Is Paul Also Among the Prophets? : An Examination of the Relationship Between Paul and the Old Testament Prophetic Tradition in 2 Corinthians Hardback

Part of the The Library of New Testament Studies series

Description

"Aernie examines the prophetic material in the Old Testament and its relationship with the prophetic material in Second Temple Judaism, Hellenism, and the early Christian movement.

The subsequent analysis of 1 Corinthians constitutes an investigation of the effect of the Old Testament prophetic tradition on Pauls self-presentation in 1 Cor 9.15-18 and rhetorical framework in 1 Cor 14.20-25 as a methodological foundation for the exegetical analysis of 2 Corinthians.

Aernie explores the influence of the Old Testament prophetic tradition on Pauls apostolic self-presentation and rhetoric in 2 Corinthians.

The analysis of Pauls self-presentation examines the apostles relationship with Moses, the Isaianic servant, and Jeremiah in order to define Pauls position with regard to the preceding prophetic tradition.

Aernie analyses Pauls argument in 2 Cor 2.14-16; 4.1-6; 6.14-7.1; 12.1-10 then seeks to examine the influence of the Old Testament prophetic tradition on the formation of Pauls rhetorical framework. Aernies intention is to provide support for the notion that the particularly prophetic nature of Pauls apostolic persona affects both his self-presentation and rhetorical agenda in 2 Corinthians"
