Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul

Richard B. Hays


Yale University Press 1989, 240 Seiten


Der Klassiker zur paulinischen Verwendung des Alten Testaments, der leider in der deutschsprachigen Forschung weniger beachtet wird, als in der englischen. Sorgt auch nach 30 Jahren noch für viele Aha-Erlebnisse.


Verlagstext: "Paul's letters, the earliest writings in the New Testament, are filled with allusions, images, and quotations from the Old Testament, or, as Paul called it, Scripture. In this book, Richard B. Hays investigates Paul's appropriation of Scripture from a perspective based on recent literary-critical studies of intertextuality. His uncovering of scriptural echoes in Paul's language enriches our appreciation of the complex literary texture of Paul's letters and offers new insights into his message."
