson’s Bible, this study places these documents within a historical, philosophical and theological context that illuminates their significance and relevance to our time.

This study examines how Cyprian of Carthage, the most significant bishop in the early Latin tradition, appropriates the canonical Paul.Cyprian, like Paul, is a pastoral theologian, so his pastoral concerns provide a helpful lens through which to study his use of the apostle. These include divine truth and eternal glory; the church’s unity, ministry and sacraments; discipline and repentance; and wealth and welfare. Examining Cyprian’s use of Paul in these areas allows us to move beyond a simple literal/allegorical paradigm to appreciate the wide range of reading strategies used by Cyprian: model, image, maxim, title, contextual exegesis, direct application, prophetic fulfilment and qualification. It also provides a different perspective on Paul than the one arrived at by privileging a handful of texts.This study of Cyprian’s appropriation of Pauline texts therefore illuminates the interplay between text, context and theology in his exegesis. It also deepens our understanding of the early North African hermeneutical tradition and the early reception of Paul.

Was hat der Pelikan mit Christus zu tun oder das Einhorn mit der Jungfrau Maria? Der Physiologus, eine ursprünglich in griechischer Sprache in Ägypten abgefasste frühchristliche Schrift, bietet unter Aufnahme biblischer wie paganer Motivik und Naturlehre eine christliche Gesamtdeutung der Natur. Über mittelalterliche Bestiarien findet die Symbolik des Physiologus Eingang in Kunst, Literatur und Heraldik. Die Bedeutung einer solchen christologisch grundgelegten Bildsprache bleibt indes heutzutage vielfach rätselhaft. Im vorliegenden Band wird die Schrift mit ihren Quellen, ihren onto-theologischen Grundlagen und ihren Deutungsmethoden sowie ihrer Rezeption breit interdisziplinär ausgeleuchtet (antike Naturkunde, altorientalische und biblische Bildwelt, Septuaginta, Kirchenväterliteratur, Rezeption in Kunst und Musik, Handschriftenkunde), um so zu einem historischen Verständnis christlicher Tiersymbolik beizutragen. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt auf der berühmten illuminierten Berner Physiologus-Handschrift, die vollständig abgedruckt wird.

Studies of the Curse of Ham, the belief that the Bible consigned blacks to everlasting servitude, confuse and conflate two separate origins stories (etiologies), one of black skin and the other of black slavery. This work unravels the etiologies and shows how the Curse, an etiology of black slavery, evolved from an earlier etiology explaining the existence of dark-skinned people. We see when, where, why, and how an original mythic tale of black origins morphed into a story of the origins of black slavery, and how, in turn, the second then supplanted the first as an explanation for black skin. In the process we see how formulations of the Curse changed over time, depending on the historical and social contexts, reflecting and refashioning the way blackness and blacks were perceived. In particular, two significant developments are uncovered. First, a curse of slavery, originally said to affect various dark-skinned peoples, was eventually applied most commonly to black Africans. Second, blackness, originally incidental to the curse, in time became part of the curse itself. Dark skin now became an intentional marker of servitude, the visible sign of the blacks’ degradation, and in the process deprecating black skin itself.

This book seeks to answer the following question: how did the doctrine of justification fare one hundred years after Paul’s death (c. AD 165)? This book argues that Paul’s view of justification by faith is present in the second century, a thesis that particularly challenges T. F. Torrance’s long-held notion that the Apostolic Fathers abandoned this doctrine (The Doctrine of Grace in the Apostolic Fathers, 1948). In the wake of Torrance’s work there has been a general consensus that the early fathers advocated works righteousness in opposition to Paul’s belief that an individual is justified before God by faith alone, but second-century writings do not support this claim. Each author examined—Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Epistle to Diognetus, Odes of Solomon, and Justin Martyr—contends that faith is the only necessary prerequisite for justification, even if they do indicate the importance of virtuous living. This is the first major study on the doctrine of justification in the second century, thus filling a large lacuna in scholarship. With the copious amounts of research being conducted on justification, it is alarming that no work has been done on how the first interpreters of Paul received one of his trademark doctrines. It is assumed, wrongly, that the fathers were either uninterested in the doctrine or that they misunderstood the Apostle. Neither of these is the case. This book is timely in that it enters the fray of the justification debate from a neglected vantage point.

This study confronts competing views of conventional masculinity found in the earliest, and often overlooked, receptions of the character of Joseph of Nazareth found in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew, the Protevangelium of James, and the Infancy Gospel of Thomas. Supplementing critical studies of spectacular gender performances in early Christianity, the author reveals deep instabilities inherent even (or especially) in seemingly ordinary or ‘everyday’ coding of masculine subjectivities in ancient Christian narratives, while also putting to the test ways in which canonical infancy material might be considered part of reception history. The study exposes the political mechanics behind Joseph’s colorful characterizations and opens interpretive possibilities for rethinking normative views of manliness in early Christianity and beyond.

This book aims to produce something not previously attempted - a synthetic history of Muslim responses to the Bible, stretching from the rise of Islam to the present day. It combines scholarship with a genuine narrative, so as to tell the story of Muslim engagement with the Bible. The book, covering Sunni, Imami Shi'i and Isma'ili perspectives, offers a scholarly overview of three areas of Muslim response, namely ideas of corruption, use and abrogation of the Biblical text. For each period of history the important figures and dominant trends, along with exceptions, are identified. The interplay between using and criticising the Bible is explored, and how the respective emphasis on these two approaches rises and falls in different periods and locations. The book critically engages with existing scholarship, probes received views on the subject, and thereby sheds light on an important area of interfaith concern.

This reception history of the Gospel of Matthew utilizes theoretical frameworks and literary sources from two typically distinct disciplines, patristic studies and Valentinian (a.k.a. “Gnostic”) studies. The author shows how in the second and third centuries, the Valentinians were important contributors to a shared culture of early Christian exegesis. By examining the use of the same Matthean pericopes by both Valentinian and patristic exegetes, the author demonstrates that certain Valentinian exegetical innovations were influential upon, and ultimately adopted by, patristic authors. Chief among Valentinian contributions include the allegorical interpretation of texts that would become part of the New Testament, a sophisticated theory of the historical and theological relationship between Christians and Jews, and indeed the very conceptualization of the Gospel of Matthew as sacred scripture. This study demonstrates that what would eventually emerge from this period as the ecclesiological and theological center cannot be adequately understood without attending to some groups and individuals that have often been depicted, both by subsequent ecclesiastical leaders and modern scholars, as marginal and heretical.

This study offers a fresh approach to reception historical studies of New Testament texts, guided by a methodology introduced by ancient historians who study Graeco-Roman educational texts. In the course of six chapters, the author identifies and examines the most representative Pauline texts within writings of the ante-Nicene period: 1Cor 2, Eph 6, 1Cor 15, and Col 1. The identification of these most widely cited Pauline texts, based on a comprehensive database which serves as an appendix to this work, allows the study to engage both in exegetical and historical approaches to each pericope while at the same time drawing conclusions about the theological tendencies and dominant themes reflected in each. Engaging a wide range of primary texts, it demonstrates that just as there is no singular way that each Pauline text was adapted and used by early Christian writers, so there is no homogeneous view of early Christian interpretation and the way Scripture informed their writings, theology, and ultimately identity as Christian.

The Bible contains passages that allow both scholars and believers to project their hopes and fears onto ever-changing empirical realities. By reading specific biblical passages as utopia and dystopia, this volume raises questions about reconstructing the past, the impact of wishful imagination on reality, and the hermeneutic implications of dealing with utopia – “good place” yet “no place” – as a method and a concept in biblical studies.A believer like William Bradford might approach a biblical passage as utopia by reading it as instructions for bringing about a significantly changed society in reality, even at the cost of becoming an oppressor. A contemporary biblical scholar might approach the same passage with the ambition of locating the historical reality behind it – finding the places it describes on a map, or arriving at a conclusion about the social reality experienced by a historical community of redactors. These utopian goals are projected onto a utopian text. This volume advocates an honest hermeneutical approach to the question of how reliably a past reality can be reconstructed from a biblical passage, and it aims to provide an example of disclosing – not obscuring – pre-suppositions brought to the text.

Im Zentrum steht ein in der Forschung kaum berücksichtigtes Motiv der Daviderzählungen: der bedrohte und gefährdete Emporkömmling und Herrscher. Dabei wird gezeigt, dass sich weder synchron eine Steigerung der Bedrohung festmachen lässt, noch dass diachron die Bedrohung Davids einem bestimmten Autor oder Redaktor zugewiesen werden kann. Vielmehr findet sich das Motiv der Bedrohung in den gesamten Daviderzählungen und wurde in unterschiedlichen Zeiten aufgenommen und erweitert.
Eben dieses Motiv wurde dann auch in der frühen Neuzeit aufgegriffen und vielfältig rezipiert. Herrscher identifizierten sich mit dem bedrohten David, Hofprediger legitimierten dagegen mit Verweis auf Natan und Gad ihre Kritik am Herrscher. Exemplarisch wird dies anhand des Werkes David von Benito Arias Montano, Deckengemälden in Schloss Eggenberg bei Graz und Zeichnungen von Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens und Jan Boeckhorst aufgezeigt. Diese Studie wirft somit nicht nur ein neues Licht auf die Daviderzählungen in 1Sam 16 - 1Kön 2, sondern auch auf den Diskurs rund um Macht und Ohnmacht im sogenannten Zeitalter des "Absolutismus".

Since David Hume, the interpretation of miracle stories has been dominated in the West by the binary distinction of fact vs. fiction. The form-critical method added another restriction to the interpretation of miracles by neglecting the context of its macrotexts. Last but not least the hermeneutics of demythologizing was interested in the self-understanding of individuals and not in political perspectives.The book revisits miracle stories with regard to these dimensions: 1. It demands to connect the interpretation of Miracle Stories to concepts of reality. 2. It criticizes the restrictions of the form critical method. 3. It emphasizes the political implications of Miracle Stories and their interpretations.Even the latest research accepts this modern opposition of fact and fiction as self-evident. This book will examine critically these concepts of reality with interpretations of miracles. The book will address how concepts of reality, always complex, came to expression in stories of miraculous healings and their reception in medicine, art, literature, theology and philosophy, from classic antiquity to the Middle Ages. Only through such bygone concepts, contemporary interpretations of ancient healings can gain plausibility.nity.

Current reception histories emphasize the world of Biblical readers, their socio-historical contexts, and the myriad effects of Biblical exegesis. This reception history studies interpretations of Jesus’ encounter with a Canaanite woman (Matt 15:21–28) as normative “scripts” that exhort specific types of compliance in a broad range of historical and cultural settings, revealing remarkably diverse understandings of Christian identity and community.
