Die Logienquelle "Q", die den beiden Evangelien nach Matthaus und Lukas als schriftliche Quelle vorlag, ist ein doppeltes Bindeglied: Einerseits ist der Text zwischen Fruhjudentum und den Anfangen der Jesusbewegung zu verorten - ein Dokument, das weniger "christliche" Erwartungen, als eschatologische Erlosungshoffnungen judischer Jesusjunger thematisiert. Andererseits hat der Text auch eine Bruckenfunktion zwischen historischem Jesus und spaterem Christentum und eroffnet mit einem Blick auf archaische Formen der Christologie und Ekklesiologie Einblicke in die fruhe Jesusbewegung. Neben Fragen der Rekonstruktion des nur indirekt erhaltenen Textes befasst sich dieser Band besonders mit dem Entstehungskontext und der Theologie der Logienquelle und eroffnet so einen Blick in die Zeit, als die NachfolgerInnen Jesu noch Juden waren.

English summary: In the four chapters contained in this work, Andreas Lindemann presents 16 studies of the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles. In the first chapter, he interprets central texts in the Gospel according to Mark. The second chapter deals with the Q source, parallel texts in the Gospel of Luke and Acts (speeches, miracle stories, meal stories) and texts about Christian life in Jerusalem and the beginnings of the mission to the Gentiles. In the third chapter, the author focuses on theological problems in the Gospel of John, the relationship of the community to the world, the significance of Moses and of biblical law. The book concludes with studies on the question of a theology of the synoptic gospels, the theological exegesis of miracle stories and the image of Jesus in the gospels, in particular regarding Jesus' relationship to the people outside of Israel. Each chapter contains a survey of the recent discussion of the topics since the first publication of the studies. The intention of the exegetical work is to show how it can contribute to theology and to church life. German description: Andreas Lindemann versammelt 16 exegetisch-theologische Aufsatze zu den Evangelien und zur Apostelgeschichte, die wahrend seiner Forschungs- und Lehrtatigkeit an der Kirchlichen Hochschule Bethel entstanden. Im ersten Kapitel legt er wichtige Texte des Markusevangeliums aus. Im zweiten Kapitel geht es um Grundfragen der Auslegung der Logienquelle Q, um parallele Reden und Erzahlungen im Lukasevangelium und in der Apostelgeschichte, um das Bild der Anfange des christlichen Lebens in Jerusalem und der Anfange der Heidenmission. Die Studien zum Johannesevangelium im dritten Kapitel fragen nach dem Verhaltnis der Gemeinde zur Welt und nach dem Verstandnis des Gesetzes. Im vierten Kapitel werden ubergreifende Themen der Theologie und Hermeneutik erortert, so zur Frage einer Theologie der synoptischen Evangelien zu neueren Tendenzen in der Auslegung neutestamentlicher Wundererzahlungen und zum Jesusbild der Evangelien, insbesondere im Blick auf Jesu Verhaltnis zu Menschen aus der Volkerwelt. Jedes Kapitel wird mit einem Uberblick uber Aspekte der neueren Forschung eingeleitet.

The contribution of the Johannine literature to the development of Christian theology, and particularly to Christology, is uncontested, although careful distinction between the implications of its language, especially that of sonship, in a first century 'Jewish' context and in the subsequent theological controversies of the early Church has been particularly important if not always easily sustained. Recent study has shaken off the weight of subsequent Christian appropriation of Johannine language which has sometimes made readers immune to the ambiguities and challenging tensions in its thought. The Oxford Handbook of Johannine Studies begins with chapters concentrating on discussions of the background and context of the Johannine literature, leading to the different ways of reading the text, and thence to the primary theological themes within them, before concluding with some discussion of the reception of the Johannine literature in the early church. Inevitably, given their different genres and levels of complexity, some chapters pay most if not all attention to the Gospel, whereas others are more able to give a more substantial place to the letters. All the contributors have themselves made significant contributions to their topic. They have sought to give a balanced introduction to the relevant scholarship and debate, but they have also been able to present the issues from their own perspective. The Handbook will help those less familiar with the Johannine literature to get a sense of the major areas of debate and why the field continues to be one of vibrant and exciting study, and that those who are already part of the conversation will find new insights to enliven their own on-going engagement with these writings.

How did the visual, the oral, and the written interrelate in antiquity? The essays in this collection address the competing and complementary roles of visual media, forms of memory, oral performance, and literacy and popular culture in the ancient Mediterranean world. Incorporating both customary and innovative perspectives, the essays advance the frontiers of our understanding of the nature of ancient texts as regards audibility and performance, the vital importance of the visual in the comprehension of texts, and basic concepts of communication, particularly the need to account for disjunctive and non-reciprocal social relations in communication. Thus the contributions show how the investigation of the interface of the oral and written, across the spectrum of seeing, hearing, and writing, generates new concepts of media and mediation.

English summary: The Gospel of Thomas does not tell the story of Jesus' life; it presents itself as a loose compilation of words from his mouth. In it, the individual statements are isolated texts without the context necessary to study the interpretation of individual sayings. Nevertheless, in order to be able to deal with the text, there has been an increase in the development of approaches to a composition and redaction history of the Gospel of Thomas recently. However, those doing so neglected the fact that we have two versions of a whole range of the sayings in the Gospel of Thomas, and that these differ considerably. Wilfried Eisele studies these sayings, taking the Coptic text from Nag Hammadi and the Greek fragments from Oxyrhynchos seriously as independent text forms. The result is a number of interesting insights into the structures of the history of the text and the tradition of the Gospel of Thomas. German description: Das Thomasevangelium erzahlt nicht das Leben Jesu, sondern prasentiert sich als lose Sammlung von Worten aus seinem Munde. Die einzelnen Spruche begegnen darin als isolierte Texte ohne den notigen Kontext, an dem sich die Deutung einzelner Logien kontrollieren liesse. Um den Text dennoch zu entschlusseln, wurden in neuerer Zeit verstarkt Ansatze fur eine Kompositions- und Redaktionsgeschichte des Thomasevangeliums entwickelt. Dabei wurde jedoch vernachlassigt, dass wir von einer ganzen Reihe von Thomaslogien zwei Fassungen besitzen, die sich zum Teil erheblich voneinander unterscheiden. Wilfried Eisele untersucht diese Logien und nimmt dabei den koptischen Text aus Nag Hammadi und die griechischen Fragmente aus Oxyrhynchos als eigenstandige Textformen ernst. Daraus ergeben sich interessante Einblicke in die Strukturen der Text- und Uberlieferungsgeschichte des Thomasevangeliums.

The "Parting of the Ways" between Jews and Christians has only recently been extended to the question as to whether the Gospel Source Q still has to be considered "Jewish". Especially the question of polemics seems to be crucial: Does the polemical language in Q indicate a past rupture between Q-people and Jews? Apocalyptic groups in early Judaism adopted a very polemical language of judgement, exclusion and condemnation of rival Jewish competitors and highlight the conception of the eschatological damnation of a part of Israel. Thus, polemics in Q could also be interpreted as an inner-Jewish struggle for the true apocalyptic interpretation of the Torah rather than as an already completed "Parting of the Ways".

Whoever Hears You Hears Me

Here is a challenge to New Testament scholars to engage in a fresh analysis of Q. The authors argue that recent American study of Q has been dominated by those trained in form-criticism and oriented to Hellenistic rather than Judean culture, resulting in the extreme atomization of the Q sayings and reconstructions of Jesus and his first followers as Cynics, and in the de-politicization and de-judaization of the Q materials and Jesus. Also determinative of the current situation has been the assumption in New Testament studies of textuality, of an ethos of written communication and of textual models for analysis. However, as is recently becoming clear from studies of oral and written communication, the communication situation of Jesus and his first followers was almost certainly oral. Horsley and Draper therefore contend that it is time the interpretation of Q took seriously the oral communication environment in which this material developed and continued before Matthew and Luke incorporated it into their Gospels. This book, then, applies approaches to oral-derived literature from oral theorists, socio-linguistics, ethnopoetics, and the ethnography of speaking to the Q materials. The result is a developing theory of oral performance that generates meaning as symbols articulated in the appropriate performance situation resonate with the cultural tradition in which the hearers are grounded. Richard A. Horsley is Professor of Classics and Religion at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Jonathan A. Draper teaches at the University of Natal, South Africa.

The publication of the King James version of the Bible, translated between 1603 and 1611, coincided with an extraordinary flowering of English literature and is universally acknowledged as the greatest influence on English-language literature in history. Now, world-class literary writers introduce the book of the King James Bible in a series of beautifully designed, small-format volumes. The introducers' passionate, provocative, and personal engagements with the spirituality and the language of the text make the Bible come alive as a stunning work of literature and remind us of its overwhelming contemporary relevance.

Theologie Als Erz Hlung Im Markusevangelium

English summary: Christian Rose examines the image of God in Mark. Whereas in the past the relationship between Christology and theology has often been determined by theology, the narrator in Mark develops an image of God from the opposite perspective by talking of Jesus Christ. Thus the oldest Gospel depicts a certain form of narrative theology: theology as a narrative, and for this reason the author uses questions pertaining to narrative criticism and reader response criticism for his analysis of the text. Since the beginning of a narrative forms the basis for the entire text, the author also studies Mark 1:21-28; 2:1-12; 9:2-13 and 15:33-41 in addition to Mark 1:1-15 in order to show the references within the whole narrative. In doing so, he demonstrates that due to the deliberately polyvalent wording of Mark 1:1 not only Mark but Jesus Christ himself has to be regarded as a narrator of God's Gospel (Mark 1:14ff.). German description: Das Verhaltnis von Christologie und Theologie ist in der Vergangenheit haufig aus der Perspektive der Theologie bestimmt worden. Der alteste Evangelist aber schlagt den entgegengesetzten Weg ein: Er geht von Jesus Christus aus und erzahlt von dessen Auftreten und Wirken. So wahrgenommen, erscheint das Markusevangelium als eine bestimmte Form narrativer Theologie; es ist eine Theologie als Erzahlung. Fur die Analyse des altesten Evangeliums wendet Christian Rose deshalb narratologische und rezeptionsasthetische Fragestellungen an; einen Schwerpunkt bildet Gerard Genettes Die Erzahlung, einen anderen zwei neuere rezeptionsorientiert arbeitende exegetische Entwurfe von Moises Mayordomo-Marin und Detlef Dieckmann. Die Literaturwissenschaft weist dem Anfang eines Textes besondere Bedeutung zu; der Anfang einer Erzahlung hat Basisfunktion fur die ganze Erzahlung. Dieser Anfang liegt im Markusevangelium in Mk 1,1-15. Hier erarbeitet der Erzahler die Grundlagen fur das, was er im folgenden Text berichten wird. Neben einer genauen Analyse dieser Verse werden als weitere exemplarische Textabschnitte Mk 1,21-28; 2,1-12; 9,2-13 und 15,33-41 untersucht, um die Bezuge zum Anfang aufzuzeigen. Dabei wird deutlich, dass nicht nur Markus der Erzahler des Evangeliums ist, sondern dass durch die bewusst polyvalente Formulierung von Mk 1,1 auch Jesus Christus selbst als Erzahler des Evangeliums Gottes (Mk 1,14f.) gelten muss.
