Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, this series brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The ZECNT series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor.In this volume, Thomas R. Schreiner offers pastors, students, and teachers a focused resource for reading Galatians. Through the use of graphic representations of translations, succinct summaries of main ideas, exegetical outlines and other features, Schreiner presents Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians with precision and accuracy. Because of this series’ focus on the textual structure of the scriptures, readers will better understand the literary elements of Galatians, comprehend the author’s revolutionary goals, and ultimately discover their vital claims upon the church today.

Ein unertr gliches philologisches Possenspiel

Die Art und Weise, wie Paulus mit der Schrift umgeht, ist vielen Exegeten eher peinlich, weil sie von heutigen Standards der Textinterpretation weit entfernt ist. Ganz besonders gilt dies für jene Stellen, an denen sich Paulus einer allegorischen Auslegung bedient, d.h. dem Text einen Sinn unterstellt, der dem Wortlaut widerspricht: In 1 Kor 9,8-12a vertritt Paulus beispielsweise die These, dass sich das Verbot, einem Ochsen beim Dreschen einen Maulkorb anzulegen (Dtn 25,4), nicht auf Ochsen beziehe, sondern die Alimentierung von Aposteln regele. Solche Stellen sind nur verstehbar, wenn man nicht die moderne, sondern die antike Auffassung von sachgemäßer Textinterpretation zum Maßstab nimmt. Zu diesem Zweck untersucht Lanzinger eine repräsentative Auswahl von Vergleichstexten aus der Umwelt des Neuen Testaments (Heraklit, Plutarch, Philon, Qumranschriften) unter der Fragestellung, mit welcher Methodik darin religiöse Traditionen aktualisiert werden. Als wichtiges Analyseinstrument erweisen sich dabei die antiken Rhetorikhandbücher. Es ergibt sich, dass es sich bei der Allegorese um eine in der antiken Welt etablierte und akzeptierte Verfahrensweise mit bestimmten Spielregeln handelt. Diesen Befund wendet Lanzinger auf die einschlägigen Stellen bei Paulus an (v.a. Gal 4,21-31; 1 Kor 9,8-12a; 10,1-14; Gal 3,16). Dabei stellt sich heraus, dass Paulus die Methodik der Allegorese kennt und sie in seinen Briefen gezielt einsetzt, um auf elegante Weise seine Argumente zu unterstreichen.

The "Greek-German Dictionary of Writings from the New Testament and Early Christian Literature" is one of the standard works for New Testament scholars, researchers in patristics, and classical philologists. The 6th edition has been completely revised in all respects - in the NT text-base (both with respect to its comprehensiveness and the provision of variants) and in the Apostolic Fathers and the New Testament Apocrypha (these have been incorporated as comprehensively as possible for the first time). In addition, the Apologists and Early Church Fathers have been cited far more frequently than was previously the case. Numerous authors from the Christian, intertestamentary and classical fields have been referenced for the first time. Over 250 new articles have been included. The new typography speeds up searching and makes the structure of the articles more transparent. Thus, it waspossible to expand the material by about a third without increasing the number of pages.
